    There are so many facts that are known to less. Some are funny, some are astounding! Lets share them here!

    To start with :

    The World Mobile Throwing Championship is held in Finland every year since 2000. The current world record was set in 2002, where the winner threw his Nokia 5110 a distance of 66.72 meters! Does it make you want to participate?

    Each king in a deck of playing cards represents a great king from history. Spades - King David; Clubs - Alexander the Great; Hearts - Charlemagne; and Diamonds - Julius Caesar.

    I need an honest reply to this question : How many of you already knew (before reading this) that the King of Hearts is the only King without a mustache and the King of diamonds has an axe, while others have swords.

    That's interesting, I didn't know that! Grabbed a pack of cards to check. Also checked the queens and the jacks but could see no differences as obvious as that.

    That's also new to me. Usually, I don't take a closer look to the cards when we're playing.

    Yea... Did you know that after eating, our hearing sense reduces the most, for a period of time, more than any other sense?

    Fleas can reach speeds up to 50 times faster than a space shuttle. Would it be convenient for a ride?
