08/20/2021 More Weirdness   Leave a comment

As I promised in an earlier post, it’s time for another installment of really weird facts and assorted nonsense. I’m going to try to supply everyone with this kind of thing each week because there’s absolutely no end to the amount of weird and useless facts available out there. It’s my job job to find them and share them with you whether you like or or not. Lets get this ball rolling.

  • A quarter has 119 grooves on its edge, a dime has one less groove.
  • A silicon chip a quarter of an inch square has the capacity of the original 1949 ENIAC computer, which occupied a city block.
  • Snails can have about 25,000 teeth.
  • About 70% of all living organisms in the world are bacteria.
  • A ten gallon hat holds 3/4 of a gallon.
  • A whale’s heart beats only nine times a minute.
  • Albert Einstein was offered the presidency of Israel in 1952.
  • Winston Churchill was born in a ladies room during a dance.
  • Babe Ruth wore a cabbage leaf under his cap to keep him cool. He changed it every two innings.
  • The longest one syllable word in the English language is screeched.

Well there’s your weekly installment of weird facts. I barely scratched the surface of what I have stored away for future posts. I hope you find them as interesting as I do. Enjoy your day.
