Free Fun Facts

Ever wanted to know where hurricanes get their names? Or how tall and how old the Eiffel Tower is? Or how cats seem to be able to see in the dark? Well now there's a website that can help you learn all these, and other cool trivia facts.

In case you were curious, the Eiffel Tower is 986 feet high, unless you count the antenna, in which case you get a total of 1052 feet. There are 6 rotating lists of 21 names for hurricanes, and when one results in mass devastation and loss of life, the name is removed from the list, and a new one put in place. And cats' eyes are reflective, so they take what little light there is, and reflect it back out onto whatever they are looking at.
