The letters of the constructed word GHOTI are pronounced the same as the word fish, due to the famous irregularities in the pronunciation of letter combinations in the English language.
An interesting but useless piece of info for most people.
my bit of useless information was that in this month there are 5 Saturdays,5 Sundays and 5 Mondays and it won't happen again until 2018.
There is only one circumstance under which you can have a Friday the 13th in two consecutive months. That is when February 1st is a Sunday and it isn't a leap year. When this happens, there's also a third Friday the 13th in November. This is the maximum number of Friday the 13th's that can occur in a single calendar year. It last happened in 2009, and will happen again in 2015. Research has shown that the 13th falls on a Friday more often than any other day of the week.
A meta-limerick is a limerick about limericks:
There once was a man from Peru
Whose limericks stopped at Line Two.
...or, in the same vein,
There once was a man from Verdun.
(Did you hear the limerick about the Emperor Nero?)
milliHelen: amount of beauty required to launch one ship.
Dermatoglyphics and uncopyrightable are words in which no letter appears more than once and they each have 15 letters. That's fingerprinting, and free press to me
More a reflection of me than anything else but definitely falling under useless information is the fact that I try to do things on my phone that are only iPad compatible. The biggest is the 4 finger swipe, I find myself trying it at least once or twice a day.
Snow shoveling is one of those few tasks where, if you ignore it long enough, the problem will go away on its own.;)
You don't buy beer, you just rent it for a while.:D
What's that behind it? A Stone Age case fan, or are you teaching it how to fly?
