Just thought I’d make a thread for random facts about random things. For instance:

Dreamt is the only word in the English language that ends with ‘mt’

Cats urine glows under a blacklight

The Ramses brand condom is named after the great phaoroh Ramses II who
fathered over 160 children.

and….

Winston Churchill was born in a ladies toilet during a dance.


Any more for any more?

Rhythm is the only word in the English language without any vowels in it…

Cockcroaches can (supposedly) survive a nuclear blast…

And in reference to thunderstruck’s signature - it isn’t possible to sink in quicksand!

Sorry, stuffed it…it should actually be:

Rhythms is the longest word in the English language without vowels.

(I’m trying to do this from memory when I haven’t actually read the trivia itself in about 10 years!)

Not certain but I’m pretty sure that ALL urine, if not all bodily fluids, glow under a blacklight.

that COWS are 100 times MORE deadly than sharks???


vampire


Every year on Earth about 1,000 people are killed in cattle related incidents…

Whereas only about 10 people die worldwide from shark encounters yearly!!!


So don’t fall for the mass hysteria and hype… You should be more afraid of walking across a pasture then going for a dip in the ocean!!!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

Every year the moon gets 3.8 centimeters (1.5 inches) further away from Earth. It will eventually be lost into space and tides will be a thing of the past.

I’m 35 years old now…

The moon was 4.35 feet closer when I was born… when the moon was first born it was only about 14,000 miles away as compared to the 280,000 miles of today. Imagine how much of the night sky that would’ve have taken up!!!

oh oh
