Over 10 things you didn't know(V2.0 NEW FACTS)

Black Ops forum

The last one got deleted, So to annoy the mods, I made a new one:



1. Soybob is not actually human. He is a specialist computer developed by chinese scientists to learn about american secrets, then use them against themselves and create disaster. (Thats why he posted that comment about the moon, He knew it wasnt real!)



2.The UK's first mobile phone call was made 20 years ago this year, when Ernie Wise rang the Vodafone head office, which was then above a curry shop in Newbury.



3. While it's an offence to drop litter on the pavement, it's not an offence to throw it over someone's garden wall.



4. Baboons can tell the difference between English and French. Zoo keepers at Port Lympne wild animal park in Kent are having to learn French to communicate with the baboons which had been transferred from Paris zoo.



5. Devout Orthodox Jews are three times as likely to jaywalk as other people, according to an Israeli survey reported in the New Scientist. The researchers say it's possibly because religious people have less fear of death. ( It's a shame becuase aren't they not supposed to cross over the road?)



6. Humans can be born suffering from a rare condition known as "sirenomelia" or "mermaid syndrome", in which the legs are fused together to resemble the tail of a fish.



7. One in 10 Europeans is allegedly conceived in an Ikea bed. (because it's sweedish and..... i'll let you finish the joke)



8. Until the 1940s rhubarb was considered a vegetable. It became a fruit when US customs officials, baffled by the foreign food, decided it should be classified according to the way it was eaten. (rhubarb and custard is one example)



9. It's possible for a human to blow up balloons via the ear. A 55-year-old factory worker from China reportedly discovered 20 years ago that air leaked from his ears, and he can now inflate balloons and blow out candles. ( How the hell he can use that skill ot help him in real life i dont know but good for him!)



10. Lionesses like their males to be deep brunettes.



11. The Queen has never been on a computer, she told Bill Gates as she awarded him an honorary knighthood

(or as she would put it " one is quite baffled by these machines")



12. The 71m packets of biscuits sold annually by United Biscuits, owner (actually distributor stupid website) of McVitie's, generate 127.8 tonnes of crumbs. (MY STEP-DAD WORKS THERE OMG OMG OMG OMG LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL he's a shift manager!)



13. When faced with danger, the octopus can wrap six of its legs around its head to disguise itself as a fallen coconut shell and escape by walking backwards on the other two legs, scientists discovered.



14.. "Restaurant" is the most mis-spelled word in search engines. (i had a hell of a time finding that fact, I couldnt seem to spell it right)



15. Australians host barbecues at polling stations on general election days.



And Finally



16. C3PO and R2D2 do not speak to each other off-camera because the actors don't get on.



(If the mods delete this post i'm calling for the solicitors.........Again)

E1. You can bet on your own death.

E2. Giant squid eat each other - especially during sex.

E3. Jimi Hendrix pretended to be gay to be discharged from the US Army.

E4. The only day in that time when no-one killed themselves was 16 March, 2001

E5.Pulling your foot out of quicksand takes a force equivalent to that needed to lift a medium-sized car.

E6. Spanish Flu, the epidemic that killed 50 million people in 1918/9, was known as French Flu in Spain. (because the spanish didn't want to take the blameSmiley Wink)

I knew number 1 already.

I would be offended if you threw litter over my garden wall.

Rhubarb is gross. It came to the Americas in the 1820s, and the leafy part is poisonous. It's not considered a fruit. You eat meat pies and don't consider meat a fruit.
