There is a very sad fact about the octopus in this round of Fun Facts. Also, who had the chance to buy Facebook for $75 million but passed? It’s Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. Hot water freezes faster than cold water. It’s called the Mpemba Effect. (Pronounced mmm-PEM-buh.) The theory behind it is that the molecules in hot water are more stretched out, which allows them to release energy faster and freeze quicker. (IFL Science)

2. The 1974 movie “The Great Gatsby” and the 2013 movie “The Great Gatsby” both won the Oscar for Best Costume Design. (Costume Craze)

3. Myspace had the opportunity to buy Facebook for $75 million back in 2005 but they passed. (Wikipedia)

4. There are 14 U.S. states that are split into two time zones: Alaska, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, South Dakota, Oregon, Tennessee, and Texas. (Howder Family)

5. All octopuses are orphans. Male octopuses die right after they mate, and female octopuses die right after their eggs hatch. (How Stuff Works)
