Forget yawning through sales pitches; we're here to sparkle up your day with trivia that'll make you the life of any party.


📚 The Curious Case of "Factoids" 📚

You've probably tossed around the term "factoid" more times than you can count, thanks to the likes of Steve Wright on Radio 2. But did you know the term has a twist as intriguing as our fizz cocktails?

Coined by the legendary Norman Mailer in his 1973 Marilyn Monroe biography, "factoid" originally described facts that weren't facts at all – untrue bits of knowledge that gained traction in magazines or newspapers. That's right, a "factoid" is actually a faux fact!

And what about that misleading suffix "-oid"? Far from indicating something small, it hints at resemblance without identity – think "androids" that mimic humans or "ovoid" shapes nearly, but not quite, oval. It's all about being similar yet distinctly different.

At Gasm Drinks, we revel in the joy of suffixes, especially our cherished "-gasm," symbolizing nothing short of an intensely pleasurable experience. But let's set the record straight: for those tiny nuggets of truth, "factlets" might be the more accurate term, though "factoids" has charmed its way into our lexicon, misnomer and all.


🌌 Factoid or Factlet? The Great Wall of China From Space 🌌

 Diving into our treasure chest of "factoids," here's a classic: "The Great Wall of China is visible from space." This, friends, is a factoid in its purest form – an assertion that dazzles but doesn't hold up under the astronaut's gaze. Cities, dams, and airports claim that cosmic visibility far more convincingly.
