We enjoy this list of interesting facts because they are interesting, but they're also fun to think about in a completely absurd way, and we do so in an absurdist manner. That is to say, we do so by inventing fictional stories which might have happened as a result of each fact. The stories are entirely fictitious, but the facts are true, and we think it's fun to consider these facts in light of these hypothetical stories. But even though the facts themselves are true, none of the stories is either plausible or probable. The only reason we consider any of them plausible or probable is that we can't conceive of a world in which any of the events described in the stories ever occurred. If you think you can, please write a note and tell us how you managed to do it. If you don't enjoy this list of interesting facts, we understand completely, and we sincerely wish you luck in finding something more enjoyable to read.
