You can always count on Reddit to deliver entertaining if not always educational content. Thankfully, a recent thread by the user ExpiringFrog gave us a little bit of both. He took to AskReddit to ask for suggestions for interesting facts to tell his 4-year-old daughter before bed. How cute is that?
Sharing this knowledge had become a nighttime tradition between dad and daughter, but ExpiringFrog had long run out of cool tidbits to share with his little one. He asked for “mind-blowing but simple” facts that he could dispense, and it seems like he got more than he ever expected with more than 20,000 responses to date. Of course, most people didn’t offer any scientific studies that prove their interesting facts to be true, but that’s easily Google-able, I suppose.
Here are some of the best of the interesting facts this dad received—you might just have your own mind blown!
