    What some facts?

    I love hearing facts and it can be anything. I usually write stuff on index cards and then learn them until there pounded in my head. It can be anything really. For instance, the goldfish has a memory span of 3 seconds.

    edit: what are some facts i meant.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    Here's a gaming one:

    Online gaming isn't as recent a development as you may think; in the '90s, a modem peripheral called the Satellaview was released for the Super Nintendo. It let gamers download gaming news and specially-designed games. They were mostly remakes of retro classics.

    That angry birds fact wouldn't nearly be as utterly pathetic if you were to combine the amount of time people have played WoW.

    A Chinese man once sued his wife for being ugly. And won

    Not so much a 'fact' but a funny and true story.

    Well... technically she was lying to him. I wouldn't want to be married to someone who had 100 grand worth of plastic surgery either.
