Did you know that frequent flyers on transatlantic flights are exposed to the equivalent of 170 chest X-rays a year, putting them at increased risk of cancer, according to the US Federal Aviation Administration.

This is due to Cosmic radiation from the sun gets stronger at higher altitudes because the atmosphere thins out and is less able to offer protection from the rays.

It's quite shocking really, i only heard about this a few days ago. So does anyone have any other interesting facts for this morning?

Well if you put two teaspoons of suger into your coffee, instead of one, it tastes sweeter. But if you put three spoons of suger in, then its three times as sweeter than if you only put one spoon of suger in.

Night.

Actually the coffee rule doesn't work due to the law of diminishing returns, and coffee keeps its bitter taste even if you put 5 teaspoons of sugar in. It's not a constant relationship.

This thread's not as successful as i hoped it'd be. I had another interesting fact to post, but it doesn't look like there's enough interest for me to post. I'll have to with-hold my information now for another night.

While that's true, no-one replied for about 5 minutes. I don't understand what you mean about the comment about rep that goes to rep with itself :confused:

i was thinking about what facts i know.

Fair enough, but others aren't concerned about the comments/reasons why they get rep, they're only concerned with the number. If you get the answer right i'll write a comment.

Shall i give the answer, and the person that can tell me why, may receive rep.

Or can i just completely change the topic and speak about something instead of starting a new thread.
