5 Fun Facts From Adam!

October 11, 2019

One of my favortie things is when someone sends me a fact that they want to see in the daily #FunFacts! Number 4 is one of those today! Thanks Amy Jordan!!! Happy FRIDAY:

1. Lamborghini started as a tractor company in 1948. The founder didn't start his car company until 1963.

2. A Swiss army knife is called a "MacGyver knife" in South Korea.

3. The first time goal tending was called in the WNBA was in 2008, 11 years after the league debuted. The first dunk happened in the fifth year.

4. Canned pumpkin is actually not pumpkin at all! It's a mixture made from a variety of winter squash! Libby's, the brand that produces about 85% of the country's canned "pumpkin" filling, has actually developed a certain variety of squash that they grow, package, and distribute to supermarkets across the country! (Thanks again, AMY! for this one!!)

5. "Gangnam Style" became the first YouTube video to get one billion views. And it happened on December 21st, 2012 which was also the day the apocalypse was supposed to happen.

6. French law requires all dead bodies transported into the country to have identification. So when the mummy of Ramses the Second was transported from Egypt to France in 1974, it had a passport with the occupation as "King (deceased)."
