Possibly useless facts...

We like to think that window glass is transparent, but the thicker the glass gets, the less transparent it becomes because of impurities in the glass. However, the glass in an optical fiber has far fewer impurities than window-pane glass. It is so clear that if you were on top of an ocean five miles deep of solid core optical fiber glass, you could see the bottom clearly. Wow! Yes, I received this in an email -- interesting but to most of us -useless. When was the last time you had 5 miles of ocean underneath you (sailors excepted here)? Do you have a useless fact to contribute to our general knowledge. Be warned, don't make things up, I like to do research!
