Weird Facts

Weird Facts

Shared via AddThis

The layout of this blog link is pretty naff, but the facts are amazingly weird. And I'm not talking the boring kind of 'polar bears are left-handed' or useless trivia such as that. I mean, really weird and true... For example, did you know that:

In 2008, zoologists were using NASA satellites to count the population of kangaroo rats?

That a Wisconsin woman allegedly brought a rat into an upscale restaurant, claimed it was in her meal and then sought $500,000 to keep quiet.

A 'jiffy' is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second. Not a brown padded parcel bag.

The link took me to a site that asked me if I wanted to open an online savings account. My weird fact is: No, thank you.

Here's a weird fact - the spline curve is the most attractive shape to man. Women are made of spline curves.

yeah, the site opens up on the ads by google - there are some ads to scroll down until you get to the decent facts.

but I did not know about the spline curve - thanks for that factoid!

Hello again!

You remember Metody no? Metoody has been away for long time.

Metody is thinking it odd that woman with curvature of spine is most attractive to man. Is this in Estonia?

I see you.
