I've got vast numbers of useless facts in my head.

Since we're all worried about Ukraine etc., here's a bunch of relevant geography-related facts. There's a small "country" between ukraine and moldova called transnistria/trans-dniester. It used to be the soviet/western border. It's occupied by yes, the russians. But technically a province of moldova. Moldova speaks Romanian (they deny it though), which is descended from latin (Roman, get it?). But they write in cyrillic (russian script).

The old name for Romania was Wallachia. The term appears in Dracula. Famous celeb from that area. May have heard of him. Anyway. Bottom of Moldova is an area called Bessarabia. It has nothing to do with Arabs. Also Russian and others. This was basically the boundary between the Ottoman (Turkish) empire and the west. Vlad the Impaler (Vlad Tepes) aka Dracula apparently fought them and impaled them.

Wallachia comes from an old Germanic word "Vlach" meaning foreigner. We see it in the word "Welsh" (Wealisc in Saxon). Apparently anyone non-Germanic was a vlach. In modern Greek apparently Vlachos means something like hillbilly. Apparently that's the stereotype about Romanians from the Greeks.

Romanian itself is mostly Latin but has funny borrowings from Slavic, like the word for friend/love can be iubi or dragoste, similar to Russian liuba and druga. Latin for these are amicus/amore etc.

Ukrainian is very similar to Russian but not identical. The relationship is similar to the German/Dutch/Frisian relationship, with about 62% words similar or the same.

OK done.


Iceland is much less icy and much more green than Greenland.


That wombats poop cubes. It has something to do with their intestines being really good at removing water and compacting waste and it comes out in cubes.

A proper one this time. Pineapple 'eats' you as you eat it. Pineapple contains a chemical called Bromelain that deconstructs (and will eventually dissolve) proteins, including human tissue.

Thanks to a Christmas geography quiz, in my first year of high school, I learned that the capital of Upper Volta is Ouagadougou.
Three years later, they tried to confuse me by changing the name of the country to Burkina Faso, which was just mean, but I adapted.
I don't think this knowledge has been useful even once in the last 40+ years, but if you ask me the capital of Burkins Faso, I'll tell you after only a very brief pause. I'm even quicker if you ask for the capital of Upper Volta.

Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo, buffalo Buffalo buffalo.

This can be re-written as:

I don't know if that statement about bison is true, just that the word buffalo can be used in that way.

Another word this is true for is "police" (both noun and verb). Who police's the police? Police-police police police. Who police's the police-police? Police-police-police police police-police.

You may think you are standing still but you are moving at nearly 1000 miles per hour as the earth spins on its axis. You are moving 66,000 mph as the earth orbits the sun. (If you time travel for more than a few seconds and come back to the same spot you will find yourself in space, miles from the earth). You are moving as something like a million mph as the galaxy spins. The Milky Way galaxy is also moving through the universe on a collision course with the Andromeda galaxy.

Many years ago, when wood was in short supply it was a common practice to dig up and reuse coffins.

Quite often the grave diggers would see scratch marks on the underside of the coffin lid, left there by someone who was buried but still alive!

This happened so often, in fact, that all newly buried people had a length of string tied to their finger, leading all the way aboveground where it was tied to a bell.

When someone buried alive would move their hand trying to desperately claw their way out, the bell would ring aboveground.

Those people were called "Dead Ringers".

The men hired to listen for the bells during the night were known to be working the "graveyard shift".

I know about one piece of trivia for almost every AKC registered breed of dog; at least every breed that was registered at the time when I was in fifth grade and had a hyper fixation in dogs, because I really wanted a dog. For example, I could tell you that the mascot of the University of TN (Go Vols!) should be a Black and Tan Coonhound, instead of a Bluetick, because Black and Tans were chiefly bred in Tennessee, whereas the Bluetick was primarily bred in Georgia.

Also, coonhounds were bred for more than hunting racoons; they were also bred to hunt deer, possum, squirrel, and even more ferocious game such as wild boar, bears and even mountain lions! My own Black and Tan, Crockett, would only chase boar, deer and bear. Small game could waltz before him and he didn't care.

Name a dog breed and I can probably tell you one trivia fact about it.

There was a legendary Indian musician named R D Burman who had a Daak naam- Pancham. Reason for naming him Pancham was when he was an infant his father (S D Burman, another legendary musician) said that he sounds like the fifth note of Sur (sa, re, ga, ma, pa, dha, ni, sa) and Pancham means fifth, hence the Daak naam Pancham.

von Detroit fliegt sie nach Buffalo....

Freddy Mercury’s last words were “Pee pee”


There, They're, Their, A, An, Then, Than.... apparently ?


The word "buffalo" can be noun (bison), proper noun (the city in New York), or verb (to bully), so you can make complete sentences by repeating the same word, for example:
Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo, buffalo Buffalo buffalo.

This can be re-written as:
"Bison from New York that are bullied by bison from New York, also bully bison from New York."

I don't know if that statement about bison is true, just that the word buffalo can be used in that way.

Another word this is true for is "police" (both noun and verb). Who police's the police? Police-police police police. Who police's the police-police? Police-police-police police police-police.


The word "buffalo" can be a noun (bison), a proper noun (a city in New York), or a verb (to bully). So whole sentences can be made by repeating the word. For example:

Bison from New York that are bullied by other bison from New York, also bully other bison from New York.

The word "police" can also be either noun or verb, so the same is possible.

If superglue gets stuck on your fingers you need to go get surgery. And if you get kicked in the privates, you cant pee for the next couple of hours


Whale poop is turned into perfume. Same goes for other animal feces as something to smell nice


Like cats (& other animals) PEOPLE can get butt worms too! TY very much Bob's Burgers!


The left part of your brain controls the right side of your body, and vice-versa.


Wombats poop squares.


The ends of shoelaces are called aglets. There the counterpart to the eyelet.


Small single-engine aircraft only need to go about 68-75 mph to get off the ground. They Cruse at an average of 130 mph.

"Natural Flavor", especially raspberry can come from beaver a**l glands

In America, putting your thumb between the index and second finger and telling a child you've got his nose is a game. In Japan, it's an insult


Separate= sep A rat (e)

I've never misspelled the word since


I was watching a DC superhero show with my sister and now I have some amazingly random knowlege:
Wonder Women likes her toilet paper over. I repeat - over. As it should be.


Mike Nesmith's (of the Monkees) mother invented WhiteOut, the typewriter correction fluid.


Castoreum is a flavoring agent used in some high end flavorings and perfumes, often in vanilla or raspberry type scents/flavors.

It is extracted from the a**l glands of beavers.

Makes me think every time I see "natural flavors" in ingredients lists.*

*Castoreum is rarely used now as there much cheaper still-natural alternatives, such as vanillin.


"The Lion King" is based on "Hamlet"


Peppers have sexes. I believe they are able self pollinate but am unsure (this made even more confusing for me). There are male and female peppers determined by the number of chambers in the pepper. Either 3 or 4.


When memorizing the world map. Oman and Yemen are right next to each other. So I came up with a little thing to remember which is which: does Yemen have an island? Yeah man!


I know all the words to Yellow Submarine, not just the refrain. I can spell supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Cats technically walk on their tiptoes.


If you know what a spermologist is then you likely are one.


Quokkas eat their babies, the length between the wrist and elbow is the length of your foot, cupping your hands together over your mouth and saying the words "more rum" in a deep gutteral voice will sound like a toad, the world's largest gold nugget called the Holtermann Nugget and "The Welcome Stranger" was as tall as a man and as wide as a door, hair is dead once it breaches the scalp surface, lice also like clean hair as well as dirty hair, L/R shoes were invented by a shoe cobbler In Philadelphia named William Young in 1818 before that shoes were made mirrored to be straight, bird's nest soup is made of sea swift bird saliva, animals were once given human advantage of trial by peers in which they were dealt with for crimes against their peers or other humans the last known case of this occuring in Libya in 1974.


That humans share a lot of DNA with bananas.


The minimum dynamic hydroplaning speed, in knots, of a tire to be 8.6 times the square root of the tire pressure in pounds. If it's pouring out, assume your tire pressure if you don't know it, to be 25 (square root 5), so 5x9 (8.6 rounded up) is 45, which is about 51 mph. Better to err on the side of caution, and slow down. I think of this every darn time it rains


I know that the second album of Imagine Dragons was called Thunder and was released on the 27th of April 2017.

I also know that to remember SOHCAHTOA in maths I remember "Some old hippy, caught another hippy, tripping on acid."


I also know how to spell supercalifragilisticexpialidocious from memory because you just break it down into small words that are easy to spell.


Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of the number 13


"75% of car accidents occur within a 25-mile radius of where you live", remembered from my driving course almost 40 years ago. Probably advice to not be lulled into a false sense of security when driving close to home.

So... avoided contributing to that statistic by driving really fast when was out of range LMAO


Rats don't have a gallbladder.


There's more time between the Stegosaurus and the T-Rex than between the T-Rex and you


The vowels in Ancient Egyptian? We don't know them for certain. They are estimated based upon Coptic - its descendant languages and dialects. Vowels are not something that you see in a lot of ancient written languages, Ancient Egyptian included. It's why there are multiple names for the Gods - is his name Seth, Set, Sutekh, Setekh? It's not really any of them, it's what is written, which is none of those; but unless he pops down and goes "Oi, get it right! It's pronounced ...", we give our best guess.


That there are 365 days in a regular year

That bathings aren't healthy

that the water is attracted to the moon by gravity and that that causes ebb and flow

that chocolate milk comes from browncows and strawberry milk from pink cows

That life isn't fair

And that yellow snow is Citroen flavoured
