Writer Asks Twitter Users for Their Best Random Facts and People Do Not Disappoint

Whether you’re a trivia nerd or not, having an interesting fact on hand is always useful for impressing friends and family. Writer and activist Brittany Packnett Cunningham recently took to Twitter to ask people to share the most random facts they know—some of which are pretty astonishing.

The now-viral Twitter thread reveals an entire stream of weird and wonderful facts that cover a wide range of topics, from scientific discoveries to pop culture trivia. For example, did you know that fish cough? When particles or bacteria get sucked in through their gills while breathing, the fish ventilation cycle is interrupted with a cough to clear it. Another Twitter user reveals that “Sloths don’t fart”—instead, gas is absorbed into the bloodstream and simply breathed out.

Another stand out contribution was by Twitter user @Okeating, who tweeted, “Salvador Dali designed the wrapper for Chupa Chups.” As one of the many surreal Dalí facts we've shared in the past, this is indeed true. The eccentric artist updated the iconic logo and even suggested it be printed on top of the wrapper so that it was always fully displayed.
