Trivia .....

Post  gus on Mon 10 Jan 2011, 1:50 pm

First topic message reminder :

What does everone think about a TRIVIA thread

Stuff that maybe of no use to most people but really handy to the others. Maybe a good DVD ,something they have made,seen ,heard of ,
cooked ,been too .Minor things that do not really warrant a post of there own.(like most of my stuff ,there beat you to it )
Like taking a tractor tyre up north to float your Bandit across a river to a football selection ,the taste of beer ,who's state is
better at Rugby League. Laughing (may be not that) .Something that may make someone else say ,"why didnt i think of that".

Good idea or just post it on "off topic discussions " or not post it at all? (feeling vulnerable now )

Due to its high degree of microporosity, just 1 gram of activated charcoal has a surface area in excess of 500 m2, or about one tenth the size of a football field. Shocked

If the Earth was shrunk down to the size of a basketball, the the biosphere (the area in the sea, air and land where all life is found) would be the thickness of a layer of varnish. The soil layer would only be an atom thick.

well it would cut down on maintenance. Suzuki have been quiet of late, one GP bike, minor updates to the GSXR and the competition releasing sport tourers to compete with BMW, Honda etc. Now if they managed to make it a shafty with SSSA*, I would be very tempted.
