I heard that you all at darkblood, quote "... had a different fun-fact in the faction status every day. That was kinda holy." end quote. So I decided to start off and give you guys a few zany, off the wall, and rather absurd facts each day, starting with three of my favorites.

1. It is illegal to plow rice fields with elephants in North Carolina.

2. Over a 7 year study, it was found that 32.6% of people survive being stabbed in the heart.

3. You may not fish with a lasso in Tennessee.

feel free to add a few of your own if you feel like it, but don't go overboard.
