The words "Winter is Coming" don't actually appear in any of George R.R. Martin's novels. They were invented by HBO as a catchy tag phrase for the TV series.

This "fact" is totally bogus, of course.

Yeah, stars in real life are all different sizes, so fusion obviously defies the laws of physics, amiright?

I'm now picturing an owlbear male stripper, wearing nothing but a giant stuffed bear's head.

It's a little-known fact, but Warrior is actually a much better class than Fighter, too. Because not everyone wants to have to keep track of stuff like bravery and armor training and weapon training. All those bonuses all over just really interfere with how I see the fighter, which is a guy who does his thing without the need for a lot of pesky plus signs. So, for me, playing a warrior is obviously the superior choice, and every team would be much happier recruiting my warrior, rather than Sam's fighter over there.

So does Lance Armstrong, who got busted for doping (so not a paladin), but he rode ALL THE TIME (cavalier)!

Prior to his Hollywood career, actor/director Woody Allen served in the Pacific during WWII, where he amassed the largest number of single-handed Japanese fatalities -- using only a knife.

It's a little known fact that I am the CEO of KirthCon International, of which Paizo Publishing is actually a wholly-owned subsidiary. Therefore I indirectly control these boards, and demand that you pro-Greenpeace people shut up.

If you don't believe me, you're welcome to Google it.

So, I cast fabricate on dirt to turn it into adamantine -- it's a little-known fact, but they're both made from, you know, sub-atomic particles. It just takes a lot of dirt, so that you have equal gp value, right?

It's a CoC game -- everyone playing obviously supports fascism because they're HPL fans.

The Empire State Building is 31 stories tall.

In French, Duquesne is pronounced something like "Dookoo." Christopher Lee's character in the Star Wars prequels is named after the fort.

You know, recent medical studies have shown that time zone transference, A.K.A. jet lag, not only can be very upsetting to one's metabolism, but also directly correlates to the loss of hair follicles.

Oh yeah, and after all the game of billiards was invented by the ancient Venetians, Norm, and it gained popularity after a group of Benedictine Monks invented felt.

You can make it from Boston to Italy in 8 hours 37 minutes 22 seconds with a good tailwind. Well, unless you take the polar route in which case you run into those convex currents created by the Aurora Borealis.

Norm, it's a little known fact that the word Florida comes from the language of the Okie Canokie Indians and it means, literally, "place where the old people come to sweat."

There are many theories as to why the Florida orange is far superior to its California counterpart. I personally think it's the trace mineral elements in the Floridian water. That's obviously due to the frequency of typhoons in the nitrogen rich alligator guano. Furthermore, there's three points...

You see, the roots of physical aggression in the male of the species is found right here, in the old DNA molecule itself. Right up here at about one 'o clock as I recall. Oh yes Diane, fascinating -- hold on to your hat, because the very letters, DNA, are an acronym for the words 'Dames Are Not Aggressive.'

You take your average whale's intestines and stretch them out... You're looking at three miles and change.

It's a little known fact, but the Founders actually intended for every citizen to own a complete nuclear arsenal, in case they need to exercise their God-given right to destroy the planet at will. The only reason that isn't spelled out in the 2nd amendment is that they hadn't invented nuclear weapons by the time the Bill of Rights was ratified.

It's a little known fact that cows were domesticated in Mesopotamia and were also used in China as guard animals for the Forbidden City.

- It's a little known fact that smartest animal is a pig. Scientists say if pigs had thumbs and a language, they could be trained to do simple manual labor. They give you 20-30 years of loyal service and then at their retirement dinner you can eat them.

- I wonder if you know that the harp is a predecessor of the modern day guitar. Early minstrels were much larger people. In fact, they had hands the size of small dogs.

- Everyone is the Swiss Army owns a Swiss Army Knife. That's why no one messes with Switzerland.

- If you were to go back in history and take every president, you'll find that the numerical value of each letter in their name was equally divisible into the year in which they were elected. By my calculations, our next president has to be named Yellnick McWawa.

- If memory serves, the umbilical chord is 90% postassium.

- They did a study between postal workers and chimpanzees. They proved chimps were 32% slower. Of course, they were better with public relations.

- There's no rule against postal workers not dating women. It just works out that way.

- It's a little known fact that the tan became popular in what is known as the Bronze Age.
