Did you know that when you sneeze, air is expelled from your body at over 300km/h. That's faster than a hurricane, and most tornadoes!!

Did you know that the submarine which helped save the crew of the Sunken submarine USS Squalus by detecting its emergency beacon was sunk by the Japanese in World War II.

The crew of that sub were then put aboard a Japanese carrier, which was in turn sunk by the refurbished USS Squalus, renamed the Sailfish?

Did you know that two people were working on a prototype telephone at the same time. The only reason that one type of phone is recorded, is because it was patented a few months before the other! :( :D

Oh, i got the pun alright. I just found your choice of words more attractive than amusing.

I learned this a few days ago

Did you know that 10 years ago a submarine by the name of USS Stonewall Jackson (SSBN-634) was decommissioned.

Memebers of the old RPG might remember the CSS Stonewall was a Heavy Torpedo Cruiser.

I get the feeling this page may end up causing something similar to the 'this or that' wars we had this summer. I think Hellkite remembers that. It was kinda fun. :lol:

Did you know that Joshua L. Chamberlain attained the rank of Major General of the Maine National Guard, severed as Governor of Maine for 4 years (4 terms) straight, and died in 1914.

Titus Flavius Vespasianus

(b. A.D. 9, d. A.D. 79, emperor A.D. 69-79) restored peace and stability to an empire in disarray following the death of Nero in A.D. 68. In the process he established the Flavian dynasty as the legitimate successor to the Imperial throne. Although we lack many details about the events and chronology of his reign, Vespasian provided practical leadership and a return to stable government - accomplishments which, when combined with his other achievements, make his emperorship particularly notable within the history of the Principate.

that was quite a rally Harrie we had the post flew like the wind then :wink:

Did you know that the yo-yo was invented by the Romans? I imagine it caused quite a swing in Roman politics . . . :lol:

Sorry Phoenix

It is believed that the yo-yo most likely originated in China. The first historical mention of the yo-yo, however, was from Greece in the year 500 B.C. These ancient toys were made out of wood, metal, or painted terra cotta disks and called just that, a disc. It was customary, when a child turned of age, to offer toys of their youth to certain gods. Due to the fragile nature of the material, it is presumed that the disks made of terra cotta (clay) were used for this purpose rather than for actual play. A vase painting from this time period shows a Greek youth playing with a yo-yo. Such vases, as well as an actual terra cotta disk can be found in the National Museum of Athens, Greece.

Did you know that Ice Ages are caused when the earth's orbit 'wobbles' every few millenia. Instead of a normal orbit around the sun, the Earth's orbit becomes elliptical, causing snow & ice to pile up more in winter and not melt as much in summer. And, technically, we're in the next Ice Age..?
