A typical healthy male ejaculates about 100 million sperm. Add that to your odds of being born.

In the first generation of Pokemon, the Dragon-type was virtually non-existent as an offensive type. The only Dragon-type move at the time, Dragon Rage, which inflicted a set 40 damage, was unaffected by weakness and resistance, meaning Dragon's only practical weakness was the Ice-type.

The most beautiful and brightly colored animals are usually the most venomous or poisonous. But that is a useful fact.

Now here is the useless fact that may get you killed. You can separate a venomous cone snail from its shell by tossing it into an ants nest and waiting a couple of days while they clean it out.

Wait, that's actually useful too! and it can be used for other skeletons too! Dam... umm...

At current US minimum wage, you earn $15,080 working 40 week full time in a year. That is less then 4 bitcoins. In my city, it's a little over 5 bitcoins. Crazy, isn't it.

Neville Sharp from the town of Humpty Doo (that's amazing in itself), located in the Northern Territory, Australia, has just unofficially broken the world record for the loudest burp, set by UK man Paul Hunn in 2009, which was 109.9 decibels.

Haha, this brings back memories. Now I'm gonna have to go listen to the song.

Useless fact:
.72... = 8/11
Any repeating decimal can be put into fractional form in the following way:
.72... = x

Now, multiply to move the entire repeating pattern to the left of the decimal place.
100x = 72.72...

Subtract x so that you are left with a whole number on both sides
99x = 72

x = 72/99

x = 8/11

It has occurred to me that everyone else might have actually bothered to remember this from their school days, but I had completely forgotten in until my 13 yr. old neighbor showed me the other day, so I figure it's worth a shot.

Odd fact if Poison Dart frogs pictured below normally very poisonous unless breed in captivity then they are not poisonous
