After Boone posted "did you know Don Shula played CB for the Skins?" it got me thinking we should have a thread for things like that.

EVERYONE knows something cool and random that would be interesting. Something you could use at a party to impress, might help with trivia, etc.

I'll start: Did you know that the drum fill from Phil Collins "in the air tonight" is completely random? He didn't do it to be iconic, he literally just did it to fill in dead space before the chorus. He calls it "barking seals" because that is what he thought it sounded like.


start at about 3:50 for the story, but it is a really cool story overall about the song and where he was at that point in his life.

Andy Garcia, not only Sean Taylor's girlfriends uncle, but was born with a conjoined twin on his shoulder the size of a tennis ball.

The human head weighs 8 lbs.

Actually, for some of you fatheads it could be as much as 12 lbs :)

Greg Blache was the oline coach at Notre Dame when Rudy was there. They were the same age...

While it's the most spoken language in the world (2 billion people), four times as many people speak English as a second language than as a native one.

The Lyrebird is so efficient at mimicking sound, it can even mimic mechanical sounds.

Mr. Rogers once sued Ice Cube over "A Gansta's Fairytale" and collected a nickel per record off of it, because it sampled the theme song from his show.
