Actually, the above isn't a useless fact at all - it is a VERY important fact.

Here's mine:
At a glance, the Celsius scale makes more sense than the Fahrenheit scale for temperature measuring. But its creator, Anders Celsius, was an oddball scientist. When he first developed his scale, he made freezing 100 degrees and boiling 0 degrees, or upside down. No one dared point this out to him, so fellow scientists waited until Celsius died to change the scale.

(I'm such a scientist geek, aren't I? )

Tell me you're actually serious....


Know those yellow aviator sunglasses? How hippies used to wear them all the time in the 60s? It was so no one could see their red eyes and tell that they were stoned.

Rock band Led Zeppelin were disallowed off the plane in Singapore in 1972. Kitaro also happened to be asked to turn back at the airport some time later.

Reason - their hair was too long.
