  1. For the Woodstock card, shouldn’t that read “boycotted the products of the other diary companies”?

    Why would you boycott the products of an awesome farmer who lets you have Woodstock on his property?

    • The youngsters that participated in the event didn’t boycott his products. The other farmers and local who did not want the event to happen boycotted his goods.

  2. I was reading these with my kids and they were really enjoying them until we all had to stop because you guys described a parasite as “metal as fuck”. Thanks for that. Very professional

    • This website is called kick ass facts, what did you expect?

    • Did anyone say this website was ok for children?
      All content is also user submitted, maybe you should have googled facts for kids?

      This must be your first day on the internet

      Fun fact:Dylan is a twat

    • Dylan, site is kickASSfacts, not childrenstorytime.

    • somtimes i like to wee in a bottle then drink it

    • Your inability to screen information found on a website called kick-ass facts before exposing your excretions to it, is your failing as a parent, not the failing of this website, who has absolutely no obligation to accommodate for your hellspawn. The word “fuck” is just a word that has exactly as much power over your children as you give it. A sound you make with your mouth. Your children arent, in anyway, going to be harmed by the utterance of a single word.

      In other words, fuck you.

  24. A single celled parasite called Toxoplasma Gondii rewires a rats brain to seek out cat urine. This essentially gives the rat suicidal tendencies so that it will be killed and consumed by its natural predator, transmitting the metal as fuck parasite on to its new host. It is also one of the most common parasite in the human population and its effects may not be limited just to rats
