1. 15-year-olds Make Up 48% of The Population in Uganda
In Uganda, it is estimated that around 48%of the population is 15 years old. There are 44.3 million people living in Uganda right now, meaning that around 20 million of those people are 15-years-old. Does that mean 1 in every 2 people is be a minor? Now that is one crazy statistic!
2. An Octopus is The Size of a Flea at Birth
An octopus egg is the size of a grain of rice and is so delicate that it needs to be under constant observation. When the baby octopus comes out of its shell, it is fully formed but is extremely small, weighing around only 0.03 grams. Considering this fact, you would assume that it would be quite difficult to spot the eggs, especially considering that there are tens of thousands of eggs laid at one time.
3. Squirrels Cause Around 10-20% of U.S. Power Outages
These fuzzy little animals may seem harmless and adorable, but they can actually be quite naughty. Squirrels are creatures that like to chew on stuff and in this case, that would be power lines. Now, admittedly, power outages caused by squirrels are not as bad as ones caused by storms and are easier to fix since there's usually only one cable that requires repairing.
4. Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter are Banned in China
Not only are these social sites banned in China, but so are apps such as Tumblr and Pinterest too. In fact, over 8,000 apps in China are blocked because of the country’s expansive online censorship and restrictions. That being said, in no way does this mean that people in China are cut off from the social media world entirely–apps owned by Chinese companies such as TikTok, WeChat, and Weibo are commonly used in China.
