Interesting, but Useless, Information

Useless information you say? Find out things you never knew you needed to know right here!





Ahhh, the Internet. Capabilities big and small. Information in your hands, in an instant. Shop in Italy from your Boston home. Trade cryptocurrency in a click. Earn a college degree. Or, read this blog for some of the most interesting useless facts you’ll never need to know.

Sorry, I cant offer insight into the latest news or offer an amazing health cure. But, what I can do is provide you with three entertaining minutes. And, well, when the day is done, we all need fun-filled, entertaining moments.


Some might say the facts on this list will never benefit you in real life, but I say hush thy naysayers! Honestly, is there ever a wrong time to toss out a fact like Monopoly prints more money for their board game each day than the U.S. Treasury?


Feel like the Einstein of every conversation with the following useless facts.


What?


Maybe your husband really isn’t listening to you. For generations, countless wives have joined together to complain about this very problem. Health.com reports that men cannot hear as well as women, although they can read smaller print than ladies. (Sorry to all the ladies with husbands who will now quote this in every argument they have again.)


A Barbie World


In 2021, the average woman has a 38.5” waste. If Barbie were real, she would have a 39” waste. Barbie would measure 39-23-33 if she was a real person.


It Keeps on Growing


Maybe Pinocchio wasn’t lying. Our ears and nose are two body parts that never stop growing.


I’m Lovin’ It


From Big Macs to McMuffins, Americans love McDonald's. On average, 7% of America stops by the fast-food joint each day.


To Mustache…Or Not to Mustache?


The King of Hearts is the only king in a deck of cards without a mustache.


Back in a Jiffy


Back from checking out that card deck? Great. Did you look in a jiffy? We often say we’ll “be back in a jiffy” or that we’ll “do it in a jiffy,” but in reality, that’s only one-trillionth of a second, so we take a little longer.


We’re All a Little Lost


The average person spends 2.5 days of their entire life looking for lost items. Note, I feel personally attacked by this fact.


If I Ran The Zoo


Gerald McGrew wanted to run the zoo in the 1950 classic storybook by none other than Dr. Seuss. McGrew would bring a creature named Nerd from the land of Ka-Troo to his zoo. And so, the word ‘nerd’ was born.


Gnurr


That lint in the bottom of your pocket? No one knows where it comes from, yet it has a cool name. Say it with me “gnurr.” Defined by dictionary.com as a “substance that collects over time in the bottoms of pockets or cuffs of trousers,” gnurr is something we’ll all see some time or another.
