Some badass on Reddit did the math for someone living in an average-sized city:

10 new people per day x 365 days per year x 71 years of living = about 260,000 separate individuals somebody might walk by. 260,000 people in a lifetime x 6 murderers per 100,000 people = 15.6, or about 16 murderers.


2. There are little bugs that live on your face and eat the dead skin off of it.

They're called "demodex mites," and the older you are, the more there are in your follicles. They're spread by skin-to-skin contact — try to forget that when you get a nice 'ol kiss from Gramma.


3. In rare instances, dead women can give birth.


It's called "coffin birth," and can happen when a pregnant corpse releases gas while decomposing that expels the dead fetus out. This can happen within 48-72 hours of the mom's death.

4. Over 1,600 people have gone missing in U.S. National Parks, never to be seen again.

Unfortunately, these people tend to stay missing because tracking them is insanely difficult — even after the U.S. government put an analysis and reporting system in place after 9/11.

Essentially it transforms itself into a living, parasitic, but fully-functioning and otherwise harmless tongue. It's calledcymothoa exigua.


6. The last person on earth to have lived in the 19th century died a few weeks ago.

8. There's a parasite in cat poop that can literally control rats' minds, should they eat it. / Wikipiedia Commons / CC BY 4.0 /en.wikipedia.orgSharePin

It's called Toxoplasma gondii, and it changes a rat's mind function to make them drawn to the smell of cat urine, making it easier for cats to find and catch the rat. Literally leading the rat to its death.
