The world is a genuinely strange place. Whenever we feel like we’ve begun to get a handle on things, along comes some strange or miraculous piece of information to throw us for a loop again.
Maybe that’s why we have an affinity for people who just seem to get it. Not a know it all mind you (no one likes Mister “Well-Actually…”) but somebody who’s able to make a massive and unknowable universe seem just a little bit more… understandable.
That’s why there’s nothing better than sharing a fact that blows the mind of everyone you’re with. You get to look like a wonderful genius… and anyone listening gets to take home a brand-new bit of information. Talk about a win-win.
But how can an aspiring trivia-head get ahead? Seems like a job for this video. Here you’ll find a handpicked list of only the best fun facts, carefully curated to give you a head-start in any conversation you find yourself in. Fear not the awkward silence! Just keep these trifles on hand and you’ll be blowing away friends, family, and romantic rivals like you invented Trivial Pursuit. Promise.
