October 22, 2019

Here are your Fun Facts for today including a fact about Ronald Reagan,another about the Buffalo Sabres and another about Shakespeare!  That's only 3 of the 5 Fun Facts from Adam:

1. 93% of people who survive a suicide attempt will not go on to kill themselves at a later date.

2. Most white sandy beaches are produced by the excretion of the parrotfish. Yep. That beautiful white sand is effectively pooped out by a fish that feeds on coral. The coral is broken down within the fish and the little granules emerge as fresh new grains of sand that will eventually wash up on the shore.

3. The biggest part in any Shakespeare play is Richard in "Richard 3". He has 1,152 lines, which is 32% of the play.

4. The Buffalo Sabres drafted an imaginary Japanese guy in the 11th round of the 1974 NHL draft. It's because their general manager was bored with how long the draft was taking, and he invented a player named Taro Tsujimoto as a protest. The NHL didn't realize it was fake until the next year.

5. The Secret Service agent who saved Ronald Reagan's life during an assassination attempt in 1981 said he was inspired to become an agent when he was a kid and he saw the movie "Code of the Secret Service" starring, you guesses it, Ronald Reagan.
