Business lunches, holiday parties, first dates, second dates, all dates! There can be so much pressure to break the ice and have something, anything interesting to say during such social events. You never want to be the quiet person at the party. That person doesn't get invited again. That person is always suspected of being a murderer. You don't want to be seen as a murderer do you? Neither do we!

So to help enforce your “non-murderer” persona, we at Cracked collected a bunch of intriguing bits of information and fun facts so you can share them freely and without the fear of being a suspect in a murder that you absolutely had nothing to do with. Just the mere mention of how the movie E.T. was banned in Scandinavia can get you some social credit.

So here are some juicy, riveting facts to share with others (again, please don't murder us or anybody).
