Random Nonsense [Not 100% accurate]

More things I did not know....

Yes. Here I ramble again, wondering how everybody seems to know what I didn't, making me wonder: "Where was I the last few months....or years?" Well, this time...I have very few things to say...with some sort of explanation[all accurate I hope...bash me if I am wrong in some way.] Just glad to be on the computer after working with cement the whole day though:

There's a planet made out of diamond.
-Well, it's basic. It used to be a star, and after it wastes up and dies, what's left becomes a planet. However, due to being in a binary solar system, it was able to stay far enough so that the other star would steal it's matter, but keep it's carbon core. So, we now carbon makes up diamonds, right? Well, it had the perfect conditions...and there it's formed.

VY Canis Majoris
I think almost everybody knows there's another star that probably makes our sun look...like a cookie crumb. Like this:

The way people get their boat uphill
-Now this was quite random...but honestly, I never knew people wanted to go uphill with a boat, which was impossible if you think about it in scientific terms. Solution? Building something big.

Saturn's Hexagon Shaped Storm
-It took a while until I believed the fact Saturn's storm is...strange. It's hexagon shaped[I heard perfectly, but not sure]. Just like Jupiter's, Saturn's storm is gigantic, and no known scientist, or from what I searched from, can explain both the shape of the storm nor how it started. They solved it by somehow spinning water in a bucket fast enough to produce similar shapes...but questions popped out. Either way, here's a gif to explain it better:

Underwater Lakes and Rivers
-A lot knew this...but had to throw it out there. Probably old, but it still fascinates me how I just realized this existed a month ago. Makes me feel outdated. There's actually a video on this.

Average Forum Poster cracks Zelda Alphabet
-I was surprised not many Zelda fans, mostly referring to friends that is, who didn't know a clue about the Hylian Language. Despite Skyward Sword stating that the alphabet was impossible to decode, for around 20 years, a message board poster called Sarinilli cracked it a little over a month after Skyward Sword's release. There was, apparently, a small sign in the game that repeated the same string of characters over and over again.


Here's a random image to...it's just a random image:

    It was a lot more than just Sarinilli who worked on the Alphabet cracking; I worked on it with her, too, you know. We didn't even crack all of it and a few letters were left over until Hyrule Historia came out.

    There was, apparently, a small sign in the game that repeated the same string of characters over and over again.
    And it was rubbish. Just random letters jumbled together; it didn't provide any help to us at all. :/

    EDIT: And it wasn't a small sign. It was the Gate of Time.

    Why yes...yes I have.

    @Mitsuru -Now I know. Although I meant to say in the handbook[Or I guess Hyrule Historia] for the latest game. Again, I was wrong...
