You've all been in this situation: You're lying there, just keeping to yourself, and she says "Tell me something interesting".

Now, this is a lot of pressure.

When faced with this situation, I usually steal from the movie Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys, and say something like this: "So there's this fish that lives really deep under the ocean, right? I think it's called the Anglerfish or something. Anyway, the female is way bigger than the male, because, you see, the male is a parasite, okay? So after the male mates with the female, he latches onto her back, and stays there. Eventually, he grows into her back and their bloodstreams merge, so they kind of turn into one organism." It usually works out pretty well because that's totally interesting, but, like, it's only one thing and if I ever get someone who is exceptionally curious or something I'm not going to be able to top that. So, fellow INTLers, that's where you come in.

Tell me something interesting.

Something Interesting about the Windows Registry.

The Microsoft Windows Registry Editor is able to view five predefined and reserved keys in the registry. They are HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, HKEY_USERS, HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG, HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, HKEY_CURRENT_USER. The HKEY_CURRENT_USER is a subkey of HKEY_USERS. It is the registry key used by a user, who is currently logging on to the system.

When you log on Windows NT/2000 locally, you can edit your personal registries in HKEY_USERS or HKEY_CURRENT_USER using the Registry Editor. At the same time, HKEY_CURRENT_USER can be accessed and modified remotely. In other words, you can edit your personal registries (HKEY_CURRENT_USER) using your account and password from a remote computer, given that you are also logging on the target computer locally.

If your account and password are stolen, it becomes a very serious security problem. Someone who knows your account and password can edit your personal registries.

I usually just make up a story on the spot, about whatever it is that comes to mind first.

if you can't make up stories, ask questions. asking questions is always good for conversations, because you can go from what the other person answers. make sure it isnt a stupid quesion though

The name of the penninsula of Yucitan came out of a mistake. When Cortez asked a local man (in spanish) what the native called the area, the native responded "Yu ki tan" which means "I dont understand" in the native tongue. Cortez heard this, and decided to call the area Yucitan.

I usually respond to that question with something like "I'm not interesting, please be quiet and go to sleep."

I'm drowning in women, yes.
That's about when I met nelly, she was the village belle.

Then along came a city slicker, all finely dressed and gay.

So is that one.

Guys, the problem with these facts you're giving me is that they're, with the exception of a couple, way way too short. It has to be more conversational, kind of like a story.

This is pretty good.

And Kapn Xaos, the problem with yours is that it requires at the very least the ability to copy and paste text into the conversation, which for most people isn't enough. Maybe you and your wife have a unique relationship, though, so good luck with that.

Interesting fact:

The Spanish General, Galvez (for whom Galveston is named) was more than a little off. According to my history teacher, he ordered a number of monkeys to be brought from South America (I think it was 100 or something close to that number). Why did he want the monkeys? To fight the Indians living in New Mexico.

Iceland is one of the only nations in the world to still use the patronymic system. Children are given a last name which consists of their father's full given name followed by "son". e.g. if Svenburt had a son he called Ralf, he would be named Ralf Svenburtson.

Stormraider, am I correct in assuming that Ralf Svenburtson's son's surname would be "Ralfson?" Or am I doing it wrong? Cool factoid nonetheless.

The Onbashira festival occurs in Suwa City, Japan (near Nagano) every six years. The festival celebrates the building anew of the shrine. One of the rituals of the festivals involves cutting down four large trees, which are to be the chief suport beams of the new shrine. Several men then ride on top of the logs as they are pushed down a steep hill. It is this ritual that makes it one of the most dangerous festivals in the world.

The Earl of Orkney of Scotland in the late 1390s made a voyage to Nova Scotia and landed at what is now considered modern day Pictou County. It is believed he might be the inspiration for the Mi Kmaq Natives legend of Gloosecap, a god who came to Nova Scotia, and stayed for a short period of time, teaching the natives better living and hunting techniques.
Research has proven the Natives diet and hunting skills virtually change in several quick weeks around 1398, develope skills for water transport and fishing skills that are not appearant before this time,encouraging the theory someone educated the natives at a quick pace. The Earl just like the God Gloosecap, had written in his log, he promised to come back to Nova Scotia and visit the natives again,. he was later killed in a battle in Scotland.
It was Believed the Earl found Nova Scotia from old viking maps, the vikings having also maped out Cape Breton, PEI, Mainland NS.
