Terminator - I’ll be baaaack!

10 Simple Facts I have learned during the last weekend

(P.S. I had ’11 Simple Facts’ but I thought rounding will be better)

  1. Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people do (this is nice)
  2. My Google trends experiment failed miserably (pritney spears scrum’ doesn’t count ;-)
  3. The electric chair was invented by a dentist (I knew it)
  4. 7 out of 10 IT projects “fail” in some respect (3 out of 10 is enough?)
  5. I run 2 km in 10 minutes (*2 world record)
  6. Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia is the fear of long words (Ironic?)
  7. All of the clocks in the movie “Pulp Fiction” are stuck on 4:20 (…)
  8. In a study of 200,000 ostriches, over a period of 80 years, no one reported a single case where an ostrich buried its head in the sand…
  9. I tried to contribute to wikipedia during the weekend and my contributions were removed automatically by the Wikipedia bot (/admins) due to spam, self promotion and notability violations??? (a.k.a. ‘criteria for speedy deletion’)
  10. In Chinese the words for crisis and opportunity are the same (Wikipedia, “I’ll be baaaack!”)

    C’mon, give us the 11th. Do you suffer entekatophobia?

    There is actually a greek blog that posts lists of eleven items. (http://enteka.blogspot.com). You can steal the idea! You didn’t hear it from us.
