    Bizarre, almost useless facts

    This link connects to bizarre and almost uselessfacts dealing with crime and punishment, but there are other categories at the top of the page, if crime isn't your thing.

    Some of these are pretty funny...
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Re: Bizarre, almost useless facts

    Can we add more useless facts on the thread? I am the champion of ridiculous facts, mostly animal facts.

    Like, did you know that crows have a sophisticated system of language, pass down information through generations, and maintain two distinctive dialects--one common to crows and the other entirely familial? There is evidence that this language is complicated enough to describe a detailed and foreign object and accurately relay that information generationally.

    ...Yep. There's even a book series to support my addiction--the Imponderables series.

    My husband & I watched a special on ravens where their memory & language was being researched. Someone taught a raven how to bypass security cameras & enter security codes on a number pad, that kind of thing. They named the raven Loki, of all things... and he taught other ravens how to do the things he had learned.

    Had me totally flabbergasted - why on earth would anyone teach a raven to be a mastermind thief... and name him Loki on top of it?

    LMAO - at least they didn't teach them to beat a retina scan by plucking out eyeballs...

    (Hmmm... now I have a tentative future project)
