    The 'crack' of a whip is due to the end of the whip breaking the sound barrier.

    P.S. We are doing real facts right?

    Termites can eat through a piece of wood in half the time when listening to rock/metal music.

    Agreed. Please to be stop threadcrapping Chuck Norris unfunny joke makers.

    New fact: The nuclear power plant which is very much in the news in Japan right now is about 40 years old and was only designed to survive an earthquake measuring 8.3 on the Richter scale. It's doing pretty good, all things considered.

    Chuck Norris can slam a revolving door.

    Silence Heretics, do you want The Emperor (Chuck) to hear you and condemn your souls to the Basillica of Torment? Do you?!

    #// Here's an annoying fact I just read, in light of all of the fraud that is caught by the DWP in the UK, no-one has ever had a strike (can't claim due to fraud) made against them, *bangs head on desk*.

    In 1995 a Japanese trawler sank because a Russian cargo plane dropped a living cow from 30,000 feet, I cannot say whether that cow exploded or not though, I doubt it was overly happy though.

    3 people die every year, testing if a 9 volt battery works on their tongue

    Can I have source on that 9 volt thing? I heard 12-15.

    edit: Jipa, weak hearts. I remember hearing several years back that more people die from testing 9V batteries against their lips than do from Ecstasy every year, but I've not got a source on either.

    Thunder is caused by the "lightening" super-heating the air around it, so fast it causes a sonic boom.

    The bottom fin on an outboard boat motor is called a skeg.
    When lit, a .50 BMG shell filled with primers and gun powder can make a 2 foot crater in the ground.

    Yea but all those sperm are the same, so with data compression that 1587GB could be not much larger than the original.

    Impregnating her with a zip file might not work so well though.

    It also fails to take packet loss into account, 1587GB maybe sent but on average less than 37.5MB is received.
