Reid Kerr-Keller

Some matches are made in heaven.

For your consideration: Fun & Facts. Is there a combination that works better? They fit together like Netflix and a whole tub of ice cream. Or maybe just PB&J.

There’s almost nothing more satisfying than a new bit of trivia. Did you know the bones in a whale’s fin are almost identical to human fingers?? That’s the kind of fabulous factoid you just can’t keep to yourself. And really, what’s more satisfying than showing off your new-found facts with the people in your life? You look smart and well-read, the listener gets a brand-new piece of knowledge, which they can pass along in turn. And later, when someone repeats that same fact back to you? Well then you know your tidbit has made it all around the world. That’s the kind of viral information we can get behind.

But how does an aspiring trivia-head get started? 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.
