Wow! Great! Puffling!
The Detroit one is the one that stumps people. For me the biggest number that I am well aware of is 86,000 of course that is the number of seconds there are each day.
Found myself saying, out loud, “really??”
Well, those really were fun facts! Who knew? Actually, I did know two of those – do I get a fun prize? 😉 The M&M one and the fact that Canada is south of Detroit. But goodness, I NEVER knew wombats had cube shaped poo!
No fun facts for you. But how did you come up with this bizarre and interesting list?
I love all this “useless information” , as my dad would have called it. Some great facts. I love those little pufflings. xo
Great fun facts. I have to admit I have never heard any of them. Thanks for sharing.
Things I never thought I needed to know but now that I do I’m happy!!! 🙂
