Weird What If? Questions That You Might Have Pondered In Your Life
Facts and DIY
On 14th May 2018
What would happen if the world just stopped spinning or you didn't shower for a whole year? What about not speaking a word for that same amount of time? These are just some of the questions that I will answer for you today. Are you ready? Well, let's get started.
#1 What If Dinosaurs Never Went Extinct?
If the meteorite that led to the extinction of the dinosaurs had veered off course just a little our planet might look very different. Without the dinosaurs around, mammals rose up and became the dominant species on Earth but that wouldn't be the case if they had lived. Reptiles would rule this world and while it's possible that they could develop humanlike adaptations it's not very likely.
#2 What If People Could Move At The Speed Of Light?
If you could move at the speed of light time would start to slow down. For a person standing still an hour would pass but for someone who was running that same amount of time only half an hour would have passed. You would also see the world through a sort of tunnel vision with it being dark except the view ahead of you. If you kept moving faster you would eventually only see darkness because you would be moving faster than visible light.
#3 What If You Cloned Yourself?
Everyone thinks that if you were cloned it would be an exact copy of you. This is one fact that sci-fi flicks have totally wrong. Your clone would not be an exact copy of you as your appearance is heavily affected by the environment of the womb. The clone would also have a completely different personality than you since you were shaped by the experiences of your life. Your clone would also probably have very bad health as almost all cloned creatures are born with some kind of serious birth defect.
#4 What If You Lived On Mars?
If we are ever to colonize Mars it will take a lot of work. Not just on machines to help us survive but from our bodies in general. Because Mars has a lower gravity than Earth your red blood cell count would decrease leading to a weaker immune system. There is also the problem of developing cancer from all the unfiltered radiation that we don't have to worry about on Earth because of our atmosphere. If that wasn't bad enough, the chemicals found in the soil on Mars would cause your thyroid to function less efficiently and spike your blood pressure before finally causing severe lung damage, so even eating food grown on the planet would be dangerous. That's a lot to overcome.
