Got any interesting but useless tidbits of knowledge?


Share them here!


Example,

The difference between an autocannon and a minigun is that an autocannon is generally larger calibers, and they usually arent rotary cannons. Meanwhile, miniguns are generally smaller arms and are almost always rotating.

Autocannons fire explosive shells (generally between 20mm and 40mm); while Miniguns fire bullets (specifically, 7.62mm NATO ammunition). Also, Minigun is actually a trademark name of the General Electric (and later, Dillon Aero) M167D 7.62mm electrically-operated Gatling-type rotary multi-barrel machine gun.

There were some people that survived and escaped the Hiroshima atomic bombing just to be struck again when they evacuated to Nagasaki [surviving both].


This post will actually appear at the bottom of this page.

But yeah I have a ton of stuff like this. To remember some...


There's a substance in strawberries that tricks your mind into thinking they're sweet when they're really not.


Espresso has less tannic acid than regular coffee.


Swell is probably initially an abbreviation of 'so well'.


Night of the Living Dead, which is often considered the first zombie movie ever, doesn't actually have a single zombie in it. That word zombie originally related to voodoo and mind control.


But wait none of this is really useless, I think I'm doing this wrong...

I can read the formula, yet does this mean I really know it? Is it knowledge if you can't understand it and apply it within the context as to which it is relevant? Or is it but a memory? Is experience, the basis for knowledge, simply synonymous with education, or do you need to also derive some practical ability from said experience for it to deemed as much, but if so, does that really make it useless after all?


Is there such a thing as useless knowledge?

The gamecube version of Animal Crossing is so small the entire game fits in the system's RAM, meaning the disc can be ejected during a play session without issue.


It also means the game is still playable even if you have a very scratched disc, as you just need to make it past the initial boot.
