Ten fresh Rubenerd Fun Facts, part two


Fun Facts!

Given it's just another manic Monday over here (and in short order in the rest of the world) I figured I'd post another 10 Rubenerd Fun Facts to help us all get through it a little easier. As I've mentioned previously, all these facts are irrefutable and 110% true.

If you missed them, feel free to refer to the first Rubenerd Fun Facts post and my post where I ecstatically reported my purchase of David Letterman's Late Show Fun Facts book. And as usual, feel free to take notes.
