I enjoy this list of interesting facts very much and think you will, too. There are hundreds of thousands of facts of which I am aware. Of these, I have selected the most fascinating and most entertaining ones, which, I think, will surprise, intrigue, amuse, or astound you. The first one is: When you are told that it is raining outside, but it is a bright sunny day, your brain tells you that the information coming in is wrong. That it must be raining because there is a wet patch on the carpet in front of the door. You do not see the dry patch of sunshine on the ceiling above your head, because the sun is out. This is how your brain works. If your brain tells you that you are not at home, then you are not at home. If you are not at home and you hate this list of interesting facts, then you are not at home. If you are at home, you are at home. Uhh … wait, sorry, that's something from the wrong universe. Anyway, here's the real list:
