DYK . . . that cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, including 43 known cancer-causing (carcinogenic) compounds and 400 other toxins and that these ingredients not only include nicotine, tar, and carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic, and DDT, but High Fructose Syrup and Sugar, as well. A cigarette is 10 - 20% sugar, a cigar
is 20%.
In the US, the highest rate of smokers, are in Kentucky, Utah the lowest.
The United States is the only major cigarette market in the world in which the percentage of women smoking cigarettes (22%) comes close to the number of men who smoke (35%). Europe has a slightly larger gap (46% of men smoke, 26% of women smoke), while most other regions have few women smokers. The stats: Africa (29% of men smoke, 4% of women smoke); Southeast Asia (44% of men, 4% of women), Western Pacific (60% of men, 8% of women).

DYK...

Without the effect of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, Earth's average temperature would be around 0 degrees Fahrenheit.

John Larroquette was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, not far from the french quarter. Before he was even an actor to begin with, he used to be a musician and played clarinet and saxophone throughout childhood and into high school. He formed a band with a few friends in high school, and discovered acting his senior year. Was also a radio DJ in college as well.

DYK . . that most people have eyelash mites? The harmless, microscopic,
transparent mite is also known as demodex folliculitis. It is a parasite that is found in the hair follicles of our faces. They can be found in the nose, the cheeks, and particularly on the eyelash area. They are usually harmless, (unless you're allergic to them) most people go about their business never noticing that they are there.

Taken from recent issue of GameInformer magazine: Little Known Facts about Video Games


Lara Croft was Originally a Male

Core Design animator Toby Ward originally wanted to design a male treasure hunter, but it was deemed too close to Indiana Jones.

They then designed a female named Laura Cruz from South America and then changed it to Lara Croft, a more UK friendly name.





Tetris was the First Video Game Played in Outer Space

The Game Boy version of Tetris was the first game played in outer space. Russian cosmonaut Aleksandr A. Serebrov played the game while aboard a space station in 1993.

The game was later sold at an auction for $1,220.





Barack Obama Campaigned in 18 Games

During the 2008 presidential election, Barack Obama purchased ad space in 18 video games that ran in 10 states.

The "Vote for Change" billboards were featured in Madden, Skate, Burnout Paradise, and others that targeted the 18-34 demographic.





Other James Bond Models were to be Featured in Goldeneye 007

Rare originally intended to have models based on 007 as portrayed by Sean Connery, Roger Moore and Timothy Dalton for the 1997 video game's multi-player system.

The idea was scrapped prior to release.





The Blocks in Super Mario Bros. are People

A small synopsis found in the manual of Super Mario Bros. for the NES revealed that the Koopas turned all of the land's people into blocks, stones and field horse-hair plants.





Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter Appear in Halo 4

Comedians Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter visited 343 Industries for a spoof skit on an episode of "Conan". The audio made it into Halo 4 in a level called Shutdown.

The player has to stand next to two specific dockworkers to trigger the dialogue.

DYK that one of the GOOGLE employee perks is that new Dads receive six weeks of paid leave, and Moms can take 18 weeks, and employees' stock continues to vest (and they continue to receive bonuses) while they are on leave. Employees, also receive a $500 bonus called "baby bonding bucks" for
diapers, formula, etc.

When the parent returns to work, Google offers free onsite day care.

DYK...Venus rotates clockwise while the other 7 planets rotate counterclockwise. And it's hotter than Mercury...which Mercury can actually go below freezing since it has no atmosphere!

DYK . . that since 2004 it's virtually impossible to steal a Rolls Royce hood
ornament. A simple nudge of the ornament in any direction and the whole thing disappears out of site.Also, the driver can raise or lower it, with a push
of a button.

DYK . . that former US president William McKinley was know for wearing a
red rose in his lapel for luck, and on the occasion he took it off to give to a
little girl, he was instantly shot by an assassin. He died eight days later. This
occurred in 1901.
