As a child, Eloise enjoyed learning everything she could about many subjects, though in those days the best resource was her grandma’s old stack of encyclopedias. Today, Eloise still likes to know a bit about everything, and when she’s not researching information for her Facty.com posts or flexing her history degree, she’s going through the quizzes of other authors on the site - because this is where the facts are found! Visitors to our site turn to Eloise’s fun and factual articles to learn about all kinds of things, from do-it-yourself ideas to the wider world. Those who prefer to get their facts in article format can find Eloise all across the web, as well. Not only is it great to learn from her interesting posts, but most people want to become friends with Eloise after they read her stuff - she’s just so good at explaining things!

Did you know?

The pub quiz was first developed in England?

In 1975, Sharon Burns and Tom Porter formed Burns and Porter, a promotional company for pubs in the UK. Their original goal was to attract business to local pubs on slow nights, and the format was inspired by the popular quiz TV show. They went all out! Not only did they develop and distributed quizzes to local pubs, they even organized a league. The first pub quiz league was comprised of 32 separate teams. Each team had their own 'home' pub and would compete against three other teams on game nights. The quiz nights turned out to become wildly successful. An estimated 22,000 people currently participate in pub nights in the UK. The custom is slowly gaining popularity in the US and other areas, and for much the same reason. These nights tend to be far less organized, though frequently award the winning team small prizes, such as branded merchandise, bottle openers, or drink tickets.
