Did you know that there are two different types of Rugby? Rugby Union and Rugby League. The latter was created in Sydney, Australia, in 1908. Having already dominated much of the Pacific, the game is currently quickly gaining intercontinental attention, including in the USA and Canada, who are expected to have their own first grade teams soon, and both countries already have international representation. When Rugby League broke away from Rugby Union, they intially had the same rules, but as both games evolved, they both developed slightly different rules, including the number of players on the field

Did you know that you can calculate squares that end with a 5 easily?

Take whatever number is front of it, then multiply by the next number, then add 25 at the end.

For example, 55^2 = 5 X 6 (-25) = 3025.

805^2 = 80 X 81 (-25) = 648025.

No complete Olmec skeleton has been found. What appear to be sacrificial remains have appeared at various sites and the 1942 Stirling expedition recovered a skeleton that was photographed -according to Díaz Igancio Bernal IIRC- but it crumbled quickly. The femur's form indicates its Amerindian.

I didn’t knew it.

Did you know that...

More than half of the world has a communist past, the longest dictatorships are communist dictatorships (Cuba, Soviet Union, North Korea, Spanish 2nd Republic... etc) Almost all of them gained power after creating a war, almos all of them killed and tortured their oppositors, civils, and religious people, some of them in Gulags (or in symilar death camps) and some other fusilated.
To sumarize, communism has killed more than 1.000.000.000 people in 100 years.

I don't know why you need to record water collection, but anyway. That's interesting...

Did you know that, according to Wikipedia, the reason why each Australian state has a different rail gauge is whilst they oroginally intended the entire continent because before federation, as the states were independent colonies, they thought that since everyone would have to disembark from the train to go through customs and quarantine, it made no difference whether the trains had the same gauge with eachother, as it made no difference whether the same train continued out of its colony or if everyone had the change trains. Thanks to the sheer size and remotness of Australia, the number of rail and length of rail tracks in each gauge (thousands of kilometres of each guage), short-sightedness and the vicious cycle of new trains being built to fit the old tracks and tracks requiring to fit the old trains, we're still stuck with this system more than 100 years after federation

Anyways, DYK that New Zealand's township of Whangamomona, in Stratford, jokingly declared it's independence from New Zealand on the 1st of November 1989, after getting miffed that their borders were redrawn to be part of the Manawatu-Wanganui region instead of the Taranaki region? This culminates in an biennial "presidential election" on the 1st of November, resulting in such amazing presidents as "Billy Gumboot the Goat", a goat, "Tai" the poodle, and "Murtle the Turtle" was was the local garage owner, and presumably a tad off his rocker.
