OT// Useless, but fun little facts.

I'm sure everyone has come across some utterly useless fact that only exists to entertain people.

Here's a few.

111,111,111 X 111,111,111 = 12345678987654321 (take a close look at the number order on the answer)

The Number 42 (Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy anyone???)
-The angle at which lights reflects off water to create a rainbow is 42 degrees
-Fox Mulder (the X-files) liven in apartment number 42
-The number of dots on a pair of dice - 42
-A Wonderbra consists of 42 individual parts
-The world record jump by a kangaroo is 42 feet

Every person has a unique tongue print

An average person laughs about 15 times a day


Anyone else got any useless facts? :D

Not a fact, but a bunch of questions:
If it was only a 3 hour tour what the heck did the Howells have a complete wardrobe with them?

In old Superman shows, in almost every one Supernman gets shot at, he stands there and takes the bullets at 6 ft. When the gun is empty the bad guy always throws the gun at superman................and he DUCKS! Why?? He just took 6 friggin bullets.

How do blind people know when to stop wiping when they are on the comode?

Where do seedless grapes come from? There are no seeds to grow the things?

Why do 24 hour convenience stores have locks on the doors?

Why do we park in a driveway, but drive on a parkway?

A man is lying dead in the middle of a field with a pack on his back.................................. how did he die?

I would hazard a guess at parachute failing to open on the second 1 :lol:

First one trying for the world record in Bicycle holding and had a heart attack?

Hey in the UK we park in a Garage and drive on a road. The council tends to chase you in a Land Rover if you drive through the Park:)

You are correct! A parachute. You win one of my two most prized D2 items, my 09 bolts of quickness. They fly faster than regular bolts, honest.

Next prize, my treasured .08 topaz! Woohoooo

I believe that it was the sudden stop after a free fall from the plane above, parachute didn't open.

What do butterflies get in their stomach when they fall in love?

How much wood can a woodchuck chuck?

How many polar bears do you need to screw in a light-bulb?

Why do entire bardiches fall out of quill rats?

As for useless facts, I'm perfectly sure that everyone always wanted to know that there are exactly 345.232.345.567.457 grains of sand in the Sahara desert ^_^. Yes, I counted them all, thats why I know.

Not necessarily an ace, but a card! You win. He was killed for cheating at cards. There are 52 cards in a deck and bicycle is a well known brand of cards. The 53rd was the one up his sleeve.

There goes my .08 topaz.......darn.

An archeologist is diggin up in the European mountains, he finds two people frozen in a block of ice, perfectly preserved. He takes one look at them and immediately knows that it's Adam and Eve.....................how?

Another question.............Butch Patrick AKA Eddie Munster also played the lead character on another crazy show, what show and who was he?

1. Dust

2. As much wood as a woodchuck could chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

3. Don't go and count, polor bears don't need lights, it is a trap to generate snacks for polor bears.

4. If you were that little and held something that big inside you, it would pop out if you died. Is the question of how it happens then the answer is Nano-technology.

i hate to be a bum, but the angle at which reflected light in a perfectly spherical raindrop causes a rainbow isn't exactly 42 degrees, its 42.something (has to do with Pi, so the something goes on forever). I've done the calculation before (my day job as an atmospheric dynamicist) so trust me on that one. And the number the world revolves around isn't 42, it's 1.618.... (also goes on forever). It's called Phi... allow me to ellaborate (for those that haven't read "The DaVinci Code," DO SO :D )

The limit of ratios of Fibbanocci numbers = Phi

The ratio of female bees to male bees in any hive = Phi

The ratio of your height to the height to your belly button = PHi

Hip to floor over knee to floor = Phi

it goes on forever...... check it out :D
