A life changing bit of knowledge that.


I bet you feel more complete now. :)

Ah, explains a lot.

What about the other 50 years? ;)

I don't understand that :(

Anyway, I have learnt far more than anyone else on this thread.

Well you scored very bad on the 'Things I have learnt today' quiz, are you sure about that?

Did I? I don't remember that.

I only seem to retain stuff that I find really, really interesting.

My brain is like a sieve most of the time, unfortunately.

1. You aren't in as much pain as you have been before.

2. Someone Bach's husband died.

3. Ducks do have an echo.

4. Doris is going to see Hair on Saturday evening.

5. Stephen Fry doesn't always tell the truth.

:)

Erm....

From Mythbusters

When examined by an audio expert, it was found that the echo was "swallowed" by the original quack, due to the very similar acoustic structure between the quack and the echo. Because of this, it may be difficult to tell where the quack ends and the echo begins, both having similar waveforms on an oscilloscope and blending together in a way that makes them difficult to distinguish. In the same way, human hearing may not perceive the difference between a duck's quack and its echo

So, to a human, no echo can be heard in certain circumstances.:)

The much missed tmjwat once PM'd me Catherine Bach's address, after I'd shown an unhealthy interest in her.

Just because we can't hear it, doesn't mean it's not there :)

Ok, but that's only 5 things. What about the other 995?

I really don't think anyone wants me to post another 995 things I've learnt :D

Maz was just being silly.

So why did you bother with the 5 then?
