cmon man really? I mean like "#75 The average person makes 1,140 phone calls per year." hows that even worth being called a "random fact" I know no one that makes that many calls, I've made 50 calls this year TOPS. Several more "random facts" on that lists that's just not worth mentioning but then again people posting random **** not even reading what you post and the result is probably not gonna be worth reading anyways..


My wife does 9 calls per day as an average, that means almost 3500 calls per year. I'm really sad because of that and really thankful that unlimited plans for phone calls exist.

Spoiler


Some texts are just annoying.

I put a spoiler block on Mjack33's huge list.

Any time your post takes a number of mouse scrolls in the double digits to get past, you may want to consider being courteous enough to spoiler it. I know we've discussed their previously when you linked 30 images in the same post in another thread, so once again I stress: please be aware of your post length in the future. It took me 14 full mouse wheel scrolls to go from the top of your post to the bottom, and I use a 40" screen, I can only imagine it was even more of a nuisance for those on small screens especially laptops. A spoiler block can easily be added in few clicks, especially since it was a copy/paste text, you could click the button for the sblock tags then paste the desire wall of text in between them.

Keep that in mind in the future please.

Scrolls are for wizards son.

Fact : When activating a spell on a scroll, the spell must be of the correct type (arcane or divine) for the class using it. Arcane spellcasters (wizards, sorcerers, and bards) can only use scrolls containing arcane spells, and divine spellcasters (clerics, druids, paladins, and rangers) can only use scrolls containing divine spells.

Yay somebody else reads EGS!

Fact- The word "grape" evolved from the name of a piercing weapon that was later repurposed for harvesting fruit. The word "grapple" shares this origin.

Fact- The majority of America's vegetarians are female.

Fact : You can play D&D without being the DM.
Fact: You can find D&D games very easily both online and offline, especially if you're looking to DM as finding one tends to be the more difficult part.

I like data. *shrug* It also helps put some perspective on why the sblock was justified.

No I get that still cant help to be amazed that you thought of it, I would probably just settle with "it was over the top long" and not think twice about the sblock. So you counting the scrolls to make your point is what I would call a damn good customer support lmao.

Ulysses S. Grant smoked a ton of cigars — at least 20 a day. After a great military victory at the Battle of Shiloh, citizens sent him more than 10,000 boxes of cigars as gratitude. He died of throat cancer in 1885.

President William McKinley loved carnations and wore them as a good luck charm. While attending the Pan-American Exposition on September 6, 1901, he greeted a line of people. McKinley pulled his famous red carnation from his lapel and gave it to a little girl waiting in line. In the next few moments Leon Czolgosz would shoot the president twice in the torso with a revolved he had concealed beneath a handkerchief. McKinley died eight days later.

US president Lyndon Johnson had so many lovers that people in the White House referred to them as his "harem". He had eight private secretaries. They were not ugly.

Lyndon Johnson also brought the brand Haynes into the forefront as it was the brand of trousers he chose because they would "let out" his midspace as needed in order to not have the pants 'get all up in my bung hole'.
