These IFODs got very few clicks. They are not popular at all. To put it in perspective, the most popular IFOD, Turning 16: What Can 16-Year-Olds Legally Do? has over 10,000 clicks and the least popular one has a mere 155 clicks.

YET – I think these un-clicked IFODS are some of the most interesting of all the IFODs in terms of how the world works.  Here they are, with the least popular first:
