They say knowledge is power but where do you draw the line between useful information and random trivia most people don’t really care about? If we are to be honest, most of the things we learn throughout our lives aren’t really useful or essential in any way, which is why we tend to forget the things we care very little about.
While not all information is useful information, you’ll probably make sense of some of the things you will learn over the next few minutes. It wouldn’t be the first time we talk about weird things and it certainly won’t be the last. Still, if you’re in the mood to learn some pretty strange facts about the world around you, check out these 10 absolutely weird facts most of you probably didn’t know.

On these planets, clouds of soot fall towards the planets’ surfaces, and as they do, pressure causes the soot to turn into granite and eventually into pure diamonds.
