What is odd about the worlds bench pressing record? What record does the soundtrack to “Guardians of the Galaxy” hold? What do they call Cool Ranch Doritos in Europe? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:

1. A stunt woman fell 30 feet during the hover board chase scene in “Back to the Future: Part Two”. She broke bones in her face, arm, and hand!  That take made the movie. (io9)

2. The “Guardians of the Galaxy” soundtrack was the first soundtrack ever to make it to number one on the Billboard chart that was entirely made up of songs that had been released before. (Wikipedia)

3. For the first five U.S. presidential elections, only white men who owned property could vote. (Wikipedia)

4. The world record for bench press was 363 pounds in 1916. It’s now TRIPLE that!  A guy named Ryan Kennelly bench pressed 1,075 pounds in 2008. (trongest Man)

5. In Europe, Cool Ranch Doritos are called Cool American Doritos. (Thrillist)
