Today's UBI (Useless Bit of Information)

[quote=“Reverend Danite, post:35, topic:1445”]I’ve gone until now without knowing who he was. Could hear the choirmistress laughing and popped my head around the door - just as another episode of Friends :stuck_out_tongue: started!
Am I the only person who has never seen an episode?[/quote]
I can assure you that you are not the only one.

Ahh good. I only had to experience a few seconds yesterday to have my prejudges confirmed.

I used to like Barney Miller.

From swallowing dice or by being a giraffe without water? :wink:

I never thought you were in trouble, didnt expect anyone here to be fans. I liked the show in the first few series… Matt Le Blanc isn’t a very inspiring actor though.

Heh heh! Nowadays, you would, indeed.
But, that leads me to another bit of useless information.

Standard, modern Dice are much bigger in size than they were in the 18th and 19th century (or even the 1940’s and the 1950’s).
The size of dice increased for several reasons a few of which are as follows:
(1) The interest of Fair Play: larger dice are harder to “palm and switch” at the table.
(2) The Visual: Casino Craps tables have grown larger and larger over the years thus making it harder to see the spots of smaller dice compared to those on the larger.
(3) The Legal: in some places the Law required dice to be of a certain size to deter swallowing by illegal users.

Even if Dice were smaller back in the olden days…I still don’t think I would have wanted the job of swallowing them!
Many of them were made of bone and ivory way back then…and I don’t think such materials would be prone to digesting well!

I love this thread! ;D

when on holiday a pesky seagull shit on my head! swine bird! >:(

Herring gull? Blackheaded? We need to know!

God save thee, ancient Man With A Name,
From the fiends that plague thee thus!
Why look’st thou so?’
“With my crossbow I shot the Albatross.”


The little birds are pointy pointy,
On my head, annointy nointy.
(Steve Martin)

Luckily cows can’t fly …

Well, you’ll have good luck now. Like my avatar?
