    Have a fun or interesting fact to offer? This is a good place to post it!

    Here's a couple to get us started:


    - Did you know that Hippo milk is pink?

    - The finger where most wedding rings are worn, is the only finger with a vein that runs directly to you heart.

    - Every day at least 9,000,000 people celebrate their birthday.

    Here's a weird one.

    There's a pill you can buy for $425 that turns you poop into a glittering gold. The pill releases pieces of gold inside the consumer's digestive tract that can be seen in the resulting excrement. I cannot imagine why you would want this to happen, but apparently it's a thing.

    You see your nose all of the time. It's right in front of both eyes. Your brain just "chooses" to ignore it.

    Just like my typing mistakes. I proof read every post several times but my mind chooses to ignore misspellings, grammar, or enter the missing words. It is my finger and brains fault, I am not responsible.

    Humpty Dumpty was a rhymm about the Fall of Rome.

    " Ring around the Rosey ,pocket full of posies ,you fall I fall we all fall down" was about the Jewish Holocaust. Jews would walk around with rose pedals in their pockets to drop in front of other jews for ID [ if I remember right, but it was about jews] .

    Three little pigs was about Bible verse " man who built his house on sand,etc,etc, etc,.

    That's what I was taught. The rose scent was used to try to hide the smell of death.

    Yep, seems like it is historical attributed to the plague but not with absolute certainty. Time definitely obscures the past.

    If it makes you feel better, here is a list of things that many (most) people believe are true but are not.

    - You can see many made made objects from space, not just the Great Wall of China.
    - The color orange was named after the fruit and not the other way around.
    - It's not harmful to pick up a baby bird and return it to it's nest (and mama bird won't reject it).
    - Blood is not blue inside your body, ever. It's light red or dark red depending on oxygen levels.
    - Eve did not give Adam an apple in the garden. It was more likely a fig or pomegranate.
    - Humans have way more than 5 senses, it's closer to 10-20. We also don't use only 10% of our brain power.
    - Napoleon was 5'7" at a time when the average man was 5'5". He was not short.
    - Swimming after you eat does not cause cramps. No matter what your Mom said.
    - George Washington did not have wooden teeth. He had ivory teeth and dead people's teeth.
    - Bats are not blind. Most species have good to excellent vision and amazing night vision.
    - House flies live longer than 24 hours. Most can live up to 30 days.
    - Dogs don't feel guilty. When they look guilty they are merely responded to you seeming mad.

    Bet you didn't know these little know animal facts. Bet after reading them all, you'll want to come back as a pig.

    * A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes. OMG I'm jealous.

    * A flea can jump 350 times it's body length. That's like a human jumping a football field. I'm still stuck on the pig!

    * Under optimum conditions, one female cockroach can produce two million offspring in one year. 2 MILLION! One was painful enough.

    * The female praying mantis initiates sex by ripping the male's head off. Not as lucky as the pig.

    * Some lions mate over 50 times a day. Lucky lions!

    * Elephants are the only animal that can't jump. They should get tips from the flea.

    * A cat's urine glows under black light. Who would try that and why?

    * An ostrich's eye is bigger than it's brain. I know some people like that.

    * Starfish have no brains. I know people like that too.

    * Dolphins and humans are the only species that have sex for pleasure. What about the pig?

    * An octopus's testes are located in its head. I sometimes wonder if men's are too.

    * You can tell a turtle's gender by its sound. Males grunt, females hiss. Kinda like humans.

    Very interesting. Switzerland may be the first to use the shelters since they are fooling with an unknown and strange type of atom collisions. Creating another Big Bang.
    Be concerned about CERN. :eek: If the god particle ain't bad enough for you just think of those creatures from hell outside dancing around.:ghostly:

    Actually, the thing to worry about at CERN is not them creating another Big Bang, but them accidentally creating the seed that grows into a black hole.
    This becomes a self-feeding reaction and in a day or 2, the entire planet Earth would be a black hole the size of a basketball.
    ...and that would be really baaad, mmmkay?
