I Bet You Didn't Know This Game

Post by Cheesy Pie » July 25th, 2011, 8:36 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.
I bet you didn't know that all the asteroids combined only have a mass on about 4% of that of the Moon.
100% of deaths are somehow caused by science.
Don't be a statistic.
Don't do science.
