You enjoy this list of interesting facts? I hope you do, because I enjoy writing it, and I'll take all the encouragement I can get. I've been told I have the world's largest collection of facts (about 3.4 million). I like knowing that there are so many interesting things in the world. If I'm ever stuck on something and don't know what to do with myself, I can always turn to this list and try to think of some new facts. When I was younger I tried to collect as many facts as I could, but I found that when I tried to remember them I usually forgot most of them. So now I only try to collect facts about interesting things that I know won't be forgotten. I find it easier to remember things that are funny. There's one fact in particular that I know I'll never forget, even if I don't want to. But I can't tell you about it.
