What was Marilyn Monroe’s IQ? What was the original definition of the word, “Weird”? What kind of death benefits does Google offer for it’s employees survivors? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. Parts of “The Lion King” and “Pocahontas” were animated in North Korea. (RFA)

2. Google offers some of the best employee benefits and even death benefits. If a Google employee dies, the deceased’s spouse or partner receives half of the deceased employee’s salary for 10 years.  Children of the deceased employee also receive $1,000 per month until age 19, or 23 if the children are full-time students. (Investopedia)

3. The original definition of “weird” was “having the power to control the fate or destiny of human beings.” (Time)

4. Marilyn Monroe had an IQ of 163.  Albert Einstein’s IQ was 160. (Express)

5. Harry S. Truman, Michael J. Fox, and Ulysses S. Grant all have middle initials that don’t stand for anything. In Michael J. Fox’s case, his real middle name was Andrew.  He went with “J” to distinguish himself from a guy already in the Screen Actors Guild. (Mental Floss)
