Postby Cheesy Pie on Mon Jul 25, 2011 11:36 am

This is the I Bet You Didn't Know This Game. You post a random fact, following "I Bet You Didn't Know". Then the next person posts if they already knew that or not, then another "I bet you didn't know that (insert fact here.)
Ex.
P1: I bet you didn't know that Jupiter doesn't have seasons.
P2: I did.
I bet you didn't know that kamikaze actually means "divine wind."
P3: I didn't.
I bet you didn't know that brown dwarfs fuse deuterium.

Alright I'll start.
