Ok I am looking for some really good useless facts to accompany tests I am giving to my classes. I usually start off the exam with some sort of useless fact, basically as a tool to break the ice for the students, so they are not so tense when it comes to test taking… Here’s a couple I have used lately:

Coconuts kill more people world wide than sharks in any given year.
Anyone have others that stand out as particularly funny?
