I use fact sheets, tips, quizzes, and other unconventional forms—not as gimmicks, but because I’m fascinated by how putting facts in a particular context shapes our understanding. Putting facts in a particular context—like a true/false quiz—exposes assumptions and paradoxes. Consider:
True/False Churchill’s mother married a man sixteen days older than Churchill.
True/False Churchill’s mother married a man three years younger than Churchill.
Are you surprised that both statements are true?
