50 Fun Friday Facts

Facts and a magnifying glass

Hello. It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday. Fun, fun, fun, fun, looking forward to the apocalypse. That’s a verbatim quote from the Rebecca Black classic Friday.

Anyway, crap “music” aside, we’re taking a good hard, long, focused look at facts today. Why? They’re important. Without facts, you are factless. That is bad.

So, bone up on these precious 50 facts to slake the desires of fact people (i.e. historians, chainsaws, mathematicians, chemical waste etc.)

      • I like it! It is my least favorite The Legend of Zelda game released for a home console ever since the franchise made the transition to 3-D, but it is still a great one. I even like the controls. My main complaint regarding it concerns the awfully dull sky segments.

    • It was disappointing, for sure, but all this 1/5, the writers should be fired from a cannon into a sun etc. Fundamentally, it was good television. In the online era, fans seem to pick up on negative elements and then everyone gets whipped up into a frenzy. I sat there enjoying the episodes, then went online to enjoy/endure the backlash.

  1. Obviously… you have not 50!
    You have 49.
    May I suggest:
    49 is not 50, unless you are a moron.
    OR.. are you attempting to provoke?
    How can I even begin to begin to think about enjoying my weekend with a 50 list of only 49?
    You knew I would say something!
    Where’s Holly?
