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!

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...

“I asked the Zebra, are you black with white stripes? Or white with black stripes? And the zebra asked me, Are you good with bad habits? Or are you bad with good habits? Are you noisy with quiet times? Or are you quiet with noisy times? Are you happy with some sad days? Or are you sad with some happy days? Are you neat with some sloppy ways? Or are you sloppy with some neat ways? And on and on and on and on and on and on he went. I’ll never ask a zebra about stripes...again.” ― Shel Silverstein

Embryological evidence, however, shows that the animal's background colour is black and the white stripes and bellies are additions.

The argument has not been settled, since the "proof" is that some species have white bellies. But so do many of the species of wild ass which are closely related to zebras - darker of the top with lighter bellies. What is interesting is that stripes are really effective in confusing horseflies and keeping them from biting. They provide no advantage in camouflage or confusing predators. They may help with losing heat, but the evidence for that is inconclusive.

No, it doesn't. And: Africans traditionally do believe they are black with white stripes while Europeans think the opposite.

Nah I won't more info about this. Zebra skin is white, and they have more white fur overall. What is this dude talking about? That's an interesting claim to make with nothing to back it up at all, or further explanation as to how they figure.

Baby zebras are black. They quickly get white spots that eventually turn into stripes.

In Britain, most foods are exempt from the value-added tax, but potato chips — known as crisps — and “similar products made from the potato, or from potato flour,” are taxable. However, it was decided that Pringles are exempt from the tax, mainly because they have less potato content than a potato chip.
