Modern english defines a billion as one thousand million (1,000,000,000). Many other languages define a billion to be one million million (1,000,000,000,000).

The Guinness Book of World Records itself holds a world record, as the best-selling copyrighted series. It was created by Sir Hugh Beaver, then the managing director of the Guinness Brewery.

WD-40 stands for "Water Displacement, 40th attempt". WD-40 was invented in 1953 and was first used by Convair to protect the outer skin of the Atlas missile from rust and corrosion. Another random WD-40 fact is that WD-40 dissolves cocaine.

In 1992, 29000 rubber ducks fell of a Chinese freight ship in the Pacific ocean. Thousands of them washed up on the shores of eastern Asia and Australia. Some even made it as far as the western shores of Noth & South America. But some have travelled even further; After a few years at sea they floated north into the Bering Straight where they became trapped in the polar ice cap. The ducks and the ice then migrated east. A few years ago they emerged from the ice in the northern Atlantic. From there they traveled down the eastern Canadian & US coastline before be swept into the gulf stream. They are currently on their way to England, and are expected to land sometime in the summer of 2007.

Every year, about 6,500 Americans are injured by their toilet seats
