Some facts are just jaw-dropping amazing.

Post them here, if you know any.
My first :


A healthy man constantly produces 1500 brand new sperm in his testicles PER SECOND !!!!! and when he ejaculates, he lets fly with 250,000,000 of the little buggers.

Only one of the 250 million would produce you. Any of the others would have produced someone quite different.
And that's just PART of the odds against your existence.

Every seven years, a human being is no longer the same person he used to be as every single cell in his body has died and been replaced at least once.
and there are more bacteria in your gut than cells in your body.

And you can't define the point of transition because the change happens continuously.

And you can kill them all with certain medications, leaving you unable to digest food properly.

There are 15 hotels in Greenland. Plus maybe some bed and breakfasts.

Visiting shops in Totnes in South Devon: "there was a little more in the way of New Age crystals and that kind of thing than I personally require. "
Then on next page: "there is a limit to how much I will pay for shampoo, even for someone who has given me children."

It's British, you see, but not in any Monty Python John Cleese ranting kind of way. Enjoy.

In Afghanistan and Iraq it takes 250,000 bullets (three tons of ammunition) to kill each insurgent.

Most of that is suppressive fire, meant to keep the enemy's head down. Very few rounds on a battlefield are aimed shots.

Well, no, those kills are righteous. If they don't grow up, they don't grow up to be terrorists.

Well, they still waste an awful lot of ammo. If they made the kids line up, how many could they kill with one hi-velocity bullet?

Fuck! Talk about derailing a thread in short order. How about keeping on topic?

The sun’s core is so hot that a piece of it the size of a pinhead would give off enough heat to kill a person 160 kilometres away.

Amazing fact. One high-velocity armor piercing round can penetrate up to twenty feet of "soft" material.

Amazing fact. Post 3 by Svartalf is widely believed by intelligent people, in spite of the fact that some human cells last a lifetime, and others are recycled in weeks. Why do people believe such urban myths?

Another urban myth is the bullshit about fingernails growing after death. They don't. The skin however, shrinks to expose more nail, giving that misleading impression.
