    RE: Totally Useless Facts

    A few useless facts confirmed by the Mythbusters.
    You can sneeze with your eyes open without your eyeball popping out. Of course you have to manually hold your eyelid up.

    You will get wetter running through the rain than you will walking through it.

    If the piece of paper is big enough you can fold it in half 10 times.

    RE: Totally Useless Facts

    My favorite of all time is the hot water heater episode! That was crazy!
    My son and I love to watch that and Dirty Jobs. The new Smash Lab is pretty lame. They do some neat experiments but spend too much time on cameos and drama.

    Those Myth Buster guys have the life. Did you see them driving the Olds over a dirt ramp? That radio they used looked like a 14MZ.

    Sorry, Im a ham... Ham came from a magazine called Home Amateur Mechanic many years ago, back in the days when they used a spark gap transmitter to send CW (continious wave).

    RE: Totally Useless Facts

    Well, thats the way it was told to me anyway. I never heard the ham fisted thing before, but there are maybe 3 or 4 theories in all. I buy the magazine theory because so many old timer hams have told me that one. But hey, I also here that MG was started in a small shop called Mac's Garage, but who know's. lol That one sound weird to me, as I always thought that British Lealand was the maunf, not some dude named Mac ! hahaha !

    RE: Totally Useless Facts

    Disagree, A ping pong ball because it is so light will be slowed more by wind resistance. At a drop of 3' you may not notice the difference. Drop them both from 50' and the tennis ball will hit first. A bowling ball and a golf ball would be a better side by side comparison.

    Last time I checked, when we where messing around with them and dropped them from ten feet onto part of our driveway(now this was when I was younger) it didnt bounce at all. For so reason a 15lbs ball doesnt seem to want to bounce all that much from a 10 foot drop onto pavement. But I'm sure if you added a trampoline to that equation then yes it would bounce. Hehehehe oppsssss. Might have to try that sometime.

    RE: Totally Useless Facts

    They most likely don't bounce in your dirt driveway.
    They bounce awsome off a smooth concrete floor. Almost as good as a basket ball...till they break.

    RE: Totally Useless Facts

    This thread is slowing down......

    A cubic yard of air weighs about 2lbs a sea level.

    At lift off the space shuttle weighs 4.5 million pounds.

    The DC in DC-10 stand for Douglas Commercial.

    If you were to fly around the moon the distance is about the same as a New York to London flight.

    Back in the old "horse & carriage" days, the average speed of a 1-horse-drawn cab in NY City was 7 MPH. In 2007, the average speed of a 300hp taxicab in NY City is 7 MPH.

    That's progress?
