As people here work in various jobs / professions they might know things from work or study no one here knows yet. this is what this topic is about.

what do you know that we have never heard of?

Eg: you don't need to be great at maths to be an architect

this is obvious to me but everyone says to me "i wanted to be an architect but i was bad at math,i can barely add"

The RIAI state that English and Maths are required Leaving Cert subjects as geometry, trigonometry and calculus are involved in the courses, so some decent grasp of Maths is required. Of course, the definition of 'good at' is wide open.

Cattle & sheep are not native to Ireland.

Wolves & bears are (or were, I don't think there are that many left hanging around these days. Except in Leitrim).

Lillo Brancato, the guy who played De Niro's son in A Bronx Tale (after they discovered him by trawling New York for someone who looked like De Niro) was charged with second-degree murder after a cop was killed in a shoot-out right after he came across Brancato and another man (his girlfriend's father) attempting to break into a house to get drugs. He was found not guilty but was still sentenced to ten years for the burglary and was released on NYE 2013.

Now, bet you didn't know that and you wondering why his career hadn't taken off.

While around 10% of Irish people have red hair (ginger) 46% of Irish people carry the red hair genes.
If both parents carry red hair genes, their offspring have a 25% of having red hair.

Ireland is a metric country since the 1970's. Some people don't seem to realise.



The USA is also a Metric country, their armed forces use Metric.
