Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Zephyr on Mon Mar 28, 2011 12:06 pm

Hey all, your friendly neighborhood Tsuki here.

I've decided that, seeing as I'm such a wellspring of random facts, I'd start up a thread and give you all a daily tidbit of useless information.

Today's Fact:

Did you know that the force of Time actually flows slower around objects of large mass? For example, if one were to stand by the Great Pyramid of Giza and watch someone one hundred meters away walking, the person standing by the pyramid would perceive said person as moving faster than they actually are. Due to this phenomenon, satellites orbiting the earth are in constant need of chronological recalibration.
Hello, friends...

Did you know Texas is the only state in the US that allows its residents to vote from space? Did you also know Linda Wolfe is the most married women in the world. She legally married 23 men one after the other; each marriage ending in death of the husband or divorce. Did you know Linda Wolfe has a good lawyer?

Haha. See what I did there?

Is there science behind that?

Yes, there is. There is a paper written by Stephen Hawkings on the subject.

On the same note, time goes by slower when in the presence [but not within the event horizon] of a black hole.

Four dimes, three quarters, and four pennies is the largest amount of money in coins you can have without being able to make change for a dollar.

lol Now, I'm gonna have to ask a for a source on this one. Not out of debate, but just pure curiosity.

@Tsukihana: Yes, I did infact know all that. I actually watched Hawking's documentary on Discovery Channel, I think it was, and he explained the same thing, including "Wormhole Suicide." XD

Did you know that you cannot snore and dream at the same time?

Dude, Tsuki, you should totally have Karato and myself help you out with this. We did this shit for FUN in high school.

Fact: The term "southpaw" to describe a left-handed person originated from baseball, when diamonds were traditionally plotted out such that the direction from the pitcher's mound to the plate was west. Thus, left-handed pitchers earned the appellation because of where their pitching arm was situated during their delivery.

Indeed, I did know that! Thanks.

Did you know that airports that are at a high altitude need longer airstrips due to decreased air density?

Also, in the mid nineties Sony "accidentally" sold a number of video cameras that had the technology to see through clothing.

Did you know that most animals [aside from humans] cannot properly comprehend images portrayed on televisions? They process the framerate differently than we do, and so images that we see will look and move completely different to them.
