Guam has seven public elementary schools.

Nepal's flag isn't rectagular. Or square. It's two triangles, sorta.

Newfoundland's time zone is half an hour off of all the others. So are Iran's, bits of India's, Afghanistan's, Burma's, and Nauru's. And some other islands. Like Australia.

The capital of Andorra is Andorra la Vella.

The Republic of San Marino is the world's smallest republic (24 sq. miles) and possibly the oldest state in Europe (founded 4th century AD, according to tradition.)

If you could cut out the United States, its center of gravity would be at Friend, Nebraska.

In 1984, 13,126 people were arrested in Federal drug cases.

When Coca-Cola began to be sold in China, they used characters that would sound like "Coca-Cola" when spoken. Unfortunately, what they turned out to mean was "Bite the wax tadpole". It did not sell well.

When Gerber baby foods began to sell in parts of Africa, they continued to use their usual packaging, with the cute baby on the front. They didn't realize until later that where they were selling it, it was a common practice to help illiterate people buy things by putting pictures on the wrapper of what was inside....

In cats, the calico and tortiseshell coats are sex-linked traits. All cats displaying these coats are female... or ocassionally sterile males.

It's impossible to sneeze without closing your eyes.

Manganese was discovered by Gahn in 1774.

Czar Paul 1 banished soldiers to Siberia for marching out of step.

Shock treatment for epilepsy was once administered by electric catfish!

Michael Tolotos, who died at the age of 80, never saw a woman.

Hairstylist Anthony Silvestri cuts hair while underwater.

Charles ****ens earned no more for his twenty novels than he did from his lectures.

The male scorpion fly gets other males to bring him food by imitating a female fly.

Despite a population of over a billion, China has only about 200 family names.

To strengthen a Damascus sword, the blade was plunged into a slave.

WWI flying ace Jean Navarre attacked a zeppelin armed with only a kitchen knife!

Shakespeare's most talkative character is Hamlet. None of his other characters have as many lines in a single play. (Falstaff, who appears in several plays, has more lines total).

From 1702 until 1709, the Governer of New York was a spendthrift transvestite.

In 1982, the last member of a group of people who believed the Earth was hollow died.

John Bellavia has entered over 5000 contests... and never won anything.

The famous painting of "Whistler's Mother" was once bought from a pawn shop.

The largest school in the the world is a k-12 school in the Phillipines, with an enrollment of about 25,000.

Catherine the Great relaxed by being tickled.

A coward was originally a boy who took care of cows.

''Wherefore'' means ''Why''... not ''where''. So, for example, in Romeo and Juliet (by William Shakespeare), when Juliet says ''Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?'', she's asking why he's named Romeo, not where he is. (This fact isn't completely useless, because getting it wrong in my presence my result in grevious bodily harm. To you, that is.) /i/smilies/16x16_robot-happy.gif

The tip of a 1/3-inch long hour hand on a wristwatch travels at 0.00000275 miles per hour.

One thing that humans do more than anything in their entire life is sleep. Most Americans sleep more than 6-8 hours a day, which is on average around 24 years of ones life!

From 1840, every president elected in a year ending in the numeral "0" has been assassinated, died in office, or been severely wounded in an attempt on his life. Each event has taken place in an odd numbered year and each on an even numbered day. In each case, the number of terms the president was elected to has alternated between single and multiple (i.e. Harrison 1, Lincoln 2, Garfield 1, Mckinley 2, etc). Ronald Reagan was the first president who did not die because of this "curse." If this pattern continues, the person elected in 2000 will die in 2001 or 2003, or will be wounded in an assassination attempt. Let's hope that the "curse" was broken by Ronald Reagan's survival in 1981.
