Did you ever notice that the brain tends to retain the most random information instead of the one you actually need? For instance, how come I can recite Baby Got Back word by word, but can't possibly force my brain to remember my postcode? I'm sure I'm not the only one and this thread that recently went viral on Twitter proves just that. When one person asked, "What’s the most random fact you know?", people delivered. Some of the facts are lesser-known than the others, some you may have heard already - nonetheless, we still found them quite amusing to read. So, the people here at Bored Panda have made you a list of 45 random, but interesting facts that people shared on Twitter. Scroll down below to see all the entries and tell us in the comments below what's the most random fact that you know!

Bored Panda would like to note that this is just one of the theories of how clinking glasses originated.

I'd think that for most poisons, the dose wouldn't be high enough from just spilling liquid from one cup into the other, even more so if you don't drink it all at once.

Just walking into the room where I had the thought usually does it for me. Generally, the reason that something in the room was reminding me to get/do something in the first place. I might forget what when I enter a different room, but when I walk back (normally, not backwards) the reason is still there and I'm reminded again.

Statistically, the average human as approximately one boob and one testicle. Gentle reminder to not believe any average you see! Good analysis of data requires far more than blind calculations of standard equations...

They are more similar in cell morphology, too. As well as in reproduction, to my knowledge.
