What’s the only food that never expires?

Show answer

Honey – when excavating ancient Egyptian tombs, archaeologists found pots of honey thousands of years old, and still edible. As long as the container is sealed, raw honey will never spoil. Although it never truly expires, honey can crystallize or granulate but is still safe to consume.

Fun fact: the oldest jar of honey was found in the tomb of a noblewoman in Georgia. As far as archaeologists have found, this is considered the world’s oldest honey – about 5,500 years old.

On which planet is a year longer than a day?

Show answer

Venus has the longest day of any planet in our solar system. Venus is unusual because it spins the opposite direction of Earth and most other planets and it’s extremely slow. It takes about 243 Earth days to spin around just once. Because it’s so close to the sun, a year goes by fast. Therefore, a day on Venus is nearly 20 Earth days longer than its year.
