HELLO!  I love FACTS and here are 5 hand crafted and selected JUST for YOU:
1. Every U.S. president since FDR has been named “Time” magazine’s Person of the Year at least once . . . except Gerald Ford. But the day after “Time” made “You” the Person of the Year in 2006, Ford died. So since them choosing “You” technically made everyone in the world the Person of the Year, maybe that counts for him? (Wikipedia)

2. The longest year ever was 1972. It was a leap year, so it had an extra day, and it had two extra leap seconds. (Los Angeles Times)

3. “Where the Wild Things Are” was originally going to be called “Where the Wild Horses Are” until Maurice Sendak realized he couldn’t draw horses. (Los Angeles Times)

4. Rene Descartes, one of the most famous philosophers, had a fetish for cross-eyed women. And realizing he had it helped him overcome it . . . which drove his landmark writings on the concept of free will. (Google Books)

5. French’s American mustard is owned by a British company. (Wikipedia)
