Strange facts

Postby Maple » Fri Feb 03, 2012 11:23 am

This is a thread for you to jot down a weird fact you may know.

I will begin.

A group of rats is called a "mischief".

Not sure if strange, but i think it's a pleasingly useless fact. Multiplying a number of 1s by themselves equals a palindromic number. the best being:

111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321

Like this one. :)

And accordingly, I find 255 a good number in binary terms; equating to 11111111 in binary fibonacci. The last of the 8-bit numbers becomes 100000000 in 9 bit, 256 being the root. I don't know why I like the number 255, but I sure do.. :scratch:

It is possible for people to have unseen birthmarks, for example I have one in my right eye. :)

But can it really be called a mark if it's unseen? :wink: The whole point of a mark being to be seen, e.g. a mark of infamy (aka stigma).

That is a good point, though the optician did refer to it as a birthmark....

He did once in The Crucible "Ahh, Italia - the rolling hills of Toscana, the art of Firenze, the passion that is Venezia..."

Venezia is Venice. :D

To write all the numbers from one to nine hundred and ninety nine you don't need the letter "A"!


Strange, huh?
