If you may have been had why should we even look at your link? That's a bit like asking someone to put their hand in the fire!!

Have a read of the other "facts". Thats your answer right there.

What total garbage.

  Miros 23:49 23 Oct 2006

Hi, just been out and had a few bevvies so not quite following your comment?

  Totally-braindead 23:51 23 Oct 2006

One of the most ridiculous "facts"
"In 1843, a Parisian street mime got stuck in his imaginary box and consequently died of starvation. " liked this one as well "Every Labrador retriever dreams about bananas"

Must admit some of them are rather funny.

Come on though hijo some of the others are good. When I looked at the one you posted about I did wonder, its just when I saw the others and started to read them.

What about this one "Manatees possess vocal chords which give them the ability to speak like humans, but don't do so because they have no ears with which to hear the sound."

  Miros 23:58 23 Oct 2006

Sorry refuse to look at the above link if that is what you are referring to, so don't have a clue about what you are talking about.
I am at a complete loss. :-(

Miros its just a webpage with some things which are meant to be "facts". Theres nothing untoward in the website its just a spoof, it doesn't do anything to your computer or anything. It doesn't actually have anything to do with spam or anything else. Its humourous thats all.

Lol have another look at this thread once you've sobered up a bit.

We are talking about a website that lists 'facts'.

  Totally-braindead 00:13 24 Oct 2006

This "fact" is particularly apt considering this is a computer forum. Anyone ever wondered why the QWERTY keyboard has the keys set the way they are well heres the answer "The typewriter was invented by Hungarian immigrant Qwert Yuiop, who left his "signature" on the keyboard. "

Good one that. And this one "Coca-Cola was the favored drink of Pharaoh Ramses. An inscription found in his tomb, when translated, was found to be almost identical to the recipe used today. "

Love this website hijo, shame it hasn't been updated for so long.
