For some strange reason, the human mind is attracted to unusual facts. There are a lot of odd things in the world that have happened at one point or another. It's probably just the human fascination with the unusual. I enjoy this list of interesting facts and oddities because it gives us an excuse to be distracted. You'll find a lot of the facts are quite dull in and of themselves but it's the fact that there's an explanation to them that makes them interesting. It's like an old book; it's nice to know there's an explanation for something that has happened in the past. It's a relief. The purpose of this list is to entertain. I do hope that you enjoy this list of interesting facts. If you're interested in learning more about a certain odd fact then please leave a comment. I may end up answering whatever questions you may have.
