I don’t remember learning any of these interesting facts in school. Studies show that people forget 20% of what they just learned in 20 minutes and 77% in six days. So there is a chance that one or two of these may have been covered and the information went in one ear and out the other. Take a look at these and see how many you remember after 6 days.
1. I always wondered where the term twit came from. So when someone calls you a twit they are calling you a pregnant goldfish?
2. Well that’s bananas… see what I did there?
3. And we lose about 50 to 100 strands every day.
4. Michel Jordan also donated the first year of his salary with the Washington Wizards to the recovery efforts and victims of 9/11. That sum was $1 million dollars.
5. The hedgehog is one of the more recent domestication.
6. Well that sounds pleasant. Yuck!
7. I can’t really picture a bird in zero gravity anyway.
8. Just let that sink in. Mmm….math.
9. That is one expensive steak!
10. No kneecaps or cares in the world.
11. I think they should also have to be organ donors.
12. Shark attacks are actually on the rise, but this fact is still true. For now.
13. They wouldn’t want you to notice all the time and money you are spending, now would they?
14. This is true. Next time you take a road trip, test this one out!
15. They must have had some efficient fire drills back in the day.
16. And that translates in English to, “town of our lady the Queen of Angels of the little Portion.”
17. Yeah but can you do long division?
18. If this was true of spiders, I would be moving to one of these places tomorrow.
19. Alan Shepard hit them right before they took off from the moon at the end of the Apollo 14 mission. Some sources say that he only hit two balls.
20. My what big eyes you have.
21. What a bird brain.
22. Who happens to be the world’s largest zipper manufacture.
23. I know I will be thinking about this one the next time I put lipstick on.
24. This is because it is high in phosphorus. Or because cats are supernatural freaks of nature. You be the judge.
25. But how many will live to be 115?
So now you may know a little more than you knew a few minutes ago. Store this new-found knowledge in case you need it. You never know when it will come in handy. It could win you a million dollars. Probably not, but you never know.
