Useless Trivia!

Posted 11 June 2009 - 04:22 PM

Time for some pub/bar ammo :D

A galactic year is 250 million Earth-years. This is the time it takes for our solar system to make one revolution around the Milky Way Galaxy.

A jiffy is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second. Thus the saying, I will be there in a jiffy.

Hmmm can't think of anymore right now.

Go!

Getting caught masturbating by a parent can make any man go flaccid in 0.2 seconds.

Scientists have discovered that the feeling experienced when we are tickled causes us to panic and is a natural defense to little creepy crawlers like spiders and bugs. That same ticklish feeling sends us into a state of panic and elicits a response of uncontrollable laughter if a person tickles us.

The worst flavored ice cream is otter.
Infants are born with an accurate sense of interior design. Most of them loose this ability almost instantly.
Half of Hitlers mustache was fake, due to a skin disease that didn't allow for facial hair to grow. The missing portion was painted on daily.

Playing cards were issued to British pilots in WWII. If they were captured, the cards could be soaked in water and unfolded to reveal a map for escape.

Cats have over one hundred vocal sounds, while dogs have only about ten.
