I enjoy this list of interesting facts because it makes me feel smarter than I actually am. This is because there are many things in the universe which I do not know, and therefore cannot be expected to have an opinion on. However, because I have never heard of them before, they seem new, exciting, and important to me. The list also has a good sense of humor, which makes it fun to read and puts me at ease, for some reason. It's also very long, which means there is more of it to read, and more of it to forget. This means that I have to reread the list from the top, which is both inconvenient and mildly amusing. The list is also made up almost entirely of interesting facts that are not particularly well known. Because the list is so long, it's hard to find facts that have a large audience of people who enjoy this list of interesting facts.
