Fun facts

I just ran across some very funny "facts" while playing Portal 2, some of them are:

Quote:
  • The square root of rope is string.
  • Humans can survive underwater. But not for very long.
  • Whales are twice as intelligent, and three times as delicious, as humans.
  • In Greek myth, Prometheus stole fire from the Gods and gave it to humankind. The jewelry he kept for himself.
  • The Schrodinger's cat paradox outlines a situation in which a cat in a box must be considered, for all intents and purposes, simultaneously alive and dead. Schrodinger created this paradox as a justification for killing cats.
  • Marie Curie invented the theory of radioactivity, the treatment of radioactivity, and dying of radioactivity.
  • In 1948, at the request of a dying boy, baseball legend Babe Ruth ate seventy-five hot dogs, then died of hot dog poisoning.
  • The automobile brake was not invented until 1895. Before this, someone had to remain in the car at all times, driving in circles until passengers returned from their errands.
  • Edmund Hillary, the first person to climb Mount Everest, did so accidentally while chasing a bird.
  • The first person to prove that cow's milk is drinkable was very, very thirsty.
  • Before the invention of scrambled eggs in 1912, the typical breakfast was either whole eggs still in the shell or scrambled rocks.
  • During the Great Depression, the Tennessee Valley Authority outlawed pet rabbits, forcing many to hot glue-gun long ears onto their pet mice.
  • Dreams are the subconscious mind's way of reminding people to go to school naked and have their teeth fall out.
