Louis XIV of France really was as unpleasant a fellow as he's been depicted. In 1674, when he was visiting a school at Clermont, he heard from the school's authorities that one of the children, a nine- year-old Irish lad named Francis Seldon, had made a pun about the king's bald head.
Louis was furious. He had a secret warrant drawn up for the child's arrest, and young Seldon was thrown into solitary confinement in the Bastille. His parents, members of one of Europe's richest merchant families, were told simply that the child had disappeared. Days turned to months, months to years, and Louis himself passed away. But Francis spent sixty-nine years "in the hole" for making fun of the king's baldness.

 In 2006 someone tried to sell New Zealand on eBay. The price got up to $3,000 before eBay shut it down.

About 600 000 people die of dysentery yearly!

You may say it's a waste of time but when the guy who tried to invent video games told us we said no one needs it and he almost did not invent it.

On the topic of phobias, the fear of long words is a long word.

Imagine trying to tell someone they have the phobia...

I was going to say that, But I didn't want two phobias in a row. So I was hoping yours would be different.

"Fact" does not describe something as being true. A fact is something that can be proven true or false.

The statement "Fish have four legs, with twelve claws on each foot." is a fact. A false fact, but a fact nonetheless.

Merriam Webster: the quality of being actual :  actuality <a question of fact hinges on evidence>

Oxford Dictionary: A thing that is known or proved to be true:

Dictionary.com: something that actually exists; reality; truth:

Your fun fact number 5 is right tho

This thread asked for fun facts, not incorrect facts.
