      The loudest finger knuckle crack was measured in at 83.2 dB, it was achieved by Miguel Ángel Molano, on the 25th of May, 2012.

      That's about as loud as a garbage disposal.


      I have very creaky bones, I can crack just about every joint in my body, even my hip.

      What about you?

      Third president of the United States of America, Thomas Jefferson, invented the swivel chair. The first of which he created he used whilst writing the Declaration of Independence.


      I guess you could say he really turned the situation around.


      ...


      I'll just go now.

      The PlayStation 2 was so popular that it was produced up until the month before the PlayStation 4 was announced.


      Meanining that it was produced for just under 13 years, one of the longest runs for a video game console.


      I still have mine, and it reminds me of a happier time in my life, so thank you Sony.

      Even if it's memory was terrible...

      November the 3rd 1888, all sheep in a 200 square mile radius in Oxfordshire, tens of thousands of sheep, all panicked, many attempting to break from their pens and jump over fences. So, what caused the sheep to be so terrified? An earthquake? A meteor? Perhaps a fire?


      No, it was caused by just one sheep panicking, perhaps simply because it couldn't see it's friends in the dark, that one sheep getting spooked resulted in the death of numerous sheep.


      If a sheep jumps over a fence does that make it a woolly jumper?

      Female spotted hyenas have pseudo-penises, they are actually elongated clitorises, around seven inches in length, and are fully functional in all of the roles of a penis, including getting erections and being able to pass urine, with a difference of that they cannot impregnate another female. They also have pseudo-scrotums made up of their labia, meaning the have no external vaginal opening.


      So they not only have to copulate through it, they also have to give birth through it. Yes that's right, they have to give birth through what is essentially their urethra, the hole is so small that roughly 60% of baby hyenas die of suffocation during the birthing process to new mothers. They will stretch out over the course of birthing, resulting in a somewhat easier birthing process, still difficult however.


      As a whole scientists don't actually have any clear idea of as to why the females evolved this, frankly very poorly designed, feature, although it is thought that it may be a side effect of the huge amount of testosterone females have, three times more than the males, making them 25% larger than the males on average, more aggressive and the alphas of the packs.

      One can only give their condolences to the males, as even the females have bigger dicks than them.

      Tutankhamun had a club left foot, courtesy of kohler's disease, which causes necrosis of the bones. His foot would have rolled under his own weight, proving to be incredibly painful, as all of the bones are being contorted in an unnatural way. He also had feminine hips, a cleft palate, multiple strains of malaria, scoliosis and to add insult to, his already numerous, injuries he also had buck teeth.


      A large majority of these deformities likely being due to the fact that his parents, Pharaoh Akhenaten and The Younger Lady, were siblings.


      All in all I'd say he sounds exactly like a god among us.

      In 284 CE, the Roman Emperor Diocletian came to power to a Roman Empire that was in a state of disarray, to combat this, on the 1st of March 293 CE, he instated a tetrarchy, meaning there were in essence four emperors, each reigning over a quarter of the empire, in their own capital, one in Nicomedia (Turkey), another in Sirmium (Serbia), a third in Mediolanum (Milan) and finally the last in Augusta Treverorum (Trier). It was so successful that Diocletian was the first emperor to ever retire, he moved to the Dalmatian coast (Croatia) were he grew vegetables.


      Christ, imagine if, rather than one leader, the U.S. had to let four of the main candidates be president...

      In London it is quite common for wealthy individuals to wish to expand their home, but that can be a problem, as even despite being wealthy, land in London is inordinately expensive, therefore in order to gain more space for their already pre-existing homes, cheaper, they will have underground floors added.


      In order to achieve this contractors will use a JCB Excavator to dig the hole under the house, but once done the digger has no way of getting out of the hole it has dug, so rather than lift it out by crane they have the digger dig one more hole, and then bury it  in concrete down there in the newly dug basement as it is cheaper to bury it down there, rather than have to hire a crane, pay to block of the road to get the crane in, further damage the house and pay the workers for extra time, in the end the customers tend to be the kind that can afford it, so it's cheaper to just bury it.


      The same sort of thing happened with the last British tunnel boring machine (TBM) used to dig the channel tunnel, most, including all of the French TBMs, were dismantled, but the last British one instead was diverted off to the side to bore another tunnel, away from the main tunnels, once it had dug clear of the main tunnels it was powered down and bricked off, leaving it there, forever entombed, having never made it to France.


      I'm willing to bet you feel bad for the excavators and boring machines, probably thinking "Aw, poor digger, left down there in the dark after working so hard." Well to that I say:


      It's a digger, who cares.

      After the Second World War, Hideki Tōjō, the Prime Minister of Japan, as well as one of the generals of the Imperial Japanese Army, was arrested and underwent emergency surgery in a U.S. Army hospital, after having tried to commit suicide. Upon recovering from his injuries, Tōjō was moved to Sugamo Prison.


      It should be known that Tōjō required dentures, though after having been arrested all of his possessions, including his dentures, were confiscated, so while there he received a new set of dentures made by an American dentist.


      Unbeknownst to Tōjō however was that the phrase "Remember Pearl Harbor" had been secretly drilled into the teeth in Morse Code (The dentist ground away the message three months later.)

      This makes me wonder, if we had captured Hitler would we have given him a false testicle with "Remember Dunkirk" written on it?

      Vitamin C doesn't actually affect colds in the slightest, the best vitamin for curing and preventing a cold is the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D.


      Personally I just punch the cold out of me, face it like a real man, mind you it is rather hard to fight microscopic organisms...
