People on Reddit are sharing their wildest geography facts — and they will totally mess with your perception of the world. Some of these might sound fake, but if you pull up a map, you'll see they're 100% real.
It all started when Reddit user u/storm1902 posed a question to the internet: "What geography fact blows your mind?"
Here are some of the most brain-melting responses:
1."Australia is wider than the moon."
2."California is the closest state to Hawaii, but Hawaii is the furthest state from California."
9."When I worked for FedEx back in the '90s, one of the reasons why they chose Anchorage, Alaska as a global hub was that it's one of the only places in the world that is within 10 hours of the three biggest global markets: North America, Europe, and Asia! Who would have thought that a place considered in the middle of nowhere is actually the center of the world."
10."Canada has more lakes than the rest of the world combined."
13."Dust from the Sahara Desert regularly makes its way to the Amazon. In fact, without that dust, the Amazon might not even exist. The soil there is pretty nutrient poor, and that dust acts as a form of fertilizer. Two massive but opposing geological features — one full of life, the other very sparse — yet very strongly connected."
14."Alaska is simultaneously the furthest west, east, and northern point in the US."
