25 Not So Fun Facts To Not Brighten Your Day

We’ve all read lists of fun facts. They brighten your day and make you feel good about yourself. And that’s a great thing! Even here on List25, we’ve done plenty of “fun facts” lists on various topics. Today, however, we thought that we would try something a little bit different. Instead of “fun facts,” we’re going to do “not so fun facts.”

Before continuing though, we’d like to post a mini-disclaimer. Some of these facts may offend the sensibilities of some of our readers. If you are the kind of person who prefers to think of your pet hamster as a cute and cuddly fur ball rather than a child eating cannibal…do not read on. For the rest of you, prepare to have your perspective shifted a little (we weren’t joking about the hamster).

As they say, ignorance is bliss. By the end of this list, however, your ignorance will have retreated ever so slightly and possibly your bliss along with it. It’s true, the world can be a nasty place, and today we’re going to dive into some of that nastiness. So, if you think you’re ready, these are 25 Not So Fun Facts To Not Brighten Your Day.
