It may be the smallest possible unit of time if spacetime is quantized. If not, then who knows what shorter unit we might sometime need.

Yeah, I think that space and time will eventually be shown to be quantized. It just fits together so elegantly. But regardless it remains the smallest defined unit of time(so far)

on "I Dream if Genie" Barbara Eden's belly button is never shown

Maybe she didn't have one!! :innocent:

If so, then she's in good company......

Alfred Hitchcock didn't have a belly button. It was eliminated when he was sewn up after surgery.

The largest number ever used by mathematicians for a purpose is called Graham's number. It is the most possible ways to shade a hypercube. If you tried to write this number down and put one digit in a plank volume (theoretically the smallest volume possible) you would run out of plank volumes in the observable universe before you finished writing it. This is not a small number

if his father hadn't change his name in 1877, Hitler's name would have been Adolf Schicklgruber.

Heil Schicklgruber just doesn't have the same ring

I haven't been posting very much onto this thread because I've been enjoying everybody else's posts too much. :passifier: Hopefully the following will make up for it.

1. Apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking you up in the morning.

2. Alfred Hitchcock didn't have a belly button.

3. A pack-a-day smoker will lose approximately 2 teeth every 10 years.

4. People do not get sick from cold weather; it's from being indoors a lot more.

5. When you sneeze, all bodily functions stop, even your heart!

6. Only 7 percent of the population are lefties.

7. Forty people are sent to hospital for dog bites every minute. (Somebody would need to catch that dog!)

8. Babies are born without kneecaps. They don't appear until they are 2-6 years old.

9. The average person over 50 will have spent 5 years waiting in lines.

10. The toothbrush was invented in 1498.

11. The average housefly lives for one month.

12. 40,000 Americans are injured by toilets each year. (The mind boggles!)

13. A coat hanger is 44 inches long when straightened.

14. The average computer user blinks 7 times a minute.

15. Your feet are bigger in the afternoon than at any other time of day. (I mean, honestly, who needs to know this?)

16. Most of us have eaten a spider in our sleep. (And delicious they are too!)

17. The REAL reason ostriches stick their heads in the sand is to search for water.

18. The only two animals that can see behind themselves without turning their heads are the rabbit and the parrot. (I thought fish could as well)

19. John Travolta turned down the starring roles in 'An Officer and a Gentleman' and 'Tootsie'.

20. Michael Jackson owned the rights to the South Carolina State anthem.

21. In most television commercials advertising milk, a mixture of white paint and a little thinner is used in place of the milk.

22. Prince Charles and Prince William NEVER travel on the same airplane, just in case there is a crash.

23. The first Harley Davidson motorcycle, built in 1903, used a tomato can for a carburetor.

24. Most hospitals make money by selling the umbilical cords cut from women who give birth. They are used in vein transplant surgery.

25. Humphrey Bogart was related to Princess Diana. They were 7th cousins.

26. If they didn't add coloring to Coca-Cola, it would be green.

Five of the last eight popes died in years when Wales won the Six Nations rugby tournament.

(Now you know why the Pope's never been seen wearing a red rugby shirt!)

The felt tip pen was invented by the American C.I.A. in an attempt to make a poison pen. The poison would not flow through a fountain pen.

The paper used in making U.S. currency is made (70%) from blue jean pants remnants.

The Q in Q-tips stands for Quantum.

"Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo"

is the longest grammatically correct sentence in the English language made up of homonyms and homophones...

parsing it out makes the meaning clearer:

the parsed sentence reads as a claim that bison who are intimidated or bullied by bison are themselves intimidating or bullying bison (at least in the city of Buffalo– implicitly, Buffalo, NY):

  1. Buffalo buffalo (buffalo from Buffalo NY) [that] Buffalo buffalo buffalo (that the buffalo from Buffalo NY bully) buffalo Buffalo buffalo (are bullying buffalo from Buffalo NY)
  2. [Those] buffalo(es) from Buffalo [that are intimidated by] buffalo(es) from Buffalo intimidate buffalo(es) from Buffalo.
  3. Bison from Buffalo, New York, who are intimidated by other bison in their community, also happen to intimidate other bison in their community.
  4. The buffalo from Buffalo who are buffaloed by buffalo from Buffalo, buffalo (verb) other buffalo from Buffalo.
  5. Buffalo buffalo (main clause subject) [that] Buffalo buffalo (subordinate clause subject) buffalo (subordinate clause verb) buffalo (main clause verb) Buffalo buffalo (main clause direct object).
