What is the only U.S. state that produces coffee? How did the Mad Hatter get his name? How long could you live in space without a spacesuit? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. The world record for the most people on a commercial flight is 1,088. That number also includes two BABIES that were born on the flight. El Al Airlines helped evacuate Ethiopian Jews in 1991 and flew them to Israel and they fit that many people by removing all of the seats. (Guinness World Records)

2. Lewis Carroll never uses the name “Mad Hatter” in “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”. The character is just called The Hatter, and he has a “mad tea party,” so people started to blend the two. (Wikipedia)

3. You could last about 15 seconds in space without a space suit and helmet before you’d go unconscious but you could stay alive for up to three minutes. (Gizmodo)

4. The only U.S. state that produces coffee is Hawaii. (Wikipedia)

5. Eight out of 10 Americans ban smoking in their homes which is almost double from 20 years ago. (CDC)
