Here I present some of the interesting facts about the Liquids .
- Scorpion venom is the most expensive liquid on earth at $38,858,507.46 per gallon, far surpassing Thailand cobra venom which is $152,835.82 a gallon.
- Cats kidneys are so efficient that they can drink Salt Water (Sea Water) to rehydrate themselves.
- Octopuses have copper-based blood instead of iron-based blood, which is why their blood is blue rather than red.
- Habitual light to moderate alcohol intake (up to 1 drink per day for women and 1 or 2 drinks per day for men) is associated with decreased risks for total mortality, coronary artery disease, diabetes mellitus, congestive heart failure, and stroke. In the U.S one drink is usually considered to be 12 ounce (350ml) of beer, 5 ounces (150ml) of wine, or 1½ ounces (45ml) of spirits (hard liquor such as gin or whiskey). Each delivers about 12 to 14 grams of alcohol.
- Astronauts are trained to empty their bladders every two hours because in space there is low gravity so don’t feel the weight of liquid by the bladder and stretch receptor present in it.
- The red juice that often collects in a package of red meat is not blood. Nearly all blood is removed during processing. The red liquid, instead, is a mixture of water and a protein called myoglobin.
- In Shampoo and Moisturizer Ads, “Essential Oils” means that the oil gives off a distinctive scent, not that they’re essential.
- 5000 years ago the Chinese created nail polish and used it to symbolize wealth and power among the elite. It was forbidden among the general population. Reports exist of commoners sentenced to die for wearing it.
- Bororo, the indigenous people of Brazil are one of the few groups of people who all have the same blood type. They all have type O blood.
- When helium is cooled to almost absolute zero, the lowest temperature possible, it becomes a liquid with surprising properties. It can flow against gravity and will start running up and over the lip of a glass container.
