21 Facts That Are Like Slipping Into a Nice Warm Bath

Too often these days, the world can seem like a cruel, uncaring place. The rich keep getting richer off the backs of the poor, who keep getting poorer. There are wars, like, everywhere. There’s a guy on Twitter who keeps replying to all of your tweets with increasingly crude puns on your name. It feels like you can’t look outside or open your phone without being dick-slapped in the face by the apathy-industrial complex.

At times like that, you just need someone, anyone to tell you something, anything to suggest that the world is good, or at least getting better. There’s probably some species we’ve saved from extinction recently, right? Childhood mortality rates, those have to be getting better. That was probably what user subornion was thinking when they asked r/AskReddit, “What are some VERY comforting facts?” And you know what? Reddit actually found a bunch of them.

Do it quickly and you're chatting. It mimics the nose movements they make and you can see them wiggle their noses faster out of interest. Copy their rhythm to and watch them talk back.
BaldEagleNor 2y ago Crows will let other crows know if you're a good person. Feeding a crow in your backyard can quickly become many crows over time since the rumour spreads.

Sufficed to say, crows are one of the most intelligent creatures on the planet and they are truly underrated
