DeltaPunch: One of the funnest things I've recently read is Wiki on the accuracy of the numbers and figures quoted in the original Galaxy Song:Eric Idle sings that the Earth is "revolving at nine hundred miles an hour"; the actual figure (at the equator) is 1,038. He gives the Earth's orbital speed as 19 miles (31 km) per second, compared with the real figure of 18 to 18.5.
WhippingBoy: Ah, Eric Idle. Is there nothing you won't whore yourself out for?
