What did Ian Fleming buy when we sold his first James Bond novel? What percentage of humans have green eyes? What happened between the years the Cubs won the pennant? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:

1. In the years between when the Chicago Cubs won their two most recent World Series, 1908 and 2016, Arizona became a state, got a Major League Baseball team, and won a World Series. (National Geographic)

2. When Ian Fleming finished his first “James Bond” novel, he celebrated by buying himself a gold-plated typewriter. (Bloomsbury)

3. In “2001: A Space Odyssey”, the computer’s name is HAL and all three of those letters are just one letter away from “IBM.” Stanley Kubrick says that was a coincidence. (Wikipedia)

4. More than 50% of the world has brown eyes.  Only 1% to 2% of people have green eyes. (Buzzle)

5. Scientists can use one circumcised foreskin, which is about the size of a stamp, to grow almost four ACRES of skin that can be transplanted onto burn victims. (How Stuff Works)
