Random Facts
I.) Spongebob Squarepants started
out as a cartoon because
Nickelodeon figured that a show in
which none of the main characters are
kids wouldn' t last. Also, the show' s
creator thought he couldn' t come up
with enough ideas to make it last for
more than twenty or so episodes.
Needless to say, the show was a
surprising success when it first aired
in 1999. The animation quality greatly
increased between seasons one and
two because they started to put more
money into it.
Is ‘to
I call me WHAT? ,
3.) Listening to Mozart' s music does
not make you smarter. It does arouse
you, temporarily boosting your
performance in many areas, but that
can be accomplished with many
different things. One study found
people doing better on IQ tests after
watching porn, more so than listening
to Mozart!
S.) In Colombia, if you make the OK
sign with your hand and place it near
your nose, you' re implying that you
or somebody else is homosexual.
In Italy, if a man flicks his ear, he' s
implying that some other man is
effeminate. In Brazil, if you see a girl
you think is hot, you can show it by
pretending to hold a telescope to your
eye. That' s like an American guy
raising his eyebrows at a woman.

Due to constriction of the inferior alveolar nerve as it passes through the mandible foramen on its way to the tongue, there is only a limited combination of sounds that a human being can make. For example, it is physically impossible to pronounce the words "eye", "laws", "dug" and "aim" in sequence.

In China, if you masturbate in public and your penis is bigger than or equal to 14 cm, you receive a free bottle of champagne.

In Japan, wives consider it to be perfectly normal if their husbands have sex with a prostitute.

In Mongolia, if you flip your pinkie at an adult man, you're inviting them to a duel to the death.

In Uzbekistan you can say that you enjoyed a meal very much by putting your plate on your chair and sitting on it.

In Great Britain, it is considered impolite not to have a conversation at the table.

The coran and sunna say that muslims should be violent towards non-muslims, so they don't really perceive any act of aggression towards non-muslims as a crime.

In most parts of Transylvania, Romania, it is considered completely normal for any adult to walk butt naked on the street.

In Uruguay, it is considered that only homosexual men shake hands. Straight males salute by kissing each other's cheeks.

In China, you are not subject to the one-child-policy if you have twins, are living in a rural area, are a foreigner or if the first child is a girl.

And the reason for china fact is that in China a male is legally obligated to support their parents when they get into their elder years. A girl is not legally obligated and actually if the girl never gets married, even if the parents are in their elder years then they still have to financially support her. So if the parents just have a girl then they have no one to support them in their elder years.

Correct me if I am wrong, but wouldn't infinity divided by infinity be infinity?

I learnt that infinity divided by infinity was impossible to calculate, it's an indetermination.

It's not impossible. It just depends on what you deem your infinity to be.

no it wouldn't be.
you cannot perform any arithmetic operations with infinity, because it is not a number. infinity is just an idea, a concept which sometimes proves to be useful.

how this post words it is completely incorrect, there are no different "values" for infinity, there are none at all. infinity never takes a specific value, if it would, it would stop being infinity at that moment.

but there are "different kinds" of infinities. for example the amount of natural numbers is infinite, as is the amount of real numbers. but since between any two natural numbers there are infinitely many real numbers (even between any two real numbers that's the case), you could say that the amount of real numbers is a "bigger" infinity than the amount of real numbers.

this is the actual reason why you cannot divide infinity by infinity. you cannot treat it as a number

It could be zero depending on the infinities in question.

Well I mean, if you divided and infinite amount of numbers by an infinite amount of numbers, wouldn't that make the answer and infinite amount of numbers? Infinity containing itself?

not necessarily.

Take for example the sum of every number between 0 and 1. Are there not an equal amount of numbers between that interval and the interval of 100 and 101?

Which sum is greater?

Now, both may be infinity, but if you divided the second infinity by the first one, you would have infinity or at least a very large quotient. (I have completely forgotten my series equations)

To do the inverse would output a very small number or zero.

In Denmark you have to name your child in compliance to the list of legal names maintained by the Family directorate, there are about ~28000 names to choose from, most of which are restricted to one gender.

Last time the name laws was liberalized, a man tried to change his name to Susie Smelteost (Meltycheese), he was denied that request because Susie is listed as a girls only name.

Wow AND you sited your sources. Well done OP!

For those who want to know more about #4:

One way this is proven is by Limits. Many limits result in various arithmetic expressions involving Zeros and Infinitys. Therefore things like infinity over infinity and anything over zero are deemed "indeterminate values." Thanks to L'Hoptal's rule most of these can be determined, but some times they just end up being infinity or zeros.

tl;dr: math math math math math math math
just thought I'd share, cause we all know that info isn't useful anywhere else lol
