Good morning you Self Isolationists! By now you know, I have no niche. Sure, I like writing about antiques, collectibles, history and really anything else I find fascinating, but I do realize I got to focus to appeal to my audience. Okay, just kidding. You read me for my ADHD, don’t you? Well today, I got a lot of work to catch up on. So today, you are going to just get some of my Useless Trivia & Fun Facts. If you are a fan of My YouTube Channel, you have already heard or seen a lot of these. Like my father and any other oversharing, life-long storyteller, I cannot remember what tales I’ve already told you, and which ones I haven’t. And no, it is not the early stages of dementia. I got a few months before that kicks in.
So here it is Friday? I think. They all have begun to blur, that is for sure. But, what is better than a good "click bait" post, featuring 13 Totally Random Useless Facts of Knowledge. And I must issue this disclaimer. I believe everything I am about to print is true, but it may not be...but I thinks so... so here they are:
#1 The average person will spend six months of their life waiting for red lights to turn green. Okay, it’s now like 5 months and three weeks. Thanks Covid !
#2 Peanuts are one of the ingredients in dynamite. Or should I say, peanut oil can be processed to produce glycerol, which can be used to make nitroglycerine, an explosive liquid used in dynamite. That’s Nutty!
#3 Almonds are members of the peach family. But remember, Osmond’s and members of the Partridge Family.
Lots of Nuts Stuff in here....
#4 A shark is the only fish that can blink with both eyes. The catfish is the most dangerous dating profile….there’s other fish in the sea.
#5 Maine is the only state whose name is just one syllable. West Virginia is an odd shape.
