The following facts have been culled from a wide variety of sources, both historical and contemporary. While there is a common theme to many of them, it should be noted that each fact in its entirety is a separate entity and not meant to be taken out of context. Each fact is a piece of evidence in support of a grander truth that I have no desire to reveal here. However, the reader is welcome to enjoy this list of interesting facts for its own sake, if they so choose. The purpose of this list is not to explain how the world works. It is a celebration of how wonderfully strange our universe is, and why it is such a magnificent place to enjoy this list of interesting facts in. Also, please keep in mind that many of these facts were discovered by others long before I came along. If you do not already know something, and you are interested in finding out more, I suggest you do some research on your own. Then come back to me and say, “I did not know that.” I'm always happy to learn new things.
