Okay, so it's not that thought-provoking. Or maybe it is. Let me know later because I'm getting myself all confused at the moment.

I have this friend who's obsessed with a couple of things I told him a few weeks ago. Apparently it's uncommon to know that the "57" on the Heinz Ketchup was originally put on the bottle to brag that Heinz could grow 57 different types of pickles. Or that elephants can't jump. Or that the fourth dimension is called a tesseract. I just kind of pick up trivia.

So now he's asked me to tell him a new something or other every day. It's becoming quite difficult! Over the past couple of years, I've definitely gathered my fair share of weird facts, but I'm not equipped to tell him 365 tidbits a year!

So what weird facts do you know? Are you in a sharing kind of mood?

Thanksssss :)
