There are three types of people in this world. People who enjoy this list of interesting facts. People who think the list is too long and meandering. And people who don't get what all the fuss is about.In my case, I am a person who doesn't get why all these fascinating facts exist, so I have decided to write them down for you. The reason being that if you can read these facts then I don't need to tell you anything else. And if you don't enjoy reading these facts, I don't need to tell you anything else. And if you are a person who thinks these facts are too long and meandering, I don't need to tell you anything else. And if you are a person who doesn't get what all the fuss is about, then… I don't know.My enjoyment of the list comes from the fact that I am very, very, very good at spotting patterns, and when it comes to spotting patterns there is no better place to start than with lists of interesting facts.
