Things you may or may not know:

If you place both of your hands together, fingers spread apart and bend your index fingers into the middle so that the first joints on the finger are touching, it's impossible to move the finger next to them (nearest the little finger) apart. This is because both fingers share one muscle tendon.

Opposite Karl Marx' tombstone in Highgate cemetery, is that of a bloke called Herbert Spencer (a nineteenth century philosopher who first coined the phrase 'survival of the fittest'). "Marx & Spencer" are thus buried close together.

You can use toothpaste as blu-tack if you don't want to tear off paint/wallpaper. It washes off easily.

Bats always exit and enter their caves from the left. Airline pilots use this principle to avoid crashing as they are trained to turn left in the event of a possible collision.

A boomerang that doesn't come back is called a stick.

According to a new study, 63% of men surveyed said they like to settle an argument by having sex. The other 37% of the men said they would never want to get into an argument with those men.

Given the proper amount of surprise a goldfish can beat the hell out of a gorilla.

The reason beer tastes so smooth is because it is good for you.

Black & Decker invented a drill especially for spacemen to take to the moon as prior attempts spun the spacemen round rather than the drill bit.

Before you criticise a man walk a mile in his shoes. That way when you do criticize him you'll be a mile away and have his shoes.

Did you know what makes yawns catching? If you see someone yawn then your body assumes that there isn't enough oxygen around (that's why you yawn - to get more oxygen to the brain) so it makes sure that you take at least as much as the other bastard who is trying to steal your oxygen.

In an average lifetime there will be over 50,000 images of you on photos you'll never see.

Spiral staircases are anti clockwise to make defending from above easier with a sword and attacking from below extremely difficult if right handed. Thus left handed swordsman were paid a premium.

The internet was invented by the American military as a durable scalable means of transferring information and so that in the event of nuclear war American military leaders could still look at pornography.

In 1978, in between Manchester City winning one game and their next there had been 3 Popes.
