You can learn a lot of useless info from Snapple. It's downright tasty as well.  

Snapple Corps apple01 I wonder what they put out on that label? two-virgins

 

In all seriousness though, I found this fact from that site quite cool:

The first spam message was transmitted over telegraph wires in 1864.

I learnt 'Stockholm Syndrome' last night. a-hard-days-night-george-4

NOT the One Directionless song, of course. I didn't even know there was one. I mean this one.a-hard-days-night-john-6

It's a lot more impressive-sounding than it really is.

Every time I see little kids out and about it reinforces my decision never to have kids on my own.  

...on a plane, in a restaurant, in a grocery store... Yep - other people's crying brats are the safest, most effective form of birth control known to mankind. I'll take a dog over a kid any day.

It would be nice if orphans from an overpopulated area could be adopted into areas with negative population growth. Bit off topic but the kid talk made me think about how I learned that some countries are experiencing negative population growth.

The last time that Mr. Potato Head was sold with a pipe as an accessory was in 1987.  This was in response to pressure from Surgeon General C. Everett Coop.  Mr. Potato Head handed his pipe over to Dr. Coop during a press conference for the Great American Smokeout.

In tribute to the great Big Ben which won't ring its bells for four years from now on: Today, I've learnt that Big Ben has an own, albeit unofficial, twitter account with about 500k followers in which the rings of the bell which can be heard hourly are visualised in a very creative way...

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

I fail to see the issue with Big Ben not ringing for 4 years. Why this would bother anyone is beyond my intelligence and understanding.

But mmm it's the symbol of England in gener.... oh wait I don't really care either.

 

I bet the people living around it will be happy to not hear it for a few years, and if they're upset at least they can wipe their tears away with the millions of pound notes that their place is worth.

People go on about how it rang during the last 500 years or whatever. What do you expect, its a fucking bell?! It's not going to climb into a Bomber and go join a raid on Nazi factories in 1942.

As for all those who go on about the tradition;

Blackadder: Baldrick, get the door.

[there is a crash and Baldrick enters with the door]

Blackadder: Now, Baldrick, I advise you to make whatever explanation you are about to give exceptionally good.

Baldrick: You said get the door.

Blackadder: Not good enough, you're fired.

Baldrick: But, my Lord, I've been in your family since 1532.

Blackadder: So has syphilis. Now get out.

12 full chimes. Nice.

But the experience isn't the same when I am listening to it down by the lake near my house. I need cabs, people, taxis, Westminster Bridge, and a pub nearby.

Give you a biscuit and you want a whole meal!!

(I was going to see "give a girl" referencing the Girl in Ahhh Girl but in this day and age I'd probably be screamed at for being sexist and have people hunt me down and get me sacked.)
