Three thousand men labored for 2 years to complete the largest man made moving object in the world. Each of Titanic's engines were the size of a 3 story house. She weighed 66,000 tons and was equivalent in length to four city blocks.

The owner of the Titanic said that "nothing could sink this ship, not even God"..... So what can you expect? In the Bible it says that "no man shall mock God" and its proven.

WTF? Are you saying that god sunk the Titanic?

The owners of the Titanic never said that the ship was unsinkable - that newspaper hype. Where in the bible is your "no man shall mock god? quote? So you are suggesting that god killed all those passengers because what the newspapers said?

No, grimjack... I did not say that God sunk the Titanic but I did say that NO MAN SHALL MOCK GOD and I will look it up for you.

oh and "God himself could not sink this ship!" This quotation, made famous by Cameron's film, is reputed to have been the answer given by a deck hand when asked if Titanic was really unsinkable. On this site

Way back in 1920, there was a little candy shop in Chicago owned by George Williamson. A young fellow by the name of Henry who visited this shop on a regular basis became friendly with the young girls working there. They were soon asking favors of him, clamoring Oh Henry, will you do this?, and Oh Henry, will you do that? So often did Mr. Williamson hear the girls beseeching poor young Henry for help, that when he needed a name for a new candy bar, he called it OH HENRY! and filed a trademark application the following year.

M&M candies were originally made as a high-energy field snack for American soldiers in 1940. They were named after Forrest Mars and Bruce Murries, the inventors.

Well I suppose that candy is the in thing until chocalate is more available than now. Funny how one never think of where stuff actually comes from, until there is a shortage.

It's Christmas madness already. In 1999, the United States Postal Service issued a Slinky postage stamp (the spring toy that slinks down the stairs). In 2001, House Bill No.1893 of the 2001 Session of the General Assembly of Pennsylvania made Slinky the Official State Toy of Pennsylvania. Carried by communications soldiers in Vietnam, Slinky was tossed over a high tree branch as a makeshift radio antenna. Slinky was incorporated into a spring device used to pick pecans from trees. Over 300 million Slinkys have been sold.

Oprah is actually a typo. Her parents wanted to use the biblical name Orpah, but the midwife couldn’t spell too well, so it became Oprah.

A stream of particles, mostly electrons and protons, manage to escape the sun's gravity due to their high kinetic energy. This solar wind could do quite a bit of damage, but is deflected by the Earth's magnetic field, creating phenomena like the Northern Lights.

A galactic year is 250 million Earth-years. This is the time it takes for our solar system to make one revolution around the Milky Way Galaxy.

There are mirrors on the moon. Astronauts left them so that laser beams could be bounced off of them from Earth. These beams help give us the distance to the moon give or take a few metres.

From NASA.gov
"Ringed by footprints, sitting in the moondust, lies a 2-foot wide panel studded with 100 mirrors pointing at Earth: the "lunar laser ranging retroreflector array." Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong put it there on July 21, 1969, about an hour before the end of their final moonwalk. Thirty-five years later, it's the only Apollo science experiment still running." http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2004/21jul_llr.htm (has a picture)

e^(pi * i) + 1 = 0
is known as Euler's Identity, has remarkable mathematical beauty.

It contains three basic arithmetic operations of addition, multiplication, and exponentiation. Also links five fundamental mathematical constants.

The identity is derived from Euler's Formula:
e^(x * i) = cos(x) + i*sin(x)
by letting x be pi.

Some of the newer tattoo inks are micro encapsulated pigments that are permanent(?) until hit with a particular laser beam that vaporizes the coating and it is all absorbed and disposed of by the body.

Fig Newtons (cookies) were created in 1891 by Charles M. Roser of the Kennedy Biscuit Company, a Massachusetts-based bakery. It is named for the city of Newton, Massachusetts. The Kennedy Biscuit Company merged with other regional bakeries in 1899 to form the National Biscuit Company, which later became Nabisco.

Cinnamon, ground cardamom, ground cloves and ground nutmeg are the spices in the traditional German Xmas cookie called Lebkuchen. Thanks to the German lady next door who just brought by another batch of those delicious morsels.

The FDA reportedly has no plans to raid your spice rack. Probably because they're assuming nobody is dumb enough to give it a go. Some users compare a nutmeg "high" to a hellish case of the flu. To make things worse, nutmeg consumption is easily the most inconvenient way to get high, the dose is large and it takes five to six hours to show any effect.

Heh! I snorted mace and nutmeg in my youth - I definitely prefer acid, mushrooms and/or mescaline -- I DID prefer, I am too old to let go like that any more.

In prisons, I suppose you take what you can get.
