We Fact Up attempts to answer the question – “how much would you know without the help of the internet?” The show was born out of the notion that before the internet existed people would have to work things out for themselves when asked a question – things like “who invented the high five” or “what does O.K. stand for”? Fans send in their questions and the gang try to work out the answer without the help of Google, then when they’ve agreed on an answer they Google it to see just how close (or how far off) they were. We’ve also recently discovered that the show is being used to rehabilitate patients suffering from brain injuries to enhance their cognitive flexibility, so that’s good. Oh, and it’s funny. Yeah, that too.
