Most of us are aware of the basic facts and techniques of swimming especially if you attended those summer camps in primary school and middle school. Trainers there often tend to educate the kids about the basic facts and techniques which is a good thing because we all need to get out of that pool floats phase and try swimming as a sport. It is a great life-saving skill as well. 

Well, we just know the basics but there are some surprisingly weird facts about swimming that random people don’t really know about. Swimming has evolved as a sport over the years in different states and cultures thus every place might have its own set of rules regarding it.

So let us look at some of the insane facts. 

1. Kangaroos can swim as well

Humans aren’t alone in the water. Kangaroos are natural swimmers as well. They use their hind legs to propel their bodies through the water. 

2. Half of Americans and a quarter of British can’t swim

Even though it seems like every kid in America or Britain is taught to swim from an early age but that is so not the case. According to a survey, half of Americans and a quarter of British can’t swim.

3. Olympic-sized pools hold enough water to fill 9400 baths

If there isn’t water in your bathroom then you might want to contact the Olympic-sized pools because they have the ability to hold water for 9400 baths.

4. Hair Creates Friction In Water

Your hair creates friction in water which will slow you down so cover them with a swimming cap and shave the rest of if you want to swim faster. At least that is what professionals do. 

5. Breaststroke is the oldest stroke

There are a number of different types of swimming strokes nut history records that the breaststroke is the oldest of them all as it was adapted by the cavemen back in the day. 

6. Swimming goggles weren’t always made of rubber

If you think that swimmers in the past have access to rubber goggles then you can’t be more wrong because the first swimming goggles were made out of tortoiseshell. Surprising right?

7. Babies in water

Babies have a different way of responding to water, unlike adults. They tend to open their eyes and hold their breath while they are in water and they might move like they can swim but let us be honest, we all know they can’t!

8. You can’t wear a wetsuit to swim the English Channel

Well, we all know that the English Channel isn’t the warmest place on the earth but according to the rules, if you want to be officially recognized, you can’t wear a wet suit to cover the channel which means you will have to survive the cold water. 

9. The first woman to swim the channel was in 1926

The first woman who swam the English Channel made a new world record by covering it in 14 hours and 39 minutes. And the best part is that she was only 20 years old. Before her 5 other men also swam the Channel but she beat them all.

5 Unexpected Things That Your Voice Indicates To Another Person Who is Hearing You

It may be seen very shocking and unbelievable to you but this is correct. Most of the studies and research has found out that your voice is an indicator of your overall personality as well as your health. Just like we don’t have a similar personality, in the same way, we also don’t have the voices that match with another person. Just like the way you speak, it indicates many things like your personality, trustworthiness, height and moreover your fertility.

Here, in this article, we have listed some of the unexpected things that your voice can indicate to the other person who is hearing your voice. Scroll down below –

1. Your height

Did you know your voice tone can help predict your height that whether you are taller or shorter? If you have a lower and deeper voice, then you must be a taller person as the person who has s shorter height does not have a deeper voice. This has also been proven in a study presented at the Acoustical Society of North America’s annual conference in 2013.

As per the study founded by UCLA, women who have a voice with higher pitch are more fertile as compared to those who have low pitch. Researchers also think that men find those women attractive who have higher pitch voice as it indicates high fertility.

3. Indicator of your trustworthiness

Even your voice could tell how trustworthy you are. The University of Glasgow conducted a research study in which they have recorded the voice in different versions and other members were employed to listen to those voices to gauge out the difference between them. The finding of the research was not so accurate but the men who have a voice with higher pitch were seen to be more trustworthy and the women who have a lower pitch voice are seen as more trustworthy.

Your voice also differs when you talk to your friend or lover. Because you talk normally while talking to your friend and when you talk to your lover, you generally talk in a sexier and more pleasant voice. As per the study findings, people were able to identify the voices after comparing the voices while talking to friend and lover. Research has found that people change their voices according to the person they are talking to communicate their relationship status.

5. Your social nature

Your voice also indicates your personality whether you are introvert or extrovert. During one study, people listened to the computer-generated speech, which sounded like the voices of introverts and extroverts. The study found that people have different personalities and so their voices. People who are extroverts tend to speak louder and faster while introverts talk slowly and quietly.
