“Life is like a coin. You can spend it any way you wish, but you only spend it once.”

Lillian Dickson


Two goldfish are in a tank. One says to the other, "Do you know how to drive this thing?"

Fun Fact

Nearly two people die each second.


While four babies are born on Earth every second, it's estimated that around two people pass away at the same time. That means that 105 people die each minute, 6,316 people die each hour, 151,600 people die each day, and 55.3 million people die each year. Sorry, folks—not all interesting facts are fun!

Reading Fact

Encouraging children to read may be the key to a better future

As you would probably imagine, reading has a major impact on our development from a very young age. Our mental and emotional development can be fast-tracked through reading, and there is a lot for our young ones to gain if we teach them to love reading from a young age. 

History Fact

Cool Cool

Ever wondered what the “D” in “D-Day” stands for? Well, wonder no more! It stands for “Day.” Yes, it’s Day-Day. It’s a military term for when an attack is to be launched.

Movie/TV Trivia

The names of the taxi driver and the policeman in everybody’s favourite Yuletide outing, It’s A Wonderful Life, are Bert and Ernie. The writers working on Sesame Street at the time claim it’s merely a coincidence.

Movie/TV Quote

"My tastes are very singular."

Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)

Fifty Shades of Grey is an extremely creepy movie. Yes, it gave us the single best Beyoncé cover in the whole world, but it also gave us tons and tons of people who thought a man cajoling a woman into BDSM because he knows she likes him is… the height of romance? Christian Grey hems and haws around the issue of just telling the lady he likes that he's into some casual dom/sub action every now and then, describing his "tastes" as "very singular." Eeeugh. But, what better way to take back our power and agency from patriarchal depictions of desire than to meme the living daylights out of its weirdest scene? Look up "My tastes are very singular" on YouTube and you'll get everything from video game consoles to anime girl body pillows to One Direction theme bedrooms. Anything is better than a "Red Room of Pain."
