Here is a bunch of random facts that I’d like to share with you on this beautiful Sunday. They’re taken from this website Thrillist.com which is actually pretty cool and updated everyday. Read along for some pretty interesting fun-facts and my comments.
1-Neilasparophobia is the fear of aliens. That means you can’t get past the first 10 minutes of ET.
2-In an average life, a human walks 3 times around the Earth. That’s a long walk!
3-The chances of a plane crashing are 1 in 11 million. That does nothing to lessen my fears of flying.
4- The average life of a web page is between 44 and 77 days. Let’s hope TnT’s pages get to live longer than that.
5-Barbie has had 125 careers since 1959. Talk about ambition!
6-Charles Dickens invented the word Boredom. I’m glad he gave the English language something other than A Tale of Two Cities and A Christmas Carol
7-The first calculator (not abacus) was invented in 1642. My life would have been so much more complicated if not for that invention.
8-Phobophobias is the fear of phobias. Wonder how long it took them to figure that!
9-In chess, there are 19651882910054400000000000000 ways to play the first ten moves. Wow.
10- Only 3% of adults get the recommended 8 hours of sleep. College students do not belong to that category.
11-The Big Bang Theory was developed by a priest. No comment.
12- Micheal Jackson’s white glove was a modified golf glove. And it sold for freaking millions!
13-

Somehow I'm not suprised


14-Scrabble was originally going to be called Lexiko. Somehow Scrabble sounds much better.
15-A glass bottle takes 4 thousand years to degrade. Plastic is no better.
16-Chocolate is good for your teeth
17-You can die from laughing. Sad, but true.
18-The average smoker loses 2 teeth every 10 years. And that is one reason why you should stop smoking.
19-

Maybe it's time to repaint the bedroom walls


20-An average bannana has more calories than a KitKat. See, junk food is health, sometimes
21-And finally. High heels were originally made for men. So don’t blame Nicolas Sarkozy or Tom Cruise for wearing platform shoes.

See, it's a fact
