    They're also prime candidates of Japanese porn. Speaking of random Japanese porn facts, Bukkake literally means like a splash and it was used as a punishment for infidelity in relationships. :blobpeek:

    I got it from my friend and sometimes it randomly pop up in my mind everytime I saw lumberjack character, gonna directly copy his bits

    The flannel shirt has a rich history. It was originally worn in Wales in the 17th century by farmers and made of wool to keep them warm. As flannel shirts have Welsh and Scottish roots, it’s easy to see why they would be associated with the tartan pattern that is a well-known part of those cultures. The tartan pattern evolved into plaid when American and British manufacturers began to replicate these traditional looks. Later, the flannel shirt was popularized in America by Hamilton Carhartt, who was innovating functional clothing for railroad workers; the flannel shirt was an ideal choice. The plaid print had long been associated with the flannel shirt, and so it became the traditional look for this particular piece of clothing.

    Abbra Cadabra is actually a phrase used on ancient amulets for protection, though it's true origins are unknown, it was theorized to be used by the gnostics to prevent misfortune and call on spirits' protection.

    The gnostics, we're once considered a sect of early Christians who believed in mysticism and the god Abraxas. Abraxas being a god, like the Hebrew god, except he embraced good AND evil. Abraxas is now considered a demon by modern day Christians.

    Being a male spotted hyena sucks ass.
    They're basically there just to help breed, as it is a female-run system (or matriarch).
    Female Spotted hyenas are so much more dominant, they even have higher testosterone than the males, they even have penises. On that note, females could die giving birth since it's hard to do, due to them having only about one inch of space. A lot of the babies die too. They die of suffocation along with their mama.

    Same with bees too; all female-run.

    I'm angry at this comment, but I'm sad at Arc-chan being gone... T.T

    With this out of the way... Useless facts!

    Expected Win% at Solitaire, assuming draw of 3 cards at a time, and that you always play perfectly, is of about 82%, yet people often times say that the win% is close to 15% and that anyone saying otherwise is lying.

    Out of the 32000 original Freecell games released for Windows, only 1 of them was unwinnable.

    At the original minesweeper of Windows, it was impossible to get a one-click win at the beginner difficulty, this happened because the games were not generated by a 100% random generator, but by a generator that worked with a limited number of games.
    In fact, the dedicated minesweeper community actually found out what were the easiest Intermediate Minesweeper Games and found ways to regularly reach them, allowing them to break their records by simply playing the same game multiple times over the course of a few days (best score using this method was about 6s, which is better than the current world-record, which has been held since 2012).
    This led to the creation of Minesweeper Clones that used true random generators to create the game boards.

    The creator of the Binding of Isaac Game has made 1 DLC, 1 remake, and 3 DLCs for the remake of the game... Each one was announced as the final DLC of the game, yet he kept making more anyways.
    Due to that, Repentance, the final DLC of the game, is listed as "Final (?) DLC" in the Isaac subreddit.
    ... Though this one really looks like it's the final one.

    There are more non-H touhou doujinshis translated to English than there are R-18 ones.
