Did you know that...
« on: June 26, 2012, 05:55:50 AM »
I thought of a new and (hopefully) fun game that is also interesting at the same time. ^_^

It works pretty simple, you give an answere based on the question "Did you know that..."

That answer has to be some sort of fact that you don't think is commonly known, like the day that Albert Einstein was born or in which year gun powder was discovered in Europe. It can be about anything really, like things that interest you in your personal life, or facts that have to do with your job or field of specialty.

The next person can then reply that he/ she did or didn't know that and ask a new question. ;D


I'll start the first one:

Kia Silverbrook is the most profilic inventor and has 9,716 patents or patent applications registered at the international patent document database?

I only knew the associations were old... 9500 years? Wow!

Did you know laughter is a panic response when someone tickles you?  This is also why you can't tickle yourself, as your body senses no danger.

Did you know that very roughly of course due to evaporation and weather there is 326 million trillion gallons of water on our planet.
