The length of a day 900 million years ago was only about 18 hours. - 1996 study . A solar year contains 365 days, 5 hr, 48 min, and 45.5 sec. Blue whales are the largest animals of all time. A blue whale can spout water up to 9 meters (30 ft) high. (approximately a 3-story high building). The word "dollar" comes from the old German Daler or Taler, an abbreviation of joachimsthaler, the name of a silver coin, imprinted with an effigy of St. Joachim, which was first struck (1519) in what is now Germany. Bacteria associated with the human body outnumber body cells by ten to one. In just one second the Sun emits more energy than humans have used in the last 10,000 years. ::thank you for your time::

Hmmmm... Yeah, maybe they're useless. Except for the last one. Don't you think it's such a waste that we're not making the most of the energy that is freely given to us? I think we have to do something about it, though I'm not sure what.

I wouldn't say if these informations are really useless. As I read those, my first reaction was, 'really?' then it was changed to 'so what?' and then 'ah ok' =)
