We've all got moments where we learn something amazing or shocking for the first time. And full disclosure: not all of these "facts" are true, but we still found them amusing nonetheless, and we hope you will too.
Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the most useless facts that they ever came across. So many of us are walking around with heads full of trivia tidbits that don't actually serve any purpose in the majority of our lives. Might as well pocket some of these the next time a conversation needs to be spiced up by some random information, or you're trying to win a game of trivia.
When you start thinking about your life in the grand scheme of things, nothing truly matters because we're all just tiny specks of dust existing on a stupid little rock that's floating in circles around a slightly bigger rock that happens to be on fire. Anyway, ignore that existential bit and enjoy some fascinating nerdy facts about space!
Some of these odds will make you feel a little better about your life (ex: not dying via a bee sting), and some of them will just make you feel bad (no supermodel girlfriend for you, womp womp), but we promise all of them are fascinating AF.
If any of these things have ever happened to you, we'd like to hear about it in the comments!
Times change quickly these days. Hell, 2009 was a whole different world from 2019. But imagine going back 110 years ago, to 1909. Things were way different back then. I would almost say incomparable, but fact number 4 sounds just like people today, so I guess we can't have changed that much. Anyway, if you rekcon you know some things about what went down in the 1900s, have a squiz at these weird facts. They are random as f*ck and make me glad that I'm not living back then. Plus, you'll be king/queen of the next trivia night you attend.
There are two kinds of people in the world: people who have a detailed knowledge about one topic, and people who know a lot of random facts about random things. This list is for the latter group of people. Prepare to get your WTF fact database updated with some fresh, weird, random facts. You're welcome.
Monty Python and The Holy Grail must be the most quotable movie ever. There are far too many chances to break out a one-liner from the movie in the middle of a conversation, or otherwise when it's totally uncalled for...just cause it was that great and deserves having homage paid to as much as possible.
Apparently, that loveably stupid character was supposed to get more screen time, but it just didn't pan out. Between marketing and production of the movie, the creators realized they'd have to make a change. Hey, I'm still happy with their work. Also God bless Alan Tudyk, aka Wash aka Pirate Steve. For somefunny and cool knowledge about the original Jurassic Park, check this out.
If you're old and aren't familiar with what "Kahoot" is, it's a user-generated educational quiz game played by students all over the world. Once a student creates a quiz, aka a "Kahoot," it generates a pin number that others can enter into their computers or mobile devices in order to join in. A trivia question with four multiple-choice answers pops up on a communal screen and players can pick their answer.
As you can probably guess, students go nuts over this game - probably because it's a hell of a lot more interesting than sitting in class listening to a boring-ass teacher talk for an hour!
