Bullets are one of those things that the world could certainly have done without but inevitably human nature would have come up with some worse and potentially even more mechanical method of killing. So whether you believe that bullets helped to avoid the untold suffering and sickness that used to kill most soldiers on the battlefield (by ending those battles more quickly), or you believe that bullets were an awful idea and led to unnecessary carnage and warfare, the fact is that they exist and they have certainly changed our world. So you already know everything about them right? Probably not! Did you know that when a sniper is lining up for his shot, he needs to take the spin of the Earth into account? That’s right, the bullet is going to travel so far and so fast that the very spin of the Earth can throw it off of its target. And did you know that every single year Americans buy more than 10 billion bullets? That’s more bullets than there are people on the Earth. And the craziest part? That number is rapidly sky rocketing. Get ready because these are 25 penetrating facts about bullets that will astound you!
