Things I have learned today

Staying at my buddy Rick's house tonight. I'm chatting with another buddy on the facebook and he wants me to call him. He sends me his phone number. I want to write it down. I can't find a pen. The computer desk is littered with bullets though.

What I learned:
In a pinch, a .22 caliber long rifle bullet can be used as a writing utensil.

What did you guys learn today?

Interesting, I had a similar experience, different set of circumstances though and involved using a lipstick to take down a number. (Before any one gets excited, it was a mate's number and my wife's lipstick!).

The key difference here though is that I assume the bullet was still in perfect working order after it had been used as a writing instrument. On the other hand I rendered the lipstick completely useless (plus I was writing on a brick - but it's too long a story to go into that - and the memory is kind of fuzzy anyway...)

Barry.
I learned that by quoting Barry completely out of context, this has the makings of being one of the cooler stories on this forum. That story would then join the ranks of the one where one idiot here thought it wise to Taser himself. Or countless Pete stories.

Anyways... tell the brick lipstick story !

To add to Pete's epiphany, using hollow points makes you look like a caligrapher.

Righto!

Like buckshot makes you a pointillist, and with dum dums one may mimic a mean impressionist.

No matter which ballistic artistry comes up next, as long as it stays miles away from my Ferrari it's fine with me...

Oddly enough, today I learned about a few interesting (unrelated) things:

1) Some details of how some historians/archaeologists suggest the structures on Machu Picchu may have been made;

2) The prewar origins of the Monaco GP;

3) Some things I didn't know before about how holidays are celebrated in Hungary, particularly Christmas;

4) Traditional week-long Moroccan wedding rituals.


Anyone else?

My Chinese girlfriend learned that when you buy a cheap pair of blue suede shoes it turns your feet blue. She discovered this on arriving at the security checkpoint in Chicago where you have to remove your shoes to go through security checkpoint. Her feet were very blue.

The next day she learned that when you try to clean your feet after wearing cheap blue suede shoes it turns your hands blue.

I expect her to be fully transformed into a Smurf in about a week.

Yeah, probably nothing you are ever going to use in your life. Hope you got an "A" though!
