Fun Fact Friday

I come across a lot of useful information every week and then there’s this stuff. 🙂

Some of it is interesting. Some of it is disturbing. Enjoy!

George Lucas originally wanted Tom Selleck to play Indiana Jones  but Selleck was already committed to “Magnum, P.I.” Hmmm .. I’m good with either one. Both are easy on the eyes. 🙂

QI: The answer is 54. What is the question? (We’re playing the Jeopardy version of QI) John: “You Don’t Say…” A third of us do THIS at work every day. What is it? According to a study, the amount of people doing THIS is down 20% from last year. What is it? QI: The average lifespan of THIS is 18 months. What is THIS? Nancy: In an office lottery pool? You might want to get that in writing!
