As children enjoy this list of interesting facts, so do I. I used to make a point of learning many new things every day, and I'm not sure why that has stopped. As a matter of fact, I have learned so many interesting things in my lifetime that the whole subject is simply too vast to mention them all. Instead, I will confine myself to mentioning only those facts I find most fascinating, most wonderful, most amusing or most interesting. The other facts can be found by doing an internet search with the words “interesting facts” followed by the name of some topic you are interested in. You will be amazed at how many interesting facts there are about everything. I'm sure you will find one or two interesting facts that have been omitted here, but they are just that - interesting facts. The title of this piece is a joke. It is meant to entertain our brains. It is not meant to educate our brains, which would take too much effort.
