The useless information thread!


Recommended Posts

All my coins (American) clearly state what worth they are - the penny says "one cent", the nickel says "Five cents" and the Quarter says "One Quarter Dollar". I don't have any dimes at the moment. <_<

The ancient Norse used to store cow urine. They waited until it was potent and then they boiled their white clothing in it. They had very white whites.

Some ancient tooth-cleaning remedies involved urine as well.

Yummo.

Lightning can actually enter the human body through the eyes, and a human can be struck and have no burns. Only about 14% of those struck have serious burns. It can take 2 years or more for all of the damage of a lightning strike to show up. Some of the damage that may not immediately show up included areas of necrosis on the internal organs, shorting out of the natural heart pacemaker, and areas of damage in the brain itself.

Marilyn Chambers is the only hardcore porn actress ever to star in a mainstream motion picture, David Cronenberg's "Rabid" from 1977.

? what about traci lords?

 

taks

 

I was thinking that. But didn't wanmt to souind more knowledgeable about porn than the next person.

 

 

Traci Lords has never had a starring role, has she? But my info is probably a bit dated.

If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.

 

Important: as the following sentence contains many naughty words I warn you not to read it under any circumstances; botty, knickers, wee, erogenous zone, psychiatrist, clitoris, stockings, bosom, poetry reading, dentist, fellatio and the department of agriculture.

My bad. It's the terminology that'll screw one up, like if someone says gimme two nickels, some people would prolly be like huh?

 

The thai language doesn't "change" verbs to refer to different tenses, ie. in english the present tense for go is go, past is went, I dunno, I don't remember all those grammatical terms. Anyway, point is, verbs in thai don't change. Also, there's (IIRC) 44 consonants and 36 or 33 vowels. There's also no spaces between words, and there's no periods to mark the end of a sentence.

I guess that one was taken from an old trivia book. Heck, even Annie Sprinkle has been in some non-porno movies. Whether or not they would be considered mainstream I don't know. However, I wouldn't consider Rabid to be any more mainstream that what Sprinkle has been in. EDIT: I just noticed the words "star in".

 

OT - Heres some trivia for you:

 

Oneirogmophobia is the fear of wet dreams.

 

Approximately one out of every two hundred women is born with an extra nipple.

 

According to statistics, Australian women are the most likely to have sex on the first date. (Im going to Australia for vacation based on this fact alone)

 

Dendrophilia is a sexual attraction to trees. (ok, all you plushie wierdos have competition for who is the craziest)

 

Dacryphilia is the arousal from seeing tears in the eyes of a partner.

WHAT A HORRIBLE NIGHT TO HAVE A CURSE.

Nope, I never cheat. I remember that from a documentary about David Cronenberg I saw a while ago.

People laugh when I say that I think a jellyfish is one of the most beautiful things in the world. What they don't understand is, I mean a jellyfish with long, blond hair.

One of seven adult Americans cannot find their country on the world map.

 

I really hope that's a joke!

 

I wouldn't be surprised if it were true...we are a nation of self-styled dumbasses, you know.

 

Useless info...lemme see...

 

The Zerg and Protoss were created by the ancient race of genetic manipulationists, known as Xel'Naga.

 

Marines have 40 health. Zealots have 100, with 60 to their shields. Zerglings have 35 health. It'd take 2-4 marines to take out a single zealot, and 4-6 zerglings.
