There is more technology in the modern smartphone than was used to land astronauts on the Moon.

Snow Leopards are not related to Leopards at all, they are more closely related to Jaguars or Lions.

Much of everyday English language is based on Scandinavian words originally used by the Vikings.

On one occasion after a filming session of the original Star Wars Trilogy everyone else walked off set leaving English actor Kenny baker who played R2-D2 still encased in his droid shell.

There is a species of moth, Mabra elephantophila, that gains most of its sustenance from the tears of elephants.
The fangs of the funnel web spider can penetrate human fingernails.
There is a species of carpenter ant that can self-destruct in a poisonous explosion.

There is a species of bee that gets drunk. Not only this, but the members of its own hive consider this to be worthy of eating any offender's legs. The first time.

The second time...... they ain't so lucky.


Just figured that while we were listing disgusting bug facts.....




On a completely unrelated note, Animal Planet has lost 1 viewer recently.

Random fact that i have discovered : Some folks tend to be so lazy that they would rather stop or not do something as the case may be than take a recommended course of action

When breeding pokemon in X and Y, you have just about double the chance of getting 6 perfect IV's if you use two pokemon with different IV's (I've only tested this while starting with 5 perfect IV parents)
EX: A pokemon with an imperfect attack, and one with an imperfect defense will yield a perfect pokemon (1.09 %) twice as much as two pokemon with imperfect attack (.63 %).

However, if you are looking for a specific set of IV's it is doubly effective to use two pokemon with the same IV's (22.5 % compared to 10.78 %).
(Again tested only with 5 perfect IV parents, this one was obvious, but I felt I'd share it too)

Facts about Hitler and sex!*
Of the six women Hitler is believed to have slept with, four ended up committing suicide.
One of these was his half-niece.
Hitler didn't marry Eva Braun until just 40 hours before they committed suicide.

The truth resists simplicity

*Or at least marriage.

I've edited the op over in my thread exactly 115 times.

Your fingernails appear to grow after death when it's really your skin receding.
This led support hundreds of years ago to the vampire theory.

Tin Foil can cause a lightning storm in a microwave.

If you take a 2, and a backwards 2, and put them together, it kind of looks like a fish.

The rate at which people go missing, as in flat out disappear, is roughly equivalent to the rate at which herd animals in Africa are killed by large predators.

Hey. Bigfoot is real. In fact, it's not just one thing. It's an entire species we have sightings of occasionally.

Whether or not I believe in Bigfoot has no impact on the joke.

Would love to see the math on this.

You'd have to ask Jim Butcher where he got the math from, however it is ignoring the fact that most of those people are ultimately located.

An adult human contains about 110,000 calories.
A creature of Godzilla's size would require around 215,000,000 calories a day.
If Godzilla sustained himself off of human flesh alone, he would increase the global mortality rate by more than a full percentage point.
I am now picturing a nightmare world ruled by kaiju. It is truly terrifying.

The defibrillator predates CPR.
Squirrels can rotate their back feet 180 degrees to better climb down trees.
Apples were first cultivated in eastern Turkey.
The "fruit of knowledge" in the bible was probably not an apple. Apple was used as a generic term for fruit.
Judas' thirty pieces of silver shouldn't be taken literally either. Thirty silver coins was the standard fare for a returned slave, so "thirty pieces of silver" was most likely a turn of phrase.
