    See what I mean? Full of interesting yet ultimately pointless facts!

    *sigh* It most definitely is going to get interesting...

    Ohh well... Did you know that the youngest person to develop a neutron gun was only 15!, By 17 he'd been able to enrich Uranium using his neutron gun, the original design was quite crude but when the Police caught him dumping somthing suspicious they tought it was a body, it turned out to be Uranium 239 that he'd enriched from Uranium 235.

    That would only make sense if you knew a little about Nuclear Physics. I know a little, but I dislike hain to work out the equations..

    Did I say I know completely Random things....

    The longest range sniper kill was 2,430 metres, by a Canadian sniper during the recent Afghanistan War on Terror campaign. The flight time was 4 seconds and the bullet dropped 44.5 metres. This is all in metric measurements as snipers prefer the metric for ranging purposes.

    Knew the first one, didn't know the second. So you win that one.:sad:

    But here's something I doubt you'll know: Noel Gallagher, one of the two Oasis frontmen, considers his best vocal performance to date to be on a track that Oasis didn't release. See if you can guess which one...;):evil::evil::evil:

    The most common name in the English language is Smith, in the US alone there is 2.4 million Smiths, about 1% of the population.

    In both the PRC and the ROC, Zhang is the most popular name. In the PRC, Zhangs alone make up 10% of the population. This about 115 million Zhangs. This makes it the most popular name in the world.

    At least someone has heard of David Hahn, who happens to be a sailor on the USS Enterprise, which has six nuclear reactors...

    Sorry but I haven't a clue all I can remember about Oasis is wonder wall and something involving the lead singer nutting a journalist...

    Perhaps we should make a 'Random Facts' thread, like the one rever started on the titansgo forums!

    I never knew a battle could be raged, not by flinging bullets at each other, nor verbal insults, but rather, random facts...

    I quite liked the sound of that statement!

    Ok, here's a fact for you: [font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The Bible has been translated into Klingon. [/font]
    Weird huh?

    Hah! I win!:p

    But...I didn't know about all the other random facts, Dimmy's included, so I guess I don't win after all.:sad:

    I like the sound of that. See if the "Fun & Games" forum would be interested.;):anime::anime:

    Hi Reket nice to meet you!

    Sherlock Holmes has never said '[font=&quot]Elementary, m[/font]y dear Watson.' not in any of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Books, nor the screenplays.
    Despite considerable success Holmes was never Sir Conan Doyle's favourite character.

    In the Australian city of Melbourne, during the 2003-2005 Gangland wars, the most popular weapons for the slayings were a .38 Smith & Wesson 1898 revolver, similar to the one used by the Victorian Police and a sawn-off double barrelled shotgun. These weapons were wielded True Crime: Streets of LA-style, most significantly in the murder of the second Moran brother at a saturday morning little league football game, in front of his children.

    That last one was part of an Exam piece I did for Legal Studies.

    I know too much... Way too much...

    Well, hi Rever76, I haven't got a chance to meet you yet. I'll see ya around the boards. Also knowing too much can be helpful in some situations. . .you mentioned Sherlock Holmes. Knowing too much did wonders for that character.

    Contrary to Popular belief, the Pavlova cake was actually invented in New Zealand, not Australia...

    And no, I don't intend to, as most of the private detectives in my region are all hired to investigate the Victorian Police Drug squad, which has been completely suspended 6 times since 2000, or the Gangland killings and that is Bloody and scary, so no. I hope to become a high-powered barrister, suing people for ridiculously amounts of Lucre for ridiculously small disputes...

    Welcome rever, sorry this is late as a hello!

    So, my fact? LEt's see....something i'm sure absolutely everybody knows...

    Ok, did you know that Julius Caesar was not actually an emperor? The first emperor of Rome was his adopted son, Claudius Augustus, who's rise to power was concealed beneath the facade of reviving the Roman Republic. Boring, but something i know.

    Oh, and the modern state of democracy is actually quite different to the ancient Greek (namely, Athenian) idea of a democratic constitution.
