1. Your fingernails grow four times as fast as your toenails.
2. Speaking of cracking knuckles, you can only do it once every five minutes or so.
3. Although it is said that cats like drinking milk, that is not entirely true. They may seem to love cow's milk, but it is bad for adult cats (I can't remember why) and goat's milk is good for them instead.
I might think of more later. ^^

asfdhagfas LEARN WHAT THESE WORDS MEAN BEFORE THROWING THEM AROUND

a theory is not some unfounded wild speculation, contrary to what every second person seems to think. a theory is an explanation of an observed fact, and, hey, guess what? theories can include laws too! stunning, I know. and while we're at it, let's also mention that a) scientific laws can, of course, be broken in the event they are found to be wrong and b) theories are generally on the same level as laws when it comes to reliability.

People probably know this anyway, but it's the only moderately interesting thing that comes to mind: in 1958, Ford developed a design for the Ford Nucleon, which would be powered by a nuclear reactor in the rear of the vehicle (I wonder what this inspired).

I'd hate to see that thing involved in a crash. :|
