What utter bull...

At the service speed of 28.5 knots, consumption is 380 tons per day:
this equates to 50 ft/gall.


More Monopoly money is printed in a year, than real money printed throughout the world

Just in the U.S alone In 2009, the US government printed a total of $2.1 trillion and in 2010 it was just over $2.0 trillion... Parker a subsidiary of Hasbro, started making MONOPOLY in 1935. Until 1998, $15,140 worth of MONOPOLY money was included in each game; current editions include $20,580.

Hasbro states that 250 million copies of MONOPOLY have been sold since 1935 (in 103 Countries and 37 languages). They’ve sold an average of 3.3 million copies per year. If we use the current edition, that would mean they print $67.7 billion during an average year.

Peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite

Peanut oil can be processed to produce glycerol, which can be used to make nitroglycerin, one of the constituents of dynamite. However, there are other processes that can be used to make dynamite without using peanuts at all

The first couple to be shown in bed together on prime time TV in the US was Fred and Wilma Flintstone.

Mary kay and Johnny was the first couple to share a bed in 1947 it was a short 15 minute Episode that aired that year. it was on the air for 3 years, and had three different television channels it was on. No Episodes are around any more....Fred and Wilma Flintstone, on the animated cartoon series The Flintstones (1960-1966), were the first animated couple to be seen together sharing a bed.

The longest one-syllable word in the English language is "screeched."

The one that's most commonly cited is screeched (nine letters). But there are also scratched, scrounged, scrunched, stretched, and the plural nouns straights and strengths (all with nine letters).

The 20-volume historical Oxford English Dictionary also has scraughed, scrinched, scritched, scrooched, sprainged, spreathed, throughed, and thrutched. It includes, too, a single instance of the ten-letter word scraunched, from the 1620 English translation of Don Quixote, a novel by the Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes.

Skepticisms is the longest word that alternates hands when typing

authenticity (12 letters) all of these have 11 letters Skepticisms, enchantment, entitlement, proficiency, shantytowns.

Rice paper does not have any rice in it.
it depends on what your default definition of “Rice Paper” is. Edible Rice Paper is in fact made from Rice. The kind intended for purposes such as caligraphy and oragami known as Washi or Wagami is made from a variety of fibers, including: hemp, mulberry, bamboo, wheat, and yes, even rice.

A ' jiffy ' is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second


The earliest technical usage for jiffy was defined by Gilbert Newton Lewis (1875–1946). He proposed a unit of time called the "jiffy" which was equal to the time it takes light to travel one centimetre (approximately 33.3564 picoseconds).[2] It has since been redefined for different measurements depending on the field of study.

In electronics, a jiffy is the time between alternating current power cycles,[2] 1/60 or 1/50 of a second in most countries


In computing, a jiffy is the duration of one tick of the system timer interrupt. It is not an absolute time interval unit, since its duration depends on the clock interrupt frequency of the particular hardware platform.

The speed of light in a vacuum provides a convenient universal relationship between distance and time, so in physics (particularly in quantum physics) and often in chemistry, a jiffy is defined as the time taken for light to travel some specified distance. In astrophysics and quantum physics a jiffy is, as defined by Edward R. Harrison,[6] the time it takes for light to travel one fermi, which is the size of a nucleon. One fermi is 10−15 m, so a jiffy is about 3 × 10−24 seconds.

All of the clocks in the movie Pulp Fiction are stuck on 4:20.

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

It was during a radar-related research project around 1946 that Dr. Percy Spencer, a self-taught engineer with the Raytheon Corporation, noticed something very unusual.
He was testing a new vacuum tube called a magnetron, when he discovered that the candy bar in his pocket had melted.
This intrigued Dr. Spencer, so he tried another experiment. This time he placed some popcorn kernels near the tube and, perhaps standing a little farther away, he watched with an inventive sparkle in his eye as the popcorn sputtered, cracked and popped all over his lab.

Los Angeles's full name is "El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles de Porciuncula" and it can be abbreviated to 3.63% of its size: "LA".
Contrary to the popular belief that the original name of Los Angeles was El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora La Reina de Los Angeles de Porciuncula (The Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels of the ((River)) Porciuncula), scholars have determined from official documents of Governor Felipe de Neve, Commandant General de la Croix and Viceroy Bucareli that the settlement was simply named El Pueblo de la Reina de Los Angeles (The Town of the Queen of the Angels.)
