Random fun-fact thread!


(JonasK) #1

Fun-facts are one of the bigger obsessions I have in my life. I really like knowing stuff, but only if it’s interesting or ironic (and therefore also interesting).

This thread will be for sharing of random fun-facts you know. Let’s keep it to one fact per post, add meat to fact-bone if you’d like to though.

Starting off:

There’s a thing called “The Gamer’s mark” which is a biological mark on the mouse hand of most avid PC gamers. It is quite common for PC to use the bone on the “border” between the hand and the wrist as a pivotal point when controlling the mouse. As a result of this, a callous starts to develop in the area. This is in many ways similar to the mark us yoyoers get on our middle fingers.

Skiing Fact:

Most ski injuries occur on the last run.

DUH! If you are injured badly enough it’s your last run, doesn’t matter if it’s the first of the day or the end of the day!

Jimi Hendrix was in the 101th Air Borne division in the United State Army. (The division shown in HBO’s and the History Channel’s Band of Brothers, although Hendrix joined some 20 years later)

After getting into trouble with the law he had the choice of joining the Army or going to prison. So before he played guitar with his teeth he jumped from airplanes!

WRONG. It depends how I feel.

Clinton Jackson is a funny guy.

It’s a fact, and it’s fun for me.

Actually it is indeed correct. If you put your left shoe on first(as in your left side/directiaon) then your right, your right shoe becomes the only shoe left(as in evefrything else is gone)

For real though, there is a man who can communicate with the outside world during his dreams through morse code with his eyes twitching.

Also, isn’t it WEIRD that you always find an object in the last place you look for it?

Some sweet response here!

The most dangerous height of which you can throw a cat out of the window is 5 floors high. When you get above 7 floors it gets a lot safer. The reason for it becoming safer above the 7th floor is because cats will spread their body in a parachute form much like squirrels do. From the 5th floor, a cat will reach critical speed while not having time to parachute.

Please do not try to prove this by throwing your cat out of windows. There are variables in here and while throwing your cat out from the 7th is safer than the 5th, there’s no guarantee that your cat will survive.

Donald Duncan, of Duncan Yo-Yo fame, was also responsible marketing the first parking meters.

A recording of a camel’s moan was slowed down and used as the sound of a tornado in the movie,‘Twister’. Thats weird.

horrible artist and dancer

A South Korean fast food chain became the first business to open a restaurant in the North. This happened a few months ago and made me feel good.

Spartans would paint their feet red in order to keep themselves calm when walking through a bloody field; even they freaked out when they walked in blood.
