A few facts that blew my mind (25 Photos)

  • Machinist

    Something to ponder, when you hear about the big oil disasters with millions of gallons being spilled in the sea… 😦

    • MonkeyMadness

      Yes, but there's a lot of water in the ocean.

    • DJDoubleB

      Buy oil and water don't mix!!!

  • Quantumfog

    There were five lions used over the years in MGM's logo. The one shown is Leo, trained by Ralph Helfer, who is still alive.

  • Stan_Dalone

    most all of these right or wrong are pointless

  • Laurie

    I don't get the one about the ostrich…don't we have urinary bladders??

      Are you a bird?

      • CHEDDARS

        if they are, then a talented bird being able to use a computer.

        • dirtysteve99

          maybe it's Mr.Burns' diversity hire, Stewart.

    • Anonymous

      Pretty sure we’re not birds

    • MonkeyMadness

      Read the whole thing.

  • Huzzah

    #20 Yeah, she made everyone else stutter, instead.

  • Dan

    were any of these researched or just made up on the fly?

    • MonkeyMadness

      I'm guessing most were made up.

    • BAMBAM

      76% of all facts are made up on the spot.

    • Texas Made

      *actual subtitle from the 1938 Time "Man of the Year" cover

    • LuvH8fulChix

      Tourettes is an awful disease.

    • uga1

      you misspelled fucking*

  • Gregatron

    #15 Peeing in the shower isn't that gross. Pee is sterile and therefore cleaner than EVERYTHING in your house…

    • Scientific Chiver

      Correct you are. The main constituents of urine are urea and ammonia, both of which disallow growth of pathogens.

    • LuvH8fulChix

      Antiseptic trumps sterile. I assert then that the vodka would be "cleaner."

      • DJDoubleB

        And is in my house! Yay!

  • A BiPolar Guy

    #6 Time's "Man of the Year" is not meant as an honer or award. It's meant to be the person who influenced the world most – for good or evil.

    • http://www.tube8.com USMC Chesty Puller

      Talk about forshadowing" LOL

  • MonkeyMadness

    #8 I bet she has a lovely singing voice.

  • Fatality

    #17 is BS. I know for fact a town here in France where the population's 8. I assume this isn't the only BS info here.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=27206114 Михаил Рикэттс

      how is it bs? they only said smallest city in russia and czech republic, didnt say anything about france or the world.

      oh wait it is bs cuz Magas has a population of 2,505 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magas

    • Juiol

      Exactly, I was going to point out that we have several here in Portugal with less than 20. I know one personally that has 12.
      So, yeah. Bullshit.

  • Antoine

    #4 is totaly wrong, it is the dust that create the bubles. It doesn't mean that the champagne is good. I am french

    • LC

      i love that being French automatically makes you an authority. and i don't mean that in a sarcastic way — i totally believe you because you are French.

    • LuvH8fulChix

      I love that being Frecnch automatically makes you an authority, and I do mean that in a sarcastic way.

    • http://www.tube8.com USMC Chesty Puller

      Sorry to hear you are French. But don't worry you are a Chiver, so we forgive you and won't hold it against you. We Chivers know there really isn't much you can do to fix it/change it.

    Chive, love ya, but pulling the exact post from Izismile (dot) com from yesterday? Keep Calm, try harder.

  • Duke

    Not entirely true, the smallest town in Europe or maybe the world, according to the Guinness book of world records is Hum in Croatia with only 17 inhabitants

    • Kenneth

      how do you define a town? There are places in western Kansas, USA that are literally a house or three next to a grain elevator.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=682265258 Lindsey Bergeron

    #17….the town next to mine has eighty someodd people. And probably more moose. Way to go, Vermont.

    • http://www.tube8.com USMC Chesty Puller

      gosh darn it Lindsey .. you are just sssooo cute.

      They are comparing European Countries. =)

      Don't stop working out and putting make up on daily though

    #23…challenge accepted

  • Wally W.

    Many of these are just myths, not facts.

  • LC

    #11: noted.
    #14: now THAT'S what i'd do if i had a time machine…
    #19: not a saguaro, sillies

    • bridgemaster

      you would do herion if you had a time machine? i would do #20

      • LC

        maybe if my time machine also had a lesbian transformer. but it wouldn't have to be set that high, let's be honest…

  • dirtysteve99

    #2 How many of those teeth actually belong to the alligator though?

  • Nevenem

    smallest city in the world is in Croatia and its called Hum, only 17 people live in it! http://hr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hum_%28Buzet%29

    • Nevenem

      probably there is even smaller town but no one can find it! 😛

  • Obvilious

    Duh. You don't buy anything until you are ready to leave.
