I thought I would start a random facts thread...
Just stuff you find interesting

For instance
Did you know...

The more you know, the easier it is for you to learn new things. Also, it seems as the the brain has unlimited compacity for knowlege and information

Heh, He was well known for his ring.

Speaking of which, Did you know that the original use for a prince albert was for the placement of a mans 'organ', as the pants were so tight, to hide the bulge, they would have a hook on the inside of them, and the tailor would ask, 'do you hang to the left, or to the right?'.

Did you know that all spiders are venomous except for two small families that lack venom glands? Also, they are NOT poisonous, eating one can't hurt you, unless it bites you on its way down. Wink

^So... I'm guessing their poison is only truly poisonous if it enters the bloodstream? And that it's not acidic or, if it is, it isn't strong enough to be absorbed through the skin or lining of the internal organs making up the digestive track prior to being melted with stomach acid?

^^^Did you know that Pope Formosus was judged by his sucessor Stephen VI in a formal trial, they sat him and put him his papal vests even when he was dead and when he was found guilty they threw his corpse to the river?

And then when he was finally buried, they unburied him later just to be beheaded by Sergius III?

^^^yes, and there is a species of spider with the common name "daddy long-legs" that are actually spiders (Pholcid family). People often confuse them. It's also a myth that they have the strongest venom in the world but have too small of fangs to penetrate (this applies to both huntsmen and Pholcidae).

Did you know that a horse doesn't recognize things it sees in either eye, that's why you lead them on one side, it doesn't cross over in their brain. If a horse sees you with its left eye, you look a completely different person in its right eye.
