It all started a couple of months ago while arguing with my Let's Get Sciencey brother in arms, Marco. The subject? How many Eiffel Towers deep is the ocean?

Of course, we Googled and "mathed" our way to the answer.

After that, we kept looking for more random science facts to feed our awkward personalities that rely only on weird bits of trivia when put in the awful situation of attending a party.

The hardest thing for us was to find at least one genuine scientific source to back up the facts we found, so, after filtering all our information, arguing like two bitter old ladies, and continuously raising our standards, we gathered 100 weird science facts.

However, ain't nobody got time to read 100 facts. So we selected our favorite 29 and illustrated them, just to prove how freaking ridiculous they are.
