So, this is the most random post I have ever written.
J and I started watching Silicone Valley from season 1 recently, and there is a character named Jared who seems to know just about everything…. well…kind of.
You know, random, weird ass shit…facts that make you wonder…how/why the hell does that person know that.
I think we all have at least one random fact that we can regurgitate…sometimes we even surprise ourselves with what we know.
After laughing my ass off at the subtle comments made by Jared, I started to think. What do I know that someone else doesn’t know.
What interesting pieces of information do other people have that I can’t begin to understand.
What’s not on my radar but should be?
So, of course, I went too Google.
What do you know that you aren’t telling me? Anything fun? Maybe something that I should know but just don’t.
I thought it would be fun for your reading pleasure to go over some of these FACTS and see which ones you do know and which ones you don’t.
Keep track of how many you get right and how many you get wrong (there may be a prize involved, just saying). Also, keep track of the ones that have your jaw to the ground. I want to chat about those.
