    Did you know that Ejaz is pretending that he didnt know this? And did you know that Ejaz is talking very dirty ???

    Note: I am not posting junk - I am always having some meaningful "Did you know that"s so that Cilu's army won't prison me.

    Hence, some true "did you know that"s:

    Did you know that:
    Barbie's measurements if she were life size: 39-23-33.
    Did you know that:
    Living on earth doesnt cost you for the travel around the sun (include the journey due to rotation on its axis too). They are free.
    Did you know that:
    The three largest land-owners in England are the Queen, the Church of England and Trinity College, Cambridge.
    Did you know that:
    No animal, once frozen solid (i.e., water solidifies and turns to ice) survives when thawed, because the ice crystals formed inside cells would break open the cell membranes. However there are certain frogs that can survive the experience of being frozen. These frogs make special proteins which prevent the formation of ice (or at least keep the crystals from becoming very large), so that they actually never freeze even though their body temperature is below zero Celsius. The water in them remains liquid: a phenomenon known as 'supercooling.' If you disturb one of these frogs (just touching them even), the water in them quickly freezes solid and they die. [But David Blayne made it possible on the AXN..amazing huh]
    Did you know that:
    Madrid is the only European capital city not situated on a river.
    Did you know that:
    The ship, the Queen Elizabeth 2, should always be written as QE2. QEII is the actual queen.
    Did you know that:
    Libya has the only flag which is all one color with no writing or decoration on it.
    Did you know that:
    The common goldfish is the only animal that can see both infra-red and ultra-violet light.
    Did you know that:
    A person from the country of Nauru is called a Nauruan; this is the only palindromic nationality.
    Did you know that:
    In the last 4000 years, no new animals have been domesticated.
    Did you know that:
    No word in the English language rhymes with month.
    Did you know that more can be foundhere. Did you know that now I will say "Regards"? Regards.

    Did You Know That...

    The can opener was invented in 1858 by American Ezra Warnet. There also is a claim that Englishman Robert Yeates invented the can opener in 1855. But the can opener did not become popular until, ten years later, it was given away for free with canned beef

    I did not know..

    Did you Know That..

    The smallest island in the world - according to the Guiness Book of Records - is Bishop Rock. It lies at the most south-westerly part of the United Kingdom. It is one of 1040 islands around Britain and only has a lighthouse on it. In 1861, the British government set out the parameters for classifying an island. It was decided that if it was inhabited, the size was immaterial. However, if it was uninhabited, it had to be "the summer's pasturage of at least one sheep" - which is about two acres.
    Going by the above parameters, most of the 179 584 "islands" around Finland and the almost 200 000 around Canada would not match Indonesia as the country with the most islands. In fact, Indonesia consists only of islands - 13 667 of them, 6000 of which are inhabited.

    Isn't it true that the can opener was invented about 10 years before the can was invented?

    Did you know that a man in Paris once faked a breakdown so he could win a bet that he could lie down in the middle of a busy street during rush hour and not get run over?

    Only in France.
