Top Ten Useless Facts

The Top Ten
1 Dreamt is the only english word that ends with mt

Holy cow! My life is complete now that I know this

Well, I didn't even know the existence of that word, and now I even know that it is unic somehow.
That's usefull

2 Statistically, more people button their shirt upwards

People button upwards because you're less likely to get the buttons and the holes mixed up...

I don't use button shirts, but for me it's easier to button a shirt downwards...

I button downwards and upwards... yeah

3 A pig's penis is shaped like a corkscrew

I feel like my life's work is complete now that I have heard that random fact!

I really feel sorry for the bloke who had to find that out.

Now I have to look at a pigs underbelly to see if it's true. Great.

4 Go is the shortest complete sentence in the English language

This is an interesting concept, but it might be wrong. A complete sentence has to involve a subject (he's) and a predicate (cool, over there,etc.). A word like "go" or "no" is not a complete sentence since it only implies a subject. Therefore, the shortest complete sentence would have to be "I am." "I" is the subject; "am" is the predicate.

It is the shortest sentence because go is an imperative sentence, meaning it is telling someone to do something. 'You go' is the full sentence, but you do not need 'you', which is the subject, to be added in front of go.

5 Most elephants weigh less than a blue whale's tongue

This is so useful... I use this fact every day... And wonder why people ignore me

This is so irrelevant and useless it's funny!

6 Only female mosquitos bite

Mosquito need blood for their eggs. that's just selfish. Mosquito = Selfish retards who Bite innocent poor people just For their kids to grow up and get Eaten by Froggy.

WHY the heck would I care which ones bite? They're still annoying.

This fact is actually useful if you don't want to get a mosquito bite.

7 90% of forks have 4 prongs

This isn't true - 100% of forks have 4 prongs. If it doesn't have 4 prongs, its not a fork.

Obviously. How about one prong? At least if it's a fondue utensil.

8 More people use blue toothbrushes than red ones

Who cares which color your toothbrush is? Most important is that it works properly.

They are many colors of toothbrush.

So...? I have a white and magenta brush.

9 Cats urine glows under a black light

Useful if you have a diabetic cat, so not that useless. But you don't need it for everyday life.

Um I have Cats and all and I didn't need know to this fact.

Just so you don't get confused, black lights are another word for uv lights...

10 A rat can't vomit

And this is why poisons are the most effective method for getting rid of rats, as they can't expel the poison.

The Contenders
11 In 1937 two women wore shorts for the first time out in public and caused a car accident

I don't know who's to blame for this spectacle. The decadent sexist traditionalism of the 1930s or hormones...

Even worse, it's was in Iran... The crash happened because they were angry at the women because they showed there legs

This is hilarious! Does that mean men were driving?

12 in 1977, a 13-year-old child found a tooth growing out of his left foot

I feel sorry for that 13 year old... Lots of people are born with a 6th finger or 6th toe but they are removed at birth... Some people have fingers fused together as well...

Imagine the Dentist trying to get the tooth out of that poor child's foot.

This is a cool fact, but, of course, completely useless.

13 In the original version of Little Red Riding Hood, the wolf and Red Riding Hood eat Grandma together.

Uhh... Isn't that cannibalism if Red Riding Hood eats her own grandmother (I know it isn't with the wolf since a wolf is a wolf).

14 A coat hanger is 44 inches long if straightened

Depends on the size of the coat hanger, or what it's made of.

Who cares about the length of a coat hanger?

Even if they are different sizes?

15 It is impossible to see with your eyes closed.

I still can see with my eyes closed. A world full of darkness.

I could go through my whole life without knowing that.

It's a lie there are archers in oriental countries who can see you even with their eyes closed, blindfolded

16 Only 55% of Americans know the sun is a star.

In the Philippines, we are taught that our flag has three stars, ignoring the fact that there is a sun. The sun is a star so there are four stars in the Philippine flag.

I knew this since I started reading large nonfiction books at the age of 5. How do ADULTS not know this!?

That's sad and weird too. Even weirder than the fact that only female mosquitoes bite.

I've eating entire crickets that were fried and chocolate dipped.

I actually watched a video of something like this. I was thinking it was more recently.

I can't be the only person who thought of 'Secondhand Lions' when I heard this.

20 "Knock" is the world's shortest horror story with only two sentences. It goes, "The last man on Earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock at the door."

Allow me to spoil this 'horror story'. You see, it doesn't say that the man in the story is the last person on Earth. It just says he's the last MAN on Earth. So, it could be the last WOMAN on Earth knocking on the door. Am I the only one here who has thought of this?
