Interesting Fun Facts

Post by Dazzler on Mon Sep 20, 2010 5:04 pm

I was looking around the net and I realized that sharing fun facts can be very informative and interesting at the same time. Why don't we start one here Very Happy . Share any fun facts you know and get us all informed. Let me start:

  • Did you know that Hawaii is moving toward Japan 4 inches every year?

  • Did you know that flea's can jump 130 times higher than their own height. In human terms this is equal to a 6ft. person jumping 780 ft. into the air?

  • Did you know that no matter its size or thickness, no piece of paper can be folded in half more than 7 times.?

  • Did you know that it's impossible to sneeze with your eyes open?

  • Did you know that everyone's tongue print is different?

  • Did you know that seventy percent of the dust in your home consists of shed human skin?

my turn then. Smile

i've been looking for this thread.

In the 1400's a law was set forth in England that a man was allowed to beat his wife with a stick no thicker than his thumb. Hence we have 'the rule of
thumb'
-------------------------------------------
Many years ago in Scotland , a new game was invented. It was ruled 'Gentlemen Only...Ladies Forbidden'....and thus, the word GOLF entered
into the English language.
-------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------
Every day more money is printed for Monopoly than the U.S. Treasury.
-------------------------------------------
Men can read smaller print than women can; women can hear better.
-------------------------------------------
It is impossible to lick your elbow.
-------------------------------------------
The State with the highest percentage of people who walk to work:
Alaska
-------------------------------------------
The first novel ever written on a typewriter, Tom Sawyer..
----------------------------------------------------------
111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321
----------------------------------------------------------
Q. Half of all Americans live within 50 miles of what?
A. Their birthplace
----------------------------------------------------------
In Shakespeare's time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes. When you pulled on the ropes, the mattress tightened, making the bed firmer to sleep
on. Hence the phrase...'Goodnight, sleep tight'
----------------------------------------------------------
It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the
mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month, which we know today as the
honeymoon.
----------------------------------------------------------
In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts... So in old England , when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them 'Mind your pints
and quarts, and settle down.'
It's where we get the phrase 'mind your P's and Q's'
----------------------------------------------------------
Many years ago in England , pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim, or handle, of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill, they used the
whistle to get some service. 'Wet your whistle' is the phrase inspired by this practice.
----------------------------------------------------------
At least 75% of people who read this will try to lick their elbow!
----------------------------------------------------------

Hahahaha! These fun facts are really really interesting and educational and so true. I did try to lick my elbow lol!

My turn now:

Every time you sneeze some of your brain cells die.

When hippos are upset, their sweat turns red.

The sound you hear when you crack your knuckles is actually the sound of nitrogen gas bubbles bursting.

Human hair and fingernails continue to grow after death.

The only part of the body that has no blood supply is the cornea in the eye. It takes in oxygen directly from the air.

Colgate faced big obstacle marketing toothpaste in Spanish speaking countries. Colgate translates into the command “go hang yourself.”

The human heart creates enough pressure while pumping to squirt blood 30 feet!!

Not too much of a fun fact, but in my opinion, it's a fact: school sucks.
