One Million Factettes

Postby Vytron » Thu Dec 05, 2013 7:34 pm UTC

(Because, I thought the other game was going to be like this)

This is like count to a million, but instead of just posting numbers, we post factettes.

Factettes are just things that are true. That's about it. They don't need to be interesting or memorable or important, just true. Many people find factettes humorous just because of those properties, but of course, interesting, or amazing facts still count.

You also can win points by double posting (+1), you can only double post if nobody has posted after you in 48 hours.

Scoreboard
1 - Vytron

So I'll start with the first:

1 - Garlic Junior, a character from the DBZ anime, had some henchmen called the "Spice Boys". Their names were Mustard, Vinegar, Salt and Spice.

8 - There were a total of three "Voltrons": Voltron I of the Near Universe was the "Vehicle Force", and the "Lion Force" of the Far Universe was Voltron III. Voltron II, from the Middle Universe, featured three humanoid robots that combined into one multi-armed fighter; this version was never shown in the US (though toys based on this show were released).

29. Vatican City is the only country in the world completely surrounded by a city?

(I wonder if, technically, the Vatican City state as a whole is considered a part of Rome, or if Rome is technically considered a city with a hole in it).

31. Barack Obama is the 44th President of the United States, but only the 43rd person to have been president. This is because Grover Cleveland was both the 22nd President and the 24th President. But since he is not two separate people, in counting how many people have been President, the answer is 43.
