Just like the title says, offer up a worthless shred or two of info that you know. I'll start:

-The beginning of "Intergalactic," by the Beastie Boys features a robotic sound. It's actually Mike D singing "Intergalactic, Planetary, Planetary, Intergalactic" through a vocoder. If you've never noticed this, que it up and listen... it will stick out like a sore thumb once you hear it.

-The official beginning of the Medieval English language can be traced back to the Battle of Hastings in 1066, when the Normans conquered the Anglo-Saxons. The result was an intermingling of the old French tongue with the Anglo-Saxon one, resulting in what we'd call "Old English." The resulting language eschewed many words from the previous one, making them swear words; the same ones we don't use in polite company today.

-Polar Bears have black skin.

CT scans expose you to as much radiation as 200 x-rays. ( I googled to verify the number, but I knew it was a ton)

An ER visit will most likely not give you a definitive answer, but we will make sure you aren't dying and will then tell you to follow up with your primary doctor in 2-3 days, all for a hefty price tag. Start with Motrin and Tylenol

Oxygen is not flammable.
The square root of 69 is "ate something".
A bad player at 3rd base does not screw everybody at the blackjack table.
The type of wood does not affect the tone of an electric guitar.

Gilligan’s first name was Willy, and the Skipper’s real name was Jonas Grimby.

I wonder what world changing information got displaced in my mind to make room for that uselessness?

Jimi Hendrix was left handed. He would restring right-handed guitars to correspond with left hand play.

A contrabassoon can play down to 40 Hz.
40 Hz sound wave is about 28 feet long.

A violin can play up to 4000 Hz.
4000 Hz sound wave is about .28 feet long.

When I was in high school I had a Jimi Hendrix poster in my bedroom. One time my Gramma came to visit and I was showing her my room. She looked at that poster and the first thing she said was,

"That guy's a southpaw but he's playing a right hand guitar"

When you get in a rental car and don't know which side the gas tank filler is on, look at the gas gauge in the dash and it will have an arrow pointing to the side of the car that has the gas filler receptacle. It's included on all cars and but most people don't know it's there.

When I was little I would play in this really old business, union gospel press. A huge old printing building complex. Because it was so huge and fortified the mafia used it for meetings. The place had huge iron gates and an escape tunnel that went a half mile and exited in a church. I got to know the caretaker and one day while walking about he said. Have some respect kid.... I looked over at him and with a confused look shrugged huh?
You are standing on Jimmy Hoffa, I looked down and next to a garage door was a patch of different concrete about six by three feet.
Many decades later I revisited the place, now turned into expensive condos, I asked for a tour as a perspective buyer, sure enough that odd patch of concrete is still there.....

When driving a new vehicle and don’t know what side to fill up gas on, look at the dash and what side the arrow on the fuel gauge is on will tell you what side the fuel door is on the vehicle. Edit..... I totally missed the post above already. (case of the mondays)

That must be fairly well known since that's the 2nd time it's been mentioned in this thread.

Married Amish men must grow a beard, but without a mustache. The mustache is prohibited because it is a feature related to the military.

They make bikinis out of seashells, and if you see a girl wearing a seashell bikini and you pick her up and hold her to your ear....... you can hear her scream.

Learned that from an old redneck Ron

The Sun is approximately 93 million miles away, it takes the "rays" approximately 8.3 minutes to get to the Earth.
Alpha Centauri is our closest solar system at 4.37 light years away. So multiply each second in a year by 186,282 miles and you'll have the distance to our nearest celestial "brother".

Space is big... really really really big.

... oh almost forgot ... "space" never ends.

Explain that to a 5yr old.
