Fun Fact Friday


I’m bored. Are you bored? At work still? Home? Anyway… I’m bored so I figured I’d write. I was meandering around the web and stopped at the space bar for a drink looking over all these fun facts I came across… I figured I’d share. Some made me laugh, some made me go eiw and some were like eye openers.
