• There are 2,598,960 five-card hands possible in a 52-card deck of cards.

• It is said that Rene Descartes came up with the theory of coordinate geometry by looking at a fly walk across a tiled ceiling.

• According to Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity, it is possible to go slower than light and faster than light, but it is impossible to go at the speed of light. Also, there is a particle called a tackyon which is supposed to go faster than light.

• Try this out. It is a simple way to rapidly come up with the answer whenever you are multiplying by 9.
Hold out your hands in front of you so that your thumbs point toward one another.
Visualize that your left pinky finger represents 1, the next finger 2, and so on left to right, until your right pinky finger represents 10. Those fingers represent the number you wish to multiply by 9. To do so, simply put the finger down you wish to multiply by 9. All fingers to the left of the down finger represent the tens digit of the answer while all fingers to the right represent the ones digit.
Example: 6 x 9. Put the finger representing 6 down (the right hand thumb). To the left of the down finger, you have 5 fingers up. That's your tens digit. 5. To the right, you have 4 fingers up. There's your ones digit. 4. Put those together and you have your answer: 54.
