Fact Contest! Amazing Facts About Near Misses

By Editorial Staff

Time to feed the Fact Generator! This week we're looking for facts about near misses. Here are two to get you started:

• Chocolate magnate Milton Hershey had reservations on the Titanic, but he ended up taking an earlier ship.

• Before the Nazis invaded Paris, H.A. and Margret Rey fled on bicycles. They were carrying the manuscript for Curious George.

We'll put the three best in the Amazing Fact Generator next week. If we pick your fact, you'll get a copy of Cocktail Party Cheat Sheets (along with full credit).

Note: You can see our previous Amazing Fact Contest submissions and results here.
