Bored? Check out these random but interesting facts

Don’t ask me why, but for whatever reason, I’ve always enjoyed learning and reading about facts pertaining to things I am unfamiliar with. There certainly isn’t anything wrong with learning, and sometimes knowing a thing or two about something rather odd can come in handy, for example, breaking the ice at a work party or something like that.

If you’re feeling bored or, like me, enjoy reading quirky facts, take a look at these interesting tidbits from

I find this assortment of information to be pretty neat, and I hope someone else out there reading this does as well.
