    A butt load is 126 gallons. It is a term related to whiskey making.

    IV Is The Roman Numeral designation for 4 everywhere. However, on the clock face, 4 is displayed as “IIII”.

    Researchers found fossils of a "Mega Penguin" that stood over 6ft tall and weighed in at over 250lbs.

    The new decade could also be one year and eleven weeks away depending on who you ask. If you ask me, don't! I'm at the age where I'm in no rush to get through them 😉 I'm content to count down to year's end if it's all the same 😆

    0 vs. 1 origins. Do I sense a movie plot? No.

    Atari, the computer game company, was founded by Go players. An immediate threat to capture in Go is called "atari" in Japanese, and is the origin of the name.

    😂 No, I've just gotten wrapped up in such conversations during previous decade changes, especially the changeover between centuries. Boy, Y2K was much ado about little or nothing. About the only thing that happened to me was a computer game I used at the time revertinf to 1900, lol. I think I watched or listened to 10 maybe 12 countdowns that New Year's Eve day before counting down our own. It was something most of us won't ever see again.

    I think that only applies to 0 and not a number like 20 or 2000 (or 2020).

    The question you have to ask yourself is do you consider someone who is 20 in their 20's?

    The mask Michael Myers wore was actually a William Shatner mask that was painted white, with the hair spray painted a darker brown and the eyes enlarged.

    The sky is not blue because it reflects the ocean. The sky is blue because air particles scatter more blue light than red light. "What about sunrise and sunset?" Because the suns light is focused on a much narrow portion of the earth (depending on viewer vantage point of course) more light is filtered through less air particles allowing the red light spectrum to be seen.

    Useless for most - but I found rather educational!! Cheers

    If the axiom of choice is true, one can cut up a solid ball into 5 bits; reassemble that parts; and end up with 2 balls the same size and shape as the original. It's known as the Banach Tarski Paradox, giving rise to my favourite joke.
