    The Worthless Trivia Thread, filled with factoids only really usable on game shows. Enjoy!

    Here's how it works: We all are filled with worthless trivia and factoids, here's your chance to share what you know with the rest of us.

    Remember: the more crazy, outlandish, outrageous, and truly unbelievable, the better, just be sure to keep it accurate.

    I'll share first: William Shatner turned 78 on March 22, and wasn't from Iowa (LOL), but from Canada.

    What share you?

    And his real last name was Morrison.

    Here are some of my "names" trivia:

    Elton John's real name is Reginald Dwight.

    David Bowie's real name is David Jones (he changed it so as to not be confused with Davey Jones of The Monkees)

    Alice Cooper's real name is Vincent Furnier (or Fornier, I have seen it both ways)

    Axl Rose's real name is William Bailey

    Here's a gross one: keep your razors, toothbrushes, whatever, more than 6 feet from the toilet for microorganisms(you know what i'm talking about) will contaminate pretty much everything in the bathroom. Yuck!

    That's more due to people tending not to wash hands after, than proximity to the toilet, I thought.

    Humans and dolphins are the only mammals that have sex for pleasure...not with each other, of course. (heard it somewhere, but don't know how exactly they found about the dolphin's motives)

    Yep, but he ran away from his owner that had named him Tralfaz.

    Oh yeah, this was proven by Mythbusters. Give a whole new perspective to the joke: Spots on the wall, by Who Flung Poo.

    Chimpanzees and bonobos do it, too; bonobos, especially, have something of a reputation for it

    Sorta. All their toothbrushes did test positive, yes, including the control brushes left outside the bathroom; however, their UCSF microbiology expert suggested that it wasn't airborne contact, nor proximity to the toilet that did it. (Gotta love DVD box sets :P)
