Useless Facts about anything

Recommended Posts

Women blink nearly twice as much as men.

Nutmeg is extremely toxic when injected intravenously. Excessive consumption of the spice is also dangerous and can lead to death. Nutmeg can also cause hallucinations when taken in excess, along with nausea, dehydration, and generalised body pain.

The only domestic animal not mentioned in the Bible is the cat (even God thinks they are Evil...sorry that's from me not the fact)

A cat's jaw cannot move sideways. (I bet I can make it with my boot.....sorry, also from me)

The microwave was invented after a researcher walked by a radar tube and a chocolate bar melted in his pocket.

The reason betamax didn't take off?

.

.

.

.

The porn industry!

Sony wouldn't allow porn films to be distributed on betamax so they got distruibuted on the inferior VHS system. Consequently customers went out and bought VHS players not betamax.

They didn't make the same mistake again with blu-ray!

Interesting Porn facts starting with yours!!

Porn controls digital media. A great example was VHS. Before everyone was on board with VHS, Betamax was fighting tooth and nail for control. Porn chose to use VHS tapes as its’ main source of distribution and the rest is history. Same can be said for Blu-Ray and HD-DVD. Porn chose the former and now you can buy HD-DVD’s for a dollar.

Jackie Chan didn’t get his start in porn but it did help. Back in 1975, he was struggling to break into the movie business so he did a couple adult films that featured little fighting and lots of crotch shots

What feature on the female body do you think men focus on during a porn viewing? It isn’t the ass, breasts, or legs. It is the face. Of all the body parts to stare at during the moment, men would rather chose to look at the women’s face.

In 2001, there were around 70,000 adult websites. Today, just 12 years later, they are more than 4.2 million pornographic websites in the US alone. It does not take a math major to figure out that increase is tremendous. 

Male porn performers do not bring home all that much bacon. They can make more money performing in gay porn than straight porn, as much as three times as much per film.

The sizes of the apparatus used for male astronauts to pee, had to be changed from small, medium, and large, to large, gigantic, and humongous, because no one was willing to pick their true size.

Ahhh...nutmeg. One soggy afternoon, back when the world was young, I was reading the biography of Charlie Parker..;who, along with Gillespie and Davis, invented be-bop. In there was a passage recounting the way in which Bird, in his younger days in Kansas City, would swallow ground nutmeg mixed with a soda (American for a carbonated soft drink).

It was a dull day with nothing going on...and I was sure there must be some in the kitchen! So I had a prospect through the kitchen cupboards and came up with some of the stuff.....Hmmmm....opened the fridge and took out a can of Coke....poured out some of the Coke...now; how much to add? Went back to the book...no clue there....what the heck, in for a penny...so I spooned in a fair old quantity.

It floated.

Back to the book...it did say that you had to stir it vigorously and then chug it down...and it warned about the possibility of it reappearing rapidly thereafter.

OK......stirrystirrystirrystirrystirrystirrySWIG!!!!!

Ugh....hell's teeth......yuk.........phew. Not the world's best experience, that...Jolly glad I still had some unadulterated Coke to rinse the mouth out!

And I went back to reading the book. The hallucinations started a while later...and persisted through the night and into the next day; so much so that I was unable to be sure they had ended!!

It's all legal, folks....no law against nutmeg.......

British spies used to use Semen as invisible ink but had to stop after it began to smell when it wasn't fresh.

The best-selling work of fiction of the 15th century was "The Tale of the Two Lovers," an erotic novel by the man who later became Pope Pius II.

The trusty vibrator was originally invented in the 19th century to reduce ‘female hysteria’.

Average speed of ejaculation: 28 miles per hour.

The most children born to one mother was 69. Yes – that’s right 69! The Russian supermum, whose own name was never recorded – rude – and wife to Feodor Vassilyev gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quads between 1707 and 1782. Even more staggering is that 67 survived infancy.

Giacomo Casanova interesting facts. He didn't just sleep with women, one of his famous quotes was from that time when he was surprised to find his male friend seducing him while the pair spied on naked girls in an Ottoman harem. “It would have been impolite to refuse,” he said. “I should have shown myself ungrateful."

He also persuaded one of the wealthiest women in the world, the ageing but eccentric Marquess d’Urfe, that his mystical Kabbalah healing powers could be used to provide her with the eternal life she craved. His age-defying therapies required large quantities of her money and often involved him having sex, either with the Marquess herself or with various virgins while the Marquess watched.

His lowest point came when he tried to impregnate his 20-year-old eldest daughter (with his wife’s consent) and give her a child because her husband was impotent. She later bore him a child who was his son and grandson. 

Four Popes have died having sex. Whilst that means 262 popes haven't died having sex it's a very interesting fact as Popes aren't meant to have sex at all!

Apologies - will have to contest that.

By definition reaching escape velocity (circa 25300mph) on the moon landing missions must have beaten this..... :ph34r:

Ahemm - I beg to differ @mayesprit

I am at this very moment travelling at 324,000 mph or 41 666.6667mph depending on your point of view - it's all relative you know!

 

 

The last line of the song is quite apt really after the past few weeks.

Contest or not I can't argue right or wrong other than:

Astronauts Thomas Stafford, John Young, & Eugene Cernan hit that speed. 

It came out of the horses mouth (Eugene Cernan) in the Documentary 'Last man on the moon'

Guiness book of records also state it and just because I've nothing better to do I Googled it..... and guess what?

 

??

Furry muff. :)

I did actually study Aerospace Engineering, and "orbital mechanics" which looked at how you travel between planets/moons and move from one orbit to another, was absolutely fascinating. Loved that class B-)
