Here are 5 Fun Facts that will make you feel smarter for a day or two!

1.  Plastic surgery has nothing to do with the materials used.  Plastic is from the Greek word "plastikos" which means "to mold" or "to form."

2.  When marshmallows were created in the early 1800s, they were flavored using the root of a plant called the marsh mallow.  But it was hard to extract the sap from the root, so marshmallows haven't been made out of actual marsh mallows since the late 1800s.

3.  The only college in the country that has intramural tackle football is Notre Dame.  They wear pads and helmets and everything.

4.  The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World only existed at the same time for 54 years, from 280 B.C., when the Colossus of Rhodes was completed in Greece, until 226 B.C., when it was destroyed by an earthquake.

5.  Mozart composed more than 20 pieces of music before he turned 10.
