    Post some random facts. Preferably not commonly known ones.

    I'll start it off.

    The Danish language has no word for "please".

    As a Swede, I can confirm that. Swedes on the other hand, do. It is "snälla". Cause we're not barbarians.

    Nah that's called being: "Under tøflen." Which directly translated is to be under the slipper. But its actual meaning is that the woman is the dominant one in the relationship.

    I remember a while ago at a party, a bunch of people were discussing jokes from their home countries, and apparently this is a common joke both in Egypt and Iran:

    "In my house, the man always has the final word, as long as that word is 'Yes'"

    Cuttlefish and octopus can not only change color, but can deform the actual texture of their skin for camouflage.

    Some cats are actually allergic to humans. (However, it's more often because of the perfume or cologne we wear, or the soap we use.)

    No. It might interest you to know that similar technique is used by yogi to suck semen into their balls instead of having an orgasm. I am sure it works differently but my theory is sound.

    In the 1880s, hosiery businessman LaMarcus Thompson hated that Americans were tempted by hedonistic places like saloons and brothels. So he set out to straighten up one of the most immoral places he could think of: Coney Island in New York. There, he built America’s first roller coaster to give New Yorkers some good, clean fun.
