Did you know that?

  • The word clip has opposite meanings
  • There is more crime in cities that spend more on police (why else would you spend more on police?)
  • There's no medicine that can destroy viruses because they are nonliving. Drugs for viral illnesses can only treat symptoms (aka make you feel better)
  • People would be much happier if they learned to forgive
  • Uranium is not something you should be around.
  • It is impossible to travel over the speed of light (sigh)
  • If you lived on Mars, it would take several hours to load a web page from Earth

  1. I don't know about that third one. Anything can be destroyed. Sure, you can't kill a virus, and most medicine doesn't do much against them, but I do believe there is some kinds of medicine that actually destroy viruses.
    Also, where you got these from:
    1. I don't know.
    2. That math book.
    3. Somewhere.
    4. Everywhere.
    5. Wikipedia, most likely, because it has nice facts like that.
    6. Your attempts to do so.
    7. Me.

    Interesting stuff!
    Also, while the word verification is annoying, it is great for creating names for fictional characters.
