But what about his mother?
The lore is that SHE is the one who invented it.

I found out during a quiet shift at the club work I do that the Great Wall of China has a secret ingredient in the mortar that has helped keep it standing throughout earthquakes and various attempts at knocking it down.

Just what is this secret ingredient? Sticky rice.

Is there anything these chinkies cant do with this fucking rice!

i (for imaginary) is the square root of -1 and technically doesn't exist.

However, if you raise i to the power of i, you get a perfectly real number, which was once used as the /$ exchange rate

Not necessarily. They started with 3 members but varied between 3, 4, 5 and 6 over the years.

True fact that ^^

Hence the probability of the next person you meet having an above average number of hands is almost 1.
