Hey Eagle Nation! Do you enjoy thinking about things that make your brain hurt? Do you like thinking outside the box? Do you like having your mind completely blown? Do you spend hour after hour in the shower, deep in thought? If so, buckle your seatbelts, because you’re in for a ride. This Week in Galway presents to you: Mind Blowing Facts!


  • If you didn’t know a language, how would you think? What language do animals think in?
  • Clapping your hands is really weird. You are smacking your hands together to show that you like something. Additionally, once you start clapping you never stop, you just wait longer between each clap.
  • Either we’re alone in the universe or we aren’t. Either possibility is terrifying.
  • A different version of yourself exists in the minds of everyone who knows you.
  • If coffee can stain your teeth brown, why can’t milk stain them white?
  • Your belly button is just your old mouth.
  • Drinking water with a minty mouth is the cold version of spicy.
  • By law, our cars must be road worthy, but the roads don’t have to be car worthy.
  • In the English language you can drink a drink, but you can’t food a food.
  • If you moonwalk on the moon, are you just walking?
  • Why do we cook bacon and bake cookies?
  • If tomatoes are technically a fruit, then is ketchup a jelly? Or is it a fruit smoothie?
  • Balloons are nothing more than plastic sacks of someone’s breath.
  • Taxis are weird, some complete stranger is driving you around.
  • Money is just a printed piece of paper, but is only worthy because we say so.
  • Christmas is the only time it is socially acceptable to have a fully grown tree in your living room with decorations all over it.
  • Earth is just one big ball that rapidly spins  around a larger ball made of fire that would instantly evaporate anything it touches.
  • On top of that, the sun and earth are floating around nothingness that spans on forever, and somehow the perfect conditions were met that allowed humans to live for thousands of years, up to the exact moment you read this.
  • The odds of you being born and living today are less than 1 in 400 TRILLION. Think about that applying for everyone that has ever lived!
