Best / most popular 'Factoids'


#1

Things that people think are true bit actually aren’t


#2

That there’s an arrow in the FedEx logo. It’s just were the E and x meet.


#3

i recently learned from my pen wanker (yes) brother that the thing about how fountain pen nibs adjust to the writer’s hand over time is bullshit and basically just put about by pen wankers to stop people borrowing their fancy, expensive pens.


#4

the nasa space pen / soviets used a pencil one


#5

The van halen “no brown m and ms” story

It’s true, but people dont know the reasons behind it


#6

It does still resemble an arrow, though. What you mean is that the logo designer didn’t do it intentionally? A spokesperson for FedEx says it is intentional. But then they would say that, wouldn’t they?


#7

Also stuff about drinking X number of lites of water a day


#8

I have never heard of this


#9

round earth


#10

Now that you mention it, I can’t remember the last time I saw one of their vans in real life. Can you?


#17

Oh wait, it was this morning. Never mind.


#18

more of a wolf


#19

the story is that it’s a test to ensure attention to detail on the part of the venue staff, in a bid to prevent shoddy workmanship in the setting up of the rig and so on, right?
