#1  V súčasnosti lietadlá lietajú pomalšie ako kedysi

V súčasnosti napríklad priamy let z New Yorku do Houstonu trvá 4 hodiny. V roku 1973 by let trval trochu menej ako 3 hodiny. Dôvodom je cena paliva, ktorá od vtedy poriadne stúpla. No a letecké spoločnosti si uvedomili, že môžu ušetriť aj milióny dolárov ročne, keď budú lietať pomalšie.

Airplanes fly slower today than they did in the past⠀ ⠀ A flight from New York to Houston in 1973 took about 2,5 hours. It now takes almost 4 hours. This slowing down of flights is generalised. One reason has to do with fuel consumption: flying slower uses less fuel and airlines are making economies like this, especially in a time when the price of fuel raised a lot. Another reason is a practise known as „schedule padding“: airlines plan for generous flight times to avoid getting in the situation of being late.⠀ ⠀ Source (short url): factourism.com/source/flying-speed⠀ ⠀ #factourism #facts #fact #factsdaily #dailyfacts #interestingfacts #instafacts #amazingfact #truefacts #worldfacts #coolfacts #allfacts #factoftheday #factsoflife #funfacts #didyouknow #illo #illustration #illustrators #vectorillustration #drawing #airplanespotting #airplanespotters #airplanemode #planesofinstagram #flights #flightlog #flight✈️ #airliner

#2  Fotenie „selfíčok“ zabije viac ľudí ako žraloky

V septembri roku 2015 spadol 66-ročný muž zo schodov pri Taj Mahal, keď sa pokúsil urobiť si „selfíčko“. Tento tragický prípad sa stal toho roku oficiálne stal 12-tym prípadom, keď robenie „selfie“ zabíjalo. Pri tom v roku 2015 žraloky zabili „iba“ 8 ľudí.

Selfies kill more people than sharks⁣ ⁣ {Weekend Repost}⁣ It is quite well known than sharks are not great human killers. In 2015 for instance, there has been 8 deaths caused by the toothed fish. Still, it is curious to notice than the same year, 12 people have died of something as seemingly harmless as selfies. Four of them were caused by falling while taking the picture, and the next leading cause involved trains.

#3  Upratovanie domácnosti je rovnako škodlivé pre naše zdravie ako vyfajčenie balíčku cigariet

Vdychovanie výparov z čistiacich prostriedkov zvyšuje riziko na vznik astmy až o 43%. Chemikálie dráždia nosnú sliznicu čo môže viesť k dlhodobým problémom z jej funkčnosťou.

Cleaning the house is as harmful for the health as smoking one pack of cigarettes Cleaning exposes your lungs to chemical sprays and other cleaning agents, which causes damage to respiratory health in the long term. It is especially true for people doing cleaning as their job. A study found out that over time, the impairment caused by cleaning is similar to smoking cigarettes. „This study suggests that […] long-term respiratory health is impaired 10-20 years after cleaning activities. […] The effect size was comparable to the effect size related to 10-20 pack-years of tobacco smoking.“ (A pack-year being the number of packs smoked in a day multiplied by the number of years spent smoking) ⁣ #factourism #facts #fact #factsdaily #dailyfacts #interestingfacts #instafacts #amazingfact #truefacts #worldfacts #coolfacts #allfacts #factoftheday #factsoflife #funfacts #didyouknow #illo #illustration #illustrators #vectorillustration #drawing #cleaningobsessed #cleaningtips #cleaninghouse #cleaningday

#4  V súčasnosti sú poháre na víno 7-krát väčšie ako v minulosti

Na začiatku 18. storočia sa do vínového pohára zmestilo 66 mililitrov vína. V súčasnosti ľudia pijú víno z pohárov, do ktorých sa ho zmestí až pollitra. Takže za posledných 300 rokov narástol objem pohárov na víno až 7-krát. Najvýznamnejšie zmeny nastali pred 20-timi rokmi, keď konzumácia vína stúpla.

Wine glasses are seven times larger than they used to be⁣ ⁣ The average wine glass from the 1700s was about 66ml, against 417ml in the 2000s. That is a finding of research conducted by scientists from the university of Cambridge. Comparing 411 glasses from the past 300 years found in museums, catalogues, and other sources, they found that their size got six to seven times larger during that time. The larger increase has been happening in the last few decades, leading to the question of what it can mean in terms of alcohol consumption.⁣ ⁣ Source: factourism.com/source/wine-glasses-size⁣ ⁣ #factourism #facts #fact #factsdaily #dailyfacts #interestingfacts #instafacts #amazingfact #truefacts #worldfacts #coolfacts #allfacts #factoftheday #factsoflife #funfacts #didyouknow #illo #illustration #illustrators #vectorillustration #drawing #wine🍷 #winelovers🍷 #winewinewine #wineglasses #wineglass #winehistory #historyinpictures #kitchenware #glassware

#5  Jedna ceruzka dokáže nakresliť 56 kilometrov dlhú čiaru

Priemerná ceruzka dokáže spraviť čiaru o dĺžke 35 míľ, čo je približne 56 kilometrov, a napíšete s ňou 45 000 slov.

#6  Staroveký Egypťania hrali bowling už pred 5000 rokmi

Bowling bol populárny v Starovekom Egypte už pred 5000 rokmi. Egypťania hrali bowling vo veľkých halách po dvoch (každý z hráčov stál na konci 4-metrovej dráhy). Jeden hráč hodil veľkú guľu a druhý menšiu.

Ancient Egyptians played bowling 5,000 years ago⁠ ⁠ If it was not exactly bowling as we know it today, it was definitely a bowl game. Found by archaeologists in Narmoutheos, an ancient „bowling hall“ was excavated, with lanes 4 meters long and a hole in the middle. Two players would play at once, each with a ball made of stone. One player would throw the ball aiming for the hole, while the other player would attempt to deviate its trajectory with their own, bigger, ball. Bowl games would remain popular during history, and pins will be invented around 300 A.D, presumably in Germany.⁠ ⁠

#7  Množstvo Nutelly, ktoré sa predá za rok by zaplnilo 1000 futbalových ihrísk

Nutella bola prvýkrát vyrobená v roku 1940 no a odvtedy si ju obľúbili nie len deti ale aj dospelí. Ročne sa jej predá toľko, že ak by sme si to všetko namazali na chlieb zaplnili by sme viac ako 1000 futbalových ihrísk.

#8  Dvanástim včelám trvá celý život aby vyrobili čajovú lyžičku medu

Počas svojho života priemerná včela (včely žijú približne 4 – 5 mesiacov) vyprodukuje iba približne 1/12 čajovej lyžičky medu. Takže výroba jednej lyžičky medu, ktorú si dávame do čaju trvá po dobu 12 včelích životov.

#9  Väčšina ľudí vie rozlíšiť teplú od studenej vody len za pomoci sluchu

Až 96% ľudí dokáže rozlíšiť teplú a studenú vodu len pomocou sluchu. Tento záver vydala spoločnosť Condiment Junkie zaoberajúca a špecializujúca sa na zvukový dizajn. Ak chcete zistiť či aj Vy patríte do tých 96% môžete zistiť na tomto odkaze.

Most people can hear the difference between hot and cold water when poured, just by the sound it makes  {Weekend Repost} A British company published two sound clips online: one of cold water being poured, one of hot water being poured, both inside identical containers. When asking people to recognise which one was which just by listening, the results were clear: 80% of people recognised the cold water sound and 90% the hot water sound. They presume it is because hot water is more bubbly, producing a different frequency.

#10  Plameniaky môžu piť vriacu vodu

Plameniaky môžu piť vodu, ktorá je skoro v bode varu. Je to kvôli tomu, že mnoho jazier na miestach, kde žijú plameniaky obsahujú vysoké množstvo soli. Takže jediným zdrojom pitnej vody sú pre nich vriace gejzíry.

Flamingos can drink near-boiling water. The majority of lakes where flamingos live have extremely high salt concentrations. The only source of fresh water for some of these birds comes from boiling geysers.

#11  To, že je niekto zlý vodič je čiastočne geneticky dané

Malá štúdia preukázala výsledky v tom, že ak neviete šoférovať môže to byť kvôli zdedeným génom. Výskumu sa zúčastnilo 29 ľudí, 22 z nich malo takzvaný „zlý gén na šoférovanie“ a 7 ho nemalo. Tí, ktorí týmto génom disponovali mali o 20% horšie výsledky v simulačných testoch ako ostatní.

#12  Fanta bola vytvorená v nacistickom Nemecku, pretože bol problém tam doviezť sirup potrebný na výrobu Coca Coly

Tento nápoj sa objavil v Nemecku v roku 1940. Bolo to z toho dôvodu, že spojenci Druhej svetovej vojny uvalili embargo na dovoz sirupu, z ktorý je potrebný na výrobu Coca Coly. Preto boli výrobcovia nútení vytvoriť nový nápoj zo surovín, ktoré boli v krajine dostupné. Fanta bola kedysi vyrábaná zo srvátky a jablkového pyré a preto bola jeho chuť úplne iná ako teraz.
