    We use the letter U. I just didn't see how that statement was much of a "fact".

    I understand the concept. Those facts that are listed are meant to bring a certain surprise or make the reader say "wow, those are cool coincidences". I don't see the point in that particular fact. It's like saying that my monitor is 23 inches. Well whoopy-freakin-doo. Just because it's a fact doesn't make it interesting. (btw, my monitors are both 19") I can find a whole lot of things that come out to 23, it's the fact that they're interesting things that supposed to make an interesting list.

    That one just doesn't fit. I mean, you could do that formula for almost the entire alphabet.

    20 + 3 = 23
