    Did you know.......

    Thought I'd start a start a topic based around little snippets of knowledge that you pick up that others may find useful.

    For instance.

    Did you know if you use Firefox and save passwords for websites anyone can access them via Tools > Options > Security > Saved passwords (reveal passwords) unless you set a master password to block that function?

    Was a thread like this the other day.

    I learnt that you can't name a folder in windows 'con', among other things

    I used my vast knowledge to inform people that an Aglet is the plastic or metal bit on the end of a shoelace

    Sean I'd say the best one came from Tippallo, Mississippi.

    I don't think sloths can jump either. Or hippos. Or me frankly. What's the point, makes my brain rattle around. :oops:

    Does anyone know how long it takes the light, from the furthest star we know about, to reach us on earth?

    8 years?

    man is the only animals that can speak english. (yorkshire men excepted) lol.:whistling:

    8 years?



    Close!

    Try 13 billion years (give or take a few).

    Unbelievable, I know. It sorta puts a little perspective on the vastness of 'out there' especially when you consider it only takes 8 mins for the light from the sun to reach us and thats 93 million miles away!

    Did you know if you have a green Banana and want it to ripen faster you should put it in a bowl with other ripe fruit as they release a gas that naturally triggers the Banana to ripen.

    They'll ease back the skin around the nail.. prolly wont cut the nail as it has to stay long so as not to grow further into the skin-- if it's anything like how the chiropodist treats my daughter xx
