Four men in the history of boxing have been knocked out in the first eleven seconds of the first round.

Not all Golf Balls have 360 dimples. There are some as high as 420. Thereare also all different kinds of dimple patterns.

Bulgaria was the only soccer team in the 1994 World Cup in which all 11 players' last names ended with the letters "OV."

Olympic Badminton rules say that the birdie has to have exactly fourteen feathers.

At 101, Larry Lewis ran the 100 yard dash in 17.8 seconds setting a new world record for runners 100 years old or older. quicker than me

they do nowadays i believe, due to the way the balls are made.

i think when dimples were first introduced it was to stop them going so far.

altho i am no where near confident on that statement, i'm looking at 48-53% confident. tops.

Most animals don't eat moss. It's hard to digest, and it has little nutritional value. But reindeer fill up with lots of moss, because the moss contains a special chemical that helps reindeer keep their body fluids warm. When the reindeer make their yearly journey across the icy Arctic region, the chemical keeps them from freezing-much as antifreeze keeps a car from freezing up in winter.

Wow...
