Who doesn’t like a random fun fact? It’s always great knowledge to use in pub quizzes, to throw in a conversation with friends or just to learn for our own satisfaction. Information sinks in so much easier in form of fun facts, doesn’t it? Today, I compiled a list about something I can’t live without – coffee. Grab your latte or americano, sit comfortably and enjoy. 🙂
This year, I decided to take a look at astrology – an interesting, though controversial subject – and each month examine one star sign and the personality features it allegedly entails. Last month we had a look at Aquarians and – to my surprise – the overwhelming majority of you claimed that the star sign, even if not the most important factor in determining one’s personality, played an important role and often influenced our choices. The characteristics of Aquarian personality seemed to match Aquarian representatives fairly well. I’m curious to see if the trend continues. Today, Pisces take over and they’ll reign until the 20th of March.
Over Christmas, I binge watched both seasons of the Crown on Netflix. As an anglophile, I’ve always been mildly interested in British royal family (and let’s be honest, compared to other reigning monarchs around the world, British royal family is probably the most popular, almost like a commercial product). The Netflix series left me even deeper in love with British culture, but also hungry for knowledge. About the Queen, but not only her – about monarchies in general. The last of Polish kings died in 1798, so I’ve never experienced life in a country ruled by royals. Which probably makes the whole concept even more interesting to me! So, eager to explore the topic, I went on to search for interesting fun facts about monarchies around the world. Here’s what I learnt!
Bananas are among the most popular fruits in the world. Sweet, tasty and filling, they come with a great deal of nutrients and vitamins. How about we go bananas today and take a look at this widely popular fruit? 🙂 Here’s a list of 23 facts about bananas which you’ve probably never heard of!
Star signs. A controversial subject. Some deeply believe that our fate and personality traits are all written in the stars, eagerly track horoscopes and when in doubt – ask the skies for opinion. Others play astrology down, considering it to be a collection of made-up fairy tales. Personally, I simply find the whole concept fascinating and – being naturally curious – thought I’d like to learn more about the idea that’s been growing and evolving for centuries.
There are many different types of horoscopes and many branches of astrology. This year, I’m going to focus on classic Western astrology and its twelve star signs.
Aquarius is the ruling star sign between the 20th/21st of January and the 18th-20th of February (exact dates differ between years). Since the month of Aquarius begins around today-tomorrow, it’s a good opportunity to have a look at the features of this star sign and its bearers. Let’s get started, shall we?
