    I read that fact about the elbow in my High School Agenda.

    -Britney Spears is crap.
    I would've said Britney Spears sucks, but then, some of you guys would start saying, " Oh yeah, she sucks...she sucked my cock!".

    Every 13 years there is a massive migration of scorpians south from arizona to mexico, they return 3 months later. Nobody knows why they do this.

    On the equater water doesnt spin at all, often leading to cloggs in sinks that can be fixed by carrying the sink several miles north or south.

    there is a rumor that Napolean was very small (3feet something i think) but later they found out that the french "foot" was longer than the "standard" foot, which is 12 inches, 30cm. napolean was normal sized.


    Man never went to the moon. All the proof is real: http://www.ufos-aliens.co.uk/cosmicapollo.html

    if u have real player you can watch the foortage...from Nasa an another psace company...pawned. Nasa lied.

    NOW, tell me neptune aint cool!

    Neptune!

    1
    Neptune's moon, Triton, is slowly getting closer to Neptune. Eventually, it will get so close that it will get torn apart by Neptune's gravity and possibly form rings more spectacular than Saturn's.

    2
    The strongest winds in the Solar System have been recorded on Neptune, at speeds of up to 2,000 kilometres per hour.

    3
    Neptune has dark spots similar to the Great Red Spot on Jupiter. These are areas of high atmospheric pressure which force clouds of methane gas high up into the atmosphere, appearing like cirrus (thin, whispy) clouds on Earth. However, these spots disappear and reappear on different parts of the planet, unlike Jupiter's spot.

    4
    Neptune sometimes orbits the Sun further away than Pluto making it the most distant planet in the Solar System. It returned to its usual position as the second furthest planet away from the Sun in December 1999.

    5
    Triton orbits Neptune in the opposite direction to the planet's rotation. It is the only large moon in the Solar System to do this.

    6
    Neptune has four faint rings. Some parts of these rings are brighter in areas than others and appear like arcs orbiting the planet. Maybe they are still forming.

    7
    Since its discovery in 1846, Neptune has not yet completed a full orbit. In fact, it takes 165 years for the planet to go around the Sun.

    8
    Neptune was discovered when scientists noticed something peculiar about Uranus' orbit, believing something to be pulling it in the opposite direction to the Sun's pull of gravity. They calculated the position of a planet and soon afterwards, discovered Neptune.

    9
    The coldest temperatures measured in the Solar System (-230°c) have been recorded on Neptune's moon, Triton.

    10
    Pluto, a planet which has an orbit which sometimes crosses Neptune's, may have been a moon of Neptune which escaped the planet's pull of gravity, but being prevented from escaping the Solar System by the gravitational pull of the Sun.

    heres my two pence, i think we did go to the moon. but i dont think the footage we get shown is actually what happened.
    think about it, if something went wrong - NASA would look like real poncies.
    especially with the tension between the USA and russia and the race to space n'all...
    so mebbe somethin Fked up, coz if u have a look at that site they got some good points.

    but.. where did the moonrock come from? :D
