I just think this is really cool. I’m a big fan of black, and I can think of so many awesome uses for this, if only it was possible for me to get insane amounts of it. But that’s never gonna happen, so I’m just…

Chemicals

‘”Chemical” is not a dirty word. “ew, that food is full of chemicals”. Yes, of course it is, and so are you 🙂 Seriously, you’re just full of it. ReAgent wrote a nice and short article about this, have a look: https://www.reagent.co.uk/what-exactly-is-a-chemical/ (last accessed 11.06.2021)

Koala fingerprints

Don’t play cute with me, I know you robbed the zoo, you fuzzyface! I’m not sure where I actually first learned this fact, but I of course need to link to something to prove that I’m not making up crazy stuff and to make sure…

Iron snail

Yiha, hot stuff. Check out more: https://www.wired.com/2015/02/absurd-creature-of-the-week-scaly-foot-snail/ (last accessed 01.06.2021) I have actually finished drawing some more facts, so exclusive stuff will come in the somewhat near future, but I had to finish this one first, because it is instagram-posting-day.

Pathogenicity vs virulence

This is of course easy to check in the dictionary: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/virulence https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/pathogenicity But I feel it is easier to explain these two together, and of course with an illustration 🙂 If you want to read a bit more about pathogenicity and virulence, check out Wikipedia….

Crying is good for you

I’m usually more for the funny facts, but sometimes I need to be a bit serious too. After working a lot on some other work (a logo and some cool stuff for my food scientist friend, I might post that later) I finally had time…

Deadly water

But relax, I’m not trying to be a fearmonger, this is not a normal thing. People can and have died from this, but they have had insane amounts of water in a short period of time. It will not be a pleasant experience, so you…

Fuzzy pig

Whenever I post something exclusive, I always think “aaw, man, I really wanna show this fact to everyone, buuuh”, but then I remember that you guys are the best people who support my work and you totally deserve something exclusive, and then I’m happy again…
