A "fun fact" refers to a piece of information that might not be widely known.

Though, the "fun" in "fun fact" is often widely debatable.

Indeed, more often than not, people find or are told a "fun fact" about anything from an animal species to a famous celebrity which might make them want to cry or even throw up.


A recent Redditor was curious to hear fun facts people know which are, in fact, quite the opposite of "fun", leading them to ask:
"What is a NOT fun fact?"

When sharing a "fun fact" with a friend, it might be worthwhile to think about the information you're about to share.

And whether or not it is, in fact, "fun".

Instead, maybe share a tidbit, or "info"?

Even if neither roll of the tongue quite as easily...

In order to live a happy, healthy life, it's important to look to the future and leave your past behind you.

Even so, very few people don't find themselves laying awake in bed at night, or ferociously chopping vegetables in their kitchen feeling resentful, or holding a grudge from something in their past.

Losing a lead role in a school play, not making varsity, being excluded from a birthday party everyone else was invited to.

No matter how long ago it was, it's still hard to shake off the feeling of disappointment and anger you felt at the time.

For some, the bitterness is. like a pot of tea, and only grows stronger the longer it steeps.

Try as I might, I just can't get into the Kardashians. I think most of us are tired of them, actually.

But their fanbase is massive and they are pretty much the American version of the royal family. They wouldn't have attained that status without a legion of loyal fans who eat up everything they do, contributing to a massive collective social media following.

But fans of the Kardashians are just the most high-profile fanbase you might know about.

There are others you might not be so keenly aware of.

Life is moving so fast.

Everytime we get used to something it seems like it evolves and we have to learn more.

I miss CD's. Spotify confuses me.

AOL chat rooms were simple. What the H*LL is Discourse? Or Discontent?

I miss TV just being on channels in the box.

There are so many apps I have cold sweats.

And I can just tap my credit card and pay for things?

It's too much.

But all the things I learned will soon be gone.

Like the OG Toys 'R Us.

Time to say farewell...

What do we writers always say?

The truth is far stranger than fiction.

When we watch a movie there is constantly a scene where people are like... "THAT could never happen!"

Well it could and it has.

And there is more truths and facts throughout life just like fiction.

There is so much more to learn beyond science classes in school.

Wikipedia has educated us all.

Truth is truth.

So let's hear some facts that'll surprise us.

It's been so long.
