Overview

If you're a fact aficionado...

...step right up and enter the world of useless information, pointless trivia, and off-the-wall facts. Some of the facts are funny. Some are surprising. And some are just plain weird. But all of them are true—and irresistibly fascinating!

You'll find information on virtually every subject under the sun, including:

  • Philosophy: On February 8, 2000, the meaning of life was auctioned on eBay. The winning bid was $3.26.
  • Popular Culture: Charlie Chaplin once lost a Charlie Chaplin look-alike contest.
  • Science: Dolly the sheep—the first cloned mammal—was named after country singer Dolly Parton.
  • Sex: The largest human cell is the female ovum. The smallest is the male sperm.
  • Sports: The average lifespan of an NHL hockey puck is 7 minutes.
  • Statistics: On average, women utter 7,000 words a day while men manage just over 2,000.

    Wonderful use of useless information!

    I have been putting fun facts on the board for many years in my classroom. I am always searching for new facts to add to my collection. I have several other books along this line. This book does not disappoint. It is an excellent source of trivia that I can continue to use. My students look forward to these facts daily. As I usually put three a day on the board, it is especially nice to have more published that I don't already know. Keep them coming! I will continue to purchase them. Random useless information will never get old. After a brief time, I can start over and recycle the first one, as my new students would not have seen them. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys fun facts.

    Love It!

    I gave this book to my husband for Christmas and he loves it! Some of the facts are unusual, but all are definitely interesting. My husband has become a real "Cliff Claven"!!
