Maybe a nice idea for a thread - flood the forum with trivia and impress us with your useless knowledge.

Did you know that in 2006 it's twenty years ago that the first computervirus appeared publicly? It was made in Pakistan and it was called Pakistani Brain.

In 2003 a virus called Blaster caused 2 to 10 billion dollar damage... Shocked

(and you wanted us to believe that robot-story, right?)

Did you know that the Eisenhower interstate system requires that one mile in every five must be straight? These straight sections are usable as airstrips in times of war or other emergencies.

Did you know that more people die from dogs and cats than from sharks?

I knew that, actually. Hippos scare me really bad! They can bite crocs in half!

Throughtout the Alien Quadrilogy, and AvP, the people kept calling the Queen "Bitch". While they called the Drones "Son of a bitch" several times.

There's a small town near my city where I used to go to school. In one of the fields near it is a tree that has been there since the Eighty Years' War.

How long did the Eighty Years War last?

------------------------

Did you know that sharks think humans taste nasty, and they almost never bite twice? They usually just spit out the one bite they took, and then swim away and sulk.

So all those things you see in movies and on TV about sharks killing multiple people are totally bogus.

The rare times that multiple people die from shark attacks only happen when there are multiple sharks. This did happen a couple of times during WWII.

------------------------

Did you know that there are 10 letters and one punctuation mark in the sentence "Did you know?"?

I knew the shark stuff already.

Did you know that the author of Jaws (forgot his name ><) said he would never have written the book if he knew how great whites really behave?

Did you know that the Pirates of the Caribbean is a trilogy? The next movie is going to be the last. And that it's likely going to be called: Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End

They are filming it now, and Keith Richards is going to be in it.

If you go to steal from a store, the shopkeep/clerk/employees have no right to hold you there on suspicion of theft. They can call the real cops, but by that time you'll have gone home and will have had time to hide/unpack whatever it is you stole.

In what jurisdiction?

I ask merely for information. I am the guy who goes back in and tells them, "Hey, you didn't charge me for this, I need to pay."



Oh, Munan, on that phone number/judgement thingy: Is it only the phone number you have when you die? Or your most/least heavenly phone number you have ever had? Or all your phone numbers? I need to know, 'cause I have had like 30 different phone numbers.

Not true in my neck of the woods. I worked for Tower Records about thirteen years ago, and they had plain clothes loss prevention guys who would just kind of hang out on the floor like customers. They were employees of Tower but subcontracted from a private security company. If you tried to steal something, they had every right to handcuff you and hold you until the police showed up so they could press charges for theft. They would straight up tackle someone if they had to.

Same with Borders. As of six months ago, one of my current coworkers worked there, and he was just telling us today about some asshat who got caught by their in-store loss prevention guys and suffered physically for his asshattery.

female ligers (lion/tiger hybrids) are the only animal hybrid found to be consistently fertile.

I'm not sure where I heard that. I tested it out once and got a slightly different result.

In here the store clerks not only lack the right, but also the motivation to stop you from leaving with their shit.

Either that, or they're just blind. It was pretty clear that I tossed the thing above the sensors, which are right next to the cash register.

Either way, if you're in the neighbourhood, give me a call. I know a few places if you wanna save your money.

There may be another War coming up. Courtesey of North Korea. I hope this doesn't get out of hand.

Creative and apple are now sueing each other, saying the other stole thier ideas.

If either wins that means the one who loses probably won't be able to sell thier MP3 player in North America.

Go Creative.

Also did you know that Ikea is worth mroe than either Microsoft or Walmart?

One time, I was walking through IKEA, where - for some reason - they have swedish books standing around everywhere. I saw a book I would like to have and asked an employee if I could buy that as well. He said that, no, you could not buy the books, but that he would turn around so that I could put it in my bag...

@Complexnumbers: that information is, unfortunately, not given.

Did you know that when somebody is walking next to a horse (holding him) he should be walking on the road, and not on the pavement (in the netherlands) because he is seen as a driver

Did you know that "orange" is the only word in the English language that does not rhyme with any other word?

Did you know that the longest English word in pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis? It's a resperatory condition caused by breathing in volcanic ash after a pyroclastic eruption.

Rubbish, you just aint trin hard enough. Arrange rhymes with orange, sort of.

Did you know that over 90% of carbon emissions occur naturally, and that mankind only produces a few % of the stuff everyyear. So infact, mother nature is killing the planet with all her animals, volcanoes and plants (which release co2 at night).
