Once you hear it, you can’t “unhear” it. Scary.

Colors like white, red, orange, and yellow are all called “warm.” Your eye processes more variations of warmer colors than cooler ones.

Did you know that our Sun is actually... green? Okay, okay, I’m kidding. In reality, it’s... all colors you can imagine at the same time! Wait, what? I know it sounds like a joke, but I’m being serious. Can’t you tell? In fact, our Sun contains absolutely all the waves of the light spectrum. It’s simultaneously red, blue, green, yellow — you name it! Where do you think rainbows come from? When sunlight gets reflected off water droplets in the air, it splits into a bunch of colored waves that we can see individually. And when they’re all together, we see a white ray of light. Our eyes are unable to perceive the concept of “all colors at the same time,” so their combination seems white to us.

Why They Don’t Fill Soda Bottles to the Top

Soda bottles are always filled in such a way that there’s some space between the liquid level and the cap. That’s because these drinks contain carbon dioxide. This gas can expand if the bottle gets heated. If there’s no air gap in the bottle, it’ll break because of the pressure building inside. Also, when you open your drink, the gasses go out in the form of bubbles. And the drink is likely to overflow. The gap helps with this problem too. (Except if you shake it up first, then open it. No, I’ve never done that.)
