Google’s “Fun Fact”

Bored at work today? Need to boost your trivia knowledge now that all the kids are back in school? Try Googling “fun facts” or “I’m feeling curious”.

Google’s latest trick aims to entertain and amaze, if random facts push your buttons. A new dynamic box appears below a search for “fun fact”, “fun facts” or “I’m feeling curious” showing tidbits like “Do crocodiles cry?”, which apparently some reptiles do.



The more curious can keep hitting the button labelled “ask another question” to generate seemingly endless random facts.

For instance, did you know it’s called the silver screen because it used to be silver?
