Chances are you've never tasted crude oil, and if you had the chance, you'd probably pass 99.9% of the time. Interestingly, however, crude oil tastes sweet when its sulfur concentration is lower than 0.42% per volume. Sulfur in crude oil is an impurity, and gives off the smell of rotten eggs when found as hydrogen sulfide. Sour crude oil has a sulfur volume higher than 0.50%. The terms "sweet" and "sour" originated from the practice of nineteenth century prospectors who would literally taste or smell the crude to determine its quality. [ ... ]

Started in Imperial China in the 10th or 11th century, upper-class court dancers would wrap their feet to make them permanently smaller.

Although this made it difficult for a woman to walk, small feet indicated that a woman’s husband did not need his wife’s labor. To make the feet even smaller, sometimes the baby’s feet were broken and wrapped tightly. Some baby’s toes were cut off! Footbinding was banned by the Chinese government in 1911, but continued to be practiced in some places for several decades, as shown in the picture above. [ ... ]

Aside from claiming the title of the largest animal known to have ever lived, the blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus) possesses a heart big enough to house a human. The heart of an average sized blue whale weighs 180 kg (400 lb) and is also the largest known in any animal.

During the first seven months of its life, a blue whale calf drinks approximately 380 litres (100 US gal) of milk every day. Blue whale calves gain weight quickly, as much as 90 kilograms (200 lb) every 24 hours. Even at birth, they weigh up to 2,700 kilograms (6,000 lb) - the same as a fully grown hippopotamus.

Blue whales have proportionally small brains, only about 6.92 kilograms (15.26 lb), about 0.007% of its body weight, although with a highly convoluted cerebral cor [ ... ]

The octopus stinkhorn mushroom (Clathrus archeri) looks like an octopus and stinks like rotten flesh in order to attract the flies that spread its spores. This fungus is indigenous to Australia, including Tasmania, and New Zealand, and an introduced species in Europe, North America and Asia.

As shown in the video, the young fungus erupts from a sub-erumpent egg by forming into four to seven elongated slender arms initially erect and attached at the top. The arms then unfold to reveal a pinkish-red interior covered with a dark-olive spore-containing gleba. In maturity it smells of putrid flesh.
