Why? Do their sombreros get in the way??

Manute Bol very likely was the original source of the phrase "my bad" (instead of "my fault").
However he was DEFINITELY the only NBA player to have ever killed a lion with a spear.
He was also once fined $25k for skipping two exhibition games to attend peace talks with Sudanese rebel leaders.

"However, let's say some aliens were passing by Earth one day and, for whatever reason, perhaps as an experiment, much as one might experiment on a rat, decided to impregnate Mary. It would be at least as likely, if not much more so, than saying that "God" had anything to do with it."
Or just for a luagh they checked out the default religion of those monkeymen and posed as an Angel and a God... truly this would please Douglas Adams, as this is Teasing taken to a sublime next level...
"Hey guys, let's stop by that forsaken planet again out in the western spiral arm, I've got an idea. We'll find some poor soul nobody's ever going to beleive..."
"No hear me out. We get this chick, right, and kid her on that, say, you're her God and I'm an Angel and she's due to sprog out the planet's half-God, half-Man, saviour..."
"I like the way your mind works, bro!"
"Just leave out the silly antenna and the "meep-meep noises, OK? Too downmarket for Gods."

If you hold a tampon in your mouth for a minute the flavour of anything you eat afterwards becomes much more intense.

I've needed that knowledge to understand quite a few sentences I've read or heard in life. I'd call it a plain ol' definition more than a useless piece of trivia.
Former Irish leader Seán Lemass liked to smoke a pipe. Now there's useless for you.

Here's useless... Popeye's religious affiliation is quaker.

Anthony Perkins was NOT in the shower scene in Psycho. Hitchcock used an extra because Perkins' silhouette might have been recognized.
