If you shuffle a deck of cards there are 80,658,175,170,943,878,571,660,636,856,403,766,975,289,505,440,883,277,824,000,000,000,000 different options of arrangements. There is a website that gives you an idea of how astronomically huge that number is here.
Next time my niece wants to play hide and seek, that's the number she has to count to.

There was no Australian Open tennis tournament in 1986.

Until 1985, the Australian Open was played in late November - early December. After the 1985 tournament in December of that year, the date was switched to January with the next Australian Open played at Kooyong in January 1987 meaning there was no 1986 Australian Open.

I’m unsure of if the data would be skewed so I’ve assumed the median and average would be the same. Lot of brilliant people out there but also a lot of dead shits
There's a downward limit to how dumb you can be (i.e. basically clinically dead) whereas the topside is arguably infinite. Would have positive skew for sure!

Fans of the early 1970s show 'The Partridge Family' often thought that the cast were a real family. They were not of course, but Shirley Jones who played the mother was in real life the stepmother of David Cassidy.

and I think David was bonking his sister (Laurie)
No....The sister Laurie (Susan Dey) had a real-life, head-over-heels crush on him.....But she wasn't his type & he wasn't interested in her.

Both Cassidy & his step-mother have confirmed as such in their biographies.

There is no known complete recording of the Brisbane Bears second theme song, which was used after the Bears moved to Brisbane from 1993 onwards. To the tune of 'Glory Glory Hallejulah' similar to the theme song of WAFL team Subiaco, there are some incomplete clips of the song on Youtube (the team singing it after a victory in the mid 1990s, a small snippet of it, and a show choir performing some of the song at Centenary celebrations in 1996) but the Brisbane Lions don't have a complete version of the Bears song at the time of the Fitzroy merger, and if anyone else has one they haven't come forward with it either.

There are plenty of recordings of the first Brisbane Bears song 'Dare to Beat the Bear', you can find the original West Coast Eagles theme song that was changed about the same time and even some forgotten songs such as the ill-fated attempt to change the Sydney Swans song from the much-loved Notre Dame March to 'Up there for Sydney' but the Bears' second song remains elusive.
