All right, here we go...did you know:


Piping for tap water was in use as early as 2500 BC by the Egyptians?

The official record for sleep deprivation is 264 hours (11 days) without sleep, held by Randy Gardner?

Newton's Laws, which generally apply in most day-to-day interactions with physical objects, are not valid on an atomic level? In other words: believing in gravity means you must view two contrary versions of physics as correct.

On that note, did you know there are still people who believe the Earth is flat? The Flat Earth Society

There are a myriad of inventions that are operable with steam power - including cars, aircraft, ships, and motorcycles? How's that for reusable fuel? (and who doesn't want to operate something like this: http://www.gravestmor.com/strips/jas...rello%2001.jpg)

The strongest muscle based on its weight is the masseter? With all muscles of the jaw working together it can close the teeth with a force as great as 55 pounds (25 kilograms) on the incisors or 200 pounds (90.7 kilograms) on the molars.

Blue eyes are the most recessive eye color, but green eyes are the rarest?
