Bluetooth

iloveuselessknowledge_2014-11-26_11-53-06

It is named after King of Denmark : Harald “Blåtand” Gormsson.
The Bluetooth communications protocol in the devices is named after this king, because he unified Denmark and Norway much like the technology whose goal was to unify computers and cellular phones.
The Bluetooth logo consists of the younger futhark runes(Germanic Alphabets), also known as the Nordic runes for his initials,

H ( hagall) and B ( berkanan).

Palmar Grasp Reflex

This, in my opinion, one of the most cutest things in the world.
When an object is placed in the infant’s hand and strokes their palm, the fingers will close and they will grasp it with a palmar grasp.
The reason why babies clutch your finger when you place them on their hand is because of that.
[This grasp is strong enough for the baby to support itself whilst hanging from a branch!]

There are other interesting primitive reflexes seen in a baby, which show the proper development of its central nervous system, like Babkin Reflex.

Biology

Even if you made a single turn of one of the Rubik’s cube face in one second, it would take you 1.4 trillion years to go through all the possible configuration.

(The universe itself is only 14 billion years old).

A tiger’s legs are so powerful, they can remain standing even when dead! Tigers when shot, sometimes bleed out and die while standing still.

Okay this is something very interesting.

If you distribute the time from the Big Bang to the present in a single year then-

January 1st -The Big Bang occurred.

January 10th -The first Star was born.
January 13th – First small galaxy.
March 15th – The Milky way formed but not the Sun.
August 31st – The Sun was born (4.5 billion years ago)
The Earth was born from a disk of gas and dust orbiting the new born Sun. Repeated collisions produced a glowing ball. The Earth was quite unstable in the beginning.

But,
Sept 21st – Life began (3.5 billion years ago)

November 9th – Life was Breathing, Moving, Eating. We owe a lot to those early microbes. They invented SEX or Sexual reproduction.

December 17th – Life came from water to land.
December 28th – The first flower blossomed.

6:24 am December 30th – An asteroid hit earth and wiped out Dinosaurs that could endanger the survival of Homo sapiens on earth (60 million years ago).
For the first time in the history of the universe the conditions were just good enough for Humans.

11:59:46 pm December 31st – All of the recorded history occupies these last 14 seconds. We learned how to cultivate crops, taming animals, Astronomy, Mathematics, Paintings. About 13 seconds ago we invented writing.
Moses was born 7 seconds ago.
Buddha – 6 seconds ago.
Jesus – 5 seconds ago.
Muhammad – 3 seconds ago.

A second ago we discovered that Earth is not the centre of the universe
And just when that second was about to finish we reached the Moon.
Voyager 1 crossed our solar system.

Every person you have ever heard of, met, loved, hated and kissed lives in those 14 seconds.

BMW’s world headquarters are massively popular. But very less people know that the design of the building is identical to that of a four cylinder engine. The design is a typical example of BMW’s four cylinder engine heritage.
The tower’s exterior is supposed to mimic the shape of four cylinders in a car engine, with the museum representing a cylinder head.
