About Fun Facts:

The fun facts listed here may be common knowledge to most people but it is always a good idea to do some research on a fun fact before saying it as if it were a definitive truth. For example, lemurs share many important qualities with humans but they also still resemble rodents more than primates because of their small brains and large teeth. While this is an interesting piece of information, there is no scientific evidence that they are not primates because this would change how we categorize all mammals. 


While fun facts are always interesting to know, it is important to use them sparingly in conversation or writing. Fun facts should not be used as a replacement for factual information because they often lack evidence or are based on speculation. When used correctly, fun facts can add some interesting trivia to any conversation or article.
