1. Instead of money, a cash machine in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, dispenses 24-karat gold bars and coins.

2. Dazzled with 300,000 crystals, a Mercedes Benz is worth $1 million

3. Traffic lights were invented before cars.

4. By measuring brain activity, a device called MineSet allows you to control video games with your thoughts.


These facts came from the book National Geographic Ultimate Weird but True.

I totally recommend this book for all people that like facts about weird and wacky phenomenon. It’s one of my favorite books because it’s full of really cool facts that are all in one place.
