The difference between a numerator and a denominator is a short line. Only a fraction of people will understand this!


Fun Fact

Samsung tests phone durability with a butt-shaped robot

Do these interesting facts have you rethinking everything? People stash their phones in their back pockets all the time, which is why Samsung created a robot that is shaped like a butt—and yes, even wears jeans—to “sit” on their phones to make sure they can take the pressure.


History Fact

The Ancient Egyptians used slabs of stone as pillows.

In Ancient Egypt, the head was considered to be the seat of spiritual life and had to be cared after.

So therefore, when getting into bed, the Egyptians would place their heads on a stone with a curve in it.

They were also engraved with images of the Gods and placed under the heads of the dead to ward away bad spirits.


Movie/TV Trivia

Nearly all of the dialogue in The Blair Witch Project was improvised


We really wouldn’t have enjoyed being an actor on the set of The Blair Witch Project. First off, nearly all of the dialogue in the movie was improvised, leaving the cast members to try and ad-lib as much as possible.

Instead of receiving a script, each of them were given a piece of paper at the start of each day with some notes outlining the general narrative for that day’s filming.

Producers decided to turn up the pressure when it came to feeding their actors. Instead of a buffet table, the cast had to track supply crates containing Power Bars, fruit and water using a GPS tracking system.

The merciless director also fed the actors less and less food each day in order to create tension between the cast.

By the end of filming they were only provided with a piece of fruit and some water each day. Sounds a bit like slave labour to us but hey – all in the name of art.
