    Lots of phallic "art" too in "Love Quarter", rooms with sexual positions of your choice. Fascinating town...

    There's also a company that will turn your ashes into a diamond for your loved one to wear. Both options seem a little creepy to me.

    This picture is so damn disturbing. You can see how stiff the woman is most likely from shock. This is akin to rape and the fact that many people still find the picture "romantic" is disgusting.

    This is simply not true. The present day town of Battle did not exist then, and is in fact named after the battle that took place there, 7 miles from Hastings, in 1066.

    Let's see. A standard deck of cards has 52 cards, if I am not mistaken. Start with the first card. 52 choices. 51 for the next, 50 for the following, and so on. This makes 52! possible choices. 52! is a crazy number already....roughly 8.066e * 10^67. Yes, this is 80 with 66 trailing zeros. In comparison, the number of atoms to be estimated for earth is tiny. Depending on the source, earth has about 1.33 * 10^50 atoms. Thus, there are 606 466 165 413 533 834 times more ways to shuffle cards. Number in stochastics can become quite large.

    Old refrigerators used to have handles that would click into place. I'm guessing that magnetic doors are supposed to make it possible to open from the inside rather than the handle clicking the fridge closed...?

    Paper is about 0.1016mm thick. Every time you fold paper you double the number of sheets that are stacked up. First fold=2 sheets, second fold= 4 sheets, etc. After 42 folds # sheets=2^42 . So total height of stack=0.1016mm*2^42= 446,841 kilometers. The distance to the moon is 384,400 km.
