Today I was reading an email from Soul Pancake and if you aren’t subscribing to their emails, you’re missing out on some beautiful work!  Soul Pancake was created by Rainn Wilson and a creative team he works with – their website is a beautiful compilation of awesomeness that is smart, inspirational and witty and warms the heart strings!  They are famous for creating Kid President and other gems like the short videos featured on OWN that show what it is to be human and it makes you remember to find beauty in our every day world and reconnect to each other.

One of my FAVORITE videos Soul Pancake has made is “Take A Seat” featuring strangers sitting in a ball pit asking questions to get to know each other.  It is a great reminder that we’re not so different from all the folks we pass on the street every day.

Facts that sound like lies, but are TRUE!

Now onto the reason I made this post!  What I loved that I found in the SoulPancake email today was this list from Buzzfeed titled 77 Facts That Sound Like Huge Lies But Are Actually Completely True” which had tons of really funny, outlandish facts that were amusing to read.

Some of our favorites are:

– If you put your finger in your ear and scratch, it sounds just like Pac-Man.

– Vending machines are twice as likely to kill you than a shark is.

– Armadillos nearly always give birth to identical quadruplets.

– Betty White is actually older than sliced bread.
