Internet Trivia

Interesting bits of trivia I've learned from surfing the Internet.

- In the wilderness dusk with crickets chirping in harmony? Count their chirps in 15 seconds. Then add 40. That will give you the air temp in degrees Fahrenheit.

- Combined the 27 countries that make up the European Union still would cover only half of the USA

- In 1946, convenience store chain Tote'm changed its name to 7-Eleven to reflect new, extended hours—7am to 11pm.

- In the 3 yrs since Randy Moss left Oakland, he has 47 Rec TDs. In that same time, the Raiders as a team only have 40 passing TDs

- This was the most interesting factoid of all. It is funny because it is so true.

    Previously I read which type of wonderful things we can see through the internet. Here you have given the interesting facts which we don’t know about trivia such as combining the 27 countries to make up European Union etc. Thanks for sharing the information. Along with this article, I would like to share some important facts about the hammerhead sharks habitat which were a group of sharks that form the family sphyrnidae.
