Both of my parents drive Toyota Corollas. My mom has a 2015 one with leather seats and a sunroof and my father has a 2017 one with lane-keep assist (which he REALLY needs)

No SR-71 Blackbird was ever shot down. The SR-71 was a Cold War reconnaissance aircraft and the fastest plane ever built. With a top speed of over mach 3, if the soviets shot a missile at it, its defense would be it could simply out run the missile. However, of the 32 planes built, 11 were destroyed by non-combat means (aka something went wrong and they crashed during test flights). The Blackbirds also have a picture of an anthro skunk painted on their vertical stabilizers.

Eevee is the only Pokemon that becomes a completely different type upon evolution into its next form. Previously, the same was for Azurill who was a Normal-type evolving into the Water-type Marrill. It is no longer true because both Azurill and Marrill have secondary Fairy-typing.

The Industrial National Bank Building in Providence, Rhode Island is called the "Superman Building" because it looks like the "Daily Planet" building from Superman.

in the .Hack games a databug's HP is written in hexadecimal using "01*2#34<5>67%89:" instead of "0123456789ABCDEF" and only a fraction of the damage dealt is actually counted. when it hits 0 they'll protect break and it will roll over to it's max, making them functionally invincible. The health bar on the other hand kinda just does whatever it wants regardless of what the numbers say and will never drop below 50%.

if you know this you can actually read their HP and get a solid idea of how close you are to breaking them.
this does not apply to phases, for some reason they have their own logic to when they break...

shouldn't that be 'better known as Q'? he got the stargate character because of startrek, and discord's personality clearly pays homage to Q's crazier moments.

Also Q is a reoccurring character on DS9 & Voyager, not just TNG, and is a major character in Startrek Borg.

I said he was "also known as" and not "better known as" because those are the roles that people know him the best in. I didn't say "better known as" because I wanted to give equal weight to all of his roles. And the statement is still correct because he was also known as all of those characters.

The German word for "glove" is "Handschuh" which translates literally as "hand-shoe".

"Take What You Want", a song by Post Malone featuring Ozzy Osborne and Travis Scott peaked at number 8 on the "Billboard Hot 100" and became Osbourne's first Billboard Hot 100 top 10 in over 30 years, making it the longest gap between top 10 appearances.

pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis has the word volcano in it, with one of the ways to getting it is consuming volcanic ash. Also, the beginning almost makes the word pneumonia, which pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis has some similar symptoms to.

On November 14 of 1946, it was reported that there was a shortage of milk bottles in Asbury Park, New Jersey.

It seems that 85% of the bottles distributed by milkmen were never returned. The bottles were typically either discarded or repurposed.

Unfortunately, local dairies were unable to get new bottles due to a glass shortage. Dairyman William Thurman said that he ordered new bottles 6 months prior, but would not receive them for another 8 to 10 months. Paper milk cartons were not an option either, since it was also a shortage of paper at a time.

Phil Smith, of the Red Bank Dairy, stated, “It’s always the same few who return bottles, meticulously. The same many who don’t.”

F. J. Schapper of Sheffield Farms, said, “It’s obvious women are ashamed to return dirty milk bottles. We’ll take ‘em clean or dirty. We’ll take ‘em from under the foundation or fish ‘em out of the drink. We get ‘em back from the trash men and haul ‘em from the dumps.”

in the original movie poster for 007: Goldeneye (the version that had bond holding his PPK up, instead of aiming at the camera) the suppressor/silencer is installed incorrectly, it's a few degrees out of alignment with the slide and barrel.

People with higher incomes generally prefer their toilet paper to come over the roll, while those with lower incomes prefer it to go under.

Cher's biggest hit in the US was the song "Dark Lady" in 1974 before she topped the charts in 1999 with the single "Believe" which also was number 1 on the Billboard Year End Charts of 1999. "Dark Lady" and "Believe: both were number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 but "Believe" was the bigger hit worldwide.

Mountain lions can hybridize with ocelots.
Though if they found one they'd probably eat it instead...

Really! That... actually explains something. I'd heard the word before in the title to a song on one of Andrew Hushult's soundtracks but I didn't know what it meant.

Laws pertaining to birth aboard aircraft and ships mean it is possible for a person born on a British ship, anchored in a United States port, with a Chinese father and Turkish mother, to have quadruple nationality.
