How often are new facts posted.
Fact cards are posted every other day. We try to post new articles, almost every day.
Would you mind if I started to post these facts on iFunny? I really think people would love them and I would of course credit and link your website.
Anyone is free to share these fact cards wherever they want to. Just make sure you don’t alter the images in any way.
How to get old facts?
One of your facts was featured on iFunny!
Your page (re)numbering makes it almost impossible to find something on your site. The search option doesn’t seem very helpful.. I tried to search for Harris Rosen or Fact #62 after seeing it on Bored Panda, but had to do a brute force search to find this page…
Thank you for your input. We will see if we can modify our page numbering system and search parameters.
Hi, just found your site and subbed. I really like it, but agree with Sarah Mould. Need to refine the search perimeters. Thank’s
I just went through all the facts pages. A few things I’ve noticed:
1. #451-#470 (pgs 46 & 47) have images that are broken.
2. #841-#1140 (pgs 85-114) are complete duplicates of earlier pages.
Thank you for your valuable feedback. Last night we implemented a new page numbering system for our fact cards. I really messed up with facts #451-#470 which I have fixed now. I have fixed the other problem too.
Just stumbled onto your site via an Imgur post. Cool stuff.
Re. one of the citations above: “The oldest D20 dice was uncovered in Egypt…”
One “die,” many “dice.” The headline in the source given had it right; “Ancient d20 die emerges from the ashes of time.”
Credibility is always enhanced by proper grammar.
Please give measurement in cubic meters for fact 1038 k thx bye.
That would be 9.29×10^67 per square foot (per feet squared).
Are you affiliated with wtffunfact?
Nope. We aren’t affiliated with any other fact site.
I really enjoy your site. I visit it regularly at this period of my life to use up time, while entertaining myself, and increase my awareness of life through the amazing insights into stories behind what we often overlook. It is almost therapeutic I would think! For one thing, I feel grateful not to be one of the warped personalities you often report on, but on the other hand, I feel sorry for the suffering that is really behind so many people you note through our shared history, who have the apparency of many successes, but are in fact imperfect and suffering souls like all of us, on the road to something better we hope eh?
History gives us an opportunity to look into the mistake our ancestors made, but also the feats they achieved. The lives they suffered, so that the future generations could have the freedom. I am happy to have been part of such an important part of your life, Stuart.
Is there any reason for the majority of the fact card pages starting with a seductively posed young lady?
The majority of the fact card pages starts with seductively poised young ladies is the same reason that frosting is put on top of the cake, not the bottom.
I’m sure it’s like asking a magician how his tricks are done, but I would love to know the workings of the research you have to go through to find/verify everything I’ve read on your site. To say they are entertaining would be an insult. I read several pages daily. I have found them to be fascinating, educational, informative, and downright important.
When I was a child and went on long road trips with my parents, my Mom would would bring a box of Trivial Pursuit cards to read and ask questions to pass the time for everyone in the car…My Wife now reads these to our kids on our vacations.
Do you take fact submissions, or do you rely on your own people to research and present them to your team/site? The only thing I can say about your site, is some click ads could be modified or even done away with. Political opinion polls, etc…I would sooner see and ad for shaving cream that some of those useless and probably biased ads (not you, just the people conducting them) But, I love what you do and am so glad that your site exists!
Thank you Ryan. It’s the readers like you who keep us going. It gives us immense pleasure to know that you love reading facts on our site. We do take submissions. About 10% of our facts come from submissions. You too can submit facts by filling out this form Contact Us. The ads are what keeps the servers running. We don’t take any donations, use patreon or sell merch on our site so ads are how we generate income. Though, we will take your advice to tone down the ads (we can’t really see what kind of ad our readers see as it’s decided by Google).
Completely agree with Stuart L. Love this site. Attaing knowledge in my spare time.
How come we cant search by category, e.g. ‘military’, ‘health’, ‘politics’ etc…
Seems like there should be the ability to comment on facts, i.e. when you click on the fact to go to its page.
1454: She wasn’t found “shortly” after, which might imply that 911 had tried to help and just didn’t arrive in time; she was found HOURS after.
1395: They’re six and don’t read?
Each of these pages of facts should have its own page for commenting instead of many fact pages and only one place to comment. I’d also delete my post about each fact having its own page since the aforementioned idea is better, but I can’t.
821: Not the correct issue; the 1988 Cosmo in question featured Cindy Crawford. The one pictured is from 2015.
611: April Ludgate…this tells me nothing. A little more info would be good.
610: So killing bears is a good thing?
I love this website I use it all the time and it allows me to attain info that I have been able to use irl all the time. Keep up the great work!
Also Rickinator for 610 killing bears is not a good thing due to most species of bears being endangered it is just a fact/statistic
