Fun Facts

The last time I did Fun Facts people raved about how informative and funny they were so I wanted to start a new weekend tradition.

Each year 16 million thunderstorms happen around the world, and at any given moment, there are about 2,000 thunderstorms in progress. (nssl.noaa.gov)

Sweden has 267,570 islands, the most of any country in the world.

Australia contains a number of pink lakes, but the most stunning is the Pepto Bismol-colored Lake Hillier. The color may be the result of certain algae. (australia.com)

At over 29,000 feet tall, Mt. Everest is the highest point on Earth, but it doesn’t compare to the deepest point on Earth, the Mariana Trench, which is over 36,000 feet deep—nearly seven miles—in the Pacific Ocean.

This isn’t exactly a “fun” fact, but there are over 200 dead bodies of climbers on Mt. Everest because it’s so difficult to bring them down. (outsideonline.com)

Enjoy!

  1. I had no idea Sweden had so many islands and there are pink lakes in Australia. I did have an idea about bodies left on Mt Everest but would not have guessed as many as 200! So interesting!
