150 Things You Didn’t Know About The Human World

Here's one of those hilarious lists, always fun to dish out a weird tidbit that is hard to believe. They oughta rename these lists to "* funny things you don't know about *". Hmm maybe somebody should make one of these lists to break down consensus reality :p I guess that list could be just as funny but in a very different way :p

Here are a few:
Some very Orthodox Jew refuse to speak Hebrew, believing it to be a language reserved only for the Prophets.

A South African monkey was once awarded a medal and promoted to the rank of corporal during World War I.

The Toltecs, Seventh-century native Mexicans, went into battle with wooden swords so as not to kill their enemies.

Pogonophobia is the fear of beards.

See the rest here.
