A Googol (10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) is bigger than the number of atoms in the known universe.
A Graham's number is unimaginably large..it is so large that there is no space in the entire observable universe to write it.
The last ten digits of Graham's number are ...2464195387.
According to the Australia Post guide there is not a Rome in Australia, although there is a Roma named after Lady Roma Bowen, formerly Contessa Diamantina Roma, the wife of the Queensland Governor of the time. The Diamantina River system is named in her honour as well.
The quote linked to there does not disprove the above "fact". The quote on the coca cola company website simply says coke has always been brown (at the point of sale). It does not say that it is not naturally green. i.e they may have always added colouring to it to make it appear brown rather than green...
None of the inner planets in the solar system has rings. That's why the poster originally put "Not true" before it. So far, only the gas giants have been confirmed to have rings. It's unclear if Pluto has them or not.

It's against the law to burp, or sneeze in a church in Nebraska, USA.
Nope. Who the hell would make such a law anyway?!
At this point, it wouldn't surprise me.

There is a city called Rome on every continent.
Every habitable continent, perhaps?

Useless Information You Really Need to Know...
If you yelled for eight years, seven months and six days, you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee. (Hardly seems worth it.)
Two-thirds of the world's eggplants are grown in New Jersey. (That's funny... at least two-thirds of the world's upraised middle fingers come from New Jersey, too.)
If you farted consistently for six years and nine months, enough gas would be produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb. (Now that's more like it.)
The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt blood thirty feet. (Yipes!)
Most banks have Braille on drive-through ATM machines. (Makes a lot of sense, doesn't it?)
Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people do. (If you're ambidextrous, do you split the difference? Anyway, is this going anywhere?)
A pig's orgasm lasts thirty minutes. (What? Can you just imagine it? That's almost beyond comprehension!)
Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour. (Still not over that pig thing... )
A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds. (Thirty minutes - can that be right?)
The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds. (In my next life I want to be a pig.)
The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping the length of a football field. (Can you imagine - thirty minutes!)
In his book "The Insects," naturalist Url N. Lanham reports that the aphid reproductive cycle is so rapid that the females are born pregnant. (Poor aphids – lucky pigs!)
A cockroach will live nine days without its head, before it starves to death. (Nothing new here. I know politicians who can go six years easy. Tell me more about the pig.)
Some lions mate over fifty times a day. (I still want to be a pig in my next life. Quality over quantity.)
The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off. ("Honey, I'm home. Wow, don't you look lovely! Hey, what the... ")
Butterflies taste with their feet. (That's something I always wanted to know.)
Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump. (OK, so that would be a good thing... but I can't get that pig thing off my mind. Thirty minutes!)
A cat's urine glows under a blacklight. (Wonder who was paid to figure that out. Your tax dollars at work.)
An ant can lift fifty times its own weight, pull thirty times it own weight, and will always fall on its right side when intoxicated? (I wonder if the pig falls on its right side when it's finished. I would be happy with ten... even five minutes!)
The only animal besides the human that can get sunburn is the pig. (And do you really think that the pig even cares? Thirty minutes is a half an hour!)
The first major use for peanuts was as food for pigs. (Hmmm... do you think that if one ate five bags of peanuts they might have a thirty minute orgasm?)
Peanuts are cholesterol-free. (A non-fattening aphrodisiac?)
Peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite. (Well, I'm not going to try eating any dynamite!)
The first notable use of peanuts as food for humans came during the Civil War, when both Northern and Southern troops used the peanut as a food source during hard times. (Guess this peanut thing isn't the answer. Wonder what else could make it last thirty minutes for the pig?)
An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain. (Hey, I know some people like that.)
Starfish have no brains. (I know some people like that too.)
Polar bears are left-handed. (Who knew? Who cares!)
Every year 11,000 Americans hurt themselves trying out bizarre sexual positions. (Hmmm... I better watch out.)
Sex burns 360 calories per hour. (Wonder how many calories a pig burns during orgasm...)
The first toilet ever seen on television was on "Leave It To Beaver." (Maybe so, but you never saw them flush it.)
The first couple to share a double bed on prime-time television was Fred and Wilma Flintstone. (Doesn't that just figure - cartoon characters! You know, pigs don't need beds.)
One male dog or cat can personally father 750 babies. (Who cares? It's the pigs that are having all the fun.)
The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue. (Hmm... really?)
A giraffe has a 21-inch tongue. (There are times that could be useful... )
A crocodile cannot stick its tongue out. (I wonder if the pig sticks its tongue out during orgasm.)
There are only three animals with blue tongues, the Black Bear, the Chow dog and the blue-tongued lizard. (Who cares?)
Everyone's tongue print is different. (So what? Change the subject!)
Your nose and ears never stop growing. (I wonder... oh, never mind. Let's just move along, please.)
Hershey's Kisses are called that because the machine that makes them looks like it's kissing the conveyor belt. (That might be interesting to watch... just visualize it.)
Barbie's measurements if she were life size: 39-23-33 (That's interesting, but every time I see the number 3, I can't help but think about those pigs!)
The Ramses brand condom is named after the great pharaoh Ramses II who fathered over 160 children. (Looks like we're changing the numbers as a distraction now.)
One beaver can cut down 216 trees a year. (Are we going to start with the beaver jokes now?)
Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure. (What about the pig? With a thirty minute orgasm, I highly doubt that a pig is doing it as a substitute for going to the gym!)
