All knowledge is power. Every detail we acquire can one day be a wonder. So we must never turn down even the most minute idea to commit to memory. With all the game shows about superfluous knowledge... who knows what can net you some heavy coin. And knowing all sorts of things can be great conversation with tons of laughs.

Redditor u/GrZneK wanted to know what useless knowledge we've all acquired that can be good for fodder by asking.... What are some facts that are useless but still fun to know?

Hard Milk.

Cows produce more milk when listening to classical music than heavy metal. beef_wallet

"to the city."

The city of Istanbul was originally called Constantinople after the Roman emperor.

As it was a mouth full to say people would say "Stimbouli" which meant "to the city."

Eventually the word developed over time into Istanbul. trv22

July 4, 1826....

On July 4, 1826, at the age of 90, Adams lay on his deathbed while the country celebrated Independence Day. His last words were, "Thomas Jefferson still survives." He was mistaken: Jefferson had died five hours earlier at Monticello at the age of 83. Catlenfell

The Hunt.

It is illegal to hunt camels in the state of Arizona. SushiLegend

I don't know about other areas, but hunting laws around here work based a whitelist. Not a blacklist.

You may only hunt what has been allowed. Everything else is illegal. MildlyJaded

Jelly Belly.. 

There's a jellyfish the size of a fingernail that can kill a human pretty easily. It was discovered by Australian aborigines tribe, the Irukandji tribe, because people would go swimming in the ocean and just die. A doctor suspected it was a jellyfish and finally tracked it down, but he hospitalized himself, the lifeguard and his son whilst trying to prove it. sir_automobili

Mind. Blown.

Yoda and Miss Piggy were both voiced by the same person. brokendowndryer

Gamma Ray.....

If the Earth is ever hit by a super powerful Gamma Ray burst it would arrive at nearly the speed of light so we'd never see it coming. It would also instantly kill all life on the planet.

So, when you're having a really bad day, there's always something to look forward to. Azozel

To Asia.... 

Christianity began where modern day Israel is. Israel is on the continent of Asia.

Therefore, technically Christianity is an Asian religion. RunDNA

Asia is kinda interesting anyway. I feel like Arabs have as much in common with Koreans as we do, yet they are both Asians whereas Europeans aren't. Eggplantosaur

So many ideas....

  1. No number from 1 to 999 includes the letter "a" in its word form.
  2. "Dreamt" is the only word in the English language that ends with "mt."
  3. The average adult spends more time on the toilet than they do exercising.
  4. Apple seeds contain cyanide.
  5. If you plug your nose, you can't tell the difference between an apple, a potato, and an onion. VrindaDagar

Everyone has their travel bucket list.

The list of places they absolutely must visit before they die.

There are those, however, who also have a rather different list of destinations.

The places that have no intention to visit.

Be it for safety concerns, language barriers, or simply that there's nothing at these places that calls to them, there are places some wouldn’t dream of spending the time and money to visit.

Redditor TrooperJohn was curious to hear which places were at the very bottom of the list of travel destinations for his fellow Redditors, leading them to ask:

"What is a popular tourist destination you have no interest in visiting?"
