Get Fact!
« on: 10 January, 2003, 07:19:51 am »
It has come to my attention that many of the boarders are suggesting that my posts are trivial, off the wall and not to be taken seriously. I have decided to rectify this point of view by enlightening you all with a fact a day, hence the title of this thread. I intend to post a new fact for you every day for as long as I’m here, but in actuality until I get bored of it sometime next week. Here is the first of those facts:

Some snakes can grow up to 30 feet, however they do not use them as they find it easier to slither about on their bellies.

Cos if so, here's mine:

Ernest Rutherford discovered how to split the atom while carving the Sunday roast. He slipped with the knife and accidentally cut into an atom he had left by the side of the plate.

To date, everyone who has appeared on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” has been related to Chris Tarrant. After the show they are forced to return any money they have won.

Cheers JimBob, but I can't take any credit for it as I merely found it in a bin ;)

Robert De Niro is well known for his “method acting” in fact while rehearsing the role of Dwight Hansen in the film “This Boy’s Life”, he brutally kicked the sh*t out of Leonardo De Caprio everyday until he felt he had mastered the part.
