RD passes on this list of 301 useless facts, but I put "facts" in quotes because just scanning the first few I already see one that's wrong.

3. The “57″ on the Heinz ketchup bottle represents the number of pickle types the company once had.

Actually, Heinz saw a similar claim in a shoe ad on a train and decided to take the idea for his own.

I'm skeptical of several other "facts" as well, but hey, that leads to a whole new use for the list: a mistake scavenger hunt.
