Science is amazing... but it can also be frightening and mind-boggling at times. Although if you didn't enjoy science classes at school, it's difficult not to be astonished by scientific facts as an adult. Honestly, take a moment to consider what the natural environment and current technologies are capable of. It's genuinely remarkable, and chances are you're only aware of a small portion of the fascinating and bizarre facts discovered by scientists thus far.

And besides, researchers are continuously learning new things. Something we don't currently know could be unearthed tomorrow so that we can always broaden our horizons and our stock of random tidbits to amuse our friends. Be wary of scientific "facts" that are untrue (unlike the very real 34 on just this list). Know that a sense of humor can be just as essential as understanding; you should also check out all these pretty funny science jokes--we we were not expecting these punchlines.
