Some FACTS are better than others... Or at least more interesting.  These are a 9 out of 10 in my opinion.  Here are YOUR Fun Facts:

1.  A day on Venus lasts 243 Earth days, while a year on Venus only lasts 225 Earth days.

2.  Unlike Indiana Jones, Harrison Ford doesn't have a fear of snakes.  He was in the Boy Scouts and even worked as a camp counselor where he helped kids get their Reptile Study merit badge.

3.  There's a word for the knot in a noose or lasso.  It's called a honda.

4.  The state of Delaware is named after the Delaware River, not vice versa.  The Delaware River got its name from a line of English barons, the De La Warrs.

5.  Under a federal law, the U.S. denies a visa to anyone who's a polygamist.
