Random Life Facts

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.

There is enough sperm in one single man to impregnate every woman on earth.

I have def thrown a lot of weird ass shit at you….not going to lie…I didn’t know a lot of these! Did you?

Sometimes it is fun to get out of your head and know that some things that happen are out of our control while other things, like In France, it is legal to marry a dead person…leave me saying “but, for why?”

I want to know about all the random stuff YOU know about. Its nice to have some *mic drop, I’m so smart* facts up my sleeve.

Also, if you kept track of how many you got right and how many you got wrong…there isn’t a prize.

i told a little white lie…sorry…

The more you know, right?

This is a very random post but I love it. I love random facts and information. My boyfriend follows a group on Twitter that shares really random facts and he’s always telling me them, you never know when they might come in handy!

Alison Rost February 22, 2018 - 12:34 am

It was so much fun reading all of these facts! Some of them I’ve heard of before and some I haven’t! I think it’s pretty refreshing to read something fun like this.

Really great and interesting post, I certainly did not know that Earth, was the only planet to not be named after a god. Plus since becoming a parent, I found out the hundreds of thousands of pople have a dairy intolerance.

Komal Patel February 22, 2018 - 7:15 pm

I think most of the world in general does

sweety February 22, 2018 - 2:09 pm

Through out this post, I was like – “that’s interesting”, “ohh”, “wait..what?!”, “omg”, “i knew it”, “i need to tell this to my mom” and so many other random musings. If anyone would have seen me reading this, they would have seen all emoji expressions on my face.

Komal Patel February 22, 2018 - 7:15 pm

Wow, so many cool facts! Some of them are super weird too. I will definitely try and remember as many as I can to impress family and friends from time to time!

sabrina barbante February 26, 2018 - 7:24 pm

I’m a professional at random facts! They make you look so acculturated 🙂 For instance I use them about wine, when I drink wine, even if I know little about wine (I mean very little about what is necessary to be considered a wine expert!)

Komal Patel February 26, 2018 - 8:51 pm

haha, i love this!

Lyka February 27, 2018 - 4:58 am

Well, these facts are totally…mindblowing. Really? They actually give those poor newborns to the wrong parents? 🙁 Good to know though. At least I can keep an eye on my future newborn haha!

Nina February 27, 2018 - 10:45 pm

I have way too many random facts. I took the strengths finder test years ago and I got input as my number 1. That means I literally just store random facts for whenever they could be useful. It’s weird and sometimes handy.

Komal Patel February 27, 2018 - 11:23 pm

That’s pretty Awesome actually!
