Ooh! Ooh!

In the early 1900's London, (when they rode around in carriages and stuff) the average speed traveled was about 10 km/h... and today (with all our technology) the average speed remains the same! :)

Pablo Picasso's full name:

Pablo Diego José Santiago Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno Crispín Crispiniano de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz Blasco y Picasso is his full name ... but it's too long to use so it's also Pablo Ruiz Picasso

not sure if its true, but read it on a few websites!

James Bond did originally have blonde hair and blue eyes.
Also in Casino Royale, the first few scenes are in black and white, and only after he kills that first guy after chasing him for 10 minutes does the movie become colour. Because that signified his first kill.

Or maybe i'm lying

Most people have an IQ in the 90 - 109 range. You're considered a genius if your IQ is 132 or above. Chris Langan has an IQ of 195, the highest known IQ in the US. He started talking at 6 months and by age 4 could read and comprehend books. His IQ puts him in the same class as Sir Isaac Newton and Michelangelo. He's in his mid-forties, and he works as a part-time bouncer at a bar and lives in a one-room house on $6,000 a year.

The longest word in the English language that has only one vowel is "strengths" - nine letters.
