General Knowledge: Trivia Edition

Post by 3mptylord on Tue Jun 21, 2011 11:40 pm

Thought it'd be nice to compile a list to things that belong in the trivia section of general knowledge. Smile

I'll start;
• Hot water freezes faster than cold water.
• Christ isn't Jesus' surname, it's his title.

If all good things come to an end then we're living in a world where evil wins. 

If there once was love then maybe something survived. If we find a single diamond in the rough then it's worth it. Through a thousand tears if there's one drop of love then it's worth it.

Gravy granules are made by leaving a cow in a room with a large packet of silica gel for several hours. Once very dry, it's ground down using oversized sand paper.

Google is in the dictionary [verb; to google, googled, googling]. But that's probably too common knowledge to be considered trivia. Tongue

Kylie Minogue is the most groped waxwork at Madame Tussauds.

One out of every 70 people people who pick their nose eat what they find.

Charlie Chaplin had his feet insured for £33,497.

Laughing can burn off six calories a minute.

Cherophobia is a fear of fun.

Leaving the house without any underwear on is a crime in Thailand.

A lot of lovemaking can unblock a stuffy nose; it can help combat asthma and hay fever.

Workers in a Las Vegas hospital were suspended for placing bets on when patients would die.

The electric chair was invented by a dentist.

Tuesday is the most productive day of the working week.

The velocity of your cough can be up to 60mph, but the mighty sneeze can reach up to 100mph.

I think you missed a number. Tongue

McDonalds sells McNuggets in packs of 6, 9, and 20. If you want 43 McNuggets exactly with none left over, you're screwed, but if you want an number larger than that you're set.

Incidentally, if they happened to sell them in boxes of 137, 902, and 417 then you can make any number over 12781 but you cannot make that exact number

A particular brand of American baby food failed to take of in South Africa for one important reason.

The baby food in question was sold in jars which featured the image of a child on the front. At the time in which this brand first reached South Africa, a large number of South Africans were illiterate and so relied on images on food packages to explain what was inside them. Since there was a baby on the jar, it was assumed that the food inside was infact human baby.

QI also said that Earth has two natural satellites.

But good facts. Grin
