What continent does NOT have a city named Rome on it?  Who was the first missing child on a milk carton?  What song and video started the video craze?  All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:

1. Your body contains about 0.2 milligrams of gold. That’s worth roughly one penny.(Gold Traders)

2. The last time a third-party candidate got any electoral votes was 1968. George Wallace ran on a platform promoting segregation, and won five states: Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. (270 to Win)

3. There’s a city called Rome on every continent besides Antarctica. There are a few in the United States. There’s also one in Ecuador, Australia, Indonesia, Lesotho, and of course Italy. (Did You Know)

4. “Bohemian Rhapsody” started the music video trend.  Queen made a promotional video for the song in 1975, and it was such a hit that record companies started making videos for all hit songs. (Wikipedia)

5. The first missing child on a milk carton was 12-year-old John Gosch from West Des Moines, Iowa. He went missing in 1982, he was on a milk carton in 1984 and sadly, he’s still missing. (Mashable)
