Richard the Lionhearted King of England, of Robin Hood and the crusades fame, only spent three months of his reign in England. He was also a homosexual.

The short-term memory capacity for most people is between five and nine items or digits. This is one reason that phone numbers were kept to seven digits for so long.

Golf was banned in England in 1457 because it was considered a distraction from the serious pursuit of archery (should have stayed that way) ;)

In the movie "Toy Story", the carpet designs in Sid's hallway is the same as the carpet designs in "The Shining."

Crane Flies (Daddy Long Legs) carry the most poisonous and fast acting venom known - but in a cruel (as only God can be) twist of fate, they have no teeth with which to inject it. Therefore they keep getting their legs ripped off by small, sadistic children...
