Origin of “Ben Facts”

There are certain things that I accept as truth. Some of these things are based on facts. Others are things that got into my brain somehow, but not from reputible sources.

For this reason, I have to avoid The Onion.

Other things, I say in public and Emily will ask me about how/where I knew something, and I will realize I don’t know.

A few months ago, I had a long conversation with a welder about welding, and knew a remarkable amount, but I had no idea why. After several days of soul searching, it turns out that my welding information was from things I learned while shopping for bicycles, and the welding that goes into those, with their different materials.

So, welcome to Ben Facts. The blog where I write about things that I find interesting that may not exist anywhere else, and may not be true anywhere except my brain.
