How about a thread for interesting, funny or weird facts?

Like did you know that mice can run at a speed of 13 km/hr? Here’s the crazy part tho, from a size perspective that’s the same as a human running at almost 260 km/hr. No wonder the lil buggers seem so fast.

I'm not a human in real life, I just play one on the internet.

'Giving horns' with your hand...by extending your index and pinky finger is not considered Heavy Metal or Gnar or Rock'n'Roll in Italy. 

In Italy it is an offence and bike riders are better off showing "Hang Loose"

fact - prices have been dropping in metro van for the past year, in some places prices are down as much as 30%. 

now could be considered a good time to buy, but if you can afford to wait, up to a year even, you will be rewarded.
