The useless information thread!


Recommended Posts

The Scottish colonists who died at Darien, Panama believed they were going to a carribean paradise, and packed only luxury items. When they arrived in Darien to find an inhospitable jungle, the fact that they had not packed food because they believed food would be abundant meant that they either starved or died of jungle illnesses. A second wave of colonists suffered the same fate.

 

The offer by the English parliament of union with England in exchange for England covering the debts that had bankrupted Scotland because of the failure of the Darien venture contributed to the Act of Union in 1707.

Hawk! Eggplant! AWAKEN!

Not like a dairy farmer?

I was raised by polar bears. I had to fight against blood thirsty wolves and rabid penguins to get my food. Those who were too weak to survive were sent to Sweden.

 

It has made me the man I am today. A man who craves furry hentai.

So let us go and embrace the rustling smells of unseen worlds

I like to call lenin a semi social dictator and stalin a totalitarian.

if you recall, in the other thread, i agreed with both of these statements. if anything, they were probably closer to fascist since the government ran all businesses...

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.

Sushi is rice.

 

Sashami is raw fish

 

(maybe everyone knows tht i dunno, but I didn't till i ate at a sushi restaurant last year) :thumbsup:

 

 

 

 

Actually Sushi means "rice seasoned with sweet vinegar and raw fish"

 

The Japanese have about 6 words for rice that I know of

 

O-kome "uncooked rice"

go-han "cooked rice"

ra-isu "rice on a plate foreigner style"

 

and some others that refer to it being hulled or not.

 

The only reason I know this is because I live here and am often laughed at for using the wrong words for things.

 

 

And..... Did you know that the Giraffe has the name number of neckbones as humans.....seven.

Vin Diesel spelt backwards is "Awesome"
:(
Upon successfully viewing Vin Diesel's anus, one wins thirty dollars in cash. The only drawback is that one must retrieve the thirty dollars from Vin Diesel's anus.

 

Vin Diesel's **** is the source of all life. That is to say, when he ejaculates, he creates a new galaxy. This is how the 'Milky Way' came to be.
:lol::lol::lol:
Vin Diesel inhabits three-fifths of the multiverse
Vin Diesel has beaten Sim City
9/11 wouldn't have happened if Vin Diesel was instead in another dimension fighting a horde of red dragons
Pictures of Vin Diesel were found in the tomb of Tutankhamen in 1922.

 

Gold :geek::lol:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only son, and his son's good buddy, Vin Diesel. Whoeverso believes in his son, and watches Vin Diesel movies, shall not perish, but have eternal life. Whoever forgoes the movies will burn for all eternity. -John 3:16 (more or less)
