Default Wierdest trivia ever

Aright...so here goes. Im looking for odd, funny, or wierd trivia....but it's gotta be true. The good ones make it into the xbox 360 trivia game I'm writing. =)

Pretty much any topic is cool. I've found some wierd ones so far...the longest recorded flight of a chicken is 13 seconds.

This is all stinged from a 'Ripley's Believe it or Not!' book:
  • A 2,100-year-old melon was unearthed in Japan with all the flesh still inside.
  • a baby was born 08:08 AM, on the eighth of August (the eighth month) weighing 8 pounds, after her mother was in labour for 8 hours. The midwife of the child had delivered 8 babies that day. - seems like Khorne really favoured THAT child
  • On similar lines, a mother's seventh baby was born in the seventh hour of 07/07/07 in hospital delivery room number 7. - Nurgle for that one
  • The planet is struck by more than 100 lightning bolts each second, with about 1,800 thunderstorms taking place at any given moment.
  • A 1,050 lb (half a tonne) wild hog measuring 9 ft was killed by an 11-year-old Alabaman boy with a pistol. The boar was then made into 2,800 sausages.
  • A Swiss Army Knife has been produced with no less than 85 different tools, weighing 2 lb & measuring 9 inches.

So wait, are you writing a trivia game for the Xbox 360? How'd that work, like Trivial Pursuit?

I thought the giant hog story turned out to be somewhat false- Didn't it turn out to be just a hairy pig that died?

Trivia: 'Presbyterians' is an anagram of 'Britney Spears'

Dunno, although there IS a photo of this massive beasty in the book, with several bleeding holes in it.

Ooh, some good ones there. Yeah, Im putting a bunch of those in.

It's time based, meant as sort of a party game(with optional AI of course). It's a bit like a game show in that regard I guess. Play a coupla rounds, build up some points, then start gambling with points. Highest score at the end wins.

I figure, for 200pts, it'll probably be better than most of the crap people have been releasing on xbox live.

What happened was that the kid opened fire on one of the neighbours "pet" hogs and wounded it. After a few hours of chasing it around it finally succumbed to the several gunshot-wounds and died. (Oh, how I loathe that kid and his father. To even dare to call it hunting...) Lol, the rant :3

Trivia:

-More than half the population in the World have never made or received a phone call.

-The mask used by Michael Myers in the original "Halloween" movie was actually a Captain Kirk mask painted white

Yup. Hey, as long as it's something I can get into question form, I can invent some wrong answers.

I watch you every 3 minutes ! ;D :P

President Nickson is one of two only presidents who's full name contains the letters to spell "criminal"

Seriously, get What's What : The Encyclopedia of Useless Information. IT HELPS.
