People often believe in facts that they can observe and experience and the older they get, the more rigid their mentality of what should be and can be gets as they feel they have experienced enough in life to recognize facts but easy facts are not all there is to the world.

The popular rapper, Dave, said in one of his songs, “the truth is madder than fiction” and although that is the rapper’s artistic version of the not so popular saying, not many can say they still don’t believe it after accepting some weird and almost inconceivable weird facts to be real. Below are 10 weird facts that’ll make you question all that you might’ve ever known.
