I have come across a list of many interesting things during my life online. Rather than keeping them all to myself I am sharing them here.

Making characters for games is easy, coming up with a name is not so easy. When all is lost and the usual names you like don't work, go translate and see what you come up with.

Vargen - Wolf.

stygga vargen - bad wolf.

 

Also, some notes on various things I've learned in passing.

SSA = formal sikh greeting.

I am a BIG fan of Doctor Who, here are some of the best quotes from the show.

11th Doctor [Matt Smith]

we're all stories in the end. Just make it a good one. A daft old man who stole a magic box and ran away. You'll dream about that box. it'll never leave you. Big and little at the same time. Brand new and ancient. And the bluest blue ever. The Doctor and Amy pond.

9th Doctor [Christopher Eccelston]

Do you now like I was sayin' about the Earth revolving? It's like when you're a kid. The first time they tell you that the Earth's turning and you just can't quite believe it cause everything looks like it's standing still. [looks at Rose] I can feel it. [takes Rose's hand] The turn of the Earth. The ground beneath our feet is spinning at 1,000 miles an hour, and the entire planet is hurtling 'round the Sun at 67,000 miles an hour and I can feel it. We're falling through space, you and me, clinging to the skin of this tiny little world, and if we let go... [let's go of Rose's hand] That's who I am.

Some of the random facts you find on Facebook, Email circulars and other places. Not sure how true they are but that's what the internet is best for.

  • A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes. (O.M.G.!!!)
  • A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death. (Creepy. I'm still not over the pig.)
  • The male praying mantis cannot copulate
  •  while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off. (Honey, I'm home . What the...?)
  • The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping the length of a football field. (30 minutes. Lucky pig! Can you imagine?)
  • The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds. (What could be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?)
  • Some lions mate over 50 times a day. (I still can't believe that pig ...quality over quantity.)
  • Butterflies taste with their feet. (Something I always wanted to know.)
  • Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump. (Okay, so that would be a good thing.)
  • A cat's urine glows under a black light. (I wonder how much the government paid to figure that out.)
  • An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain. (I know some people like that.)
  • Starfish have no brains. (I know some people like that, too.)
  • Polar bears are left-handed. (Talk about a southpaw.)
  • Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure. (What about that pig? Do the dolphins know about the pig?)
  • Now that you've smiled at least once, it's your turn to spread these crazy facts. (and God love that pig)

Various snippets and sayings that sounds rather good. Not a place for causing argument but they do seem to make a point or are just funny.
