How much was Eddie Van Halen paid for his guitar solo on Michael Jackson’s, “Beat It”? What was the first item ever sold on Ebay? What is odd about what lobsters eat? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:

1. One of the creators of “Baywatch” was legally blind. Even though 90% of his vision was gone, he wound up directing 40 episodes. (Hollywood Reporter)

2. There have been 1,038 different final score combinations in NFL history. The most recent was New England beating Oakland 33-to-8 two weeks ago.  There had never been a 33-to-8 final score before. (Scorigami)

3. One of the very first items ever sold on eBay in 1995 was a broken laser pointer, for $14.83. When the founder of eBay asked why the guy bought it, he said, quote, “I’m a collector of broken laser pointers.” (Wikipedia)

4. Eddie Van Halen did the guitar solo Michael Jackson used on “Beat It” for FREE. He says, quote, “I did it as a favor. I was a complete fool.” (Wikipedia)

5. Lobsters are cannibals!  When they’re hungry and looking for food, they’ll happily eat another lobster. (Time)
