The planet that we live in has a vast history that we have already passed. History lessons at school often turn into boring classes where a bunch of names, years and facts are teched. Most of us have fallen asleep or found it very boring to go through them. But with, thousands and thousands of years of human history, we share a whole lot of interesting facts that are not included in the history books that are used in School.
These awesome facts might not be interesting in a positive way all the time. You might get to learn that almost every race of people as slaves to another race of people at some point or the other in the course of time in this world. Isn’t that disturbing and interesting at the same time to learn that it has happened to almost every race of people who had to go through the same situation at various points of time, but modern education and society only remembers the most recent reports.
This all started when a Reddit user asked a question from his fellow Redditers Doyouareisstupid. This made his question become a hub for all of these weird facts that no one really knew about. But now, this collection of information gives people the chance to know a bunch of weird things about the world that we live in.

That in UK, some time in the 12th century, two children of unusual GREEN skin colour appeared in the village of Woolpit in Suffolk, England.
The girl later communicated she and her brother had come from Saint Martin's Land, a subterranean world inhabited by green people. This actually happened! / Mulks23
Not so much disturbing as it is funny (at least to me).
The Kettle War. Long story short, Spain (The Holy Roman Empire) and the Netherlands (The Seven Republics of the Netherlands) were beefing. One boat from Spain engaged in a fight with a Dutch naval ship. One shot was fired. The only victim of that cannonball was a pot of soup that was cooking. The Spanish ship then surrendered. / ImANuckleChut
The US Government has a literal gigantic dossier of classified operations hidden from the public, no brainer. What's shocking are things they've actually declassified.
Among these documents is the detailing of one of the largest human experiments in history, when the US dropped a bacteria-infused fog on the city of San Francisco to test how well "germ-based" biological warfare could prove by masking it with natural fog, which occurred back in the 1950s.
It was widely successful. A specific case is that of Edward Nevin, who passed away from Serratia marcescens, a bacteria that makes bread turn red. It had spread to his heart from a UTI and he passed away
In 1977, the government released a thoroughly detailed report at the testament of Nevin's grandson. Nevin's grandson tried to sue the government for wrongful death, but the court held that the government was immune to a lawsuit for negligence and that they were justified in conducting tests without subjects' knowledge. According to The Wall Street Journal, the Army stated that infections must have occurred inside the hospital and the US Attorney argued that they had to conduct tests in a populated area to see how a biological agent would affect that area.
Imagine what they're hiding. / Shirozaru
Some ancient cultures knew that they could control population growth by denying fertile females both fats and carbohydrates. This process guaranteed that embryos would not mature in the womb due to the lack of food energy derived from carrying mothers. The embryos would self-abort. A certain ratio of body fat is required for successful pregnancies. / NagromTrebloc
From the fall of the Roman empire up until the mid 19th century, not a single city in Europe had a sewer system to dispose of human feces.
City planners didn't build sewers until it was proven in 1855 that the cause for all the cholera epidemics was drinking water contaminated by human feces. / PhilippTheSmartass
