Getting back to the subject of this thread... did you know that a good programmer is someone who looks both ways before crossing a one-way street? :)

Nice one, Perplexus!

Did you know that Chopin didn't give any programmatic titles to his pieces? He always preferred to refer to them by opus and number; he thought that the idea of artificializing the music of a piece with a title was repulsive.

That's not to say, though, that programmatic titles can't reveal a lot ofabout the music!

edit - My God, I'm tired today...

did you know...


that eating before swimming is really not harmful at all. The common misconception is that one should not eat before swimming. The only harm in this is that you will feel uncomfortable but it is not hazardous to your health. :)

The shortest scheduled flight in the world is one and a half miles long from Westray to Papa Westray in the Orkney Islands of Scotland. The journey takes 1 minute 14 seconds to complete.

I'm in high school right now and I've never heard that before. Then again, the people I talk to are likely to make math puns involving approaching limits the right way (if you get that, congratulations!), or jokes like that one I posted in the Joke of the Day thread yesterday.


I hang out with a lot of math students at my university because we're in the same faculty, I can barely go a full hour without a math pun.

But, fun fact, there are just over π*10^7 seconds in a year.

Nice! :)

There is approximately one mole mL of water in the Pacific ocean :)


Relative atomic mass of water = 14

mL = 1cm^3

Density of water is 1g/1cm^3

So there is 1g of water in 1mL

and 1/14 moles in that 1g

Using Avogadro's number 6.022 x 10^23

We can find the no. of atoms in that 1g of water

6.022 x 10^23 x 1/14 = approx. 4.30 x 10^22 atoms in 1g or 1mL of water.
