    The "Useless Information" Thread

    I stole this idea from Poisonivy, who has a similar thread going on the iPhone Forum, so my thanks go to her for that.

    Share what you please. It doesn't have to be earth shatteringly brilliant.

    I'll start. Vowels.


    As I just used the word in another thread, the word "facetious" is the shortest word in the English language to use all the vowels in order.

    The shortest word to use all the vowels in any order is the French word "oiseau" meaning "bird".

    Dutch isn't content with five vowels. The letters I and J, when printed together are considered to be one letter, IJ, and are both capitalized when starting a sentence or a proper noun, eg IJselmeer.

    Welsh is the only language to use W as a vowel. As in the word "cwm"

    Spin an egg to see if it's hard boiled. A raw egg will always spin slower.

    Ozone, although made up entirely of oxygen atoms, is as poisonous as carbon monoxide.

    No sugar added on a product label does not mean no sugar.
