A THREAD
With around 200 countries and more than 7.5 billion people, the world is full of interesting, fun, and fascinating people, places, and things. So here are some facts that will definitely amaze you.
*in no particular order *
1 THE HOTTEST CHILI PEPPER IN THE WORLD IS SO HOT IT COULD KILL YOU

The "weapons-grade" Dragon's Breath chili pepper is so hot it's downright deadly. If you ate one, it could potentially cause a type of anaphylactic shock, burning the airways and closing them up.
the chili was initially developed to be used in medical treatment as an anesthetic that can numb the skin.
2 FACEBOOK HAS MORE USERS THAN THE POPULATION OF THE U.S., CHINA, AND BRAZIL COMBINED

2 billion active users have an account on the social media platform, which is more than the population of the United States, China, and Brazil combined. Facebook's co-founder and CEO
Mark Zuckerberg posted about the milestone, saying, "We're making progress connecting the world, and now let's bring the world closer together."
3 ALL THE ANTS ON EARTH WEIGH ABOUT AS MUCH AS ALL THE HUMANS

The total population of people who are alive on Earth hasn't even hit 8 billion. At the same time, there are 10 quadrillion (10,000,000,000,000,000) individual ants crawling around at any given time.
According to wildlife presenter Chris Packham, who appeared on the BBC, when combined, all of those ants would weigh about the same as all of us humans.
4 THERE ARE MORE TWINS NOW THAN EVER BEFORE.

You might think twins are a rarity, but they're actually becoming more common than ever. "From about 1915, when the statistical record begins, until 1980, about one in every 50 babies born was a twin, a rate of 2 percent,"
the rate began to increase: by 1995, it was 2.5 percent. The rate surpassed 3 percent in 2001 and hit 3.3 percent in 2010. [That means] one out of every 30 babies born is a twin."
5 THE WORLD'S QUIETEST ROOM IS LOCATED AT MICROSOFT HEADQUARTERS IN WASHINGTON STATE.

Silence is golden, as they say. And while it may not be worth quite as much as jewels to most people, it certainly was the primary goal for those who built the quietest room in the world.
Located at Microsoft's headquarters in Redmond, Washington, the lab room measures a background noise of -20.35 dBA, which is 20 decibels below the threshold of human hearing.

PEOPLE WHO ARE CURRENTLY ALIVE REPRESENT ABOUT 7 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE EVER LIVED.

Another world fact to keep in the back of your mind: According to the Population Reference Bureau, since the time Homo sapiens first hit the scene 50,000 years ago,
more than 108 billion members of our species have been born. And a large chunk of that number is alive right now. According to the bureau, the number of people alive today represents a whopping seven percent of the total number of humans who have ever lived.

MUHAMMAD IS THOUGHT TO BE THE MOST POPULAR NAME IN THE WORLD.

Step aside John, James, Mary, and Jane—the most popular name in the world is believed to be Muhammad. According to the Independent, an estimated 150 million men and boys around the world share this name.
The popularity is thanks to a Muslim tradition of naming each first-born son after the Islamic prophet.

NORTH KOREA AND CUBA ARE THE ONLY PLACES YOU CAN'T BUY COCA-COLA.

No matter where you go, it's comforting to know you can always enjoy a Coca-Cola. While this fizzy drink is sold practically everywhere, it still hasn't (officially) made its way to North Korea or Cuba,
according to the BBC. That's because these countries are under long-term U.S. trade embargoes.

FOUR BABIES ARE BORN EVERY SECOND.

Every second, we welcome four new babies into our overall population. Do a little math and you'll find out that means there are approximately 250 births each minute,
15,000 each hour, and 360,000 each day. In a full year, there are around 131.4 million babies born on Earth, according to the Ecology Global Network.
10
NEARLY 2 PEOPLE DIE EVERY SECOND

While four babies are born on Earth every second, it's estimated that around two people pass away at the same time. That means that 105 people die each minute, 6,316 people die each hour, 151,600 people die each day. T
