    Only three regular polygons can tessellate - the equilateral triangle, the square, and the regular hexagon. All other polygons end up having really crazy looking shapes to make them tessellate.

    Bonus fact: There are 15 different pentagons that can tessellate. Yay!

    Thematically Appropriate given the site: A study of over 15 000 men found the average penis size is 13.12cm (5.16 inches) when erect. And the standard deviation is about 1.66cm (0.65 inches). So that guy talking about his 8 inch dick is in the top 0.3% of people.

    Crazy.

    The (now dwarf) planet Pluto was named by an 11 year old girl named Venetia Burney. Since Pluto was so hard to find, but was predicted to exist, little Venetia suggested it be named after the Roman god of the Underworld due to his ability to turn invisible, much like the planet seemed to be. Her grandfather was a scholar who passed the idea on to the Lowell Observatory (which later found the planet). It stuck and now our littlest planet has a cool name!

    Latin word for 'Wanderers' is 'Planetes'.

    Early astronomers noticed some stars didn't hold their relative position in the star formation like the rest, and instead wandered in various directions across the sky. Hence the wandering stars were known as Planetes. Or..... Planets.

    In The Far Side cartoon Gary Larson coined the spikes at the end of a Stegosaurus as "the Thagomizer". thagomizer.gif

    Paleontologists began referring to the spikes as the Thagomizer and it is now the accepted informal anatomical term within the science.

    On the Gary Larson train, Gary almost got taken to court by Jane Goodall's lawyer and PR staff due to this little number

    The best part? Jane herself found it hilarious, and was shocked that her staff went so far as to threaten legal action against Gary.

    When birds fly in a 'V' formation, one side is always longer than the other.

    The reason is because that side has more birds on it.
