the "Did you know" thread

an official reason to post useless information,

if it is worth knowing then ... you will have to be spanked with a wet shoe.

Did you know....that Hawii is the leading producer of Macadamia nuts??

did you know you have a hole in your heart when you're still in the mother's womb, and normally it goes away when you're born

Could we get a government grant and look into this paper folding thing a little further? Say a 10 year study? :p *goes to look for lab coat*

I can't think of a useless fact right now, having my first cup of coffee.

Well, Dave, you of all people should know that checking these kind of facts is in human nature ... the moment I saw it I tried it out ... not that I will take it further and look for little holes in the unborn baby's heart or anything!

You're right, DD. I always like to analyze situations way past the time most people don't care anymore. That's just when the big breakthrough is about to occur.

I think there is a ton of useful information hiding in our song title thread for example.

The paper folding thing reminds me about the "common knowledge" that you can't crush an egg in your hand if you apply even pressure. Get your mom's permission before trying this one, kids! :D

If you need to make sure your hands are really clean and you do not have alcohol-based hand rub, use soap and warm water. To make sure you wash them long enough, sing the song "Happy Birthday" twice in it's entirety. If you do not like that song, time it, and find something else that lasts as long.
 
DON'T waste money on expensive iPods. Simply think of your favourite
tune and hum it. If you want to "switch tracks", simply think of
another song you like and hum that instead.

CINEMA goers. Please have consideration for pirate DVD viewers by
having a p*ss before the film starts.

RAPPERS. Avoid having to say 'know what I'm sayin' all the time by
actually speaking clearly in the first place.

DON'T waste money on expensive paper shredders to avoid having your
identity stolen. Simply place a few dog turds in the bin bags along
with your old bank statements.

RED WINE DRINKERS Worried that your teeth will be stained after a
heavy night of drinking red wine? Simply drink a bottle of white wine
before going to bed to remove the stains.

SOLDIERS Invest in a digital camera to avoid all that court martial
tomfoolery after a trip to Trueprint.

MURDERERS Need to dispose of a body? Simply parcel it up and post it
to yourself via DHL. You will never see it again.

BURGLARS. When fleeing from the police, run with your right arm
sticking Out at 90 degrees, wrapped in a baby mattress in case they
set one of their dogs on you.

EMPLOYERS Avoid hiring unlucky people by immediately tossing half the
CVs into the bin.

MEN When listening to your favourite CD, simply turn up the sound to
the volume you desire; then turn it down three notches. This will save
your wife from having to do it.

GAMBLERS. For a new gambling opportunity, try sending £50 to yourself
by Royal Mail.

BANGING two pistachio nutshells together gives the impression that a
very small horse is approaching.

BLIND PEOPLE Give yourself at least a chance of seeing something by
not wearing heavy dark glasses all the time.

ALCOHOL makes an ideal substitute for happiness.

DRIVERS. If a car breaks down or stalls in front of you, beep your
horn and wave your arms frantically. This should help the car start
and send them on their way.

PREVENT burglars stealing everything in the house by simply moving
everything in the house into your bedroom when you go to bed. In the
morning, simply move it all back again.

CAR thieves Don't be discouraged when nothing is on view. All the
valuables may be hidden in the glove box or under a seat.

MOTORISTS Avoid getting prosecuted for using your phone whilst
driving. Simply pop your mobile inside a large shell and the police
will think you are listening to the sea.

JEREMY Beadle When selling DVDs on your TV advert, hold the disks in
your bigger hand so that they do not appear to be the size of laser
disks.

SHOES last twice as long if only worn every other day.

SINGLE men Convince people that you have a girlfriend by standing
outside Etam with several bags of shopping, looking at your watch and
occasionally glancing inside.

BOIL an egg to perfection without costly egg timers by popping the egg
into boiling water and driving away from your home at exactly 60 mph.
After 3 miles, phone your wife and tell her to take the egg out the
pan.

ALCOHOLICS don't worry where the next drink is coming from. Go to the
pub, where a large selection is available at retail prices.

McDONALD'S Make your brown carrier bags green in colour so they blend
in with the countryside after they've been thrown out of car windows. .

erm.... people might know this, cats have whiskers so they can judge spaces. A couple I lived with has this really thick cat called Wallace, and he walked nto a candle and burnt the eyebrow and whiskers on one side of his face (he wasn't hurt, don't worry!) and he couldn't work out whether he could fit into things for ages! Bless!
