Who was really responsible for the first flight?  Who mad the expression “My Bad” popular and why?  Where was the first loaf of sliced bread sold?  All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. Jackie Chan did the voice of the Beast in the Chinese version of “Beauty and the Beast” in 1991. He also sang his songs. (Screencrush)

2. The expression “My bad” became popular because of the former NBA star Manute Bol. He didn’t quite have a full grasp of English, so instead of saying “My fault” when something went wrong, he’d say “My bad.” (Visual Thesaurus)

3. Sliced bread was sold for the first time 89 years ago, in Chillicothe, Missouri. (Mental Floss)

4. The Wright Brothers didn’t really pioneer flying together. Wilbur did basically all the work but gave Orville half the credit so his feelings wouldn’t be hurt. (Biographile)

5. ‘N SYNC didn’t just get its name because the guys were “in sync.” It uses the last letter of each of the five original members’ first names: JustiN, ChriS, JoeY, JasoN, and JC. But Jason was replaced by Lance Bass, which screwed it all up. (Wikipedia)
