Right. It was a blue-blooded moon.
That’s a pretty epic post.
For my debut here, I didn't know last night about "The Dab" dance. I saw it a whole lot and didn't know what it was. I am not one of the cool kids, and I'll be the last to understand a joke or a meme. So... I didn't know about The Dab until I saw a YouTube video on it. I actually just didn't know what that dance move was called.

Actor who played Peter Parker's boss in the first two Spiderman movies--that newspaper editor guy.
The Human body is roughly 125,822 calories.
So you advise roasting small parts at a time for my meals?
Why roast? Frying brings out the best in the flavour.
I’d like to know what is considered an average human body by which this calculation was made.
I’ve burnt 7k calories on a bike ride before, that’s a substantial amount of self to lose in a day, especially for somebody of a lean 65kg like myself.
I see. Thank you for the advice. Is that pan fried or deep fried and battered?
Choice is yours. I would go with pan fried, with some honey, personally.
One assumes the person being eaten is bitter...
No no honey can be good with meat. Don't tell me you have never had honey roast ham before unless you don't eat ham at all.
It was a clever play on the multiple definitions of "bitter"; or maybe it wasn't [clever]...
It was actually really clever. I think Lizard is just salty (or sour) about it.
I know this, if only I can remember it when I need it:
The mass of a Higgs boson is 0.0000000000000000000003 grams.
You cant smell your own house due to a survival instinct called 'olfactory adaptation'. The Brain is always looking for new or unusual smells as a sign of danger, so it ignores familiar smells.
The Dinosaur noises in Jurassic Park were made from recordings of Tortoise sex.
You can be denied citizenship in Switzerland for being 'too annoying'.
Volkswagen owns Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Audi, Ducati and Porsche.
In 1989, Mike Tyson offered a zookeeper $10,000 to let him fight a dominant male Gorilla, the zookeeper declined.
I would imagine nearly everyone on this website knows that.
Just in case though eh.
There was a time I didn't know this:
It's = It is.
Its = belonging to it.
It's not its - what? The apostrophe, of course.
In the same way as his hers and yours aren't hi's her's and your's, because they're pronouns.
I knew they sounded familiar...
Anyway, I wondered if GTP member identification numbers (displayed when quoting a post) were a set number of digits (I recall only ever seeing 6) or if the number of digits scaled as needed. So in checking to see whether site founder @Jordan was 1 or 000001, I found out he's 658. Who are the 657 that came before him?
As I was trying to design a historically-accurate skin for one 1980s car, I wondered what Denim was. After seeing an F1 car's livery with Denim on it, I learned the Denim in question was Denim After Shave. There was a BMW M1 Procar that even had Denim livery. So I learned Denim is a company that makes toiletries.
The length of ID numbers grow as needed. They are in chronological order with the exception of the first few thousand posts, users, and threads.
The early IDs are not in order because of our first forum software conversion from Ikonboard to vBulletin in late 2001. The conversion software, which imported the Ikonboard data into vBulletin's database, preserved the original dates but did not process the data chronologically. This is why the first thread has an ID of 56, the first post in the first thread has an ID of 1222, and why my account has an ID of 658.
@Jordan's Other Account has the ID of '1' because it was the account I had to create during the vBulletin installation process (you had to install the board before you could import data from another platform into it). That account was not deleted during the import, so once that process was completed, I was left with two accounts. Account merging wasn't a feature in vBulletin back then, so I just kept using my original account... and I still am, 17 years later.
Having 2 accounts is against the rules.
The nobles and aristocracy these days. Different rules for them.
I've heard "bespoke" a lot. Basically, I learned "bespoke" means "custom-made." I actually kind of knew that to begin with, but had to be reminded of that.
Today I just learned that there is a quasi-weight restriction for F1 pilots. I'd never become a F1 pilot since I'm nearly twice as heavy as them, and also probably way too broad for the cockpits.
Well, now I do know that I should not keep pursuing that career any longer.
Colin Jackson, the Welsh guy who also holds the 60m hurdles world record?
The very one. Talented chap.
