    1 in every 12'000 people has a unique factor within their bloodstream which gets named after them. In turn their descendants will ALL have that factor within their blood stream.

    Prime example is the rhesus factor.

    Does that factor in the property owned by the Crown? I'm guessing not...

    that factors in all net worth, her physical assets that she owns...if you factor in the crown, basically she owns the net worth of all the commonwealth countries, which in theory she could not sell and gain money, whereas the other head of states have simply got better assets than her (EG Oil, Natural Gas etc).

    Due to the fact that I have had a rediculous workload and hectic home life, i have missed this for a few days

    Fact #31: The first couple to be shown in bed together on prime time TV were Fred and Wilma Flintstone.
    Fact #32: Human beings are born with only two inbuilt fears: the fear of loud noises and the fear of falling. All other fears are abnormal and have to be learned
    Fact #33: Earth has 2 moons, one being called the moon, the other being called Cruithne which is 3 miles across and orbits every 770 years
    Fact #34: The inventor of the first helecopter was not italian as "common knowledge" suggests, but he was in fact chinese and it was invented in 440AD in China, and was called a bamboo dragonfly.

    Not really true. 3753 Cruithne is a 'quasi satellite' as its orbit is not standard, as its orbit is partly around Earth, and partly around the sun. In the same vein, there are potentially 3 other known quasi-satellites of Earth, all with numbers as names.

    Fact #35: America has the highest ratio of people in prison compared to any other country. This is because of their 3 strikes system. No matter what your first 2 prison sentences , the 3rd one, no matter how trivial, is an automatic life sentence.

    you sure?

    Wikipedia (granted, not the most reliable source) lists only the following states:

    The following states have enacted three strike laws:

    * In 1974: Texas[3]
    * In 1993: Washington
    * In 1994: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Indiana, Kansas, Nevada, North Dakota
    * In 1995: Arkansas, Georgia, Maryland, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, Wisconsin
    * In 1996: Florida, Tennessee, Virginia

    and also..
    The exact application of the three strikes laws varies considerably from state to state. Some states require all three felony convictions to be for violent crimes in order for the mandatory sentence to be pronounced, while others — most notably California — mandate the enhanced sentence for any third felony conviction so long as the first two felonies were deemed to be either "violent" or "serious," or both
