1000 facts you probably didn't know...

Hey guys...

I figured this would be fun, we haven't really got anything like this around here. Just post one thing that you think that not many people know... I'll start, to give you an idea. We'll close the thread when we hit 1000 (if ever!).

Not sure how real this one is...

1) By manipulating a few genes of a virus, researchers at MIT have been able to get this virus to grow and assemble itself in such a way that it functions as a battery.

3) The normal Canadian Toonie has one polar bear, three penguins and a T-rex on it when you look at it a certain way ;)

Edit: Tyty has also informed me that there sort of looks like there could be a fish in the polar bear...

Can I do a four? I will anyway and if I can't then someone continue on with four.

4) You're never more than three feet away from a spider (I suppose depending on how cold it is at the time). But in the summer time, beware.

5) Relating back to the one you just said... in London, you're never more than 3 feet away from a rat.

XD

6) A Benelli M4 does not require the replacement of any major parts after 25,000 shots.

7) In the MuchMusic show Video on Trial, after the mock jurors' verdict was to put Paris Hilton's face on a Wikipedia page titled 'Loser', it was actually done by some fans.

Edit: I might as well put in some more...

8. Tim Berners-Lee, creator of the internet, was knighted for his work.

9) A Mossberg 500 shotgun costs $250 USD.

10) A Barrett M82 .50 sniper is not used for general sniping, due to its immense size. Therefore, it is only used for ordinance destruction (shooting mines) and enemies with significant cover.

11) The Lamborghini Reventon is somewhat based on a F-22 Raptor, and the people at Lamborghini motors actually refer to the interior of the Reventon as the 'cockpit'.

Ooo, this'll be fun.

13)Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour.

14)The lion that roars in the MGM logo is named Volney.

15)Bats always turn left when exiting a cave.

16)The plastic things on the end of shoelaces are called aglets.

21) You burn more calories eating a stick of celery than there is in the celery itself...
Not that everyone on a diet should go eating purely celery, that'd get boring after a while and there's unfortunately no nutrition in the nearly calorie free green stick.

24) The average person swallows 8 spiders while they're asleep during their lifetime. YUCK!

25) Apocolocynoposis: the fear of turning into a pumpkin.

26) (people who read Twilight will probably like this) Eurythropoetic protoporphyria: an actual medical disorder that caused the belief in vampires in Transylvania. It's caused by inbreeding (family members making babies--yuck), something that the Transylvanian monarchy used to do all the time. You become pale and sensitive to sunlight, and your teeth seem longer than normal because your gums start to recede. Because people became so pale, doctors thought it was caused by a lack of blood, and a prescribed treatment was to drink the blood of animals. Pretty cool, huh? My English teacher told me that.

Whoa... that's a cool one.

I'm not sure about the reliability of this one, it's just something I heard:

27) If you're left handed, chances are you had a twin once upon a time (i.e. before you were born)

28) Your fingernails are made out of the same stuff that turtle shells are made of ^_^

29) Aibohphobia is a 'joke phobia'. It actually means 'fear of palindromes', in which aibohphobia is a palindrome itself...

30) Another joke phobia is phobophobia, the fear of phobias. o.O

31) A M21 sniper, M40A3 sniper, G3, HK-21, HK-91, SIG Scout and SOCOM-16 all use the same ammo: .308 Win

32) Kirby is considered to be the ultimate character in the Super Smash Bros. series when it comes to edge-guarding, solely due to his ability to cancel his Down + B button move: Stone. However, all of his other advantages tend to be very technical.

33) The main reason the Japanese film Battle Royale was not shown in North America was not because it contained a lot of violence (41 people fighting for survival and against each other on a government-monitored island), but because that the people fighting each other were Grade 9's. The US gov't couldn't censor it due to the 1st Amendment (or something), so most filmmakers just decided to not copy that film directly, but to make a more 'appropriate' version of it. That version of Battle Royale in North America is The Condemned, in which adults are fighting each other for survival, not teens.
