posticon Did you know...?


Note: The purpose of this topic is for the posters to come up with a little known fact about something common.

So, did you know that there are only 3 colors present on the face of your computer monitor (CRT type monitor)? These are Red, Blue and Green (this is why it's called an RGB color monitor)...

Re: Did you know...?......Charles Lindberg


Almost everyone knows Charles Lindbergh was the first aviator to fly non-stop across the Atlantic, from New York to Paris. How many people also know he was the first person to develop an artificial heart?

Did you know that the Gatorade commercial, a few months ago, ran one commercial down from the Manson documentary that previewed showing the (X) or nazi swatiska on manson's head--and then the Gatorade commercial would come on showing an athelete with an (X) on his head--and then the words-"what's in you?"

Re: Did you know...?


I didn't know that, but if it's true then you don't need to say "except the poles", because the South Pole is on land and the North Pole is over water.

Is it really true, though? Even for Australia?

Technically (technically, NOT logically), the North Pole and the surrounding area IS land, since it's solid (don't look at me, I didn't write the textbook emoticon ). But yeah, you can stand pretty much anywhere and will be directly opposite a body of water, although there will be some overlap in areas.

Did you know that the color of an object you see is the one color the object is not?

Makes sense, since there are only three types of colour receptors in the retina of the eye, and they respond to those three colours emoticon

Did you know that to colour in the countries on a map so that no two of the same colour ever border each other, you will never need more than four different colours?

This is true for a map of any world you could possibly imagine, not just the Earth. You will never need any more than four colours, no matter how complicated you make the countries' borders. Try it, I dare you emoticon

The United States consumes more energy than India, the Middle East, South America, Africa, South East Asia and Oceania combined - which means more than 3.1 billion people.

plus yeh every colour that we see reflected, we only see since the object obsourbs every other colour, so if we see a blue ball its because the ball absorbs red and green light. anything that make light jus sends out the colourd light - so red light is red light, tho red reflection is the product of green and blue light being obsorubed by the relfecter.
light speed isnt constant either, it moved slower in a vacume (or faster - i forget)
red blue and green apeard on original colour TVs as three raised circles, showing the three colours made by the tv. white is made by all colours of light added together, but brown is made by all physical colours (i.e. paint) mixed together. at least one colour off the olympic flag appears on another flag - there isnt a flag that dosnt share a colour with the olympic flag.

It's faster a little bit. Also, the speed of light is now considered NOT to be the highest possible speed in the cosmos, since quark theory has it that muons, gluons, gravitons etc may theoretically be able to move way faster than light...

Did you know that male and female cats have distinctive meows? Males, aka toms, produce vocalizations that sound like drawn-out whines, whereas the songs of the females become higher in pitch with the duration of the utterance, giving them a rather questioning meow-sound.

Hitler worshipped the sun god as he did the serpent. The serpent seed or super men were supposed to be of the blood line of those who had mated with the demonic angels(the serpent sun god bloodline) of old and produced hybrids. And the supermen were from those who descended from those hybrids. They were supposed to be blond haired, blue eyed, very pale, and perfect gene wise.

Re: Did you know...?


Hitler used it as justification to his people that they were doing the right thing. Basically, he usedsymbols that would impress them and said things that made them nod their heads as a way to keep much of the entire country in a state of virtual mass hysteria. He even said himself, "What good fortune for those in power that people do not think" (sound like anything we're dealing with today? emoticon ).

As for him worshipping the sun god, as far as I know, and as far as the history texts support, Hitler had affiliation with any kind of "forbidden sect" during his rise to power. But the texts don't cover everything.

May I suggest we should keep this thread debate-free?

However, you are more than welcome to open a new thread in the Modern History area in order to discuss about any swastica related issue...

Thank you.

Did you know that people who undergo cataracts operations and have the soft lens in their eye removed gain the ability see ultraviolet light, a form of light invisible to normal humans?

Did you know that this fact was exploited by the OSS (Office of Strategic Services) in World War 2, when they recruited "brave elderly people" who had undergone the operation and used them to spot signals flashed to them by agents using ultraviolet lights, signals which would be completely invisible to the enemy?

Well, now you do emoticon

Whoa, that's pretty cool . . . but isn't it the soft lens that protects our eyes from UV rays?

Did you know that our sun's peak color is yellow, the color of light the human eye is most sensitive to? Theorectically, if the sun was blue, we could stare at it all day without squinting. Of course, we'll never know whether or not that's the case until somebody lands on a planet circling a blue star and stares at the sun.

Yes I think it is. So maybe people who have it removed are more likely to get cancer of the retina or develop other problems? The book I read it in didn't go into details like that -- but it was several decades ago when this was done, and maybe now that they understand things better they are using different (safer) corrective procedures?
