If you’re not already one of @uberfacts‘s 6.5 million followers, stop what you’re doing and rectify the situation immediately.

Kris Sanchez‘s ridiculously popular trivia account—which provides a steady flow of “the most unimportant things you’ll never need to know”—is the ultimate procrastination tool: Scrolling through its funny, interesting, and ridiculous content is actually educational, and therefore not a waste but a truly productive use of your time. While most of the crazy food-related “facts” are pure comedy, some are actually based in truth.

Until the end of the month, you can download the new UberFacts app for free, which lets you browse via categories like The Internet, Wildlife, and Celebrities as well as share information you like via text and social media. We highly recommend it, if only for the conversational ammunition.

See what happens when you drop some of the below knowledge bombs (acquired from UberFacts) over lunch.
