Amazing Fact Generator

From Mental Floss, the Amazing Fact Generator is kind of fun. Are the facts factual? I don't know.

I checked this one out and it is accurate. I like the idea of having someone else pump your gasoline. Somehow it would make me feel I'm getting a little payback for being gouged. Wouldn't help much, but a little satisfaction is nice.

In New Jersey and Oregon, pumping your own gas is illegal. These states banned self-service out of fear that untrained consumers might light themselves on fire. The laws are surprisingly popular with citizens, and any mention of their repeal has been met with fervent opposition.
