Marcus Parks, a native of Lubbock, Texas, is the research-driven intellectual mastermind behind the content of the show. He spends up to 200 hours a week in his Pop-tart-powered Man Cave, scouring both print and online resources for every Interesting Fact available. His other interests include being interrupted by bearded Vikings, research (did we mention that?) and being a skinsman in various beat-rock combos.

He once dated a girl with a tail. And was once nicknamed "dogmeat". He has three masters in just science and two in advanced remedial.
