The biggest roundabout in the world is located at Putrajaya in Malaysia. It is 2.2 miles (3.5 km) in diameter.
That's big!

Are we talking about that 'inner' complete ring? Because the outer edge road is just a coastal road and not a roundabout. That bridge coming in from the bottom is about 110 feet wide and the roundabout is approx. 12 times that width, soooo... that's not anywhere near 2.2 miles wide. More like a quarter mile wide.

I believe you missed the "Useless" in Useless fact of the day.

Why? You got one you think is bigger?

Circumference looks more accurate to me. But then again, I really don't know crap about this sorta thing.

I just like the photo and the fact Syd posted it.

Still, there are places I don't want to be poked..

For the brave, BBC did a piece.... "penis injections on the rise." They must have spent a bit of time tittering about that line...

Heh Ok that's funny. Try not to fall down too much though eh? Too much asphalt isn't good for you or the bike.

Yup, that certainly fits the pretty useless bill However if I even find myself at Macy's in Hollywood Fla it'll be useful.

Please DO NOT tell me what the weather is like there....

How many dimples are on a golf ball?

The dimples are usually the same size as one another, but some golf balls have several different sizes of dimple on the same ball. Any number between 300 and 500 dimples is reasonable, and 336 is a common number.

Wiz of Oz museum is in Kansas, go figure, and we stopped by on the drive from Denver to Cleveland. Munchkins hand and foot prints in front and a lot of fun inside. You can sit in the wizzes chair.

We had a Citation, supplied as a company car by the firm my wife worked for at the time. What a pile of excrement!
