Fun Fact of the Day

Unread postby Petre » 16th October, 2017, 9:36 pm

Okay, guys, I may be ugly, and useless, and boring, and annoying, and a bunch of other things, but I'm also fill with a bunch of useless knowledge. So, I figured I'd fill your heads with some of that useless knowledge with a new, pointless fact each day. Or, hopefully each day. I'll miss a day or two here and there—probably everywhere, honestly—but oh well.

If anyone else has some useless knowledge they'd like for people to know, just put it down below! Because it's fun (hence the name "fun fact")! Whether or not anyone ever looks at

Anyhow, I'll put the first fact here. They're probably not as entertaining as I think, but I like them.

16 October, 2017:
In 1939, Adolf Hitler's nephew wrote an article called "Why I Hate My Uncle."

Buffalo from Buffalo whom other buffalo from Buffalo bully [themselves] bully buffalo from Buffalo.
