#28: Useless Facts
Sometimes, we just need to think of useless facts to get our minds off the things going on in our lives. When life becomes too much to handle, that’s when we like to scroll the web for useless facts. Because there’s nothing like getting your mind filled with useless facts to stop thinking, even for a moment, about other things.
The thing about useless facts is, as useless as they may be, they are often fascinating. Take this story, for example: there’s nothing we can do with this information, it helps us in no way in our personal lives, and it’s pretty much the definition of useless. But there’s something so fascinating, and hauntingly disturbing about it, that we’re so glad we learned this.
