Ten Fun Facts – The Home of Fun Facts!

Welcome to Ten Fun Facts, a website full of interesting facts on a variety of topics within twelve categories.

You have hit the homepage, let’s start you off with ten random fun facts you may find interesting:

  • There are an estimated 10 million galaxies in the observable universe. The Milky Way, which contains our solar system, is just one of them.
  • Earth isn’t actually round. It’s an oblate spheroid, meaning it’s flattened at the poles and bulges at the equator.
  • The world’s oceans contain enough salt to cover all of Earth’s landmass with a layer approximately 500 feet (152 meters) thick.
  • Only 1% of the water on Earth is fresh water that we can use; the rest is either salty ocean water or frozen in glaciers or ice caps. Of that 1%, almost 69% is used for agriculture irrigation and another 26% goes towards industrial uses like cooling power plants and manufacturing processes. That leaves less than 1% for domestic use by people like you and me!
  • Every day, the Sun loses 360 million tons of material through what’s called “solar wind.” At this rate, it will completely exhaust itself in about 10 billion years .
  • A single raindrop falling from the sky can travel up to 20 miles per hour.
  • There are more than 60,000 miles of blood vessels in an adult human body. If you laid them out end-to-end, they would stretch around the world almost four times!
  • Every day, your heart beats 100,000 times. That’s over 35 million times a year and more than 2.5 billion times in a lifetime!
  • If you were to weigh all the ants on Earth, they would outweigh all the humans. There are thought to be around 10 quadrillion (10,000,000,000,000,000) ants alive at any given time.
  • The human brain is about 75% water.
