Interesting but what is your reference source? President Andrew Jackson's funeral in 184? I don't think so.

Sorry i missed out 5. supposed to be 1845..

i must say u got very good eye.

Interesting things.

You're probably going to get crap about this besides me, but you have to quote things instead of copying and pasting.
not good to state information with absolutely no references. Don't understand what one bit of information leads into another piece of information that you wrote. I can only see this thread get into a list of "did you know" type lists. Not that it would be bad because I manage to hold alot of useless information myself. :twisted:
What is this


> The average weight of whale is 7.8kg. A human is 1.4 kg.

1.4 kg? As in a human's weight? Or do you mean a baby's?
This thread = Crap

Some items are quite thought-provoking. I'd never realised that cats always washed themselves after eating (or why). A few other things made me think.

This sort of thread is always interesting to read while Server 2 Apache restarts.
Sources, or it didn't happen.
Well, I suppose this was supposed to be an addition to the "DID YOU KNOW" facts thread, which was quite recently locked.
Anyway, since this one breaks the rules of copy-pasting and stuff, I'm inclined to close this one as well
