What's Your All-Time Favorite Amazing Fact?

Image credit: 

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. Besides the thing about John Tyler's grandsons still being alive, my favorite fact is that the 3 Musketeers was originally three smaller bars (vanilla, strawberry, chocolate). A couple years ago we tried to start a movement to bring it back, but that didn't go anywhere. And now I'm hungry. While I go rummage around for a candy bar, you tell us about your all-time favorite fact.

2. If you had to add a non-traditional pet to your life — no cats, dogs, fish, birds, rabbits, hamsters, or anything you've ever owned before — what would you choose, and what would you name it?

3. What is the one niche subject you believe you know more about than anyone else reading this post?

Bonus! If you live in Birmingham, Ala., or Northern New Jersey and "website user testing" sounds like a blast, we want to speak to you! Just leave a note in your comment that you might be interested or email me and we may be in touch.

[Have a great weekend! See all the previous Friday Happy Hour transcripts.]
