    I wasn't aware so much of the American population consisted of those living in Arkansas and the foothills of the Virginny mountains. *evil laugh*

    yeah, i can tell by your toothless grin which "half" you belong to :)

    That dark energy you speak of, tempest, is what will allow the universe to contract finally, if it crosses critical mass. I don't know how it allows the univ to expand, though!!!
    (Now, i'd better get out of here, before Rickson comes and pounds me for talking Big Bang theory.)

    Contrary to popular belief, hair does not grow back darker and thicker after it has been shaved.

    Only 1% of bacteria cause disease in humans.

    The American Automobile Association was founded for the sole purpose of warning motorists of police speed traps.

    more on dark energy

    The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) will be able to survey the entire sky every three nights — something never done before. ... Expected to see its "first light" in 2014, the 8.4-meter LSST will survey the entire visible sky deeply in multiple colors every week with its 3 billion-pixel digital camera, probing the mysteries of dark matter and dark energy and opening a movie-like window on objects that change or move. With the telescope scientists will be able to quickly find Earth-threatening asteroids and exploding stars called supernovas and will be able to map out 100 billion galaxies, according to researchers.

    If you drop a golf ball off the side of a 78 metre cliff it will take approximately 4 seconds to reach the water below at which point it will be traveling at approximately 39ms^-1.

    Scientists have recently calculated the energy released in the big bang explosion to be approximately 1.34 CNrhk (Chuck Norris round house kicks)

    orange - dinge, syringe, tinge.

    Gazing at the evening sky, she saw a tinge
    of red, yellow and flecks of orange.

    month:
    It was that month
    when hobbits grunt.

    C'mon, you took this from some website/email or something. Admit it. I've seen this plenty times before, and there are some other words, too.

    Actually, I took it from when someone told me in the real world :p... I do admit to looking it up after that though. I found that there's supposedly nothing rhyming with "silver" either.

    Surely lots of these interesting facts are being sourced from websites and such, no?

    I'm not so sure that month and grunt really rhyme...

    That (aging brain cells) would account for certain things on this forum -- the previously mentioned dark energy, for example.

    • Chuck Norris sheds his skin twice a year.
    • Crop circles are Chuck Norris' way of telling the world that sometimes corn needs to lie down.
    • Most people have 23 pairs of chromosomes. Chuck Norris has 72... and they're all poisonous.
    • If you ask Chuck Norris what time it is, he always says, "Two seconds 'til." After you ask, "Two seconds 'til what?" he roundhouse kicks you in the face.
    • Chuck Norris drives an ice cream truck covered in human skulls.
    • When Chuck Norris sends in his taxes, he sends blank forms and includes only a picture of himself, crouched and ready to attack. Chuck Norris has not had to pay taxes, ever.

    • There is no theory of evolution, just a list of creatures Chuck Norris allows to live.
    • What was going through the minds of all of Chuck Norris' victims before they died? His shoe.
    • If you spell Chuck Norris in Scrabble, you win. Forever.
    • Chuck Norris originally appeared in the "Street Fighter II" video game, but was removed by Beta Testers because every button caused him to do a roundhouse kick. When asked bout this "glitch," Norris replied, "That's no glitch."
    • Fool me once, shame on you. Fool Chuck Norris once and he will roundhouse you in the face.
    • The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Chuck Norris played in second grade.
    • Chuck Norris once shot down a German fighter plane with his finger, by yelling, "Bang!"
    • Chuck Norris once bet NASA he could survive re-entry without a spacesuit. On July 19th, 1999, a naked Chuck Norris re-entered the earth's atmosphere, streaking over 14 states and reaching a temperature of 3000 degrees. An embarrassed NASA publically claimed it was a meteor, and still owes him a beer.
    • Chuck Norris has two speeds: Walk and Kill.
    • Someone once tried to tell Chuck Norris that roundhouse kicks aren't the best way to kick someone. This has been recorded by historians as the worst mistake anyone has ever made.
    • Contrary to popular belief, America is not a democracy, it is a Chucktatorship.

    • In the Bible, Jesus turned water into wine. But then Chuck Norris turned that wine into beer.

    • Chuck Norris discovered a new theory of relativity involving multiple universes in which Chuck Norris is even more badass than in this one.

    • According to the Encyclopedia Brittanica, the Native American "Trail of Tears" has been redefined as anywhere that Chuck Norris walks.

    • When Chuck Norris goes to donate blood, he declines the syringe, and instead requests a hand gun and a bucket.
    • There are no steroids in baseball. Just players Chuck Norris has breathed on.
    • Chuck Norris once challenged Lance Armstrong in a "Who has more testicles?" contest. Chuck Norris won by 5.
    • Chuck Norris was the fourth wise man, who gave baby Jesus the gift of beard, which he carried with him until he died. The other three wise men were enraged by the preference that Jesus showed to Chuck's gift, and arranged to have him written out of the bible. All three died soon after of mysterious roundhouse-kick related injuries.
    all of this has been copy/pasted from here.

    Thanks for caring man. I am not bored at all though. I am reading all the great wisdoms in this thread and around Odds/Ends and absorbing it, while listening to Shimakura Chiyoko on youtube, so I am actually having a fantastic time.

    I have done some ad hoc psychoanalysis earlier this week here and there, but haven’t found space for a new office yet. It’s tough to operate now that the original office is gone (burned down by the mob patients with unexpressed anger?) , Dr. Zets took off for the islands, and other doctors from my practice have apparently been intimidated with threats from hopeless patients. And I wasn’t around when the office got burned down, so don’t even know exactly what happened there. Any tips?;)

    First off, I'd suggest you to listen to some Nana Mouskouri instead of "ShimaChi"

    Secondly, I'd recommend that you start a club of some sort. Maybe become the leader of the a Babolat Alliance in the Tennis Warehouse Clan War

    Best of luck to you.

    By “tips”, I actually was fishing for hints as to what happened to my psycho office. As for clubs, I am actually a member of many, including the original “Babolat Alliance” under “Racquets”, as well as “Pure Storm” and “Rubberbands”, to name a few. As for starting them, I have launched a few, but they all seem to have had some difficulty surviving… I don’t know why, because they were all peaceful, like in the psycho office, I remember I just said “this a quiet space where you can talk about your issues”. Oh well. Maybe I’ll think of something, thanks for your faith.

    As for Nana, I just checked her out on Youtube, and no offense, but I'm gonna stick with Chiyoko for now at least.:neutral:

    I thought the "original" Babolat Alliance died?

    Pure Storm with Rubberbands don't mix well, no?

    I think your psycho office died because they (TW Staff) did not want to offend the APA guidelines for whatever (read: "no") reasons.

    You didn't like Nana Mouskouri? That's too bad.
    It's not everyday you hear a voice like that. A voice that somebody once told me that he'd give up all of his belongings so that he could hear her voice forever. He told me that her voice made him feel like it was his mother, sister, and lover, singing to him all at once.

    ^ what I meant to say is... go listen to more Nana... NOW!

    I am not going to listen to Nana or any such Spanish grandmother, because it seems she is not any good. And so please don’t presume to tell me what to do, either. On the contrary, I suggest that you get tuned into Chiyoko and that way find some peace for your soul. Neeeeee……… okashii deshyoo wakai koro….!@! Chiyoko ROX = sugoi hito

    And I don’t need rubberbands anymore, I like hearing the “chtsk”. I’d love to start a club, by the way, as you suggest, I just don’t see an accumulation of issues (just this moment) to build it around (eng.?).

    So I started a knowledge-sharing club. So hopefully you know more about tennis balls than you do about music, or maybe you have some accumulated questions about the world.:arrow:

    I am so proud of my immeasurable contributions to the sanity of the human race.

    BTW, how do you get these stats * ?? Last time you gave them, you were first and i was a distant 5th or 10th.

    I was in the running, but have not recvd or been notified by Sobad of winning.
    I was nominated and voted for, for my tireless contribs to this and the Word Assoc thread.
    (I know nothing about tennis).

    I think you might be confusing the table presented here with the one that was presented at an earlier time in W.A. I will give you my useless answer to your useless question though - click "replies" field of any thread to get those stats.

    Did we forget to do the 2007 awards presentation?:oops:

    i was expecting something more in line of the Masters Cup Shanghai presentation, with *cough* Marat Safin *cough* presenting the awards for most useless poster.
    For other awards, such as most helpful person, Federer would present.

    a wise pilot from the show Blackadder once said a plane is much like a woman, you get in her 5 times a day and take her to heaven and back...

    Newtons laws of motion do not work in the presence of strong gravitational fields or when the speed of objects is approaching the 3x10^6 ms^-1 (the speed of light).

    1 mol of an element is equal to 6.02x10^23 particles of that element and the relative atomic mass of that element in grams

    women blink twice as much as men

    in 1987 an airline company saved $40,000
    by removing 1 olive from every 1st class meal

    more people in China speak English than in America

    Apparently, Bank of America will not cash Western union money orders. Even if you have an account with plenty to cover them. I think the lady was full of crap but <shrug> whatever :)
