22 Bewildering Comparisons That Prove Some Things Are Not What We Think They Are

Comparison is one of the ways we learn new information about the world and we are so good at it now, that very few people can actually tell how many times per day we do it. It helps us develop new knowledge about the things around us and here are some very illustrative photos that prove this point.
