  1. The name Jessica is in the Bible. It appears once in Genesis. Its an ancient Hebrew name made popular again by Shakespear

  2. The humpty dumpty nursery rhyme is in fact an 18th century riddle, to which the answer is 'an egg'. that's why all the books containing the nursery rhyme depict humpty dumpty as an egg. When those books were written and illustrated nobody said, "Hey, wait a minute! Why is Humpty Dumpty depicted here as an egg? It doesn't say ANYWHERE that he was an egg!', because everybody already KNEW he was an egg, even though the book didn't explicitly say so. It would have sort of fucked up the rhyme (and the riddle) if it had explicitly said so, wouldn't it.

    It's probably because of people like you that toothpick boxes now have instructions printed on them.

  3. There's no possible way you can call this a fact about more stars than grains of sand. I'd like to know who and how they came up with a factual count. It's not possible, it's just not. Intriguing video though.

  4. It does NOT rain diamonds in Jupiter. Scientists BELIEVE it rains diamonds in Jupiter. Stop presenting opinions as facts otherwise people may begin to think that not all information on youtube is correct. Like evolution. it is just an opinion and not a proven fact.

  5. The unicorn is my favourite animal as it is the purest animal and it is the greatest crime in the magical world to kill one and surprisingly I'm half Scottish.

  6. Plz explain number 1 in more detail. Planet Jupiter is the largest planet orbiting our sun so how can Russia have the largest surface area? Jupiter's mass is more than 300 times that of earths.

  7. Humpty Dumpty was the biggest baddest Canon, the king had. The new model army smashed it's in placement and Humpty Dumpty had a great fall… history!? No mention of egg until Lewis Carroll
