Ok, back on the subject.

everyone remember that stupid show "boy meets world"?
Remember the teacher Mr. Feany? the main teacher (and also neighbour I believe) who always gives out good advice?

Well remember him, one time one of his nieces came to visit and the older brother had the hots for her, well that chick is that chick from felicity!

But that is not the main useless fact I want to mention.
There's more?........................

That Mr. Feany also did the voice for K.I.T.T. from KNIGHT RIDER.
Michael: "Kitt, I need you"
Kitt: "Michael look out behind you......" GHSSHHHH *Michael gets whacked from behind with a small bat*

The longest word in the English language is actually pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcaniconiosis. It is the latin/scientific term to describe the lung disease found mostly among coal miners.

The voice actor who provided the voice for Zippy in Rainbow also did the voices for most of the Daleks in Doctor Who.

It looks like (an oddly realistic rendition of) Jack Sparrow will be in Kingdom Hearts 2

Not too useless, but off the top of my head:

-Male seahorses give birth
-Female hyena's form a fake penis to show domination... they often try to use them.

A 100th of a second would be a centisecond, if there is such a term. A millisecond is a 1,000th of a second.

Some interesting facts about Sacred and American Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera ssp. nucifera and ssp. lutea)...

Lotus is one of only about 3 species of plants known to be endothermic (produce its own body heat) and homeothermic (seek an ideal body temperature). It uses this heat to attract its primary pollenators, nocturnal beetles. The heat also warms the surrounding water, extending the growing season in colder climates.

Lotus seeds have a thick impermeable casing and uniquely aggressive chaperonin proteins which allow the seeds to remain viable for centuries. The oldest viable lotus plant was grown from a 1200+ year-old seed recovered from a dry lakebed in China. I have personally grown lotus from 30 year old seeds. Most plant seeds have a viability not exceeding 5-10 years maximum.

Lotus replicates itself not only by seed distribution but by spreading rhizomes. Lotus rhizomes are hollow tube-like structures which spread aggressively through pond muck. The rhizomes are used for gas exchange and food storage. An entire lake full of lotus can be a single plant, spread through rhizomes.

All parts of the lotus plant are edible, including the seeds, which can be shelled and boiled. Lotus is a staple crop and religious icon in various parts of Asia. In the US, lotus is treated as a noxious weed and water hazard, though it was traditionally an emergency food source for many different native American tribes.

Lotus can be easily distinguished from water lilies (genus Nymphaea), because its leaves are completely circular, lacking the characteristic slit seen in true lily pads. Lotus and water lilies share many similar physical traits, but genetic analysis shows them to be completely unrelated, their similarities attributed to convergence rather than a close common ancestor. Lotus has no known close relatives. Its nearest genetic relative is the sycamore tree, which bears no obvious resemblance to lotus.

Proportionally, the hedgehog has the largest penis among all mammals. Keep this in mind if you draw Sonic hentai.

This is from the nerdiest joke I know:

Q: Why do mathematicians get Hallowe'en and Christmas confused?
A: Because OCT 31 = DEC 25

[31 in octal/base 8 = 25 in decimal/base 10]

The sad thing is that I've heard and understood the joke before. Either I'm well knowledged in mathimatics or I'm the biggest nerd. I think the latter is more correct. :oops:

Out of the 41 units mentioned there, 7 originate from Finland (counting the one used within the metric system). And with such undiluted brilliance used in naming them (The KKK system? The reindeer's piss?) it's a source of neverending amazement that the units have stayed in Finland.

Half-Life

Early in the game, you can find two books inside Gordon Freeman's closet. They are The 37th Mandala and The Orchid Eater. Both books actually exist; they were written by Marc Laidlaw - who also happens to be the game's writer, one of the level designers, and the model for Freeman's face.

Max Payne

A similar situation: the character's face was modeled after the game's writer, Sam Lake. In the sequel, however, it was modeled after actor Timothy Gibbs (some fans were so annoyed by the change, they created a mod to restore the hero's old face). In both games, actor James McCaffrey did Payne's voice.
