Yeah. Trivia is fun weather it's incedibly useless/dumb or it's very interesting i love it and so should you. Ok, so here we go. I'll start What is the difference between a town and a city?

Spoiler: Show
A twon has a church, a city has a cathedral

I know it's right, don't argue. _______________________________________________________________ There are rumors about Napolean being really short. (like 4 feet something...) Well actually he was normal, what happened was that back then teh french "foot" was longer than our standard foot (12 inches, 30 cm), so it would take less french feet to measure Napolean. Interesting right?! Now post your trivia!!:nodding::nodding:

I am going to have to move this unless there are about five different trivia facts that are related to the entertainment industry. Reason is that this type of thread can be spammed easily...

But i guess this happens to coincide with what you said....becasue it has to do with movies!! The movie Phone Booth was originally though of by Hitchcock but he said that it would be to hard to make and at the same time not get to boring... The movie was also shot in only 7 days.

OK I have some new olnes, you guys get some too!!!

1. McDonald's was the first "restaraunt" to make you pay before you saw the food you were going to eat.

2. When you lift [heavy] weights what's happening is you are actually TEARING your muscles apart, that is why if feels really sore afterwards, it is healing. When it heals it doesn't do it very well and makes it bigger which makes it stronger.

Interesting right? Guys Trivia is the man!

During the filming of Three Kings the cast and crew had to pull George Clooney off of director David Russel because the two hated each other so much.

During the First Gulf War, not one M1A1 Abrams was lost to enemy fire. However, some were hit and destroyed by friendly fire.

Once, a Frenchman decided to attempt the most complex suicide ever. He tied a noose around his neck and attached it to a tree on a seaside cliff. He swallowed the poison, jumped off the cliff, fired a pistol at his head, and set himself on fire. The shot missed and hit the rope, and he fell in between two rocks. This not only put out the fire, but made him regurgetate the poison. He was found and taken to a hospital, were he died of hyperthermia.
