Most of the music from Metallica's debut LP, Kill 'Em All, was written by Dave Mustaine. Metallica kicked him out of the band while recording due to him being a drunken asshole, and a rivalry was born. This is also why the song "The Four Horsemen" by Metallica sounds almost identical to "Mechanix" by Megadeth, which Mustaine formed soon after.

Teutonic Thrash is superior to Bay Area Thrash which sounds rather feeble in comparison and the Big 4 are all mediocre at best with the occasional exception of Slayer.

It's been posted in this thread so that makes it 100% objective fact as opposed to the dickish opinion of an elitist. :p

- Semen becomes sticky and cohesive in water. This is because the anticoagulant in semen is easily washed away.

- Cis, non-intersex males have underdeveloped, vestigial uteruses. They have them for the same reason they have nipples.

- Rosa Parks was a trained, professional civil rights activist. Her historic act was staged to repeat the exact same series of events which happened to another black woman, who was a pregnant teenager.

- If a pair of twins marry another pair of twins, their children will be genetically siblings rather than cousins.

- One egg has enough protein to fulfill your entire daily requirement.

Some tribes in New Guinea used to believe that in order to become a man you must ingest semen daily. The same tribes also believe that heterosexual sex can shorten a man's life.

Due to osmotic effects, sugar is an excellent substance to stop bleeding in a pinch.

Brain matter is mostly just fat, which provides support and insulates the sensitive ionic tubules.

There are two genetic deformities that are shared by 100% of the human population. One of them is the reason that humans can't produce ascorbic acid.

There is only one unique Y chromosone, but there are many of the others, and many unique lines of mitochondrial DNA.

The first apparatus for artificial respiration consisted of nothing more than a table that rocked back and forth.
 
- Armadillos are one of the few non human animals capable of contracting leprosy.

- The bubonic plague is still endemic in parts of New Mexico among prairie dogs populations.

- The plastic tips at the end of shoelaces are called "aglets".

- and their true purpose is sinister.

Technically - Dave Mustaine only has writing credits on four songs from Kill 'Em All (The Four Horsemen, Jump in the Fire, Phantom Lord, and Metal Militia). Less than half.

That said, he also has writing credits on two songs from Ride The Lightning (-the title track- and The Call of Ktulu).

Dave Mustaine also claims some partial writing credits to "Leper Messiah" (off of "Master of Puppets"), but Metallica argues / refutes this one, unlike the others where they gave him credit.

On top of "Mechanix" (Megadeth) sounding like "The Four Horsemen" (Metallica) - the first half of "When" (Megadeth - album: The World Needs A Hero) uses the same riffs from "The Call of Ktulu" (Metallica - album: Ride the Lightning) . . . which he has writing credits on.

The second half sounds like "Am I Evil?" (Diamond Head) . . . supposedly as an homage or respect or tribute to the band / Brian Tatler. ((Or some rubbish.))

- The WW2 ship's cat known as "Unsinkable Sam" survived his ship being sunk from underneath him no less than three times, having survived the sinking of the German battleship Bismark, the Royal Navy destroyer HMS Cossack, and the Royal Navy aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal.
- The Cold War "Project Orion" proposed ground-launched spaceships that weighed over 2,000 tons to be launched by exploding nuclear bombs behind the ship and riding the resulting shockwaves. Test models using plastic explosives proved that "ol' boom-boom' would work in theory, but the project was cancelled as a result of nuclear test ban treaties.
- The (thankfully) extinct Haast's Eagle had a wingspan of around ten feet and was big enough to attack nine-feet tall flightless Moas, and was the only example of a bird being the apex predator of an ecosystem. In fact, most flightless birds in New Zealand evolved camouflaged plumage in order to avoid it.
- The Cray X-MP supercomputer of the 1980s (that was so expensive at the time only major US scientific laboratories could afford it) has less overall processing power than a modern-day iPad.
- The word for "beer" in Japanese is biru. Which is useful.

A fuller is a job back in the middle ages where sheep are sheared, their wool carded, spun and then woven – basically, cleanse and thicken woollen cloth


This wasn’t so bad except they needed alkaline to cleanse the wool and it was expensive, so they turned to stale urine instead – gallons of urine taken from farms and private houses, only for the poor wool cleaner to trod through urine for over 7 hours a day, up to their knees in stale human urine

It can also be used in the production of Potassium Nitrate.

In 1567, the man said to have the longest beard in the world died after he tripped over his beard running away from a fire.

A kangaroo has 3 vaginas

A ducks "quack" doesn't echo.

Humpty Dumpty wasn't an egg at all, it was a nickname given to a cannon which fell from a wall during battle, all the soldiers in the area who tried couldn't lift it back into place due to it's immense weight

You can easily pass (or intentionally fail) key questions on a polygraph just by clenching your butthole. Tensing your pelvic floor can fluctuate your blood pressure drastically, creating spikes and false positives all over your test, therefore making the data inaccurate and useless. Given that not-so-useless-fact, polygraph tests can't even be used in a US court of law. Fooling a suspect into thinking there are, however, is perfectly legal and the sole reason we still use them. Guilty fuckers be confessing needlessly left and right still!

-Racecar backwards is Racecar

-Male ducks are avid rapists. They rape other ducks, chickens, and pretty sure any other bird or small animal they can get to

-Duck penis is corkscrew shaped when erect

-Duck vaginas are actually mazes and they can close/open flaps to direct the duck's semen either into her womb or into a dead-end pocket
where it sits and dies. They use this to not allow their rapist's semen to fertilize her and allow her actual mate to fertilize her.

-The Rape-X condom is scary. Has backwards spikes that hook the male when he pulls out/thrusts. Females wear it like a tampon. I think originated to combat the high rape cases in poor areas of africa. It has to be cut off at the hospital using an electric saw (wouldn't want that near my dick) and once it's removed, they man is arrested for rape (obviously).

-Before the FDA, china used to sell a facial skin care product that was made mostly with male cum. Called 'Pearl Cream' and when the FDA was made and examined it, it was banned. Well male cum IS good for your face and skin, ladies.

-Male cum acts as an astringent, anti-bacterial agent and helps the skin.

-WW2 soldiers would use their urine to clean the barrels of their rifles while out on the field.

-The bayonet of the Mosin-Nagant rifle is actually a flathead screwdriver and can be used to assemble/reassemble the rifle since all the screws need a flathead.

So are pigs'. The tails aren't the only things that're screwy.

Also:

- 4 percent of all people have outtie belly buttons.

- Some turtle species can breath through their butts (cloacal respiration).

- Norway knighted a penguin once. His name is Sir Nils Olav.

- A cat named Tama was a railroad station master in Japan until her death about a week ago. And she adorable.

Before the invention of gas masks, soldiers in World War I avoided the deadly effects of chlorine gas by pissing on a handkerchief and holding it over their mouth and nose. The gas reacted with the piss and became harmless.

Its known to date that the worlds oldest non rhythmic instrument was the flute.
The flute was made out of part of the wing from a vulture and was surprisingly pentatonic.
After that point whistles were created which would soon evolve into the earliest form of an ocarina.
Another thing to note is that xylophones made from reindeer bones were also found.

Perfume was first used in 2nd millenium BCE. And pretty much everyone did not wipe their butts a long time ago, not only the French; In fact, Toilet Paper was invented in 1857 by Joseph Gayetty.
