Useless Information!!!

A thread on the mouth piece made me ramble out some completely useless information. However I do find some useless information quite interesting and funny, so I was just wondering what other useless info everyone else knows. For instance the reason why your fingers and toes go wrinkly in the bath is because it's the only part of the body with no hair!
:wow

From your wrist to your elbow is the same length as your foot.

There are more chickens than people in the world.

No one can lick their own elbow. (try it!)

A cockroach can live for nine days without its head before it dies of starvation.

Their are over 10 trillion living cells in a human body.

I have tons of these facts!

No piece of paper can be folded in half more than 7 times.

Donkeys kill more people annually than plane crashes

But if you could fold a piece of paper (1/1000th inch thick) in half 50 times it would be over 17 million miles thick!

we have a random facts session in our music lessons at college (mad teacher).

a Ducks quack doesn't echo

the fone rings in 5/8 time cos apparantly 5/8 time agitates people so they need to pick the fone up quicker and if it rang in 4/4 time they wouldn't feel the need to or summit!! (don't ask me just repeatin wht mad music teacher tol,d me)

There was an item in one of the papers yesterday where a university professor reckons he has proved that a duck's quack does echo, but he needed a very large building - I forget where, but something like St Pauls' - to prove it :!: :wink: :lol:
