best fact, changed my life
User avatar #22 to #1 - steerablepizza ONLINE (07/26/2014) [-]
I think it was supposed to say that Fred (mr.) Rogers was red-green colorblind.

Mr Rogers is awesome.


That is the only fact we need to know.
User avatar #85 to #1 - cwilkens (07/27/2014) [-]
The fact was essentially

A marine biologist went on the show and was gonna feed the fish. The fish weren't in the mood and the producer afraid of having dead air time was like "lets just reshoot when they eat" and Mr. Rodgers was like "nah bruh, it'll teach kids the importance of patience"... At least, I think that was the fact they were going for

OP WHY Y
User avatar #13 to #1 - bobthedilder (07/26/2014) [-]
Mr. Rogers was in fact capable of feeding fish, but only during a green light.

That's not even green D:

but....
am i colorblind?
User avatar #53 to #51 - krabface (07/26/2014) [-]
No. It's blue
#58 to #53 - anon (07/26/2014) [-]
sorry m8, you should get tested
#136 to #58 - anon (07/27/2014) [-]
actually, green and blue are close enough in shades that, for any given person, the colors morph, and can be perceived as either or...

this is taken notice of in asian cultures, particularly Japanese, where there is no color name to differentiate blue and green, and the traffic lights, as such, can have either blue or green lenses, meaning the same signal...

Why was this thumbed down? It's correct.

I have the strangest mental image of a government representative standing over the corpse of Steve Irwin and saying 'Fancy a state funeral mate?'

This is Lockheed Martin's new SR72 Blackbird. I believe it's still in development.

It's designed for speeds of Mach 6, twice the speed of it's predecessor. It could reach London from New York in an hour.

And it looks like it's from Mass Effect.
User avatar #68 to #26 - smashingtonic (07/27/2014) [-]
Would a person be able to handle that kind of speed?
#75 to #68 - iambadatnaming (07/27/2014) [-]
Humans don't really have a problem with speed but acceleration and deceleration. as long as it didn't get to that speed too quickly and stop too quickly, there shouldn't be an issue as far as I know.
User avatar #96 to #75 - baditch (07/27/2014) [-]
Also, It's intended to be an unmanned aircraft. Forgot to mention that part.
#143 to #68 - crazyitalian (07/27/2014) [-]
it's unmanned, but keep in mind that during the Apollo missions, the spacecraft achieved speeds up to 24,000mph, which is about Mach 32

The "speed" we have to fear is warp drive aka ftl

The videos for the punic wars marketing were made by the team from Extra Credits, and higely worth checking out

The guy who presents those videos is into some weird stuff. Not sure if it can still be found on youtube though.
User avatar #203 to #201 - darrensankari (07/27/2014) [-]
Gonna need some reliable sauce for that claim.

That doesn't sound like him and he isn't credited anywhere in the description.

If only Total War: Rome wasn't so bad...
#12 to #9 - pentol (07/26/2014) [-]
TW:rome is excellent.
TW:rome2 however, isn't.

All I know about the game is that some bad ass threw a musket as a spear at a samurai.
#35 - warlockrichard (07/26/2014) [-]
the first rome totalwar was probably like 80% responsible for my love history and roman history in particular
User avatar #197 to #35 - fuzzysixx ONLINE (07/27/2014) [-]
It was AOE 1 and 2 for me, but 3 is my favorite game play. I've never played total war, x-plain please.
User avatar #198 to #197 - warlockrichard (07/27/2014) [-]
basically there are several different total wars and which one you're playing determines where and when the campaign takes place. you take control of one nation like say the roman empire and lead them to victory
User avatar #199 to #198 - fuzzysixx ONLINE (07/27/2014) [-]
Interdasting, I will have to check it out.
User avatar #169 to #35 - viscerys (07/27/2014) [-]
Dude, me too. I was sorely disappointed in Rome 2, though.
User avatar #117 to #35 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (07/27/2014) [-]
Age of Mythology was the reason for me.
User avatar #87 - mrgoodlove (07/27/2014) [-]
I like how Mr Rogers is just thrown in here without a fact. Even after death he's gangster as **** .
User avatar #167 to #87 - severepwner (07/27/2014) [-]
I didn't know he was deseased.

My kid received a book in the mail from that foundation, it was a "Learn the Alphabet" series, I read it to him

I think someone forgot the Mr. Rogers fact.

#153 - nudybooty (07/27/2014) [-]
Here. Since you forgot I shall spread the love:

Many of Mr. Rogers’ famous sweaters he wore on the show were made by his mother.

Mr. Rogers was a vegetarian. He didn’t smoke or drink or seem to have any major vices. He also stayed married to the same woman until his death; their marriage lasted 47 years.

Mr. Rogers was an ordained Presbyterian minister

He stood up to Congress and argued that recording television shows with VHS was fair use, and that doing this allowed working families to sit together and watch TV together.
User avatar #190 to #153 - wopwop (07/27/2014) [-]
It's funny how you state that he is a vegetarian saying like it's the best thing ever. (I'm not saying being one is bad) Funnyjunk usually hates on vegetarians so it's kinda strange since it's mr. Rogers it's automatically a good thing suddenly.
User avatar #200 to #190 - nudybooty (07/27/2014) [-]
I didn't say it was the best thing ever. I simple wrote "Mr. Rogers was a vegetarian." I didn't even say it was good
User avatar #209 to #200 - playerdous (07/31/2014) [-]
It came off as being implied by association with other things that are viewed as good
User avatar #210 to #209 - nudybooty (07/31/2014) [-]
It shows he is a huge animal lover so I guess it's kind of good
User avatar #196 to #153 - fuzzysixx ONLINE (07/27/2014) [-]
I saw him eat a ham sandwich once though
User avatar #163 to #153 - areancoconut (07/27/2014) [-]
He also got into legal disputes for hugging the children inappropriately behind the scenes.
User avatar #170 to #163 - sharklazers (07/27/2014) [-]
I'm gonna get in legal disputes for punching you in the ******* face. **** you.
User avatar #158 to #153 - redstonealchemist (07/27/2014) [-]
also being very religious, i hear he never once brought it up in his show
#159 to #158 - dumbasshunter (07/27/2014) [-]
wasn't he a Vietnam war veteran as well? and that's why is has all of those sweaters? so he can hide all of his war scars and tattoos.    
   
mr rodgers sounds bad ass

User avatar #160 to #159 - redstonealchemist (07/27/2014) [-]
don't know about war scars, but i did research before and he doesn't have any tattoos
User avatar #161 to #159 - thatnerdyguy (07/27/2014) [-]
Pretty sure that's just a rumor the internet made up.
#164 to #161 - upyoursnumbnuts (07/27/2014) [-]
Way before the internet. The Marines made that up.
User avatar #175 to #164 - brothergrimm ONLINE (07/27/2014) [-]
ahhhh the ******** military guys come up with when they're bored
#194 to #175 - upyoursnumbnuts (07/27/2014) [-]
You'd be surprised how many celebrities are supposedly special forces or snipers according to the military.
#171 to #159 - anon (07/27/2014) [-]
he was a pastor.
his mom knitted each of his sweaters
he was gentle as **** .
Always.
that war and scars crap is not true

Mr Roger's doesn't need a fact. Just Mr. Rogers.

Man **** the Selucids.
User avatar #133 to #131 - norkas (07/27/2014) [-]
And Gaul.

Backstabbing bastards.

what faction do you play as
#134 to #133 - pookahootycreeks (07/27/2014) [-]
Gods...I hate Gauls. My grandfather hated them too, even before they put out his eyes. Did you think I'd be out here on the frontier without good reason? Yes, Rome needs a strong frontier. No, Rome doesn't need unwashed barbarians at her gates! So, that's why I'm here, the leader of the Julii: to bring Roman order to stinking Gauls.
User avatar #135 to #134 - norkas (07/27/2014) [-]
Julii? I play Britannia because island and chariots and my dad plays Egypt because troop diversity.
#137 to #135 - pookahootycreeks (07/27/2014) [-]
I play julii for the superiority of rome, and the badass legionaries.
I love having a wall of hastati then a group of wardogs, backed by a wall of Principes finnally a rank of triarii. Flanked by skirmishers and cavalry, hasten let me down yet.
Because **** gauls.
