22 Little-Known Facts That Will Change How You See the World

Have you ever learned something that changes the way you think about things? It's a rare experience, but a transformative one. The facts in this gallery are designed to get you to see the world in a new way, and hopefully, there are a few you haven't read before. 


Did you know that the ancient Egyptians built the Great Pyramid of Giza while woolly mammoths were still roaming the Earth? Ancient humans are so much more creative than we give them credit for, but seeing as they're just the same as us that's unsurprising. A group of early humans even sailed to Australia on their own, before any civilization had real means of sea travel. Those blokes must have been flat-out like a lizard drinking.


It's amazing early humans managed to survive at all. At one point there were only 10,000 of what we would describe as humans, and they coexisted and mated with Neanderthals and other early advanced primates. We could have turned out quite differently, and lots more hairy. 


Check out those facts, and plenty of others about our marvelous world in this gallery of little-known things that can change how you see the world.
