I am a wealth of useless knowledge and facts. Or, so I think so. Not sure if anyone else agrees with this statement.
So, I recently purchased a book. Yes, an actual book at a bookstore. I know many of you do not believe this if you know my obsession with having everything electronic. Anyways, the book is titled, “The Totally Awesome Book of Useless Information.” (ISBN: 978-0-399-15925-1) I thought that I would share some of the facts from this book that I didn’t know and find interesting.
- “The most money that can be lost in one turn in Monopoly is $5,070.”
If you didn’t know it, Monopoly is my favorite game of all time. I will play it anytime, anywhere, and with anybody. I do not know why I like it, I just do.
- “One in every four Americans has appeared on television.”
I have been on the news several times with from working for the news station or from working with an organization being reported-on by the news. The general public goes crazy over people that are on television, even the local news reporters. I never understood this and still do not. People on television are just doing their job, nothing more.
- “A can of diet coke will float in water, while a can of regular Coke sinks.”
This is an interesting physics experiment. I wonder why this happens.
I hope you enjoyed these as much as I did. I will share more as I read more of the book. Share some of your interesting thoughts and anecdotes with me.
