10 Facts You'll Find Fascinating

I have some interesting facts to share with you today. Some are funny, some weird, some arresting, and all are true!

If you're a writer, you might want to take note of the changes in our culture.

1. The fastest growing market for handguns in the U.S. is women.

I guess a lot of women feel unsafe. I hope they're doing it the smart way by taking gun safety classes and familiarizing themselves with the weapon they buy.

2. Along with that, the top 5 handguns women are buying are: Smith & Wesson MP Shielf, Glock 43 9mm, Sig Sauer P38 380, Glock 42 380, Walther PPS M2, and the Walther PPQ 9mm.

What do these handguns have in common? Concealed carry size, stopping power, and sized smaller for a woman's hand. (My new handgun is a Walther.)

3. California's state animal doesn't exist in that state.

4. The original capital of the United States was Philadelphia.

5. Abraham Lincoln is in the Wrestling Hall of Fame.

6. Bubble wrap was originally intended to be used as 3D wallpaper.

(Did you know Bubble Wrap comes in colors? My kids loved popping the bubbles so much that I gave them bubble wrap one Christmas. Wrapped it up like a present, and they loved it.)

7. Lake Superior is the world's largest freshwater lake by surface area. It holds 10 percent of the world's surface fresh water and is enough to cover both North and South America under one foot of water.

8. Paraskavedekatriaphobia is the fear of Friday the 13th.

9. Coca-Cola once bought all the website URLs that can be read as ahh, all the way up to 62 h’s. Most have since been deactivated.

10. Tears contain endorphins which reduce pain and improves your mood. Go ahead and cry. You'll feel better.

Takeaway Truth

Fact is stranger than fiction.
