    Meh the billionth digit of pi = 9, but from memory, this is about 50 or so decimal places (note: I have actually memorized this, I kid you not, it's a mixture of Aspbergers syndrome + extreme boredom)

    USELESS TRIVIA OF THE DAY:
    Did you know that if you put the taj mahal inside theGreat Pyramid of Egyptand subtract the amount of bricks in the Great Wall of chine from the amount of time it takes to scale the Empire state building and then by taking that figure and multiplying it by the root length of Nelsons Coloumn, you get Michael Jacksons after hours phone number.
    Heh, I found that in some old newspaper.

    Mario, of Super Mario Bros. fame, appeared in the 1981 arcade game, Donkey Kong. His original name was Jumpman, but was changed to Mario to honor the Nintendo of America's landlord, Mario Segali.

    Beer is made by fermentation cause by bacteria feeding on yeast cells and then defecating. In other words, it's a nice tall glass of bacteria doo-doo.

    Jay, do you mean you've memorized the entire pi? Or just the first 50 digits?

    If you get the urge to sneeze, and for whatever reason don't want to, just think about the back of your neck. The urge will go away.

    10 Percent of men are left-handed while only 8 percent of women are left-handed. Male or female, all left-handed people are "in their right mind."

    The fingerprints of koala bears are virtually indistinguishable from those of humans, so much so that they could be confused at a crime scene.


    The placement of a donkey's eyes in its' heads enables it to see all four feet at all times.


    Dogs and humans are the only animals with prostates.

    Ah, but not impossible for a horse to vomit. So it is possible for a horse to be emet too. Some animals that can't vomit are rats and mice, which is why they are killed so easily with poison.

    True gumdropper, and since you don't actually have to have v*ed to be able to be an emet, maybe some rats and mice are as well.

    Sharks can also turn their stomach inside out (outside of their bodies) To clean it out.
