Stupendous facts are not just for people who enjoy this list of interesting facts. I am writing these for the reader who has no interest in facts, but is a human being. You can think of me as a human being like you. I have nothing better to do with my life than write about facts. This is because I don't know what to do with my life. I want to live. I am not so sure I want to live any longer, however, so I've taken a vow of silence for the next 100 years. But, I am still human. So I am writing about things that make me feel good. This is an absurdist piece of prose written by an absurdist person. Absurdist literature is the literature of a human being. Most human beings are curious about facts, especially interesting ones. You are probably one of them. I don't know who you are, but I know you are here, reading this. Thank you.
