Weird Fun Facts and Unbelievable True Stories

Welcome to Weird but True Facts where we’re all about weird fun facts and unbelievable true stories. We also enjoy investigating weird but true facts for kids, in the hope that a fascination for the unusual will develop into a passion for learning. Many have developed an enduring love of history, geography and even literature founded upon intriguing oddities they’ve stumbled upon.

At first glance, the term ‘true facts’ may seem to suggest a redundant use of language. After all, aren’t all facts true by definition – aren’t they known or proven to be true?

We believe this is not always the case and that, as a rule, facts are not immutable and never have been. What happened to Pluto? Not so long ago, it was a fact that there were at least nine planets in our solar system. Now, we accept – perhaps reluctantly – that there are eight.

We must also consider the prevalence of post-truthfacts – cherry-picked to support any desired conclusion – and alternative facts which, simply put, are the lies used to refute inconvenient facts.

Weird but True Facts is committed to due diligence. We do our homework. During research, a number of the facts we thought would knock your socks off turned out to be alternative facts that had gained a measure of popularity. 

All the same, we have plenty of weird, wild and wonderful true facts up our sleeves. Prepare to be amazed.
