The longest running TV show IN THE WORLD is aired in Ireland! It Started the year TV's were introduced to Ireland (1961 I think...) and has been running ever since.

The word Boycott, comes from my home county in Ireland. Basically we didn't like the land agent Charles Boycott, so everyone agreed to refuse to serve him in all of the shops or deal with him in business.

Ireland holds the world Records for... Most cookies baked in an hour, Largest tea towel, Most cups of teat in an hour, Highest combined age, and Highest number of redheads per capita.

Aboriginal Australians lived in paradise before colonisation. It took on average 4hrs/day to acquire all the food and resources you'd need. Imagine if your biggest choice was "do I hunt, fish or go to the yam beds today". After you have a big party with everyone, eat, dance and go to bed.
Furthermore Aboriginal people resisted colonisation every step of the way. It is a lie that we were dying out. It is a lie that we were happy to be subjugated. Today is Australia day, a day that celebrates colonisation. In Australia they celebrate the day my people were murdered rather than better dates such as the day Aboriginal people got the right to vote and we all were included as Australians. The date of our national holiday needs to change

Hmm, I have a lot.
1) if the Milky Way galaxy was the size of the USA, the sun would be the size of a white blood cell.
2) comparing an atom to a coin is like comparing the coin to the moon.
3) in about 4 billion years, the Milky Way and its neighbour (the Andromeda galaxy) will collide and merge forming a new galaxy by the name “Milkdromeda” (not the official name but it’s what people prefer calling it)
4) there is a theorised type of matter known as “anti-matter”. If you touch an anti-matter version of yourself, you both would anhilate each other and give out a huge burst of energy. (The properties of anti-matter and regular matter are the same except that the charges are reversed. Electrons are positive, protons are negative and so on)
5) there is a 1 in 5.2*10^61 chance that if you slam your hand against a table, the atoms in your hand will miss the atoms in the table and go right through it.
6) if you were able to compress the history of planet Earth into a single day, humans would appear 1 second before midnight.
7) it’s impossible to cool down an atom to 0 Kelvin. If you did that then you would know how fast the atom was going ( 0 km/hr) and where it was which isn’t exactly allowed in this universe.
8) the skin on your a**s and the skin on your lips are exactly the same.

Whether you could see the start of the universe as you fell into a black hole isn't entirely obvious and the "end" of the universe is a bit unclear, but you would certainly see a long way into the future. If you chose a supermassive black hole, you might even survive the tidal forces long enough to see the universe begin to expand at a noticeably faster rate. As for trusting that people have kept track of what day it is, there was a schism between Eastern Europe and Western Europe in the middle ages and it's the reason Greek Orthodox Christians celebrate Christmas later than Catholics and Protestants.

well as a fan of random trivia and a huge nerd, here's the first 10 random facts I thought of:

1) dolphin semen causes orgasms so extreme they stop your heart and kill you. also the thing about dolphins saving people in the ocean? yea no they're much more likely to rape you.

2) the official animal of scotland is the unicorn.

3) if your immune system found out about your eyes, it would think your eyes are a foreign object and destroy them.

4) the only food that never goes bad is honey.

5) pools shouldn't smell. everybody thinks that chlorine has a smell, but it doesn't. what you actually smell at a pool is chloride; which is a chemical reaction that occurs when you mix chlorine and urine, sweat, and/or makeup.

6) there is nothing every single human agrees on. literally nothing. not even the majority of humans can agree on something. and i bet someone who is reading this disagrees with me.

7) the name for fear of palindromes (words/phrases that are spelled the same forwards and backwards. for example dad; racecar; hannah; go hang a salami, i'm a lasagna hog) is aibohphobia. yea english is fun.

8) "anyways" is not a word. the word is "anyway." "irregardless" is not a word. the word is "regardless". "i could care less" makes no sense. you mean "i couldn't care less." signed, every grammar nerd ever.

9) 31 out of the world's 32 developed countries have free healthcare. guess which one is the odd one out. GO 'MURICA!

10) period cramps can produce the same amount of pain as a heart attack. no im not joking. having a uterus fcking sucks.

In normal usage, "kerf" refers to the thickness of material removed by a toothed blade. Normal off-the-shelf puzzles are made of a pressed paper, like a stiff cardboard, are cut with a die - which works more like a razor blade pressing through the material. No material is removed, so technically there's no kerf. A fancy puzzle that's maybe made of a thin wooden board might be cut with a jigsaw, a blade that has teeth and thus removes material. This leaves a kerf of a measurable thickness.

Facts to give you an existential crisis:

- You're not actually solid. You're mostly empty space. You're made of atoms, and they're just a tiny nucleus and some tinier electrons with a ton of space between them.

- The Big Bang had a bunch of really short, exotic eras a fraction of a second long. That seems short to us. The era of stars and life seems like the point of the universe that the short seconds of the Big Bang were a precursor to. But this isn't the universe's final form. After the stars go out, the era of black holes will last so much longer than the era of stars that the era of stars is on the same scale as the split-second-long eras at the beginning of the Big Bang. We are still living in the Big Bang.

There are *more than* two trillion galaxies, assuming the universe has not fallen into vacuum decay that just has not yet reached us. Even then, it would have to be finite to have fewer galaxies, and we don't know and probably can't know if the universe is indeed finite. As far as being solid... first, we are mostly liquid (from just a phase perspective) so even in the simplest of terms, we aren't solid. But when you get down into the "empty space" of atoms, standard ideas of "empty" and "full" don't really work out. Electrons aren't in a single place, they are in clouds with a certain energy that means they are more or less likely to be observed at a given place, but not for sure... but they can still absorb and release photons according to their valence rules, wherever they "are". The nucleus also doesn't "exist" in a comfortable way. Protons and neutrons are made of quarks which are particles in their own right but mostly have mass because of their interactions with the quantum foam and not because they are some sort of individually "touchable" thing. Of course they do have strong force color and electric charge, so they are touchable the same way anything else is, by repulsive force between like charged particles creating a very high energy barrier at close range, as an increasingly intense flurry of photons tries to knock one side or the other back.

I think the last one is a mix up on the old superstition about lighting 3 cigarettes on one match. Snipers watched for the glow from a foxhole in the dark. First one lit, sniper spots your location. 2nd one lit, sniper aims, 3rd one and sniper shoots, so "3 on a match" was said to be bad luck. The black Lucky Strike story was an urban legend claiming a black cigarette in the pack meant there was marijuana in it.

Serif fonts date back to the days of chiseling type into stone. Serifs were added to the top and bottom to tidy up the letters!

Serifs are the little extra lines or curves at each end of a typeset letter, like the printing above. If the font uses plain, straight letters without embellishment (like the font printed here), then the letters are sans (without) sarif.

my fact is that people bully others solely because they don't feel good about themselves or they're jealous so they take their anger out on others and if you are a victim of bullying i can help just look into my account and i have a post on bullying and how to help just post how you are bullied and i can give you encouragement and help to stand up for yourself so don't be afraid just ignore them, they are wrong you just need to worry about what you think about yourself and i suggest putting a rose quartz under your mirror because that produces self love.

ignoring bullies cause a bigger problem, it is shown by research that many bullies bully for attention, ignoring them makes them try to get attention by doing something worse, therefore making the situation worse. There have been many studies including my own, a 12 year old's studies supporting this.
