But are you properly taking care of your teeth?Important: This article was created for informative purposes only and isn’t recommended as professional advice.

Leave it to people wandering on Google Earth to stumble upon the world’s newest — and weirdest — places ever! Like this mysterious pyramid discovered in Antarctica. Soon enough the internet blew up with all sorts of theories regarding this unusual shape. Could it be a sign from a different life form? Is this pyramid indeed natural, or is it man-made? For starters, it’s not the first time we’ve discovered a pyramid in the Antarctic. The first one was observed by the British Antarctic Expedition in the 1910s and kept secret for a long time. Its discovery being kept hidden only added to the mystery. A second such structure was discovered in 2016, which further increased the interest in the matter.

Why They Don’t Fill Soda Bottles to the Top

Why They Don’t Fill Soda Bottles to the Top
Curiosities
6 months ago

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.)

I have to say — it would be hard to visit the biggest waterfall in the world because it’s underwater. Deep down below, there are fissures and caverns on the ocean floor. They form when water oozes through the layers of salt that are beneath it. This water is filled with dissolved salt. This makes it denser than the water surrounding it, which is why it ends up settling into these fissures. Such type of dense water forms a massive waterfall near Denmark. It’s a giant cascade that plummets 11,500 feet. That’s over three times the height of the well-known Angel Falls in Venezuela. So, the colder water of this waterfall sinks after it collides with the surrounding water that’s less dense.

Back in 2018, the biggest active underwater eruption ever happened — at least the one we could officially record. Scientists followed earthquakes that struck the area in the western Indian Ocean off Madagascar. Between 2018 and 2021, over 11,000 earthquakes struck a small island called Mayotte between Madagascar and Mozambique. The strongest one had a magnitude of 5.9. Until then, this area had been pretty peaceful. There had only been two earthquakes recorded over 50 years. Along with regular earthquakes, there were also some unusual seismic hums, like earthquakes at pretty low frequencies, forming deep underground. People couldn’t feel those hums at the surface, but researchers around the world discovered them and realized they were related to volcanic activity no one actually noticed coming.
