Did you know that the longest name officially used by a person is:

Adolph Blaine Chrales David Earl Frederick Gerald Hubert Irvin John Kenneth Llowd Martin Nero Oliver Paul Quincy Randolph Sherman Thomas Uncas Victor William Xerxes Yancy Zeus Wolfeschlegelsteinhausenbergerdorft Sr.?

Notice the pattern?

And there are 1,929,770,126,028,800 different colour combinations on a Rubik's Cube

The longest name of a hill is

Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaunga horonukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu. (Without the space, of course)

Oh, and that is the name of a New Zealand hill, might I add.

And finally in this set of extremely interesting, yet useless facts is that it takes three months to make one episode of The Simpsons.


Looking for any other kind of totally useless (yet not) things? Try searching for 'Chindogu'.

Chindogu are totally un-useless Japanese inventions; and some are very funny.

Thanks for reading

No she is actually a four year long member of macdonalds who has a fantasy about her and willow (the dwarf from the film willow).
Who also thinks that i take my nickname seriously. Anyway enough talk of fools and lets start talking about classic games like Star Wars Tie Fighter and X-wing.

The reason halfpint is having a go at him is because therik called him a chimp! Not 'cos he's a jat!

I learnt that today in my forensic science lecture, as well as tips on commiting crimes such as to eat before you rob, as there was a case where a burgular who ate some cheese in a house he was stealing from and the police identified him from the teeth marks in the cheese.
