Hey guys,
Everyone's fascinated by facts, and I thought we deserve such a thread. The rule is simple: The thread is limited to only one fact per day (which begins at 6.00 am in the morning, unlike 12.00 am as in reality). However, discussions about the fact are welcome.


So, I'll start it off with a funny one:

Charlie Chaplin once won 3rd Prize in a 'Charlie Chaplin look-alike contest'.

^Lucky Number Slevin movie has a reference to this fact. Never thought it was true, but thanks to this thread, it really is true.

I'm not entirely sure, but I checked with 3 sources which claimed that he won 3rd :P

Everyone would post facts, and it might become a little cluttered like the "Your quote of the day" thread. That's what I feared for.

Of the day? Really? Also, point is to talk about facts other might not know. We don't want facts like "sun rises from east" in this thread. Kthxbye

Fact of the day:

The Happy Birthday song that we all know very well and the whole world sings for birthdays is actually patented.

Okay, I guess it would be better if the rule can be changed to one fact per person, per day. What do you guys think?

Yeah, my fact: 12+1=11+2, but if you write "twelve plus one," and rearrange the letters, "twelve plus one=eleven plus two!"

No, that's a plausible case, but not a fact yet. Not enough evidence.

?? All I see is that there are twenty new threads created after this thread. URL analysis does not say much. Then again, may be you are sherlock holmes.

You didnt have to look that far to the right. The beginning would suffice.

Well, if movie discussion, mobile phone thread and others can work, I don't see a reason why thread about facts won't work on a gaming forum? I mean yes, chances are pretty high, but it is still not a fact. Most probable and the actual result might be different.
