Did you know:
- You can’t hum while holding your nose closed.
- If you touch your tongue while yawning, it can stop the yawn.
- Those stars and colours you see when you rub your eyes are called phosphenes.
- Make a fist with your left hand, squeeze your left thumb, then put your right index finger down your throat. NO GAG REFLEX.
I consider myself a bit of a connoisseur of random, semi-useless fast facts. I blame it on my love of crossword puzzles…others would probably blame it on my deeply entrenched nerdiness. Either way, I am deadly in a game of trivial pursuit. Anywho, collecting little nuggets of information like the above tickle me.
Enter OMG Facts, a website full of truly random fast facts. So much goodness! The site’s tagline is “Your Mind. Blown.” Umm yes…my mind was blown…at who the wacky folks are who actually discovered some of these facts.
Go to the site at your own risk because if you are like me, you will spend a good chunk of time scrolling through these little gems of info. You’re welcome :-)
