People Shared Their Most Random Bits Of Trivia So Read This And Feel Really Really Smart Today

I’ve always been a sucker for trivia. For whatever reason my brain is a sponge for useless knowledge, knowledge that I only ever get to bust out during the most random of times. That’s the nature of random trivia facts though, they’re not pearls of wisdom to be applied to every day life. I can tell you that Mahi Mahi is considered to be the fastest growing fish in the ocean and the urban legend of Daddy Long Legs spiders being highly venomous but having fangs too small to bite humans is bullshit. I can tell you that facetious is the only word in the English language where the vowels ‘a,e,i,o,u’ all appear in order….But for some reason I can never remember my own parent’s birthdays.

Anyways, a bunch of people over on AskReddit shared their favorite pieces of trivia and I thought you bros would dig this since it’s a completely random slice of facts, ones that have no connection to each other side from being random as shit.

From Wikipedia:
