What do Canadians call colored pencils? What is the mascot for the Colorado Rockies and why? What phobia does Billy Bob Thornton have? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:

1. The Colorado Rockies’ mascot is a triceratops because a dinosaur rib bone was discovered when their ballpark was being built in 1994. (Denver Post)

2. The majority of Canada doesn’t say “colored pencils”.  They call them “pencil crayons.” (The 10 and 3)

3. There’s only one actor besides Harrison Ford who was in all three of the original “Indiana Jones” movies. A guy named Pat Roach was killed by the airplane propeller in “Raiders”, a bad guy in “Temple of Doom”, and a Nazi in “Last Crusade”. (BroBible)

4. The longest streak of sold out games in sports is for a minor league baseball team in Ohio called the Dayton Dragons. They’ve sold out every game for the past 18 years, which is a total of more than 1,200 in a row. (Bleacher Report)

5. Billy Bob Thornton has a phobia of antiques and refuses to stay in a room that has furniture from earlier than 1950. (Mental Floss)
