Daily factoids for your amusement.

Our favorite little known fact has to be the definition of factoid.  The etymology clearly alludes to an understanding of the word, yet it is continuously misconstrued.  Hence, de Factoid:  A website dedicated to educating the public in the most fun and humorous way possible.

We love the idea, enjoyment, and social implications of factoids.  This website was started and is maintained by two writers - one a scientist, the other a psychology professional.  However, we have multiple contributers who help us to write and create new factoids. 

Help us spread the word - tell your friends, make fan pages, microblog, blog, and please feel free to contact us anytime.
