Wacky Wednesday: Useless Facts

When I was in high school I had a notebook worth of useless facts and random quotes I thought were interesting. When I built my first website I had a useless facts page. I enjoy knowing things like this, so in a strike of nostalgia I present to you five useless facts. Enjoy!

# The phrase "rule of thumb" is derived from and old English law which stated that you couldn't beat your wife with anything wider than your thumb.

# Stewardesses is the longest word typed with only the left hand.

# Shakespeare invented the word "assassination" and "bump."

# The sentence "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" uses every letter in the alphabet.

# The average chocolate bar has 8 insects' legs in it.
