This is a question Useless Information

Did you know that crabs wee through their eyes? That maidenhair moss is so called because Anglo-saxons thought it looked like pubes? That Albanians have 17 different words for moustache? Astound us with your utterly useless and obscure knowledge.

Did you know?
In Italian one cannot distinguish between:
* a nephew and a son-in-law / neice and daughter-in-law (nipote / nipota)
* to bring and to take and to wear and to carry (portare)
* to jump and to skip (saltare)
* to skid and to slide (scivolare)
* to punch and to sting (pugnare)
* 'even' and 'also' (anche)

And on..

Yes, useless in the extreme to anyone, unless you are learning Italian.

Edit: Oh, and the new Bertolli sauce billboard is WRONG! It should say: 'Aroma Generosa', being feminine (and the phrase wouldn't make sense to an Italian anyway - how can a smell be generous?)
