    Link: 30 Utterly Useless Facts - They say that recent evidence shows that 36% of internet facts are filthy lies. Still fun though.

    Some true, some false, some useless, some "self evident"...

    A couple were interesting. :-)

    Statistics:
    50% of them are true
    50% of them are false
    and 50% of them you just can`t tell!

    My brain just exploded over a couple of those. Especially the one about your keyboard. I have no idea why.

    The Hitler one is definitely false.
    @RdDan: it`s "mostly true" eh? Adolf usually ate veggies, but some meats too. If he went to dinner and they put a steak in front of him? He`d eat it! But mostly he had non-meat meals. At least before he lost his mind...

    My right`s the bigger one. Huh.
    @carmium: PHOTOS! Or better yet, invite me over and I`ll offer my "expert opinion" :-)

    On another chatsite? I listed the 3 things I`m at expert in:
    1: Boobies!
    2: Cats!
    3: Um, wait, I could have sworn there were 3 things... :-/

    Someone replied: 3 = vaginas!
    I said: But I don`t know anything about West Virginia! North Dakota perhaps...

    @robthelurker: They are funny, I gave it a "solid 3".
    No memory from "the dope" or other reasons? I gots brain damage... among other ailments...

    Where do they get these facts? It`s common knowledge that Hitler`s favorite dish was puppies with kitten sauce.

    #429: Disney is not a country.
    #376: Not by a human.
    #481: So, THAT explains my insomnia!
    #497: What? How can it fly THROUGH a raindrop without hitting it?
    #503: That would be true for nearly all tv programs.
    #535: Duh! How else could they offer the service?
    #561: Of course! There are no vowels.

    (Sorry, I couldn`t help myself...)

    @chalket: "What? How can it fly THROUGH a raindrop without hitting it?"

    David Hu proposes that this is due to the insect`s low mass compared to the raindrops -- the raindrop imparts little force onto the mosquito because it loses so little speed and momentum. This theory was further tested using small styrofoam spheres, which merely deformed the raindrops that hit them, slowing them down very little.

    Hitler wasn`t a vegetarian, that`s a myth. Stephen Fry told me so.

    @richanddead
    Your link shows how mosquitoes can fly in the rain, but it also shows quite clearly that they HIT THE RAINDROP. I ask again, how can a mosquito fly THROUGH a raindrop without hitting it?

    @10Bears
    I meant that OF COURSE you can`t write a word using only the bottom row, as there are NO VOWELS on the bottom row. The words you list all have the vowel "Y", which I shouldn`t have to tell you is NOT on the bottom row. So... was there some point you wanted to make?

    ** Did you ever wake up in the morning,
    with a zomby woof behind your eyes? **

    Whoa, thanks for the flashback, Red! Overnight Sensation is one of the best albums ever.

    (for the uninitiated... Zomby Woof)

    Well, I am proof of #481, and I resent the use of that dweeb to illustrate it. I`ll bet he rises with the rooster-a-doodle-doo every morning.

    It is a common mistake to say that hitler was a vegetarian.
