Had heard about Cortana. Did not fully realize it was like Siri, nor that it was a name from Halo, although that only makes sense, when you think about it, Halo being the Xbox-exclusive title and all.

Did you know it is currently quite brightly sunny, unfortunately with several inches (around 6, I believe) of snow on the ground, where I am currently?

yeah....i think that's called death....LOL! jk

nope i didn't

did you know there's a genetic mutation that causes purple eyes and people who have it will never grow any facial, body, pubic, or anal hair (not including hair on their head, on their ears, noses, eyebrows and eyelashes) women also do not menstruate, but are fertile. HOW MUCH DOES THAT ROCK!?!?!

Haha, i said the same thing until I heard the Ridiculous name for it. I can't remember what it's called, I'll have to look it up.

And yea, that sounds like the sweetest mutation i ever heard of.

Did you know that in the oldest version of sleeping beauty, Aurora's death was prophesied and not a curse?

it totally does!

and no i didn't know that. interesting. although it could be said that a prophesy is just another way of 'cursing' someone who places their absolute faith in that prophecy to the point it then becomes real....

did you know that HIPPOPOTOMONSTROSESQUIPPEDALIOPHOBIA is the fear of long words? HAHAHA now THAT'S a scary word!

Haha, no, didn't but it sounds very fitting! Hippos are very imposing animals...

It's fairly easy to construct extremely long words in Swedish, by the way, e.g. konjunkturutvecklingsprognos (prediction of a market/GDP development cycle) or riskkapitalbolagsdirektionshögkvarter (headquarters of the directorate of a risk investment company)... Words getting joined onto each other for a multi-compound instead of putting breaks between the individual words in there.  ;)

Did you know that George Harrison got the gig of playing lead guitar in the Beatles by showing that he could play Raunchy? Funny thing is, it doesn't sound like that hard a tune...



(We had that EP at home when I grew up and the straightforward, repetitive but stingy tune became a bit of a joke between my brother and myself)

No, I did not know that. It's an interesting piece of music history trivia. <3

Did you know that Pinnochio was a bad motivational speaker? lemurs are the smallest of the primate family and only originate on the island of Madagascar?

nope can't say I knew that,

Did you know that the condition with the purple eyes mentioned previously is called Alexandra's Genesis? Also unfortunately there is no scientific proof of it actually existing.
