Don’t believe everything you read on the Internet!! Well sometimes there are facts that actually sound stranger than fiction.
We have compiled a short list of things that sound unreal but are actually true. Read below and see if you were as shocked as we were…
1. In a kidney transplant, your kidneys are usually left in your body and a 3rd one is put in your pelvis instead.
Contrary to what you might think, it is more of an appendage to your body.
This may have some lasting function that can support the patient better. Removal of the kidney needs major surgery that will result in more effort, risks, and cost. It can also put the patient in more post-operative stress.
2. The “butterflies” you get in your stomach when you see someone you like is a stress response
The fluttery feeling in your stomach is pretty much because of the adrenaline, a natural fight of flight response to life-threatening situations.
These days it is likely caused by other stress inducing situations such as a job interview and yes, simply when you see the person you really like. It is due to the reduction in blood aiding digestion after blood rushes to your muscles.
3. The infinity sign is called a LEMNISCATE.
Commonly called the infinity sign, in algebra it is called lemniscate, a plane curve consisting of two loops meeting in the middle. They are practically the same thing so calling it the infinity sign is okay and will be a lot easier.
