Hey guys! Gevok here :)

Here's the thing: post your fun fact, or amazing fact, or disgusting, whatever fact you want! It's ya'lls thread.

I'll start off with two:

-It's illegal to throw a moose out of a moving airplane at 20,000 feet in the air in Alaska. -Microsoft presentations are ran by Apple computers. --------------------- -Odontophobia is the fear of teeth. -Elephants are the only mammals that can't jump. -Canadian researchers have found that Einstein's brain was 15% wider than normal. -The United States has never lost a war... in which mules were used.*** -The Neanderthal's brain was bigger than yours is.*** -The largest number of children born to one woman is recorded at 69. From 1725-1765, a Russian peasant woman gave birth to 16 sets of twins, 7 sets of triplets, and 4 sets of quadruplets. -On average, there are 178 sesame seeds on each McDonalds BigMac bun. -Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair. -Neanderthal's went extinct because there weren't enough women.*** -The Titanic was carrying 4,000 tons of ham when she sank. -Only 55% of Americans know that the Sun is a star.*** -Ostriches keep cool by urinating on their legs. -Bees make psychodelic honey, if they gather nectar from Deadly Nightshades. -Ringo Starr was born during a German air raid. -John Rockefeller is the richest person to have lived, as far as has been recorded. -You can tell the temperature of the air by counting the number of strokes a cricket does in one "burst". - The very first bomb dropped by the Allies on Berlin during World War II killed the only elephant in the Berlin Zoo. - Greenland is mostly covered with Ice while Iceland has a fair amount of greenery (plants) - Why do we have to pay a toll on freeways? - Why are boxing rings square? - What on earth is a free gift? Aren't all gifts free? - If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days, you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee. - All Philippine Presidents have the letter "O" somewhere in their names. - A cockroach will live nine days without it's head, before it starves to death. - 25% of a human's bones are in its feet. - Mexico and Ireland have the highest per capita consumption of Coca-Cola. -The only letter not appearing on the Periodic Table is the letter “J”.

Anyone that does not know this should be thrown into the sun.

Neanderthal's went extinct because there weren't enough women.

We don't actually know why they went extinct for sure. The size of their brain is also in question, though it was fairly close to human size, one way or the other. I'm also in doubt about the Sun one. I'd like to see a source for that.

I use to be full of useless information but I can't really think of anything right now. I'm sure I'll think of something later.

Trees do make sounds when they fall in the forest and nobody is around.

Here's a couple:

- The very first bomb dropped by the Allies on Berlin during World War II killed the only elephant in the Berlin Zoo. - Greenland is mostly covered with Ice while Iceland has a fair amount of greenery (plants) - Why do we have to pay a toll on freeways? - Why are boxing rings square? - What on earth is a free gift? Aren't all gifts free? - If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days, you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee. - All Philippine Presidents have the letter "O" somewhere in their names. - A cockroach will live nine days without it's head, before it starves to death.

I lol'd.

- Why do we have to pay a toll on freeways?

You don't. That's why a freeway is called a freeway, it's free(ok, thats not actually why we started calling them freeways, but that is what the termhas come to mean.) If you are paying to get on it's called a tollway, toll road, or turnpike. You can also technically call them a highway if they are a major road.
