So I got a lot of good feed back from the last round of random keys I gave away. So I am going to do this one a little different. Comment here with a random fact that you find interesting and I will send you a friend request on Steam to send you the key/link. I have 21 and I actually know what these ones are. I already have all of these games and I just want to share them. When we talk I will give you a couple of options for games and I ask that you please take one that you don't already own.

EDIT: I also have one that is for music software.

Grab a water drop and sum it with another water drop. The result would be 1 water drop, but it will be bigger.

The biggest known diamond is Lucy and weighs in at 10 billion, trillion, trillion karats.

The most commonly stolen street signs are from the corner of Jack and Daniels in a town in Florida.

There is a town in Nevada called Uranus. And yes, you can get gas there.
Edit- You don't have to friend me or anything. I just LOVE to share random facts.

The Voyager 1 space probe, launched on the 5th of September 1977 is still operational and will remain until around 2025 when its radioisotope thermoelectric generators will no longer supply enough electric power to keep the scientific instruments operational. In late 2017, the Voyager team completed a successful test of the spacecraft's trajectory correction maneuver (TCM) thrusters which was the first time they were fired in 37 years (since 1980), and this may have extended the life of the Voyager-1 by two to three years

'Paprika' and 'Vampire' are the only two Serbian words to make it into common English usage. At least that is what a a Serbian guy once told me.

And you cant actually see the great wall of China from Space. It is long enough, but not wide enough

While vampir may technically be a word of Serbian origin, paprika is not. It is the Hungarian version, or diminutive, of papar, a South Slavic word, which in turn came from the Latin piper or modern Greek piperi, ultimately from Sanskrit pippalī.

Sloths sometimes mistake their arms for branches of a tree when they try to hold onto them.fall to the ground and die.

Also, Sloths can hold their breath longer than some aquatic mammals like dolphins.

Sloths are cool, I know

Daniel Lanois' career as a music producer really took off when Brian Eno brought him in to co-produce U2's albums The Unforgettable Fire and The Joshua Tree. AFter the Joshua Tree, Lanois went on to produce hit albums for Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, and Emmylou Harris. Prior to that his biggest accomplishment had been producing records for Raffi. One of his latest projects was being the producer for the Red Dead Redemption soundtrack.

Dolphins don't breathe automatically, rather it is always consciously done. An interesting consequence of the fact that they need to be conscious to control their breathing is that they can never be truly unconscious, even when they sleep.

Some dolphins don't even sleep. In the daytime, only one half of the brain is awake and at the nighttime - other half of the brain is doing the job.
Forgot the name of the species, can't translate it from my mother language.

A cat has the power to sometimes heal themselves by purring. A domestic cat’s purr has a frequency of between 25 and 150 Hertz, which happens to be the frequency at which muscles and bones best grow and repair themselves

The Spyro trilogy for Playstation 1 had some of the most unique anti-piracy software in all of gaming. It was celebrated not just by it's fanbase but those who attempted to pirate it. Basically, you got to play a part of the game, until you tried to win. Then the game wonks out in unique various ways that to this day delight me to know exist as I enjoy my Spyro trilogy on Steam.

-Sometimes the player will be lifted off the ground and returned to an earlier point in the level for no apparent reason.
-PAL copies of the game will switch between English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.
-Various enemies will not give Gems, and various Gems found on the ground will be removed."

You can balance an egg on its point on only 2 days of the year(unless you cheat and use salt). Those days are when gravity is at's most vertical, during the summer and winter solstice.

Couldn't you float something on water? It should be horizontal, and then an egg placed on it would be parallel to the current vector of gravity.
Or am I misunderstanding something?

A gene and protein that separates your right brain from the left, and determines you have two eyes is called sonic hedgehog. The gene’s symbol is SHH. The name wasn’t inspired directly by the game, but a comic-book series. A British post-doc named Robert Riddle drew inspiration from a Sonic comic his 6-year-old daughter was reading. The gene appropriately has a spikey appearance. More info about it here.

They actually can get severely depressed and die. This can easily happen to birds as well. I suspect fish may also be susceptible, but it'd be harder to tell.

In Math, Goedel's Theorem basically states that "Any consistent system containing at least some basic arithmetic must be incomplete."

In other words, any Math Theory you invent that has at least basic arithmetic (think basic sums and multiplications among integers) must also have at least one of the following properties:
i) It can be proven to be all bullshit;
OR
ii) There are perfectly valid, well constructed statements in your theory that are IMPOSSIBLE to be proven or disproved. (And we are not talking "This-sentence-is-false" kind of things -- technically, this is NOT a well constructed statement in logic)

For the usual Math, we dearly hope for (ii). :D

Although there is a myth that you cannot fold a piece of paper more than 7 times, since each time you fold the paper the thickness of it doubles and requires more and more energy to achieve it. But even so, it is not impossible, since in 2002 a high school student demonstrated that it is possible to fold 12 times a single piece of toilet paper of 1200m long. But the record currently belongs to a group of students from St. Marks school in Southborough and their teacher who in 2011 managed to fold an even longer piece of toilet paper a total of 13 times.

i think it was on mythbusters where they folded a giant piece of paper (inside a plane hanger) more than 7 times and iirc they could have folded it more than that. i'm pretty sure that whole 'myth' only applies to a standard size piece of paper.

yeah, i remember watching that episode and also thinking that they could have folded it again. i think the same thing about this myth, it just applies more to regular sized papers and just using human force.

WARNING: Do Not read if you love penguins.

WARNING: Censure might not be covered so only read on your own risk.

Lots of species of penguins are very bad boys and here's why: they get aroused very easily. In fact, those species do nothing but try to have sex for every possible chance they get. They don't even care what they're doing it to or what sex the other penguin is. They even try to have sex with ground. There was an experiment. Expeditors built snow ball and draw penguin head on top of it (on cardboard). Then waited and one penguin actually went for it and tried to have sex.
