The term googol is 10 x 100 or the number 1 followed by 100 zeros. A googolplex is 1 x 100 googols the number 1 followed by a googol of zeros. Basically, in the words of Milton Sirotta(Edward Kasner's nine-year-old nephew), he proposed the term googolplex to be, "one, followed by writing zeroes until you get tired."

Quote

The googolplex then, is a specific finite number, with so many zeros after the 1 that the number is a googol. A googolplex is much bigger than a googol. You will get some idea of the size of this very large but finite number from the fact that there would not be enough room to write it, if you went to the farthest star, touring all the nebulae and putting down zeros every inch of the way.

Today's fun fact is: Marshmallows Were Originally Made from the Sap of the Marshmallow Plant.


Quote

Marshmallows date back to as early as 2000 BC and were considered a delicacy deemed worthy only for gods and royalty. During those times, Egyptians made individual marshmallows by hand by extracting sap from a mallow plant and mixing it with nuts and honey.
This delicious sweet developed a new form when, in the 1800s, candy makers in France took the sap from marshmallow plants and combined it with egg whites and sugar. The mixture was whipped by hand and took the form of the marshmallow we all know today. Since they were no longer reserved for people of high status, the demand for marshmallows among the public required candy makers to speed up the production process, so they developed a system known as the starch mogul system. The starch mogul system used corn starch molds to form the marshmallows.

Here's today's fact. The Curious Case of the U-1206 aka The only warship in naval history to be doomed by its own malfunctioning toilet.

Quote

This submarine may never be as famous as the Titanic, but the uncanny story of how—and why—it sank has earned it a place in Uncle John’s Stall of Fame.

GOING TO SEA
On April 6, 1945, a German navy submarine named the U-1206 departed from the port city of Kristiansand, in Nazi-occupied Norway, and began its first combat patrol. Assigned to the waters of the North Atlantic, its mission was to seek out and destroy British and American ships on the high seas.

For the 50-man crews aboard submarines like the U-1206, life wasn’t just extremely dangerous; it was also very unpleasant: Quarters were cramped, and the bathrooms were no exception. There were only two heads (toilets), and because one of the heads was right next to the galley, the space was often used to store food. When it was, the toilet was unavailable, meaning that the entire crew had to share the remaining toilet.

UNDER PRESSURE
The plumbing on German subs of that era differed from American and British subs in one important respect: The German toilets discharged their contents directly into the sea, instead of into a holding tank. Not having such a tank saved precious space, but it came at a price. The toilets could only be used when the submarine was traveling on or near the ocean surface. When the submarine was submerged, the pressure outside the hull was too great for the toilets to be able to flush.

If nature called under such circumstances, crew members had to use buckets, tin cans, and whatever other containers they could get their hands on. They had to carefully store the contents of all those containers—don’t spill!—until the submarine surfaced, when they could be poured into the toilets and flushed, or taken topside and emptied into the sea.
The ventilation systems on World War II German subs were notoriously inadequate, which meant that even in the best of circumstances, the air was foul with diesel fumes, human body odor, and other smells. When the toilets were unavailable, and all those buckets and cans were filled to overflowing with you-know-what, the stench was even worse.

HEADS UP!
The U-1206 had a new-and-improved plumbing system. Unlike many subs in the fleet, it had high-pressure toilets that could be used at greater depths than the standard heads could. But the new system was very difficult to operate. The toilets came with complicated instruction manuals, and a few members of the crew had to be trained so that they could serve as toilet-flushing “specialists.”

Barely a week into the U-1206’s first patrol, Captain Karl-Adolf Schlitt (who was commanding a sub for the first time) had to use the head while the sub was cruising at a depth of 200 feet, some eight miles off the coast of Scotland. Rather than request the assistance of the toilet specialist, Schlitt tried to follow the instructions in the manual to flush the toilet himself. Something went wrong—and when Schlitt asked the toilet specialist for help, something went wrong again. The specialist opened the outside valve—the one that opened to the sea—while the inside valve was open, causing a torrent of water to flood into the sub.

WHAT A GAS
It was then that another flaw in the U-1206’s design became apparent. When a submarine is submerged, it runs on electric motors powered by giant banks of batteries. And the U-1206’s batteries were in a compartment directly below the malfunctioning toilet. The seawater quickly combined with battery acid and created deadly chlorine gas, which began to spread throughout the sub.

As the gas filled the submarine, Schlitt had no choice but to order the submarine to surface so that the gas could be vented and replaced with breathable air. Because they surfaced within sight of the Scottish coastline, they were quickly spotted by Allied aircraft and attacked. One crew member died in the melee that followed; three others fell overboard and drowned.

The U-1206 was badly damaged in the attack and could not dive. Seeing no way to save his submarine, Captain Schlitt ordered the crew into the lifeboats; then he scuttled the ship, making it the only warship in naval history to be doomed by its own malfunctioning toilet. Thirty-six members of the crew were rescued by small boats in the area; 10 others made it to shore in their lifeboats and were captured.

August 20th fact is about James "Jimmy' Stewart.

James Stewart was the first movie star to enlist in the military for World War II. He joined a year before the Pearl Harbor bombing. At first, he was refused entry into the Air Force because he was five pounds 5 pounds under the required 148 pounds. Mr. Stewart managed to talk the recruitment officer into ignoring his weight. In time, he became an active duty Colonel, and then in the U.S. Air Force Reserves(1959), he became a Brigadier General. Jimmy earned the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal, the Croix de Guerre and seven battle stars. Another Fun Fact is Walter Matthau was a Sergeant in the Air Force Reserves under the command of Brigadier General James Stewart.

August 24th facts are:
  • Saturn’s density is low enough that the planet would float in water.
  • 68% of the universe is dark energy, and 27% is dark matter; both are invisible, even with our powerful telescopes, this means we have only seen 5% of the universe from earth.
  • In the past 20 years, scientists have found over 1,000 planets outside of our solar system.
  • There are more stars in space than there are grains of sand on every beach in the world.
  • On Jupiter and Saturn, it rains diamonds.
  • Earth is the only planet that isn't named after a god.


August 25th facts are:
  • The word “gorilla” is derived from a Greek word meaning, “A tribe of hairy women.”
  • Gorillas burp when they are happy.
  • Gorillas have unique nose prints, much like human fingerprints, which can be used to identify individuals.
  • Gorillas can eat up to 50 pounds of food each day.
