Similar to the Snapple Fact of The Day, but you can find facts all over. Please try to provide some evidence or source, so we do not become inundated with urban legends.

IFotD:

Andorra, a small European country, was legally at war (WWI) with Germany until it declared peace in 1939 because it had been forgotten in the Treaty of Versailles.

IFotD:

People born in Northern Ireland qualify British and Irish citizenship and can hold both.

Northern Ireland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them.

Blonde has mentioned this before.

"In Korea, it is commonly believed that sleeping in a closed room with an electric fan running can be fatal in the summer. According to the Korean government, "In some cases, a fan turned on too long can cause death from suffocation, hypothermia, or fire from overheating." The Korea Consumer Protection Board issued a consumer safety alert recommending that electric fans be set on timers, direction changed and doors left open. Belief in fan death is common even among knowledgeable medical professionals in Korea. According to Dr. Yeon Dong-su, dean of Kwandong University's medical school, "If it is completely sealed, then in the current of an electric fan, the temperature can drop low enough to cause a person to die of hypothermia."

Un-fucking-believable. Dr. Yeon Dong-su should know a fan doesn't lower the ambient temperature of a room at all.

In football, coaches are allowed to defer penalties all the time. In baseball, there is ONLY ONE time a manager is allowed to make a choice on a call.

Runners on first and third, one out. Batter swings and his bat tips the catchers glove. The ball is driven to the outfield. The runner on third tags up and scores, the runner on first returns to first.

Normally this would be interference by the catcher and the runner would be awarded first base. However, this takes away the run that would have scored without the interference. So the manager of the batting team gets to decide if he wants a) bases loaded, 1 out, no runs in or b) runner on 1st, 2 outs, one run in.

If there are no outs, this doesn't apply. If there isn't a runner on first, it doesn't apply. It is a completely unique rule.

The term rule of thumb comes from the old English law that men couldn't beat their wives with anything wider than their thumb.

President Truman considered adding lightning bolts to the arrows that the eagle on the presidential seal holds, to signify the atomic bomb, but decided against it.

However, the notion that the eagle's head faces the olive branch during times of peace but turns to the right to face the arrows during times of war is a misconception.
