*jumps into conversation* Did you know that I am very random?

Haha, enough joking around.. Here are some "did you know" facts:


In 2001, total meat consumption (red meat, poultry, and fish) amounted to 194 pounds per person, 16 pounds above the level in 1970. Each American consumed an average of 21 pounds less red meat (mostly less beef) than in 1970, 34 pounds more poultry, and 3.4 pounds more fish.' -- www.fun-facts.com

I am a vegetarian, so maybe I am the few who makes the meat consumption average go down.. Silenced

Did you know that English doesn't have to be read or written from left to right. It just is.
So are all the letters/numbers..I mean, "O" can be switched to be pronounced as "A" and "A" as "O". It'll just take a VERY long time to get used to.. (8

Did you know that.. Vikings used the skulls of their enemies as drinking vessels? That's just eww..


Okay, enough facts from me now.. Very Happy

1. Can you show me the physics or the maths behind this statement?
2. Can you give me a bible reference where it unequivocally says "The Sun orbits the Earth"?
( A mention of the sun standing still in the sky is not sufficient as that can be interpreted both ways)

The sound of E.T. walking was made by someone squishing her hands in jelly.

The human heart creates enough pressure to squirt blood 30 feet (9 m).

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.

Actually, this is not true. Actually, the opossum has only one penis, but it's bifurcated.

Here are just a load of facts i found on the internet:

-In England the Speaker of the House is not allowed to speak.
-All of the clocks in Pulp Fiction are stuck on 4:20.
-Al Capone's business card said he was a used furniture dealer.
-There are, on average, 259 raisins in a box of Raisin Bran and 388 in a box of Premium Raisin Bran.
-There is no ice covering Iceland.
-The swastika was origionaly a symbol of peace and honor and is still used by Buddhists today.
-Peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite.
-The average person's left hand does 56% of the typing.
-In most advertisements, the time displayed on a watch is 10:10.

In all honesty none of them are that interesting, but you could have learnt something in the time it has taken you to read this post.

Oh man, thank goodness. XD I heard that as twelve spiders from my sister's science teacher some years ago, and I've sadly, but adamantly, attempt to sleep with my mouth closed. It doesn't always work, however.

As for a did-you-know fact - did you know that the oldest goldfish lived to be about forty years of age? I remember reading that in the Guinness Book of World Records and hearing that on the television on this kid's show I watched.
