Russia, North Korea, South Korea And Vietnam have a combined military population that is larger then the rest of the worlds combined.

If Russia, North Korea and China combined forces then we would all be fooked.

Vietnam has a larger army than the USA.



america very rarely scraps its old planes and tech, infact most is stored away ready to be used again in future or as cannon fodder in wwIII

who needs a large stand army of inflantry with t-55 tanks and serise II ak-47's when you can rape them with harriers...

Couting reserves is a bit of a joke. The US has nearly 4 times the number of full time active soldiers that Vietnam has. And that's before you count the navy or airforce which US would hammer Vietnam in terms of full time members.

US also has way more soldiers than Russia. Only one that beats US in terms of soldier numbers is China. They have nearly twice what the US has.

Strange Fact:

This thread is now about obscure facts rather than facts that go against the grain....fact.

LOL

Its now there is 24 hour new and newspeak whether there is 24 hours of news worthy news or not, most stories are fillers.

I would love to flick on the 6 one only to hear Sharon say good evening there was no news today, now here is some cartoons to replace this scheduled programme.


Or just had a chat, nothing in particular, I'd say Dobbo has a few decent anecdotes up his sleeve and Sharon could talk about her slutty days when she was in college, who ever's on the sports desk can just ramble off some obscure facts about the GAA, oh and, and, every 7 minutes a horn sounds and they all have to switch seats in a clockwise direction and last to sit down has to do a jaggerbomb and I'm going to stop now...

Larger doesn't mean more powerful.

Assuming that the current rate of production will be sustained indefinitely, it's already dropping off.....population is set for a large decrease in future.
(Also assuming that there will always be Chinese people or even humans)

Against the grain thingy:

You will not explode (or turn inside out) nor will you immediately freeze to death from exposure to the vacuum of space.
The first major potential injury would come from fluid/gas expanding, so you should exhale immediately upon exposure (if you don't you will likely die much sooner).

Water would vaporize when there is no pressure so that would be painful for your mouth and other wet areas but not fatal.

The lack of pressure would also cause nitrogen bubbles in your blood (aka: the bends), probably extremely painful but again not fatal.
Direct exposure to the sun (assuming there is one in the vicinity) would cause instant sunburn.

Due the lack of matter surrounding your body there would be no risk of heat loss until you were long dead from oxygen deprivation so no need to pack an extra sweater if you're planning for the worst on Dec 21st.

According to some website I just googled you would still be totally lucid, awake and have all your higher brain functions for at least 10 seconds after exposure to the vacuum of space, maybe long enough to save yourself (though chances are things are only going to go downhill if you somehow managed to find yourself in this position.)

Apparently your brain and heart will continue to live relatively undamaged for almost two minutes so if some sound aliens happen to swoop in and pump you full of oxygen in an earth-like atmosphere you would actually survive the experience:

" Without intervention in those first ninety seconds, the blood pressure would fall sufficiently that the blood itself would begin to boil, and the heart would stop beating. There are no recorded instances of successful resuscitation beyond that threshold."

Reading the word ''Yawn'' makes you want to yawn, seeing someone else yawn also makes you want to yawn.

They shouldn't though . If you actually read my post, they should not be able to fly, until it was observed that they flip their wings over on the upstroke. That is why they can fly.

There was no mention of whatever it was that you linked to.

Until recently we did not know how they flew. . Until it was observed. As was detailed in my post.


Not knowing precisely how something flies is not the same as saying it shouldn't be able to fly. Only a moron would think like that. If you'd read the link I gave, this stupid myth arose because a scientist, in joking, mentioned that if you applied the same theories of aerodynamic lift from planes to bees, then they wouldn't be able to fly. Facetious, of course, as bees aren't planes and can flap their wings.
