- Dogs can actually sense cancer among humans. All they need to do is smell the occupant's breath.
- Dilophosaurus did not have frills, nor they even spit venom.
- Mantis shrimp can see the most colors, out of any animal.
- Other than Anchiornis, Sinosauropteryx, and even Archaeopteryx, we don't know what color the dinosaurs actually were.
- Back in the 1800's, some idiot released 25 rabbits to the wilds of Australia. That populated to about some 5-8 million rabbits or something. This contributed to many native extinctions there, including the lesser bilby.

After seeing this thread a while back I started reading websites filled with random facts (I've read over 1000 by now) and some really weird ones came up.
1.In 1386, France a pig was hung for murder of a child.
2.During the time of WWII Heinz made a pasta for German market only called Aphabetti Spaghetti and the noodles were swastikas.
3.Once Belgeins tried using cats to deliver mail, it didn't work.
I know many more.

Wrong. It is spelled "googol" and "googolplex". Also, a googolplex isn't 1 with a googol of zeroes. It is 10googol.
Edit: wait, you got that last bit right. I just misread it. The way I said it sounds better though.

Didn't know most of those (except the fungi one), but none of them are hard to believe at all.

The name

Is banned in Sweden.

Seriously.
