13 Now-You-Know Wild Facts

Listen. The fact is, some of our brains just have TOO much free space in them. You may not know about it, but it's true. You know the feeling, just an airy, loose brain NOT stuffed to the gills with facts.

What's the use of that? You've been given a whole mess of gray matter between your ears for a reason dear reader. The question is, why NOT fill it with veritable giga bytes of trivia, useless information and random factoids? What else are you going to do? Acquire a marketable skill? Come on!
