Did you know that Batman was based on a movie called The Bat that was made in 1959?

LilJz, that simply isn't true. Batman appeared in Detective comics long before the 50's.

Did you know that most of the U.S. debt is not owned by China, but in fact owned by Americans.

Did you know that the Turritopsis Nutricula is the only animal which is technically immortal?
It can revert from a sexually mature state (Medusa) to a sexually infantile state (Polyp) at will.

Hey, hey
Did you know in Star Fox, the so called Barrel Roll is not a Barrel Roll at all? The technique you actually perform is called an Aileron Roll.

No, I did not know.

Did you know that there are apparently 7 characters that were scrapped from Super Smash Bros Brawl known as the Secret 7? They're still in the code but can't be used as it is only around 128 kb.

Eh, already knew that.

Did you know there were more characters than the original characters planned for Super Smash Bros? This consisted of Bowser, Peach, King Dedede, Meowth, Mewtwo, and Pit. In fact, the only reason Jigglypuff is in the game is because they couldn't animate Pit's wings properly.

How about some stupid laws?

Pennsylvania:

- It it illegal to sleep on top of a refrigerator outdoors.

- Any motorist driving along a country road at night must stop every mile and send up a rocket signal, wait 10 minutes for the road to be cleared of livestock, and continue.

- You may not sing in the shower.

- It is illegal to catch a fish with any body part other then your mouth.

Here's some stupid laws.

In some parts of Canada, citizens cannot remove their bandages in public.

Good ole Joysee:

- It is illegal to wear a bullet-proof vest while committing a murder.

- It is against the law for a man to knit during the fishing season...

- You may not slurp your soup.

And in Blairstown...

- No street-side trees may be planted that “obscure the air”.

Did you know your mitochondria in your cells generates ATP by using the electron transport chain?

There are a series of complex proteins that use redox reactions on NADH and FADH2 to pump protons out of the mitochondrial matrix and into the intermembrane space, establishing a proton gradient. The proton gradient is then used to power ATP synthase, an enzyme that catalyzes the phosphorylation of ADP + Pi into ATP.
