    Yeah as the title says, I'm starting this thread for all of us to share the most interesting things we know with each other. This way, we'll not only enjoy, but will also learn a lot :)
    That is "Learn by enjoying" :p
    I know there are resources over the internet to seek info, but am still unable to go through all millions of them.

    SO HERE IS THE FIRST SET FROM MY SIDE :cool:

    1.The average person walks the equivalent of twice around the world in a lifetime!

    2.The most difficult item for a sewerage plant to process is pubic hair as it is insoluble.

    3.About one third of all Americans flush the toilet while they are still sitting on it!

    4.Most lipstick contains fish scales!

    5.It takes seven minutes for the average person to fall asleep!
    6.The bullet-proof vest, windscreen wipers, laser printers and fire escapes were all invented by women!

    7.In the 1880s, "pants" was considered a dirty word in England!

    8.It was the Chinese who invented sun glasses in the 13th century!

    9.If you look at a blank piece of white paper after you have been working at your computer for a long period, the paper will appear to be pink!

    10.The opposite sides of a dice always add up to seven!



    Now, your turn.

    Contribute guys!
    Together we learn!!!

    Quite bizarre stuff. I´ll add

    99.99...% of the atom is empty space. So, in the end, you, me and everything else are nothing more than lots of empty spaces.

    Damnit.

    China is now the largest English speaking country which will soon overtake the economy. We have to start learning how to speak Chinese.

    That's some very interesting facts you got there. Well since I'm already here, I think it will be unethical if I don't share mine. So here it is:

    The most effective way to close a sale when someone is stalling is to ask "When were you planning to [experience X result]?"

    If forces them to make a decision regarding timeliness & priority of the purchase and puts them in touch with the reality of what it'll take to get there as opposed to focussing on their price based inhibitions.

    I tried a similar thread a while back... didn't take off but happy to contribute to this one...! Sooooo....an amazing fact about cuckoo's...(again!...)

    So I've been around over 60 years years.....reasonably educated.....seen a bit of the World.......probably bit cuckoo myself sometimes (I'll say it before anyone else does) but some facts just defy explanation......

    Take Cuckoo's for instance.........OK we all know what clever birds they are.........The male has his evil way with the female, and then flits off to find another female...job done...(Nothing new there then...nice work if you can get it..)

    So Mrs Cuckoo then goes off and lays her egg in some unsuspecting other birds nest and avoids all the hard work of bringing up the kids.....

    But until recently I had no idea of just how incredibly clever the female is...

    Not only does she lay her egg in another birds nest, but before laying she takes a peep in the selected nest first to see what colour the eggs in there are, and then she lays an egg the same colour to match! Clever or what.....

    So got blue eggs in there with black spots....OK....got one coming right up....and she lays a matching egg.....

    So I hear you thinking....OK...some Cuckoo's can only lay blue eggs with black spots, so they must only lay eggs in matching nests right?.......Wrong...!

    If the nest has brown eggs with black smudges.....hey presto.....matching egg...cream coloured egg.....no problem.....

    Isn't that just amazing.......... ?
