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

    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.

    not quite under sixty, but you're right it's still amazing.

    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
