Just a quick note...

639. You can't fold paper more than seven times.


Um...yes, you can. It's called origami. Unless you're talking about a specific kind of paper, like paper money, but that you can fold something like 1,000 times before it tears. (That is, the Canadian and American bills.)

640. The names of the continents end with the same letters as the first.


And what about North America and South America? They are considered separate continents, you know.

What kind of paper do you mean, though? Regular A4 printer paper?

I meant like a a sheet a paper folded in half and continued to be folded in half. (It made sense in my head....) And by continents I referred both North and South America as whole, which is America. Not by separate names.

Yes, but there's different types of paper and they all have a different resistance to folding. A regular sheet of white 8x11 printer paper can only be folded 7 times, maybe, but construction paper can be folded even fewer times, while tissue paper and origami paper can be folded more.

And like I said, North and South America are considered separate continents.

...ehh, you know what, I'm going to stop arguing about this and leave. This is getting rather silly.

642. The first race car could go a top speed of 24km/hr. What a rush -_-
We all have a dark side...

Spoiler:
That awkward moment when someone says "hi" to you, and you reply with "I'm good"... -_-

That shite moment in an argument when you realise you are wrong...

That awesome moment when the teacher asks you a question, thinking you weren't being attentive. Then you answer it right, it's like "What now! WIN!!!"

That depressing moment when your mum scribbles on the award your school gave you in congratulations for all your hard work, just to get her stupid pen to work D':


But you love me XD

More people use Blue toothbrushes than red ones
I sat down and tried to write a story.

"Ian MacArthur is a wonderful sweet fellow who wears glasses and peers out of them with delight."

That was the first sentence. The problem was that I just couldn't think of the next one. After cleaning my room three times, I decided to leave Ian alone for a while because I was starting to get mad at him.

644. Double Falsehood is actually written by Shakespeare, and the first production of it after that was discovered was at the Shakespeare in the Park festival in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. (I should have gone...)

646: A few days ago was the date Marty McFly traveled to in Back to the Future.
Don't blink.

"People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint it's more of a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey.... Stuff."

I have a lot of fandoms.
Spoiler:
Doctor Who, Artemis Fowl, Harry Potter, Elementary, Torchwood, Starkid, and Homestuck are some of them.

647) auburn hair is more often than not mistaken for ginger.
(I learnt this the hard way)
This is to be our final transmission
The rebels have defeated our illustrious armies
They have damaged our intention of ugly and defiant malevolence
All that we love and care for will sink
Into the abyss of a new dark age
Made more sinister
And perhaps more protracted
By the light of perverted science and rebellion
The whole root and heavy core
Will perish in starving captivity
You will never win your freedom
You cannot escape... F.E.A.R.

648) When boys get to the age where they start to have feelings about girls they don't know what to do with the new emotion so tend to bully the girl they feel attracted to. :loveeyes:
