5 Things You Didn't Know...

http://www.askmen.com/entertainment/...york-city.html


About NYC! For instance, it's in the U.S.! I thought this was pretty interesting. (Pretty is an overstatement, it's mildly interesting.) My friend from Cali got a book when he was here called something like "Little Known Facts About Well Known Places" (very spcific) and the shit in there was much cooler like:

100 million Chinese food cartons are used annually in New York City.

Although long associated with Radio City Music Hall, the world-famous Rockettes actually formed in St. Louis, and were known as the Missouri Rockets before moving east.

The average temperature of New York City pavement on a hot summer day is 150 degrees.

The light posts in Central Park actually have the location of where you would be by street, if you know, it wasn't in a park.

Important sort of things. Anybody got anything else?

I don't get this one... explanation?

I'm still kinda new to this beautiful city. But I'll do a little research and hit this up again later.

In Central Park, the light posts have a series of numbers on them and the book said that it's apparently the address of where you would be (like what streets) if it wasn't in the park. I checked this week actually and I saw the numbers, but I really couldn't make sense of them, yeah. Where are you from orig?

The expression blondes are dumb came about when a blonde Royalty accidently killed herself with a lead overdose. It happened because she put on too much make up.

If you took all the ants in the world and all the humans in the world and put them on scales, the ants would weigh more.

Another few random ones I like:


The mushroom is the only organism on earth with a triple helix in its DNA

Mushrooms spores are the only thing on earth that can survive and travel in space.

Without mushrooms, ants would rule the rainforests.

Could it be that mushrooms arrived on earth from another planet via comet?

There was a pretty big falling out between the two a few years ago. The way I understand it, the Ants felt like the mushrooms were always ignoring them and never really paid them any attention. It got really bad when there was supposed to be a summit for them to try and work out their differences and the mushrooms just sat there in sh*t, not responding to anything that the ants brought up. It went down hill from there.

A lot of people that are familiar to the situation really think that it's a case of roid rage on the part of the ants. I mean who can really lift 50 times there body weight and not be juicing???
