Here's A Thought Snack

Hey! Recently, I have been on a "random fact" kick. I look at random fact pictures on the internet.......annoy my family and friends with random tidbits of knowledge.......and, recently, read random fact books. Here's the book I am currently in the middle of:
It's technically my brother's, but he's usually watching pointless YouTube videos. So he doesn't mind me reading it.
Anyways, what I wanted to do here was give you some RAAAAAAAAAAANDOM KNOWLEDGE! How I selected these facts was simple-I flipped to a random page, and swirled my finger in circles. Then, with my eyes closed, I put my finger down on the page-and the fact I landed on got put here.
Here we go!
