20 Unearthed Facts That Really Strengthened Our Core
As I assemble this list of interesting facts, I shall make some self-indulgent observations on how to write a list of interesting facts. I shall not be at all ashamed to admit that I have no formal training in any area. I have no degrees, and am only barely literate. But I have found that there are two key ingredients to making any list interesting. One is a good story. Any good list must have a narrative arc to it. I have a knack for telling stories, and a very specific sort of story, in fact. My kind of story is simple and brief. It's like a fairy tale or a children's fable. It has a mood, but no message. The other thing I enjoy this list of interesting facts is the element of surprise. The list is designed to be read while one is lying on a couch, perhaps drinking a glass of wine. A good surprise is a crucial component to this type of reading material. I have spent the better part of my adult life developing and honing this particular skill, so I won't bore you with the details.
