-Ketchup was originally Chinese, and it was made from fish. Tomato Ketchup was only one among many variations created when the recipe got to the West.

-Fishes are know to rain from the sky on rare occasions around the Indian Ocean. It is believed this is caused by particularly strong typhoons that pick them up from the surface of the sea. However, no conclussive proof of why this happens has been found yet.

When you are in the bowels of a U.S. Navy ship, it's best to turn off your phone (or put it in airplane mode) so that it isn't continuously searching for a signal, thus running down the battery.

Ants beat humans at agriculture by a longshot. The leafcutter ants cut leaves (shocking), but not to eat - instead the leaves are used to grow a special fungus that is used as a food source. The leafcutters also grow toxins on their bodies which fight off diseases and parasites that threaten their delicious delicious fungus. Other ants use chemicals to tranquilize aphids. They keep them docile, feed them, and drink their sugary secretions.

Did you know?

There is a theory that a supervolcano in Indonesia that erupted circa 70,000 years ago might have reduced the human population to only 1,000 breeding pairs, thus accounting for humanity's relative genetic homogeneity. The volcano is theorized to have caused a nuclear-winter-type event lasting 6-10 years and a further 1,000 year cooling effect.

Although the terrorist organisation with the most redheads would probably be the IRA (Not featured in that picture. ...Probably.)

The average age for Tunisian women to get married is 28.


The Slow Loris is one of the few mammals which is venomous. In addition, it is the only mammal which is both venomous and poisonous at the same time. Slow lorises produce a toxin on the inside of its elbows, which it smears on its young to prevent them from being eaten. In addition, it will lick these patches to put the poison in its mouth, giving it a venomous bite used for self defense.

Hey, uh, I think you're forgetting the whole "ground floor" and "13th floor" which aren't counted. I believe you'll find there are 33 floors or "levels". Just like Freemasonry!

Stop nitpicking!

Spoiler:
Also, the fact that it's actually 102 stories tall is obviously irrelevant.

Also, gnomes weigh 21 grams less than a similarly-sized halfling because of their absence of soul.

Corollary 1: Naturally ginger gnomes are one-in-a-billion rarities, as the divide-by-zero error causes them to implode their mother's wombs.

Corollary 2: Carrot Top is actually a spriggan.

In real life it's a sign of very very bad luck.

You inhale, on average, about 700,000 of your own skin flakes a day.

But where do the skin cells come from in abandoned places, then? That's the creepy thing...

That tidbit was true in the same way that houses are "made of" fiberglass.

Dust in homes, offices, and other human environments contains small amounts of plant pollen, human and animal hairs, textile fibers, paper fibers, minerals from outdoor soil, human skin cells, burnt meteorite particles and many other materials which may be found in the local environment.
