Hilarious, dumb, or very unknown facts!
« on: July 04, 2015, 08:36:40 pm »
A'ight Furs!

I have been recently told that I know WAY too many useless and dumb facts. (Which is absolutely 1000% true) So, This is my chance to shine!

Here are the rules:

1. The fact obviously should be appropriate to the corresponding furtopia rules
2. The fact must be either really pointless, really dumb, really unknown, or really funny (or all of them)
3. You must list only 10 maximum, no more, no less. This has to be fair so you don't hog all of the facts
*Facts can only appear only once, no repeating, or similar facts.

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!!! *WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF!!!*

Here are mine:
1. Every year, an average of about 3 people die putting their pants on.
2. Trombones are the only instrument with a slide(not including tuning slides)
3. There are more than 5 basic sexual orientations (Not counting intersex) (Ex. Straight, Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender are the basic ones) Though, there is one more. Which, is Asexuality, which means the people who are asexual aren't sexually attracted to anyone or anything, and are happy alone. Bonus: Asexuality affects only 1% of the population, and I am an asexual also! Yay me!
4.It is illegal to eat oranges while bathing in California.
5. The buzz from an electric razor in America plays in the key of B flat; Key of G in England.
6. In Japan, Ronald McDonald is called Donald McDonald due to a lack of a clear "r" sound in Japanese.

7. If you have a pizza with radius Z and thickness A, its volume is =
Pi*Z*Z*A

8.There is a Youtube channel that is -entirely centered- around cutting fruits and vegetables in half only using a spoon (check it out (intro video ---> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcHl3AE25Ds --->
Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC__OgYVhZ_7EML1b5RBxADA
Funny example video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKMhIY2hx3Y

9. The average person spends about two years on the phone in a lifetime.
10. Ten percent of the Russian government's income comes from the sale of vodka.


And there we have it! Get typing on your lists!

The long underwear suit, or union suit, was first worn by women and originally called an "emancipation suit". The trap door, or seat flap, for answering the call of nature is also known as a "fireman's flap".  Some suits may only possess a criss-cross crotch arrangement. Variations of the classic underwear can still be found today.

Cedar Springs, MI--once known for red flannel underwear, holds a red flannel festival each year. Patrons are advised to wear something red to avoid arrest by the "Keystone Kops".

The very first Playtex "Cross-Your-Heart" bra was actually modelled by a man in the television ad.

A man sized ant could carry 4 tons over it's head while running 52 mph.

The same ant would quickly die due to it's inability to absorb enough oxygen from the air.

That's the weight of my Chevy Suburban with a few passengers, running at near highway speeds. :D

The typical clown/circus theme is actually a military march called "Entrance of the Gladiators" and was written in 1897

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entrance_of_the_Gladiators

It's so wacky to think what we now relate nonsense and clowns to a song with such an impressive name. :D

Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin actually ejected from his space capsule moments before touchdown. Under FAI rules, this constitutes a failure, so the Soviets concealed this feature from the West for almost 50 years.

There are 37 million Mosin Nagant rifles ever made. During WW2 the U.S manufactured enough ammo to kill the Earth's population 7 times over.

Flies are attracted to the color yellow.

Cockroaches do not like walking on artificial materials.

The preying mantis is the only insect that can look over it's shoulders.

There exists a jellyfish in the world that only lives in one perticular volcanic lake, it also only requires water and sunlight to survive due to algae living in it's skin, and has lost the ability to sting things.

The word 'the' is the most commonly used word in every language.

The color orange was named after the fruit. Before that it was known as red brown.

Toilets cause over 2000 times more injuries than sharks annually on average.

There exists an idea that suggests why we haven't come across intelligent life outside our planet, stating that for it to exist much time must pass in correct environments and increase the likelihood of a catastrophic event, thus destroying it. It's called the Filter theory and we're not sure if we have yet to pass through it.

Scientists have invented a new shade of black that reflects less than  0.05% of light, making it the darkest object created.

If a black hole the same mass of our sun replaced said sun,other than the loss of heat and light, wich would probably kill us, nothing else would change.

The 7.62x54r is one of the few smokeless powder cartridges that has close to 120 years of service. It is still used today, originating in the late 1800s.(That's pretty amazing despite how old the round is, that it's still in use.)

A car is 28 times more likely to kill you than any firearm.

There have been more selfie-related deaths this year than shark-related deaths. The ratio is 12:8.

The character ALF in the television series was originally a small person in a fursuit, but later was supplanted by a puppet.

The creator of Super Mario Bros (Shigeru Miyamoto) is valued so much by Nintendo that he's not allowed to bike to work.

An elephant will go out of its way to avoid stepping on a mouse.

51% of people think that stormy weather affects cloud computing.

There is no Japanese word for "knife", so they use the English word.

Velociraptors were actually about the size of chickens, not large like they are in movies.

Microraptor is the only known vertebrate with four wings.

Hummingbirds can fly backward--no other bird can do this. They also have the highest metabolic rate of all birds, and must eat at least twice their body weight each day to survive.

Jurassic Park's dinosaurs were originally created as miniature models, much like the model spaceships used in Star Wars: A New Hope. The Stan Winston dinosaur models replaced these animatics. Later on the dinosaur animation team was put in charge of the CGI for the movie.

The paleontologist Jack Horner was the consulting paleontologist for all the films in the Jurassic Park franchise. His debate with paleontologist Bob Bakker over Tyrannosaurus rex being a scavenger versus a predator led to Bakker's look-alike in the film Jurassic Park: The Lost World.

Bob Bakker wrote and illustrated Raptor Red, a novel about Utahraptor.
