Post Useless Information Thread
This is the thread where we find stuff on the Internet that you will probably never need in real life.

Who wants to learn some flag semaphore?

I wholeheartedly support this thread. :3

Here's a radiation dosage chart. Apparently, eating a banana gives you a .1 micro-Seivert dose.

Now we know!

And knowing is half the battle.

Mickey Mouse was once banned in Romania in the year 1935 for fears that the children might be spooked by a 10-foot mouse on the cinema screen.

I will refrain from posting approximatly 99% of all mathematical equations on this thread. just know that it is undeniably true

Mathematical equations are not useless!
Mathematics is a very helpful tool that can be used to describe naturally arising phenomena, quantity, structure, shape, change, and relationships.What constitutes the notion of useless anyway? Mathematical equations are simply there to state the relationship of two expressions. There is also an infinite amount of mathematical equations, so you could not possibly write all the useless ones here anyway. Because mathematical equations can be created indiscriminately, there will be infinite numbers of useless mathematical equations and infinite numbers of useful mathematical equations depending on your definition of useless.

I have an inkling that someone will come here and attempt to disprove this completely...

The uncertainty principle is not really something that everyone has to know. Although it is extremely important in quantum mechanics, most people do not really need to know much about quantum mechanics. Or maybe it is useful and we will need to use it everyday from now on...

I was confused at first when I first saw this, but apparently you're talking about the English voice actor. XD
I've only watched Digimon with English subs, so I never knew.

Anyway, the Japanese seiyuu (voice actor) for Guilmon is the same as Son Goku from Dragon Ball, and is a 75-years-old woman named Masako Nozawa.

Also, any piece of string or pliable, thin and slender thing like rope or earphone cable, that is longer than 46cm will always get tangled if left on its own in a container (like a bag, your pocket etc)

Math equations are indeed useless to the majority of the populace.

Depends what you mean by math equations. Math equations in general are useful to 100% of the population.

The only useless equations are ones that will never be true. For example: x=x+1 . No value of x can satisfy this equation, it can lead to a fallacy of 0=1.

That's a lot of words to type.

It has been scientifically proven that dogs can experience basic jealousy towards others in their species.
Although dogs seem to be really popular as a pet, there is a higher number of pet owners who has a cat in the United States.

Before 1859, baseball umpires were seated in padded chairs behind home plate.

Most toilets flush in E flat.

A reward of $1,000 was offered for information leading to the capture and conviction of a man robbing taxi drivers. The man turned himself in and demanded the reward as a result. He received a 20 year sentence for aggravated robbery instead.
