This the thread where you can post the random facts that you know for some reason. This might need to go to sub-talk, but what the hell?

I'll start...

Did you know that, three bowl movements a day are considered healthy for a normal person?

I liked this joke found on youtube and I think it was by Dave or Mitch, can't remember. I had always wondered about that soda and this is also to the people who wonder about teh sprite too^^


You know how they say that all that sprite is made out of is lemon and lime?
I tried making that stuff at home...it's more to it than that.
Me and my friend were eating and I asked him "want some more homemade sprite?"
He hit it back and said "Not till you find out what the fuck else is in it!"

Yeah I was laughing my butt off for minutes on end and it made me think that I did not know that at all, I had long forgot about finding out what was really in that soda. I know about the Nut. Facts but you just can't go by that -_-;

Oh and other things

Did you know that news stations are smaller than they seem?
Americans have a 66.7 age life span for the average?
