Nothings better than useless facts

Apart from useless facts with random pictures. Here are 20 to keep you going.


An astronaut can be up to 5cm (2 inches) taller returning from space. The cartilage disks in the spine expand in the absence of gravity.

In eighteenth-century London you could purchase insurance against going to Hell.

The first traffic lights (powered by gas lamps) were installed outside the Houses of Parliament in 1868. Unfortunately they blew up and killed a policeman.

If Roman women wanted to be blonde, they bleached their hair with pigeon droppings.

In Turkey, Persia and India, the death penalty was once considered a fitting cure for smokers.

The Lost numbers are 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, & 42.


The modern blood-drinking capital of the world is Seattle. About 15,000 practising vampires live there.

The mask used by Michael Myers in "Halloween" was actually a Captain Kirk mask painted white.
Blonde beards grow faster than darker beards.

Killing a cat was an offence punishable by death in ancient Egypt. In the event of a fire, cats were the first to be rescued. If the family cat died the head of the household shaved of his eyebrows, and it was only when they had grown back that the mourning period was declared over.

A rat can last longer without water than a camel.

  • yes, one day i decided, wouldnt it be great to spend $5 a day just to piss people off with my second hand smoke? despite the fact that most of them are smoked in my house doesnt at all weaken the joy i get from seeing people's faces when i smoke a few in the smoking section of a restaurant, or in a bar, or even outside! i used to just do it because i enjoy smoking, but now seeing as how im making who generalized and stereotype (smokers are assholes?) angry, im gonna try harder to be less considerate!

  • "I smoke so I can piss other people off, it makes me happy"

    wtf? Lets not forget the reason all smokers start smoking in the first place. It's to try to fit in and make friends. All smokers are just depressed pussies with low self-esteem... which would explain why you would say you are happy it pisses people off. I dont smoke cuz I want to live a nice enjoyable life, you smoke so that way the time you ARE on earth you spend with at least a couple friends retarded as you that just use you to bum you for a "smoke" or a "light"...

    I mean, afterall, smokers are right, spending the $2-3,000 dollars used every year on cigarettes clearly has no better purpose...

  • I think that smokers who bitch about nont being able to smoke in Florida restaurants are assholes. I'm a non smoker, but a server, and I have asthma, and a history of cancer in my family, so I don't think it's fair that I should have to be subjected to second hand smoke while I am doing my job. And for arguments sake, I have never worked in a restaurant where the manager won't keep people from serving in the smoking section (even though I've had asthma attacks because of the smoke). If you wanna spend $6 a day to choke down something that is more likely to kill you than everything but heart disease, feel free...bt please leave me out of it.

    For some people smoking has a claming effect during a stressful or intense situation, ie when swamped at work, after a "bad" event, or even after sex.....but Iguess you gotta leave your parents basement to experience any of those things.

  • so yeah, ok asshole, smokers aren't always people who smoke to try to fit in. some people start because they're stressed. some start because of motherf**kers like you who criticize us on a subject you don't know a f**king thing about. Try getting addicted to something, and try to quit, you f**king chode. you need to eat a dick, and not be a total ass about stuff you clearly are uninformed about. and then go smoke a cigarette, because YOU, my friend, are the depressed pussy with no self-esteem, that you need to come on here and bash people who have an addiction, not a complex which requires them to make others suffer with their smoke.

They could smoke all they want, but if Im sitting down in a lobby or a bus stop, and some person sits down next to me and starts blowing smoke everywhere, I think thats really rude. To make it worse, I get pretty bad headaches when I am around smoke even for a few minutes, and I know Im not alone.

    There's something inherently disgusting in a retarded blonde chick in a bikini smoking while talking on her cell phone about how her new shoes are TO DIE FOR! CUTESY GIGGLE!

    Secondhand smoke sucks a lot. There's a difference between coffee and cigarettes, tard. Smoke fills a room, coffee doesn't. The smell might, but the actual coffee doesn't. Secondhand smoke forces the people around you to inhale smoke into their lungs. Drinking coffee doesn't force other people to drink coffee.

    But hey, does it ruin your life? No, you douchebags. It might ruin your moment, might weaken the joy of your current experience, but ruin your life? Get a grip.

  • "Those that give up essential liberty for temporary saftey, deservce neither."

    Having said that, non-smokers need to keep their opinions to themselves as do the smokers. If a smoker lights up in public, then that is their prerogative and there should NOT be anything anyone, other than the owner of the particular place they are standing, can do about it. The best thing about freedom is that if you don't like what's going on where you're at, then you can just leave.

Hospitals should be filled with people who have serious illnesses from SERIOUS problems, not idiots who decided to put rat poison into their lungs so they can look cool or "feel good". By no means am I saying that smokers are bad people, I'm just saying you're all defenitly a part of the problem. Same thing with obese people.

It's ok to go to a pub and drink poision (that's what alcohol is) but you better not smoke there because it's harmful to your health. Shut the fuck up and go eat a tofu burger you bunch of fags. John Wayne would cock slap you in the face if he met you. Give me a Marb and a shot of Jack. This one is to all you pussies that are afraid of dying. Get off your mom's tit and be a fucking man.

    To all the rest that have a negative outlook on smoking because of the smokers health, that is not your concern. Period. The fact that they may end up in a hospital dying of lung cancer or what have you is a non-issue for you. The medical care BUSINESS is a as big a BUSINESS as any.

  • I can sympathize with servers, bartenders and the like.
    However, the fact that the state (Federal Government) tells smokers where they can and cannot smoke is a goddamn shame. The only people that should be able to do that are the owners of said restaraunts, bars, etc.
    Oh, and the Government doesn't own a damn thing. A piece of paper is not physically capable of owning anything, regardless of what the puppets of that piece of paper say. We are a long way from where we should be in this country and this smoking issue is not even the tip of the iceburg. IF none of you have, I recommend reading George Orwell's, 1984. Then after you've read it, compare it to todays US Government.

    hell i'm a smoker too, i'm just trying to tell you at least know what you're doing and dont try to kid yourself...

  • I always wondered what it would be like if people stopped judging others and putting themselves above people who have bad habits.. Mmm. What a world it would be!

    For the record, I'm a non-smoker. But that doesn't mean I have to hate all smokers! :D!

  • I'm a smoker, and have tried to quit smoking several times, I hate the idea that something can control my actions, its a addiction that is very hard to overcome. I've also stopped for 2 years and boom something happens and I'm right back at it, thinking the same things. I've always been a considerate smoker, being careful not to offend anyone. And eventually I will finally kick the habit. My issue on this whole thing is that its my choice, and my health, we have bigger problems with obesity, aids, alcholism and other types of cancer not associated with smoking that is killing people at a higher rate, but those ignorant wanting to point the finger at the smokers have some serious issues themselves.As for the waitresses who have to endure the smoke and implications from it, have the control to change their atmosphere (find another job). If you read the studies it is inconclusive and mostly those die hard liberals screaming foul. I have no problems not smoking in restaurants, I am the only smoker in the family and go out of my way to not smoke around them, I dont even like the way I smell after a smoke, but its harder to kick then the non smokers think (except for my hubby) He's watched me fighting it for years now. Those who claim theyre smoker haters, really need to look at their own bad habits and stop critisizing others. Its hypocritcal. You have your opinion, but bashing the smokers is not the way to do it.

    We have bigger issues than this, a war in IRAQ our soldiers fighting to stay alive to protect our freedom, and give others the same freedoms we have here, that people want to complain about. If they dont like it then they should go IRAQ themselves or to another communist country if they think its so bad here. Do people ever stop and think that if they didnt live in a free country such as ours that you wouldnt have the libertys you have here in expressing your own opinions?

  • Everyone has their vice. Smoking isn't the worst one to have.

  • Wow... While I agree that smoking is a bad habit that everyone should avoid, like a previous poster, I must point out that this is not a forum for debate on the virtues or evils of cigarettes (or other tobacco products).

    Hilarious list; I especially enjoyed the fact about insurance against hell and would like to know who the broker is.

  • To Anoymouses: So... even with all the people who try to remind you what this board is for, you guys continue the "smoking" debate. Good listening skills, people.

    To Article Poster: Anyway, the vampires in Seattle. Exactly what is a practicing vampire?

    I really liked your article. It made me laugh and cheered me up...until I read the comments. But overall, great article!!

    P.S. Where did you get this information?

    P.P.S. I don't get all the "Anonymous" commenters. Are you afraid to tell people who you are? You don't even have to use your real name. No bitching meant.

    P.P.P.S. Oh, and be nice to blondes. As for Anonymous #6, get over yourself. You don't know these people, so who are you to say you're a better person than them?

    P.P.P.P.S. I'll make out with you!!

  • I hear everyone in here whining about smoking. But everybody is ignoring the more vital issues of peanuts and grapes that explode. As well as the fact that William Shatner's face is lurking in your closet with a knife WHILE YOU READ THIS!

    If I could take my pants off and moon all of you arguing fools via a stable internet connection well then I would. Fortunately (or unfortunately) for you I can't.

    I will now end this horrible debate about smoking.

    Fact 1: Ciggarette smoke contains harmful poisons.
    Fact 2: Danny DeVito should be our ambassador to Mars.
    Fact 3: Ciggarette smoke gives me headaches.
    Fact 4: Morons arguing in a public forum about something that the forum wasn't inteded for gives me headaches.
    Fact 5: Dumbledor(sp?) is cool.
    Fact 6: I'm mooning you right now. (Look closer)
    Fact 7: Llamas can survive without water or quicksand longer than the horrible mutant hybrid of a rat/mule. (But only because the rat/mule dies as a result of being a horrible abomination of nature mere seconds after it is brought to life)

    Conclusion: Smoking is bad. Morons are bad. I like pie.
    Debate over!
