We are used to thinking in time-space categories, and we tend to organize events in history and our lives chronologically. But sometimes it all gets a bit mixed, and we forget how little or a lot of time has passed. Like when you get an invitation for celebrating 20 years from your prom, and you can't believe it's been 20 years. Only even more intense. So, let's see what it's all about.
Stegosaurus and T. Rex
A period when the Stegosaurus was alive is approximately 150,000,000 years ago and the time in history when Tyrannosaurus Rex was an inhabitant of the earth was "only" 65,000,000 years ago, which puts him much closer to our time than the time when the Stegosaurus lived!
Betty White vs Sliced Bread
She's older than the bread! Sliced bread was invented in 1928, 6 years after she was born!
If You're Older Than 45
The Earth has two times more inhabitants than it had when you were born, according to the data.
The Time When Cleopatra Lived
It's actually closer to the opening of Pizza Hut than the time when the pyramids were built. Sounds unbelievable, but let's count - Cleopatra died in 30 BC, The Great Pyramid was constructed around 2560 BC, and Pizza Hutt opened for the first time in 1958. The difference is around 500 years!
