20 Compelling Facts For Every Trivia Overachiever
You know, when people enjoy this list of odd facts, they usually say things like “Oh! That's so weird! I had no idea!” and “Wow! I never knew that!” and stuff like that. I can't help but feel that if we as a species were as intelligent and informed as we think we are, that these odd facts would be more widely known. The first time I heard about an interesting fact on television was when a woman on The Learning Channel was discussing how many people have died from shark attacks in Australia. (She said the number was two-thousand-six-hundred-and-thirty-two, which is obviously false.) I thought, “Wow! What a fascinating number! But it's also kind of scary.”
And then she said that sharks only attack humans once every six years on average. That's not too surprising, but it was still interesting to learn. The most amazing thing about the list is that it's never going to end. There are just so many fascinating odd facts.
