One Eighty || Useless Facts Part 2/5
Wow, with headlines in the news today like, Home-brewed booze could be cause of Northern Cape couple's death, These Nando's outlets will now be open for delivery and Covid-19: Expect a rise in depression as the pandemic affects mental health we firmly believe that pushing the economy with clever little selling gimmick’s and ‘designing masks with 2 layers, but wait, you can buy packs of 5 3rd layers at a cost to ensure you have great protection going forward’ doesn’t seem like the right thing to do as everyone is struggling at this point. Let’s rather keep giving some useless facts and try enthuse people with things that are completely COVID-UNRELATED.
So absolutely unrelated to anything going on right now, here we go… fun fact number 2:
It's possible to turn peanut butter into diamonds.
While most of us are happy to slap some peanut butter between two slices of bread, scientist Dan Frost of the Bayerisches Geoinstitut in Germany did something a little bit different with his peanut butter: He made a diamond. Frost studies the conditions of Earth's mantle and has found ways to mimic them in his lab. According to the BBC, the high pressures of the mantle can strip oxygen from carbon dioxide and leave behind the carbon to form a diamond. And since peanut butter is already rich in carbon, Frost was able to transform the nutty goodness into a shiny jewel.
Well, just saying after yesterday’s advice we gave on staying away from the fridge, unfortunately we have grabbed at the peanut butter now… if it isn’t going to be a diamond, we’ll just eat it.
Till tomorrow for another stunning installment of useless facts.
