Babies are born without kneecaps. Kneecaps form between the ages of 2 and 6.

I have a niece and a nephew who are both 1 year old so this fact is freaking me out right now. Like, they don't have kneecaps? Weird! Ahhhh!!!

Fact: Mmm, I didn't get this from the internet or anything, but most cockroaches really like carrots. Out of all the fruits and veggies I've experimented with, carrots are the most widespread hit. They also take longer to rot than fruit, and don't smell bad, so they're my go-to for roach food.

Of course, take this with a grain of salt, but I read that human stomach acid is strong enough to dissolve razor blades!

Human voice boxes are lower down the throat (iirc) in babies to prevent choking, and move up the throat later in growth to allow speaking.
