1. Did you know that when you snap your fingers, the sound is created from your middle finger hitting your palm, not your middle finger rubbing your thumb? Also, Whoopi Goldberg doesn't have eyebrows. Oh, and "umop apisdn" is "upside down" spelled upside down.

2. You can't breathe and swallow at the same time btw. Your tongue never really rests in your mouth either, sorry. And you can't actually hum while holding your nose, just FYI.

3. Sorry to bombard you with information, but Elvis Presley was a natural blonde, Betty White is older than sliced bread, and Will Smith's full name is actually Willard, not William.


6. I don't mean to alarm you, but there are more McDonald's restaurants in the US than hospitals. Oh and if you feel like it, you can get married at a McDonald's in Hong Kong. It'll only cost you $1,200, balloon rings included.

7. Did you know that Barbie's full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts and she's a Pisces? Her man, Ken, is also a Pisces. He's two years and two days younger than Barbie, and his full name is Ken Carson. The more you know...

8. In a kind of clever idea, Walt Disney made sure gum was never sold at the park because he didn't want it to be stuck everywhere. Oh, and Disneyland serves 2.8 million churros a year. That's a lot of churros.


9. I bet you didn't know that Whitney Houston was one of the producers of The Princess Diaries. And that Leonardo DiCaprio was going to be in Moulin Rouge! but Baz Luhrmann went against the idea after hearing him sing (lol).

11. You can't have penis facts without vagina facts, so did you know that weed lube is a thing? Yep, it can get your vagina stoned (kinda). And your vagina expands during sex, in case you didn't know.

12. I don't want to scare you, but Scream was inspired by actual events. And this probably won't make you feel better, but the puppet from Saw is probably more important than you: Filmmakers James Wan and Leigh Whannell paid for it to have its own seat on a flight from Melbourne to Los Angeles.


13. Did you know that Martin Luther King Jr., Barbara Walters, and Anne Frank were all born in the same year? And just to fuck your head up a little more, right now we're closer to the year 2033 than we are to the year 2000.

14. For all the Potterheads out there, Harry Potter is the same age as Kim Kardashian, which isn't weird at all. Oh, and the Triwizard Tournament was happening at the same time that the O.J. Simpson trial was going down.

15. Everybody knows Morpheus as Laurence Fishburne, but Russell Crowe, Samuel L. Jackson, and Sean Connery all turned down the role in The Matrix. And talking of woulda should coulda, Lauryn Hill auditioned to play Dionne in Clueless.

16. After the release of Finding Nemo, so many people bought clownfish that they nearly went extinct in some areas. And if you're wondering where Andy's dad is in Toy Story, Pixar were just being tight on the pursestrings because human characters are expensive to animate.


17. Makeup addicts, did you know Max Factor was an actual person? Yep, Maksymilian Faktorowicz founded the company in 1909. And in case you were wondering, the first swivel-up lipstick in a tube came in 1923.

18. It's time to boggle your brain a little: A second is called a second because it is the second division of the hour by 60, the first division being a minute. For something less confusing, how about the fact that horses can't vomit? Or that the killer whale is a natural predator of the moose?

19. And finally, a little on Disney. Did you know that the sorcerer in Fantasia is named Yen Sid, which is "Disney" backwards? And in case you were wondering, Aladdin was modelled after Tom Cruise. The resemblance is uncanny...
