    Smile Facts about the Great Wall of China

    Facts about the Great Wall of China



    First built in the 7th century B.C, rebuilt and maintained between the 6th century BC and the 16th century, the great wall was built to protect the northern borders of the Chinese Empire from Mongolian attacks during the rule of successive dynasties.The most famous is the wall built between 220–200 BC by the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang while little of it remains. Tthe current wall was built during the Ming Dynasty.
    How long is the Great Wall?

    The Great Wall stretches over approximately 6,400 km (4,000 miles)from Shanhaiguan in the east to Lop Nur in the west, along an arc that roughly delineates the southern edge of Inner Mongolia, but stretches to over 6,700 km (4,160 miles) in total

    Who, when and why built the Great Wall?

    The Great Wall was first built in the 7th century B.C. when China was still divided into many small states.

    • It is the travel icon of China and a world renowned tourist destination.
    • It is a beautifully structured photogenic symbol with imposing watchtowers winding up and down steep hills, cliffs, plateaus and deserts from across the east coast to Xinjiang in the northwest of China.
    • It was built by over a million people who happened to be peasants, prisoners and soldiers and thousands of them died in the process.
    • It used to be called the Ten Thousand Li Wall which referred to the wall’s length. (1 li equals half a kilometer or one third of a mile).
    • It was during the Qin (pronounced as "chin") dynasty that the modern word "China" was derived.
    • The sections in the eastern part of China were built out of bricks and stones while in the western sections of wall were made out of less durable materials – earth and grass.
    • The watch towers on the wall served as a deployment zone between one another.

    Smile Microsoft crazy facts

    Microsoft crazy facts

    MAGIC #1
    Nobody can create a FOLDER anywhere on the computer which can be named as "CON".
    This is something pretty cool...and unbelievable. ..
    At Microsoft the whole Team, couldnt answer why this happened!
    TRY IT NOW, IT WILL NOT CREATE "CON" FOLDER

    MAGIC #2
    This is something pretty cool and neat...and unbelievable. ..
    At Microsoft the whole Team, including Bill Gates, couldnt answer why this happened!
    Try it out yourself...
    Open Microsoft Word and type
    =rand (200, 99)
    and then press ENTER

    MAGIC #3
    For those of you using Windows, do the following:
    1. Open an empty notepad file
    2. Type "Bush hid the facts" (without the quotes)
    3. Save it as whatever you want.
    4. Close it, and re-open it.
    is it just a really weird bug?
    You can try the same thing above with another sentence "this app can break"


    Explanation for Magic #1:
    In windows the folder name and the special system variables share the same interface, so when you create a folder with a system variable name it will consider that folder already exist!!
    these special system variables are available irrespective of path
    You cannot create a folder with these names also:
    CON, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3,COM1 to COM9 and LPT1 to LPT9....
    CON means console, COM1 means serial port 1, LPT1 means parallel port 1
