Talking The Random Facts Game

Post the funniest/random fact you can find.

FACT: The Baby Ruth candy bar was actually named after Grover Cleveland's baby daughter, Ruth.
... I always thought it was named after the famous baseball star Babe Ruth with all the commercials and all.

I have found the word heardquarters is a singular form, I had always thought it is the plural form of the headquarters.

Sadly, there is no word headquarter at all!

Welshmen are prohibited from entering Chester before the sun rises – and have to leave again before the sun goes down, according to an old bylaw.

Sometimes this forum just cracks me up! Lol!

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds was not about LSD. John Lennon got the idea when young Julian came home from school with a drawing he made in class. Julian told his dad it was Lucy in the sky with diamonds, a picture of his classmate Lucy Vodden.

Lucy passed away recently. She was only 46. Read about the song, Lucy, John and Julian Lennon here.

A Chinese proverb literally translates to:

War does not determine who is right, war determine who is left.

There is no such thing as a pair of pants. A 'pair' of pants would be two pants, not one.

Same thing with a pair of scissors. There is no such thing as scissors unless you have more than one. If you only have one, it would be correctly called a scissor.

slightly incorrect, the law stands now at they must leave at midnight, and it only applies to the inside of the old town walls. the law is still in place and if you see a welshman breaking this law you can shoot him from the town walls, the penalty for a captured welshman is hanging. technicly.

Kids in Armenia play a game called Egg Jousting.

Two kids each take one hard-boiled egg. They then tap the small ends of the eggs together until one of the eggs crack.

They then turn the eggs over and tap the large ends together until one egg cracks.

The first egg that cracks at both ends is the loser and must be given to the kid holding the winning egg.

Have you guys ever thought about the creation story according to the Bible ? How would everyone of us have been living if Adam and Eve never ate that apple. NAKED ?
Just like you are in front of your PC, browsing v7n. NAKED ?
The President of ####### would have been delivering his speech to the whole wide world, ...NAKED ?

But it would have been very interesting cause our 'f' folks would have been afraid to come out of their various hideouts cause we the GUYS will always be waiting for them in every corner. How interesting our world would have been.
