Everybody has their secrets. And often times those secrets are hot and fascinating. We should tell more about ourselves at board meetings and parties. Everybody is interesting and we all have a story that would shock every person in every room. Let's all have some fun with out histories. For instance.... I failed my driver's test nine times and ran the car into a ravine; yet still got my license. Intrigued? Call me.

Redditor u/dr_peabrain123 wanted to know a few quirks and secrets some of us have been hiding that pertain to a slightly personal nature by asking.... What's a fun fact about yourself that you don't tell anyone, simply cuz no one asked?

Oh Jerry....

I was on an episode of Jerry Springer back in the day. I saw my episode on TV a few years later and it might be the most cringe worthy thing I've ever done/seen. The trip was a blast though.

Also, I have 4 nipples. Those 2 things are unrelated though.

being 7....

When I was 7 I stepped on a pop can while barefoot and cut my big toe off.

The woman I had my first serious relationship with is now in jail for murder.

Archive of Our Own...

I used to have a really popular fan fiction account on Archive of Our Own, my top post got something like 30,000 views. I just went back and read them, and I am confused as to how they were so successful. I wrote about musical theatre, Glee, rock bands, and some of my favorite books. I sadly no longer have any links, the other day I found copies of my works in google documents which have since been deleted. I really appreciate your interest, though!

I just have to see Fran's outfit to tell you which The Nanny episode it is and to give you a short recap of it.

I can do something similar with Criminal Minds and Reid's haircut. I can tell the exact season, usually the episode just by a screenshot of only that character. It's such a weird skill that I never asked for.

Maury?

I was not the father on a popular trash tv show, I didn't jump for joy or try to hog the camera. I came in knowing that it was extremely unlikely that the child was mine took the test for peace of mind and went home. I don't tell people because in hindsight it was extremely embarrassing for me. I had to share a stage with a lot more guys than I was expecting, some of which were total scumbags. The company she kept made me ask myself a lot of questions.

Second Nature....

I hardly ever bend over to pick up things when I'm at home. I almost exclusively use my toes and pick things up with my feet. Im really really good at it too. I'm so proud because my kids all have the same prowess as their old man, it's like second nature now.

kaboom! 

I made homemade explosives my first year in college with simple household ingredients. I stopped the night I was nearly caught, like I had suddenly realized that what I was doing was not a simple prank.

I think about that every now and again when someone says that people are not fully formed adults until later in their twenties.

I don't know about him, but my dumb butt made an explosive when I was younger. Didn't really know what I was doing just wondered what would happen if I took a bunch of sparklers, wrapped them in tape, and then light them. Crap is dangerous as hell and they sell that crap to super cheap for little kids to play with.

I'm not looking....

I can identify major credit card brands by their first digit, thanks to a seasonal job I had 11 years ago. 4 is Visa, 5 is Mastercard, 6 is Discover. AmEx starts with 3, which will always be followed by either 4 or 7. AmEx cards also have fewer digits but longer security codes.

I also just set my keys down and don't know where they are. So I guess a fun fact about myself is that my short term and working memory are absolute trash, but I have a pretty great long term memory.

Smartypants....

I worked really hard studying for the SATs back in the day, and I raised my score from 1100 to 1540 out of 1600. I'm proud of that, but I can't exactly go around bragging.

People Imagine The First Thing They'd Do If They Get To Heaven

There is no bigger mystery than what happens to us after we die.

But even those who don't practice an organized religion tend to believe that there is a Heaven, a happy joyful place where our souls will remain for eternity.

No two people share the same idea of what heaven would be like, but everyone who believes in it probably has an idea of the first thing they'd do after entering the pearly gates.

Redditor WeDidItGuyz was curious to hear what would be top on everyone's list upon entering the afterlife, leading them to ask:

"If heaven exists, what’s the first thing you’d do?"

"Fun facts" generally refers to a tidbit of information about a specific topic which the general public might not have otherwise known about.

But the first word in that term can be misleading.

Indeed, some "fun facts" reveal information that isn't remotely "fun" in the slightes.

Redditor Alternative_kachocho was curious to hear some "fun facts" which were anything but fun, leading them to ask:

What's a 'fun fact' that isn’t fun at all?"
