post your usless facts!

here are some to start...

The first person to die in the electric chair was William Kemmler, an ax murderer from New York on August 6, 1890.

A surfer once sued another surfer for "stealing his wave." The case was thrown out because the court was unable to put a price on "pain and suffering" endured by the surfer watching someone else ride "his" wave.

In Singapore, it is illegal to sell or own chewing gum.

A dime has 118 ridges around the edge.

Actress Jamie Lee Curtis invented a special diaper for babies that has a pocket.

Americans did not commonly use forks until after the Civil War.

A 13-year-old boy in India produced winged beetles in his urine after hatching the eggs in his body.

Being unmarried can shorten a man's life by ten years.

In 1907, on New Year's Eve, the original ball that was lowered in Times Square was made of wood and iron and had 100 light bulbs on it.

AND FOR THE FINAL ONE...

A man named Charles Osborne had the hiccups for approximately sixty-nine years.
