Random knowledge is sexy. Knowing information seems like a dull prospect but it's a pretty cool attribute. But certain information can come with a warning label. As we grow older and live each moment, obscure facts will find their way into our psyche. With experience comes knowledge, we just have to be prepared to explain how we acquired such insight. Alex Trebek may think its cool but some audiences may worry about our life choices.Redditor u/pygmypuffonacid wanted to know who else is full of crazy random info by asking.... What are some" why the f**k do you know that information " facts?

Squid can literally give themselves brain damage by eating something too big. Their brain is a donut shape and the esophagus runs through it.
Furry artists can make upwards to 35-50USD an hour doing paid commissions, that's why industry graphic designers usually ends up going down that rabbit hole.
I mean hey there's human artists who do Caricatures and the whole Uncanny valley stuff of Nightmarish Will Smith zombies.... people with eyes too big or being denounced and boycotted on twitter. If you draw a fluffy bunny, what's the worst that can go wrong?
That Rolling Rock beer ........
That Rolling Rock beer almost went bankrupt in the 1990's. As a last ditch effort they hired a new marketing exec to turn their fortunes around. In their big meeting with all the board members waiting in anticipation for his big reveal he told them to just raise the price. They were ready to fire him on the spot, because they couldn't sell any at the cheapo price. Then he told them why - their price point was less than Budweiser at the time and that was the standard by which people judged the quality of a beer. He reasoned that if they increased the price to the next tier above Bud and did nothing else, people would believe it was a better beer, even though it was the same as it ever was.
It turned into their ad campaign and they thumbed their noses at all the yuppies who drank it by the case in college in the 70's and 80's who started buying it again because it was now a "better" beer. It was wildly successful and saved the company.

In order to make a dagger out of the blood of your enemies, you'd have to kill 559 people in order to get the amount of iron you need.
Valery Khodemchuk was an engineer working the Night Shift at Chernobyl's Reactor 4 the night it exploded. He was the very first person killed in the accident, as he likely died instantly when his body was vaporized by the blast. His remains were never recovered, and the ruins now serve as his tomb.
Since it was a steam explosion rather than a nuclear explosion, it probably wasn't an especially quick or pleasant death, too.
The Grain Say so....
Crayfish (or lobster?) have a sort of open channel like an ear that helps them balance. A few grains of sand sit in it and because gravity is pulling the grains down they always know which way is up. However if you put magnetic metal shavings into the holes and hold a large strong magnet above them they'll start to swim upside down.
What about Frosted?
John Kellogg (inventor of corn flakes) was a huge advocate for circumcision because he believed it would prevent us from masturbating.
He also had a chair that delivered a high pressure enema to clean his bowels. He would use it many times a day, and several rich and famous people of the time also used it (henry ford, amelia earhart, jc penny).
First Position.....Dolly Wells Starz GIF by Blunt Talk Giphy
Some foot fetishes occur because the part of the brain that controls feeling in the feet is positioned right next to the part that produces libido, and sometimes the wires within the brain become crossed.
Waste...Sean Solomon Reaction GIF by Animation Domination High-Def Giphy
There's enough arsenic trioxide dust to kill 21 billion people or everyone 3x over hidden underground. All they did was trap it in concrete for someone else to fix it later.
Damn, just read up on this, it's basically worst than all the nuclear waste they're storing away to 'deal with later': https://www.aadnc-aandc.gc.ca/eng/1100100027413/1100100027417
Leave a human body soaking in a solution of lye and water for several months and it will dissolve into liquid and soft bone dust which can be washed down a drain, leaving no evidence behind. If you need to speed the process up you can heat the water up to just short of boiling and dissolve the body in ~6 hours.
PAL (Permissive Action Link) controllers for nuclear weapons work by removing small varied amounts of explosives from each detonator package, and adjusting detonation timers by nanosecond-scale intervals to compensate accordingly. Any nuclear weapon equipped with PAL cannot be detonated without knowledge of these timings, which are encrypted by constantly changing codes.

Beverly Hills California has the best soil for growing cucumbers.
Planck length is the smallest length at which space can be defined.
The entire observable universe is naturally the largest thing we can observe, and the largest thing we know of currently.
So silt is in the between those 2 in terms of size.
So, if you consider just how large space is, and how small a grain of silt would look to a human, that should give you an indication of just how small a planck length is, and the fact that one of the smallest observable objects on earth are in between the largest and smallest things we can currently define, it almost seems unbalanced.
Like you'd think that maybe our solar system would be in between the size of the observable universe and the smallest definable length, but nope. A grain of silt.
I'm Prettyhipster beard GIF Giphy
I'm a bearded man. I know a thing or 2 about makeup. This is because of a very realistic character creator in a game. And my aristocrat character kept looking like a skank. So I actually googled how to do makeup. People are usually very surprised that I know do much.
The force necessary to compress the arteries going into your brain is smaller than the force gravity exerts on your head, so you can technically hang yourself while lying down.
There is also something called Capillary Action. Water (and blood) is super "sticky" because the hydrogen bonds in water molecules can attach to other molecules. Using this natural adhesion, water can push itself up the stems of plants and trees.

Lego at one point in the early 2000s was the bestselling toy brand in the world, and also months from bankruptcy.
See, they had such spectacularly bad communication inside their company they had sets that cost them more to produce than they sold them for.
The Ways to Go
You don't need big fancy expensive chemicals or lethal weapons to kill people. simple things like injecting a small amount of distilled water into the blood stream or administering too much blood pressure medication can kill someone within 24 hours and there would be no signs pointing to murder when the time comes for an autopsy
edit!!! i meant distilled water not sterile water. very very sorry.
Retina Angles...googly eyes GIF Giphy
The human eye captures the images of everything you see but receives it literally turned upside down, it is your brain that accommodates it so that everything is in its place.
Worthless data, but it is interesting.
Cannibalism, while outlawed in a few states is not actually illegal in much of the US.
However, because of other laws and regulations, its nearly impossible to legally obtain human flesh.
It has been done though. You would probably be charged with desecrating a body, and possibly disturbing a crime scene. It would depend heavily on the circumstances. Basically, you'd have to have consent to eat it, or very extenuating circumstances.
Here's a link Today I Found Out
It explains it a lot better than I could.
Human meat looks like beef but taste more like pork. A human heart, if cut open while pumping blood, can squirt a distance of 30 feet. Not sure if these are weird enough since I just searched them up a while back.

As a child, I saw Sleeping Beauty and could not get over how messed up Maleficent was. She cursed a child because she wasn't invited to the birthday party?! Who does that?! Has she never heard of therapy?
She later turns into a dragon to try and kill a prince before he can reach the film's titular character and save the day. It's a downright creepy scene, actually. Short but thrilling.
And what about Cinderella? Who knew Disney movies could introduce us to the horrors of child abuse? The Evil Stepmother needs a therapist, too. (Did you know that both Maleficent and the Evil Stepmother were voiced by the same actress? It probably explains a lot.)
After Redditor shoopdahoop22 asked the online community, "What's the darkest Disney movie?" people shared their suggestions.
"I'm not even talking..."<p><em>Dumbo</em>.</p><p>I'm not even talking about the crows. The amount of abuse that elephant goes through is heartbreaking for a kids movie. Plus the pink elephant scene was pure nightmare fuel.</p><p><a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/kss7oa/what_is_in_your_opinion_the_most_fcked_up_movie/gihym32?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3" target="_blank">nowhereman136</a></p>
"He was ruthless..."<p>The villain of <em>Oliver and Company</em> was so dark. He was ruthless and realistic. He was on the phone telling his men to drown people. He also sicced his dogs on the main character with killing intent and only stopped when he offered a scheme to kidnap a little girl that seemed viable. Plus he straight-up died at the end.</p><p>Otherwise a great movie though.</p>
"Aoart from the old lady..."<p><em>Fox and the Hound</em>. Apart from the old lady abandoning a hand-reared fox in the woods and just expecting it to know how to survive, the end message of the movie is, Stick With Your Own Kind.</p><p><span></span><a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/kss7oa/what_is_in_your_opinion_the_most_fcked_up_movie/gii80zm?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3" target="_blank">purplhouse</a></p>
"I kind of wish..."<p><em>The Black Cauldron.</em></p><p> A ragtag group of two children, an old man, and some weird childish talking animal are trapped in a torture-maze-castle by a satanic demon king who plans to sacrifice them by throwing them into a possessed cauldron to summon the souls of the dead who will melt the flesh off of his living soldiers and then inhabit their skeletal remains and serve as his undead army.</p><p><em></em>I kind of wish that they had decided to go full speed ahead with this and really owned the twisted horror of the movie. As it is, they cut out a lot of the graphic scenes and the result is a poorly edited mess of a movie that hardly makes any sense whatsoever.</p><p><a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/kss7oa/what_is_in_your_opinion_the_most_fcked_up_movie/gii8w2m?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3" target="_blank">-M-E-O-W-</a></p>
"It was about a boy..."<p>Good answers here. I'll add <em>Child of Glass</em>. It was a made-for-TV movie for Wonderful World of Disney in the late 70s. It was about a boy who moves with his family to a (Louisiana?) plantation and is visited by the ghost of a little girl whose soul can't rest until he solves the mystery of her murder. Which also puts his own life in danger. Pretty heavy stuff, but also kind of sweet.</p><p><a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/kss7oa/what_is_in_your_opinion_the_most_fcked_up_movie/giic3kj?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3" target="_blank">misterdandy</a></p>

"It's tough to pick..."<p>Disney went through a weird period in the early 80s and tried some darker fare, resulting in releases like <em>The Watcher in the Woods</em>, <em>Dragonslayer</em>, <em>The Black Hole</em>, <em>The Black Cauldron</em>, <em>Something Wicked This Way Comes</em>, and <em>Return to Oz</em>. It's tough to pick the darkest of that weird (but lovable) bunch.</p><p><a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/4nnad4/what_is_the_darkest_disney_movie/d45cgvt?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3" target="_blank">VistaVizion</a></p>
"Thousands of people die..."<p>How is <em>Atlantis</em> not on this list? Thousands of people die, each character on the expedition is the literal example of a stereotype about a culture, and not a single person feels sad about the hundreds of crew members lost trying to find the city.</p><p><a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/4nnad4/what_is_the_darkest_disney_movie/d45lef5?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3" target="_blank">Dovahkin42</a></p>
"Judge Frollo..."<p><em>The Hunchback of Notre Dame</em>. Judge Frollo kills a mother and tries to murder her child. He also decides that he will burn down the entire city of Paris if he doesn't get the girl <em>and</em> that the girl should burn in hell for tempting him.</p><p><a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/4nnad4/what_is_the_darkest_disney_movie/d45b66e?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3" target="_blank">Fredfredbug4</a></p>
Time flies... before you know it, it's gone. Suppose there are things you really want to do: Getting into certain habits is a lot easier to do when you're younger. It's a lot easier to go to the gym and exercise on a regular basis, for example, when you're in 20s than when you're in your 30s, 40s, or 50s.
But there's nothing wrong with starting now––you'll notice the benefits eventually.

There are basic life lessons that are life-saving and cost-effective that we are all intimidated by but, in actuality, they take all of a few minutes to acquire. We all condition ourselves to believe that certain skills in life are just too complex for regular joes to master. The truth is... you do not need an Ivy League degree to learn how to clean out the water heater, clip your pet's nails, or change out a toilet. Who knew? So many of us have been forced to acquire new skills while we've been trapped at home and we're going to be better off for it.Redditor u/goodspeed19 wanted to know what lessons we should all be learning while stuck in quarantine that will make us more useful in the future by asking.....
