Did you know that.....?

Recommended Posts

This game is called "Did you know that...?"

To play, you simply post a trivial or interesting fact followed by "*DING!* Now you know!". The fact MUST BE TRUE! Else, it isn't really a fact.

The catch? There must be some kind of relation to the previous fact.

Who knows, you just might learn something. :P

Here is an example:

A: "Did you know that the N64 used RAMBUS RAM? *DING!* Now you know!"

B can follow with a fact pertaining to the N64, RAMBUS, or RAM in general:

B: "Did you know that Ford created an N64 edition of the Mercury Villager? *DING!* Now you know!"

So, here we go!

Did you know that the Kansai Airport in Japan is built on a man-made island?

(remember, your fact has to have a connection to mine, IE about air travel, Japan, islands...)

Did you know that there were literally tens of The One Ring(s) made for the film of Lord of the Rings? Most of them were lost during the scene where Frodo falls backwards and rolls down a snowy slope on a mountain, sinking into the snow, therefore being impossible to find. *DING!* Now you know! *buys ticket to New Zealand*
