    86. You can see the back of your own head in some parts of the universe as time and light are so curved. The universe is neither flat, nor football shaped - it looks like a flat-sided trumpet, German physicists believe.


    89. Continuing in this cheery vein, more than 1.2 million people die in traffic accidents worldwide each year. The first was Bridget Driscoll, knocked down by a car travelling at 12mph in London on 17 August 1896. The coroner recorded a verdict of accidental death, and warned: "This must never happen again."


    i thought those two were the most interesting. i didn`t know a lot of that stuff.

    and what do you have against the prez, someone??

    I didn`t know, but was not surprised by:
    5. 52% of households have five or more remote controls.

    I knew:
    22. George W Bush got the highest number of votes for president of any candidate in US history, in November 2004.
    23. John Kerry got the second highest number.
    56. The Shining is the "perfect scary movie", according to researchers, who have come up with a scientific formula for such things. They identified the isolated setting, escalating music and chase scenes as some of the key elements in its success.
    67. It`s 30 years since the world`s first barcode was used. It was on a 10-pack of Wrigley`s Juicy Fruit at a supermarket in Ohio. The gum is now an exhibit in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC.

    82. Alan Smithee is a prolific director of film stinkers. His is the name directors use if a film is recut by the studio against their wishes. The alias was first used on the 1969 western, Death of a Gunfighter. Its origins are somewhat murky, but one theory goes that it is an anagram of "The Alias Men."

    And there were some that I knew in general without the specific numbers attached.
