What is something that most people don’t know

1. There is a place in Africa, that is owned by no country, called Bir Tawil.

It is uninhabited land on the border of Egypt and Sudan and it is owned by neither country. Both Egypt and Sudan think that they don’t own it so they kind of just agreed to leave it owned by no country. It was created in 1902 and to this day still nobody has taken official claim to the land.

Multiple people have tried to claim it but it has never been taken seriously by other countries. The most recent person was an American who traveled to Bir Tawil and tried to make it his own country so his daughter could be the princess of what he called the Kingdom of North Sudan.

2. There is a tape that is considered as world’s strongest tape.
Braeön is lightweight, moldable tape that can hoist more than 900 kg.

One of the sad truths about materials is that if they are strong, they are also probably heavy; if they are lightweight, they are also probably weak and breakable.

What makes Braeön so cool?
A single ribbon of the stuff can pull incredible weight but an entire roll weighs less than a football.

It is tested & proven to withstand extreme force and conditions. LITERALLY as strong as steel, as flexible as rope and as malleable as putty. It is a high strength, lightweight plastic ribbon that molecularly fuses to itself in a matter of seconds. Simply heat, press and repeat to form the plastic into any desired shape. Once cooled, the self-bonding plastic hardens, creating a bond as strong as steel.
