Useless information that you will never use

The name of all the continents ends with the same letter that they start with.

 

Did you miss one (Oceania--often incorrectly called Australia, which references a single country, not a continent)?

Also, another useless fact (or however many come out in this post):

  • The symbol that a lot of people use in place of the word 'and' is called the ampersand (&).
  • There exists a punctuation mark that is a cross between a question mark and exclamation mark: the interrobang ().
  • The term for any punctuation that marks the end of a sentence (period, question mark, exclamation point, etc.) is called a full stop.
  • Antarctica is actually comprised of several islands that happen to be covered by a giant ice shelf, and the South Pole happens to be directly above water, not land covered by a mile-thick layer of ice.

But they can drive cars

Not only did they drive, but all 14 of of the males accurately drove to the destination.

 

This begs the question - did all the females fail the test ? post-8751-0-39387000-1372276961.gif

 

It is a little funny how that happened (and scary...PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, DO NOT INSTALL ONE OF THOSE BALLS IN YOUR CAR!...please excuse my caps lock there ;)--I meant it playfully). Question is: how long will it be until someone gets the brainy idea of putting the aroma right in front of the ball itself and mass markets something designed around that? :blink:

Fun fact: If you put your ear up against a stranger's leg, you can hear them say "what the heck are you doing!?"

There are so few sensory nerves in the skin of your elbow that it hardly registers pain. Try pinching it, not too hard. Doesn't hurt, eh?

 

Note: Do not try this with a stranger's elbow.
