Fake Trivia
« on: January 25, 2007, 03:02:41 PM »
Okay, here's the deal:  you come up with a piece of trivia that is completely not based on reality.  Here's some examples:

Pickles are actually cucumbers that have been soaked for up to and including 9 hours in arsenic.

Jackie Chan controls 98.7% of the world's supply of cuban cigars.

Fischer Space Pens all contain a secret compartment that, when opened, releases a quick-acting stun gas which leaves victims temporarily knocked out and paralyzed.

Trash cans have only been in use since, like, 1991, but everyone acts all like they've been around since, like, forever.

It is against the law in some states (including Louisiana) to play Zydeco music between 4:00 am and 4:03 am.

Teenaged boys who post on blogs really do all have girlfriends in Canada.  Seriously.  Don't let the fact that you've never met them or talked to them on phone or even seen a picture of them make you think that they're totally made up.  Put the thought out of your mind.

Ironically, Barbara and David Mikkelson, the creators of the popular Urban Legend debunking site Snopes.com, narrowly escaped death at the hands of a hook-handed serial killer while necking inside their car on a stormy night on an isolated bluff overlooking the city.

They call it Dr Pepper because of the perscription strength drugs they contained in the 1800s. This continued until Mr Pibb was created in 1927 as an over-the-counter substitute. Also, it was sprinkled on food to keep it tasting fresh!

The fanciful version of Santa Claus that the world has come to love actually exists, but his soul is owned and operated by the Coca Cola company, who has been sneaking doses of hallucinogens into their soda cans since 1969.

Pink Floyd intentionally created DSOTM to match The Wizard of Oz as a perfect and subliminal soundtrack. This is hinted at by the light beam going through the prism and becoming a spectrum showing the colors of the rainbow, which alludes to the movie's famous song, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."

Also, there are really only about 6 species of bat. The rest are just being nitpicked.

Infinity is not the largest number. Start a line going east into infinity. Then go west a mile and start a second line going east into infinity. They both never end, but the line that was started to the west is clearly a mile longer. However many miles THAT is is the biggest number. :^)

This just in!

Lindsay Lohan to Star in Everything

Actress Linday Lohan, currently going through rehabilitation, is excited to get back on the scene, especially since her agent has arranged a deal with some major studios that is the first of its kind.

"she'll be in every movie," says Randal P. Nowotni, Lohan's agent. "With today's technology, it can be done."

Nowotnie first had th idea while reading an article about a possible production starring a digitally created Bruce Lee.

Lohan is thrilled with the idea. "I get to be Princess Leah," she exclaims. "I'm also going to be Mia in Pulp Fiction and (squeals with delight) Trinity in The Matrix!"

Nowotni is excited to see Lohan in some of his own favorite movies. "She'll also star in The Birds, Rear Window, play Lt. Ripley in the Alien movies."

In order to push the campagn along, the movies will no longer be available in their original form. "Those older ones suck anyway," says Lohan. "The ones Randy likes. Bot not for long!"

These changes are expected to take place within the next two years.

Ass. Press

It is a common misconception that the Amish can never use modern technology.  According to their official charter, the Amish can start using modern technology "...as soon as the last Scotsman lies dead."

Cottage Cheese is named thusly because it can be made with various things found around the house. While the cottage element proves true, there IS no actual cheese in it! To make Cottage Cheese, first find a cottage, then get some milk from the fridge, pour it on some packing foam, and leave it out in the sun for 2 hours.

While the existence of spoons and the Matrix is actually in question, the more pressing and globally disturbing investigation revolves around the truth behind whether or not the world cares anymore.
