    On January 5th, 1919, a giant tank full of 14,000 tons of molasses burst and created a gigantic 30-foot wave of sticky molasses rolling through the streets of Boston, killing 21 people and injuring 150.

    The infamous word testimony, used in courts of law to indicate an oath, is derived from "testicle" because the ancient Greeks were made to swear over their Genitalia instead of their hearts.

    One of the most illegal and potent psychedelic drugs, DMT, is produced naturally in the pineal gland and in many plants. Everyone is guilty of possession. DMT is released when dreaming, and in large amounts just before death. It is thought to be responsible for "near death experiences."

    Back to this bullshit:

    The number of the possible arrangements of a deck of cards:
    52 ! = 8.06581752 × 10^67

    The approximate number of stars atoms in our sun (which is small), alone:
    1.19 x 10^57

    that times 400,000,000,000 is already an order of magnitude off of that claim which is by no means "approximately" .

    It is closer then i thought it would be though :razz:

    There are 80658175170943878571660636856403766975289505440883277824000000000000 ways to organize 52 playing cards.
    I don't know how many atoms are in all the starts in our galaxy, but that's a pretty serious fucking number, and fact.
