There are nearly 8 billion people on this planet, and everybody constantly wants to know things. Whether you’re into astronomy and the whole chicken or egg thing, or you’re simply a curious person – all the answers that humankind can give you would probably be not enough, and it’s absolutely understandable. We’re floating God-knows-where around a bunch of fairly similar and large astronomical bodies while having to get up and go to work every single day – how could you not wonder about things? 

However, sometimes looking for answers can do no good. An existential crisis can seriously mess up your whole nervous system, which is we have multiple options that can help us get away from reality whenever we need to. But from time to time, it gets rather samey and watching a show or scrolling through your feed doesn’t keep you entertained anymore:

This is when a Twitter page with over 1.3M followers dedicated to “quite interesting” facts comes to the rescue: nearly 50K tweets worth of lightweight and educational posts that’ll keep you occupied for hours. We’ve gathered a few of the best ones, but don’t hesitate to use the comment section to add your “quite interesting” fact.

Besides, the “Quite Interesting” Twitter page is actually a game show that currently broadcasts on the BBC Two channel. It started out in 2003 and already has 19 seasons. However, the quiz show has more of a comedic twist where well-known British personalities compete and score points not necessarily based on the correctness of their answers but the funniness. And as for the plot of the show, it focuses on the participants answering obscure questions, making it almost impossible to give a correct answer, which is why humor remains the main focus.
