Random Thursday

We have just about 50 pages left in That's a Fact Jack: A Collection of Utterly Useless Information [Updated] by Harry Bright and Jakob Anser! I can't believe I've been using this book for a few years now! I can't even remember when I bought it! I had been running out of ideas for Random Thursday posts and wanted purely random nonsense facts that are rather interesting! So let's continue this randomness!

"Shakespeare coined thousands of new words, or 'neologisms', in his plays and sonnets. Among these are: amaze, bedroom, excellent, fitful, majestic, radiance, and summit."


Wow! Bedroom?! Really? That's trippy! LOL!

"After a ten-year study, FDA food inspectors found that two out of every three ground beef samples contained E. Coli. Chicken and turkey samples fared even worse."


I remember the great Taco Bell E. Coli fiasco. Or well, vaguely!

"Twenty-five percent of all the vegetables consumed in the United States are French fries."

  2. Eating and driving is such a safety concern, it's also super sad! When I lived in the burbs I ate the majority of my lunches/breakfasts in the car. ):

  4. I used to use the Shakespeare-origin words to impress my Year 8 English students in my introduction to Shakespeare. It was fun to hear their gasps of amazement! :)
