Anyone else who’s into completely random trivia/facts? Read something crazy lately that’s blown your mind? Please share! [i can’t be the only one who stalks Buzzfeed for this sort of thing, surely??!!]
I’m doing a US history paper and had some downtime at work today to do some reading. Really interesting section on immigration in the late 19th & early 20th century.
Did you know… that between 1820-1920 FOUR MILLION Irish emigrated to the US, and between 1830-1930 SIX million Germans???
Given I come from a country (NZ) where the current population is little over 4 million…mind blown.
Please post something weird & wonderful! Anyone else love doing pub quizzes? i love learning things that come out of left field, they’re excellent for quizzes 😛
