    Useless bits of information thread

    Did you know, the Mississippi river in North America drains 5,000,000 gallons of water a second into the Gulf of Mexico?

    Did you know that Saudi Arabia imports both sand and camels?
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Eden Gardens is in Calcutta. So it's Eden Gardens, Calcutta like Old Trafford, Manchester.

    Is that what you mean?

    Did you know that Australia is the gayest nation on earth.


    Australia 'world's gayest country'
    23sep03
    MORE than 17 per cent of Australians are involved in gay or lesbian relationships, putting the country equal first in the world for its proportion of homosexuals, according to a new worldwide survey.

    The survey of sexual habits by international condom maker Durex found that together with Americans, Australians had the highest proportion of same-sex relationships.

    At the other end of the scale, Vietnam recorded the lowest proportion of gay and lesbian relationships, at three per cent.

    The company said Australians enjoyed a busy love life, having sex on average 125 times per year.

    Lol. I mistyped. I meant to ask if Dunedin has less than 120 thousand people.

    Basically I'm wondering if that is what is meant by 1,20,000
