ok, got some very random ones for ya here:

There are 336 dimples on a regulation golf ball.

The winter of 1932 was so cold that Niagara Falls froze completely solid.

Winston Churchill was born in a ladies' room during a dance

We almost never see Legolas blink. The one exception is when he sets eyes on Galdalf's white horse, Shadowfax: he blinks five times in surprise.

and more...

During the filming of a light-sabre duel in Star Wars Episode 1, Ewan McGregor couldn't understand why the crew were laughing, until George Lucas told him: "Ewan, don't make the noises."

Did you know that when you write =rand(200,99) and then *enter* on a blank page of Microsoft Word, you obtain pages of something like "Give this man a beer and a kiwi" ?
It doesn't work for every PC but it worked for mine.

I get 'The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog', lol. It's to test the computer systems - is your computer Australian?

Oh, and the one about it being impossible to sneeze with your eyes open is fake - I can do it! Yes, it's weird and unnatural, but it is possible!

And um random useless facts...

*Orlando Bloom voices a singing South Park character in one episode (I don't which, so don't ask!)

*The average woman consumes 6 pounds of lipstick in her lifetime.

*If you swallow your chewing gum it won't come out for 20 years.

*The first female guest host of "Saturday Night Live" was Candace Bergen.

*The first TV couple to share a bed was not on "The Brady Bunch" or "The Munsters," but was on "The Mary Kay and Johnny" show in 1947. It was the first situation comedy ever.

*In 1933, Mickey Mouse, an animated cartoon character, received 800,000 fan letters.

*Franklin D. Roosevelt was the first president to be televised, in ceremonies opening the New York World's Fair in April 1939.

*The first television shows to have the characters take bathroom breaks were "All in the Family" and "Married with Children."

*The Simpsons is the longest running animated series on TV.

*MTV first aired at 12:01 AM on August 1, 1981. The first video was "Video Killed the Radio Star" by the Buggles.

*The first toilet ever seen on television was on "Leave It to Beaver."

*In every episode of Seinfeld there is a Superman somewhere.

*Women blink nearly twice as much as men (my mate Geoff said it's because 'women have dirty eyes...' lol)

*Hitler was claustrophobic. The large elevator leading to his eagles nest in the Austrian Alps was mirrored so it would appear larger and more open.

*Hans Christian Andersen, creator of fairy tales, was word-blind. He never learned to spell correctly, and his publishers always had the spelling errors corrected.

*Barbie's full name is "Babara Millicent Roberts".

*Shakespeare invented the words "assassination" and "bump".

*Marilyn Monroe had six toes.

*Walt Disney was afraid of mice.

*The sound of E.T. walking was made by someone squishing her hands in jelly.

*Elvis' hair color was originally blonde. He dyed it black because he was a big fan of Roy Orbison.

*Giraffes have no vocal chords.

*Rats can't vomit.

*An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

*A cockroach can live 9 days without its head before it starves to death.

*Emus and kangaroos can't walk backwards.

*The snail mates only once in its entire life.

*A flamingo can eat only when its head is upside down.

*Termites are affected by music. They will eat your house twice as fast if you play loud music.

*The name "Kangaroo" came about when some of the first white settlers saw this strange animal hopping along and they asked the Aborigines what it was called. They replied with "Kanguru", which in their language means "I don't know".

*The 'rusticles' on the model of the sunken Titanic were Cheeto's and bran flakes painted with rust colored primer.

*No piece of paper can be folded more than 7 times.

*There is cyanide in apple pips.

*You share your birthday with at least 9 million other people in the world.

There we go! Useless and many

T'he quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.'

Did you know that the sentence 'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.' has all the letters of the alphabet in it? (which is why when you look at fonts it shows that sentence)

No, that's a load of bollox! I can sneeze with my eyes open and I haven't sustained an 'eye injury' or had them pop out, lol!

Y'know when you're doing your mascara and it's wet and you have to sneeze? Well your eyelids flinch, but don't actually close if you're determined enough to keep your eyes open!

Trust me. It's happened many many times to me and my eyes have been open
