What they don't mention is that it was because he was also the first newspaper carrier and he was looking for tips.

When did a random piece of trivia ever help anyone get laid?

Did you look that up in your encyclo-pay-dia, subby?

It's just an icebreaker. "So, you're Subby's mom" works just as well.

If that was the requirement for getting tail, I'd be the Wilt Chamberlain of Fark....

I notice the image includes the supplying of alcohol to a minor.

Subby, thinking that will get you laid is the reason you will never get laid.

Yes, because we all know trivia buffs are always the first ones the ladies go for at a party.

The two things that will help you get laid:

A large bulge in your pants.

A larger bulge in your wallet.

Did you know that the original name for Pac-Man was Puck-Man? You'd think it was because he looks like a hockey puck but it actually comes from the Japanese phrase 'Paku-Paku,' which means to flap one's mouth open and closed. They changed it because they thought Puck-Man would be too easy to vandalize, you know, like people could just scratch off the P and turn it into an F or whatever.

"1843?  That's fascinating and it'll definitely get you headed toward my bed.  But, if you want between these thighs, you're going to need to answer a few more questions. Let start with Star Trek."

*wakes up*  "Dammit."

Did you further kn0w that the arcade version of Pac-Man has a maximum possible score of 3,333,360?

Did your mother ever play Pac-man in the shower?

You have erotic dreams about Sheldon from Big Bang Theory? Curious choice. The character seems like he'd be so obsessed with calculating the precise methodology and mechanics of a sex act, he'd never get around to performing it.

Stephen Fry asserted this on QI. It was also on 8 out of 10 Cats. Jimmy did.

Nobody gets laid at holiday parties, that's just on TV.   Also, Christmas sucks.

"There really isn't much more known about why dead birds are shown on several cards," Grossman wrote in an email. "Another time, another sensibility."

OK Grossman, now go and google "Burying the wren".
A dead bird is exactly what Weceslas was most likely to
see when he looked out on the Feast of Steven.
