I can at least contradict the rumour that viewing multiple pages leads to multiple threadviews. Tried it on the minimize thread and it failed.

Sperm whales are not named so for their white color, but because when the first whalers caught one, they drilled into it's skull to extract the precious whale oil, only to find a white waxy substance instead. It was originally thought to be the whale's sperm, but that has since been disproven. It is not known what the biological function of the white waxy substance, now called spermaceti, is, but it is used in many cosmetics due to it's bright gleam and lack of any taste or odor.

One theory I've heard is that it controls the sperm whale's buoyancy.

Posting without actually looking. But I'm sure it counted as a view anyway.

Sucks how low the ratio is already, though. Posting three times without looking isn't really going to do heaps... :(

Also, my browser has this nasty habit of sending me back to the page after I post... this might have an effect on the post:view ratio.
