Original Starting post for this thread:
I was trying to remember which eggs in the refrigerator were hard boiled and which were not, when an idea for a thread topic occurred to me.

Does anybody have any fun facts to share? You know, those always fun and often useless facts that just might come in handy to know someday?

For example....

Did you know that if you were to take all of the veins from your body and lay them end to end along the equator that you would die?

Fun Fact:

Pharmaceuticals played an enormous role in the outcome of WW2 in the European theater.

In the later stages of WWII (mid-1943 onwards) Nazi Germany resorted to methamphetamine (under the name - really - Pervitin) in an effort to improve the attentiveness, focus and wakefulness of exhausted personnel (especially Luftwaffe pilots). This was initially very successful; however, the effects of long-term meth use had not been well-documented and as is always the case with meth, everything comes crashing down.

Hitler himself was on huge amounts of methamphetamine (among many, many other controlled substances) for about the last 18 months of the war, right up until his bitter end, along with most senior Nazi officials.

The collapse of Nazi Germany is closely tied to the collapse of the methamphetamine supply. Without the "gas" to keep running, a cutoff of the supply of Pervitin meant a unit suddenly had nobody who could stay awake, focused or basically do anything useful other than fight with each other for the remaining pills. In the last days of the Third Reich, there was none to be found, which contributed heavily to the incredible slaughter that was the Battle of Berlin.

Ahh... remember the episode of Family Ties where Alex Keaton was on meth? A light-hearted approach to the topic. They didn't CALL it meth - they called it speed, as it was commonly known at the time. His father told him to stop, so he did. Apparently it's that easy.

Fun fact: Tsutomu Yamaguchi died in 2010 at the age of 91. He was famous for something rather unique.

On August 6, 1945, he survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, where he was visiting for work. He was rather seriously burned, but 2 days later, went home to where he figured he'd be safe. Nagasaki.

He was visiting his supervisor describing the Hiroshima bombing when Nagasaki was bombed. This time he was not seriously injured, but he could no longer get treatment for his burns and began to develop infections.

Just a random story about the only person in history to have survived two nuclear attacks.

"Some people never develop beyond this stage. "

I was already thinking that before I saw that you wrote it.

Fun Fact: Humans are deuterostomes, which means that when they develop in the womb, the anus forms before any other opening. Which basically means at one point, you were nothing but an asshole.

Some people never develop beyond this stage.

Well that's like saying "monster" rhymes with "stir". Or "hamster".

You need to rhyme the whole word. Otherwise purple would rhyme with dimple, silver with sliver, orange and month with... um... still nothing...

While I have long since seen that list of the "only 4 words in English without perfect rhymes", as a matter of fact, there are many more. And yes, stealing from wikipedia.
