    1/9 = .11111111111111111111 to infinity
    2/9 = .22222222222222222222
    8/9 = .88888888888888888888
    9/9 = 1

    Where does the .000000000000000000000000001 go?

    Re: What is a real life fact that blows your mind?

    I find it crazy that we celebrate some very dark holidays.
    Labor day was created as a bandaid to cover up multiple massacres of American workers. Columbus Day is named after a brutal tyrant whose history is largely false.
    Thanksgiving is a sham celebration of pilgrims and Native Americans coming together.

    I read this and found it to be an eye opener.

    That guys are still expected to wear an uncomfortable, colored piece of cloth around their neck as a sign of professionalism. The tie lobby must be extremely powerful.

    We went from that field in Kittyhawk to planting the Stars and Stripes on the moon in under sixty years. I find that amazing.

    It'll sound silly, but the interaction between people and dogs. It's amazed me since I was a little kid that two species can coexist so well together.

    When we look at the night sky were looking back into the past. A star that is 25 million light years away, we're seeing what that star looked like 25 years ago
