I Buy My Parents Things That Cannot Be Shared, as My Brother Resides With Us

Navigating the complexities of sibling relationships as we grow up can be challenging, often marked by a blend of rivalry and misunderstanding. As we evolve and develop our own identities, the differences in our values, life choices, and paths can further strain these bonds, making it difficult to maintain the same closeness we once had. One of the Redditors shared a story of the conflict with their brother over providing for their parents.

Gold Isn’t Rare Like We Thought

Gold Isn’t Rare Like We Thought
Curiosities

While choosing the best metal to use for goods exchanging, our ancestors considered many different types. Gold seemed to be a good choice since it’s resistant to corrosion, and you can melt it over a flame, which makes it easy to stamp it as a coin or work with it in any other way. Gold is not that rare but is not easy to find and extract in larger amounts with pre-industrial technology. Geologists believe most of the Gold on our planet came from space with meteorite storms more than two billion years ago. It’s one of the densest metals on our planet, and humans have mined around 180,000 tonnes of it by now. If you want to tell if the diamond you’re holding is real or fake, breathe out on it. The genuine diamond will remain transparent, while the fake one will get foggy.

We Don’t Know What’s Hiding in 95% of the Ocean

We Don’t Know What’s Hiding in 95% of the Ocean

Oceans cover over 70% of the Earth’s surface, so it comes as no surprise that about 50% of the U.S. territory is underwater. We’ve explored only 5% of oceans. 12 people walked on the Moon, but there were only four manned descents to the Mariana Trench, the deepest location on Earth. Pressure is the crucial challenge of going deep into the ocean. At bigger depths, temperatures are extremely low, visibility is zero, and the pressure is so intense it’s harder to send people to the bottom of the ocean than to send them into space.You can’t see it, but the pressure of the air pushing down on your body in deeper parts is so big it feels like more than one hundred adult elephants or 50 jumbo jets are standing on your head. The pressure is 1,000 times bigger than on the land. Meanwhile, in space, when we pass through the Earth’s atmosphere, the pressure drops to zero. We’re mapping the planets, but it turns out to be easier than mapping the ocean floor. NASA uses radio waves when exploring space, but this method can’t be used for the ocean, since the trillions and trillions of gallons of water get in the way.

Is it possible to “put out” the Sun? For example, what would happen if we poured all of Earth’s oceans on it — or even more water? Well, let’s find out. The Universe is a place full of mysteries. Since ancient times, scientists have been arguing about how space works. But none of us has ever doubted the existence of one thing — the Sun. Ah, the center of our Solar system. It’s big, bright, and... immortal? Nah, not really. Actually, the Sun is just an ordinary star. It consists of 75% hydrogen, a little helium, and a pinch of other heavy elements. Gravity holds it all together. But in around 5 billion years, the life cycle of the Sun will come to an end. The hydrogen inside it will run out. Our star will begin to grow gradually. And you can’t even imagine just how BIG it will become!

In 1946, people saw the first image ever from space. Kinda grainy, but hey it counts! But the first satellite maps haven’t appeared until recently. Now it is difficult for us to imagine life without GPS navigation. But one man made the first satellite-like map in 1502!At the time when photography didn’t exist at all. It was also impossible to climb to such a height to make a map. But this genius person made it just by walking through the streets of a small Italian town. And you know this man as Leonardo DiCaprio, I mean da Vinci. Let’s see how he did this.A well-known man in Italy, Cesare Borgia [CHEH-zuh-ray BAW-zhuh], invited Leonardo to the small town of Imola [stress falls on the ’i’]. He wanted to study the structure of the city carefully and asked Leonardo to make him a detailed map.

It’s hard not to wonder if there’s another form of life out there in the Universe when you look at the night sky. There’s this thing called Fermi Paradox. It basically says this: if civilizations that might live somewhere out there in the Universe are so common, why haven’t we found any signs of them? We’ve looked really hard, but we haven’t stumbled over any proof there are other forms of life somewhere in space. And we suspect there could be many civilizations because scientists have calculated there are possibly billions of habitable planets in our galaxy alone. So it would seem reasonable to assume that some of these planets could have developed intelligent life, possibly even civilizations that are more advanced than ours. So, Fermi Paradox basically asks, “Where’s the party? How come we weren’t invited?” And one of the potential answers to why we haven’t found any other form of life in the Universe is something called the Great Filter theory.
