king_hellfire Posted on 20/11/2008 23:55
The Most Interesting Fact you know..

Myth #1: Quicksand sucks you down.

Contrary to this popular belief, quicksand does not "...suck you down" but rather, anyone who steps into it will sink just as they would in any other liquid. Since it is very thick, there may be a great deal of suction and resistance if the person is wearing boots or flat-soled shoes, which may account for this myth. However, unless the person is carrying a very heavy load (like a full backpack) that makes them less bouyant, he or she will only sink to their chest or sholders. Since quicksand and thin mud are more dense than water, it is easier to float, and ALMOST impossible to sink completely under!

'That's just it, blot. How do they know how many grains of sand there are on the planet? I've got 2 bags in the shed and I'm sure I'd have spotted someone sneaking in with a calculator.'



Hope this helps...



"So how many grains of sand are there in the world? You could start
off by trying to guess how many grains of sand there are in a spoon of
sand. Use a magnifying glass to count how many grains fit in a small
section. Then, count how many of those sections fit in your spoon.
Multiply the two numbers together to get an estimate.
"Using this same principle, plus some additional information,
mathematicians at the University of Hawaii tried to guess how many
grains of sand are on the world's beaches. They came up with
7,500,000,000,000,000,000, or seven quintillion five quadrillion
grains of sand."
How many grains of sand are in the world?
http://www.miamisci.org/tripod/whysand.html

The calculation is detailed here:
http://www.hawaii.edu/suremath/jsand.html

That number is 7.5 x 10^18 or 7.5 billion billion.

How many stars, galaxies, clusters, QSO's etc. in the Universe?
http://www.faqs.org/faqs/astronomy/faq/part8/section-3.html
"To get the total stellar population in the Milky Way [that is, in our
galaxy alone], we must take the number of luminous stars that we can
see at large distances and assume that we know how many fainter stars
go along with them. Recent numbers give about 400,000,000,000 (400
billion) stars, but a 50% error either way is quite plausible."

So in our galaxy alone, there might be between 2 x 10^11 and 6 x 10^11 stars

How many galaxies in the Universe?
http://www.faqs.org/faqs/astronomy/faq/part8/section-4.html
"the Hubble telescope is capable of detecting about 80 billion
galaxies (although not all of these within the foreseeable future!).
In fact, there must be many more than this, even within the observable
Universe, since the most
common kind of galaxy in our own neighborhood is the faint dwarfs
which are difficult enough to see nearby, much less at large
cosmological distances. For example, in our own local group, there are
3 or 4 giant galaxies which would be detectable at a billion
light-years or more (Andromeda, the Milky Way, the Pinwheel in
Triangulum, and maybe the Large Magellanic Cloud). However, there are
at least another 20 faint members, which would be difficult to find at
100 million light-years, much less the billions of light years to
which the brightest galaxies can be seen."

So the lower end estimate for the number of galaxies is 8 x 10^10

If we accept even the lower end of these Hubble figures, and if our
Milky Way has a typical number of stars in it, that puts the number of
stars in the universe to be at least
(2 x 10^11) x (8 x 10^10) = 16 x 10^ 21

So if we round the number of sand grains to, say, 10^20
and round the number of stars to, say 10^22
then there are at least 100 stars in the universe for every grain of sand on earth.

As you say, that's a *LOT*

These are gospel truth i konw cos a bloke down the pub told me.
When being taken off to be hung convicts were offered a pint of strong ale. To take this pint they had to get off the wagon. Non drinkers remaned "on the wagon". this beer was pretty strong so in the afterlife the hung were said to be "hung over". To help the convicted to die more quickly family were allowed to pll one leg friends were allowed to "pull the other one" I don't know why it had on bells on though.
Never doubt pub wisdom
