The Fact Topic

Since there is a Video topic, a funny picture topic, and a stoners topic, then why can't there be a fact topic? Okay, basically what this topic is for is to post facts about anything. If you have an interesting fact, then post it here and if you can please post the source. In this case, Wikipedia is reliable.

This is just for fun and if it fails then mods, don't hesitate to lock it. This topic is also for people to learn something, whilst staying on the forums.

 

I'll start.

 

A narwhal’s horn is actually its tooth.

I have a Donkey Kong arcade box* in my living room. Right next to it is a little table with an electric tart burner.

 

If the tart burner has been on for awhile and you turn it off, it adds a credit to the Donkey Kong machine just as if you dropped a quarter in it.

 

It's a fact. Ask my wife because it blows her mind too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*Ok, it is a MAME box and not a true dedicated DK machine, but it still runs on quarters and 80% of the time DK is the game loaded.

This works for everybody:

 

Add the year you were born to the age you will be this year (the oldest you will be in this year), and you will all get 2011.

For example, I am 18 this year and was born in 1993. 18+1993=2011

 

I'm sure some of you have heard this, but it tends to amaze a group of people. I guess this is a fact? A math fact. Yeah. cool.gif

And in 2012 if you use the same math, it will add up to 2012. If you used the same math in 1995 it would add up to 1995.

Can we keep this from turning into a Chuck Norris thread? Thanks.

1994 + 16 = 2010

I may be completely missing this, but it isn't really a trick. You're just taking the year you were born, how old you are, and what year it is now. Of course it's going to add up to 2011 because you can't possibly have been born earlier or later than whatever the difference is.

Yeah, I'm not seeing how this is amazing. I have to assume this is some sort of abstract trolling.

If you consume pop rocks and soda you'll have an orgasm that'll equate to the total amount of years you've been alive.

Speaking of facts, here's a few I dug up:

 

• The first automobile accident in the U.S. happened when a car struck a bicyclist in New York in 1896. The driver spent the night in jail, and the cyclist suffered a broken leg.

• Revolving doors were first invented as a way to keep horses out of department stores.

• Whispering instead of talking on cell phones saves significant battery power.

• Jean shorts were invented three weeks prior to the invention of regular jeans.

• On a dare, former President Rutherford B. Hayes declared war on Chile for 17 minutes.

For most people, your non-dominant hand has more squeezing power than your dominant hand. I learned this last week. Left hand 57kg, right hand 52kg.

An electron is the most perfectly spherical thing in the known universe. So perfect, in fact, that if one were to be expanded to the size of the known universe, the margin of error would be less than 1/20th the width of a human hair.

The Earth weighs around 6,588,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 tons.

 

If you fart consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.

 

Mosquito repellents don't repel. They hide you. The spray blocks the mosquito's sensors so they don't know you're there.

 

In 10 minutes, a hurricane releases more energy than all of the world's nuclear weapons combined.

 

Michael Jordan makes more money from Nike annually than all of the Nike factory workers in Malaysia combined.

 

It takes about 20 seconds for a red blood cell to circle the whole body.

 

The matter in the universe is so thinly dispersed that the universe can be compared with a building twenty miles long, twenty miles wide, and twenty miles high, containing only a single grain of sand.

 

One of the stars in the Big Dipper, named Mizar, has another star revolving around it. Each of those two stars have another star revolving around it, and Mizar and it's companion star each have another star revolving around them. So, what looks like a single star is actually 6 stars.

 

Tiger shark embroyos fight each other in their mother's womb. The survivor is born.

 

In the late 19th century, millions of human mummies were used as fuel for locomotives in Egypt where wood and coal was scarce, but mummies were plentiful.
