How about a thread of Factoids, now the Wiki page has an interesting view on Factoids:
A factoid is a questionable or spurious (unverified, false, or fabricated) statement presented as a fact, but with no veracity. The word can also be used to describe a particularly insignificant or novel fact, in the absence of much relevant context. The word is defined by the Compact Oxford English Dictionary as "an item of unreliable information that is repeated so often that it becomes accepted as fact".
The bit in bold are the types of Factiods i'm interested in, so lets share yours.
We are looking for facts that do not have to be topical, can be slightly pointless and have no use in your life what so ever but they are just a little qit "Quirky"
I have heard and i believe it is true that the earth is technically smoother than a pool or snooker ball.
If you shrink the earth down to the size of a pool ball the oceans and mountains become so minute it appears to be a perfectly smooth object. (just not a perfectly round object) . .. .
