Ah, yes. The fifth of July. A day normally reserved for recovering from an out-of-control 'Merican birthday celebration, falls on a Thursday this year. That means instead of me sitting by the pool or on the lake drinking cold beers to ease the pain carried over from yesterday, I'm at work, with a full on body and headache. I even had to scale back my celebration because I had to be responsible enough to make it in today. And that, my friends is un-American.

So, I thought I can't be the only one in this predicament. I know you are just killing time until the weekend finally shows up, just like me. S, I'm gonna hook you up. This website of Random Facts I stumbled across todaywill effectively kill nearly an hour of your work day -- but you've got to explore it like I did.

Some random facts:

  • There are twice as many Kangaroos in Australia as people.
  • If the population of China walked past you in single file, the line would never end because of the rate of reproduction
  • By law, Bourbon must be produced in America, made from at least 51 percent corn, and made from a fermented sourmash of grains.
  • Ninety-nine percent of all forms of life that have existed on Earth are now extinct.

Here's a way to use up even more of your work time: copy and paste the facts to your friends Facebook page to mess with 'em, just like I did.

I have a buddy who loves macaroni and cheese, and thanks to this website, I was able to call him a Canadian.

Don't feel bad, either. It's their fault we shouldn't be at work today.
