People were surprised that they didn’t know these facts

The world is a pretty amazing place. Every country has its own strange laws and customs, along with certain things found in nature that are simply extraordinary. In some countries practicing witchcraft is considered illegal. While, in others you can only own certain numbers of some animals, like guinea pigs. As you read these interesting facts, prepare to be amazed, but also to laugh out loud. Some of them are so strange, that you might wonder just how these are still considered laws in some countries. As we all know, change takes time, and these archaic rules used to be there for a reason.

Siblings

Identical twins share a lot of DNA, but surprisingly, so do their children. When identical twins decide it is time to have kids, it might seem like these children would be cousins but they aren’t.

The amount of DNA shared by cousins is 12.5 percent, and half-siblings share 25 percent. These numbers may not seem that important, but the cousins produced by identical twins have the same percentage of shared DNA as half-siblings, even if they don’t share parents.
