About Every Little Thing

Every Little Thing is a factual answering service, specializing in small questions. Are “speed patrolled by aircraft” signs a lie? Who does the background dialogue in movies? Is the Dewey Decimal System controlling our minds? What is the most badass member of the animal kingdom? It’s the flamingo. Show some respect.
