If you know me irl, you probably know that I have a thing for collecting random facts. Here are a few of my favorites!
1.The longest word in the English language is crazy long (click here to read it, kudos if actually scroll all the way through it- especially if you’re on a phone or tablet!) Try saying that 10 times fast.
2. Did you know that there is a singular word for confetti? Confetti is the collective jumble of colored paper, but just one piece is called a “confetto“. It makes sense if you think about it, I can’t believe I never thought of that before…
3. Did you know that there is a word that means “pertaining to breakfast?” There is, and that word is none other than “jentacular.” Honestly, that word doesn’t strike me as very breakfast-y, but hey, it’s still an impressive word to casually work into conversation!
4. It’s illegal to slam your car door in Switzerland. Plus, you can’t wash your car with a pressure washer on Sundays there, either. Weird!
5. A quarter of the worlds hazelnuts are used for Nutella.
that’s it for today! Do you have any odd facts to share?
