    I can't believe how many useless facts I encounter on a regular bases. Let's collect them all here.

    At last check, the governor of Arkansas makes $60,000 a year. His salary is the lowest of all 50 states.

    You must be right. Reading braille is a 2 handed job.

    So if reading braille is a 2 handed job, what does a blind man with no arms do?

    Although for all you know, it could be pitymanass, with a good shave hiding the truth.

    Edit: My search function doesn't work either... does that count as a useless fact?

    Hollee fuck.. Kuba, Agent Smith, Crazlegs and I were having a discussion about blind people and porn the other night.

    What is porn to blind people?

    And then we talked about how to ask insensitive questions on a public message board.

    The outdoor temperature can be estimated to within several degrees by timing the chirps of a cricket. It is done this way: count the number of chirps in a 15-second period, and add 37 to the total. The result will be very close to the actual Fahrenheit temperature. This formula, however, only works in warm weather.

    that's actually not a useless fact. it's very important in terms of stem cells and diversification of a generic cell into specific cell types.
