    Old concept, new thread. Give us a fact that you believe you're the only one here to know. No re-hashed nasty rubbish spam mails we've all seen a million times. Just one single fact you believe you're the only possessor of. Doesn't matter what it is about.

    No punishment if you're not the only one to know it, but give it some thought and lets all learn something new.

    I'll start us off:

    Water is one of the few substances that expands when it freezes. If it didnt do that, all life on earth would end(Or more accurately, would never have developed in the first place...).

    The only NASA space shuttle to have ever landed in the UK is the Enterprise. It was transported to the UK on the back of a 747 as part of a NASA PR excercise. Unfortunately, as a space shuttle, it never actually made it into space (it was used as a test vehicle for space shuttle technology).

    Its best if you get a mate to say "they can", then you say "they cant", then your mate "they can" etc in front of a girl, by the time youve done this 3 times the girl will ask what your talking about.

    You can either say "girls cant touch their shoulder blades together"

    Or tell them that they cant lick their elbows, they will try. Then when you say the shoulder blade thing they wont be expecting it :D
