I’m back on the old interwebs and thinking what kind of blog post should I write about. Then a idea popped in my head, what about a post of some nerdy/geeky facts that you should know. Do you want to impress your date or have a fancy dinner party? Use these facts to up your nerdy game.
“The top of the Eiffel Tower leans away from the sun, as the metal facing the sun heats up and expands. It can move as much as 7 inches.”
“Wayne Enterprises, which is controlled by Batman’s alter ego, Bruce Wayne, owns The Daily Planet, the newspaper that Superman’s alter ego, Clark Kent, works for.”
“The word ‘braniac’ comes from the Superman villain of the same name.”
“There is a Marvel character named Death’s Head who has made appearances in Transformers and Doctor Who, connecting the three universes.”
“At one point in the 1990s, 50% of all CDs produced worldwide were for AOL.”
“How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? The world may never know. But on average, a Licking Machine made at Purdue University needed 364 licks.”
“There’s a video game called Lose/Lose that deletes a random file on your computer every time you kill an enemy.”
“In the video game Pokemon Red & Blue, the three legendary birds Arcticuno, Zapdos and Moltres actually mean “One Two Three” in Spanish! Artic-UNO, Zap-DOS, Mol-TRES.”
“Playing the game Tetris after traumatic events can prevent development of traumatic memories, and reduce the chance of having flashbacks.”
Wow, now those are some facts. Store these in your memory and use them the next time you need them. I hoped you learned something nerdy/geeky because you never know when you might find yourself on the television show Jeopardy. See you next time my nerdy friends.
