Everyone needs a little useless info taking up space in the brain every once in a while so I'm here to help!

  1. Rubber bands last longer in when refrigerated.

  2. There are 293 ways to make change for a dollar.

  3. A shark is the only fish that can blink with both eyes.

  4. All of the clocks in the movie "Pulp Fiction" are stuck on 4:20 (ha ha...pot head much?)

  5. All 50 states are listed across the top of the Lincoln Memorial on the back of the $5 bill.

  6. Los Angeles's full name is "El Pueblo de Nuestara Senora la Reina de Los Angeles de Porciuncula" and can be abbreviated to 3.63% of it's size: L.A.

  7. Tigers have stripped skin, not just stripped fur.

  8. The microwave was invented after a researcher walked by a radar tube & a chocolate bar melted in his pocket.

  11. The average person falls asleep in 7 minutes.

  12. No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver or purple.

  1. Wow, I was only aware of two of those facts before! And you've made me feel like a horrible zoologist (yes, that is my actual college degree) because I honestly didn't know elephants can't jump. I thought they could at least kind of skip or something...yay college!

  2. For those of us who mostly type with their left and right index fingers, no. 10 is a lie. lol


  3. lol! I never really thought about that with elephants. I think I figured they couldn't due to their size, but its nice to have facts like that floating around in my head. Who knows when I'll need it! ;)


I love comments!
