Once upon a time, you had to travel if you wanted to learn. The book with the tidbit of info you wanted might exist only in a library in Belarus. Nowadays the internet puts the world's knowledge just one click away -- so, of course, we're all binge-watching The Office for the sixth time.

That doesn't mean we've become uninterested in knowledge, though. Our minds crave more than just memes and quotes from TV comedies -- so we have prepared these facts to keep your brain diet varied with some light learning. These won't make you erudite, but at least you'll become a more interesting person to talk with.

And if you're left itching for more, you can just follow the links under each image.
