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.

Humphrey Davy
Humphrey Davy (of miners safety lamp fame) was James 'Steam Engine' Watt's mothers lodger. This is by far and away my favourite bit of useless information.

what is the obssession
with polar bears?
and elephants?
It's not like you can have them as pets... Although, in the book "Jurassic Park" by Michael Crichton - they clone a psychotic 6" elephant before they go on to the dinosaurs...

When your hamster dies, do not fret... boil the deceased in some water and sugar until it thickens - thereby creating a jam. Bury a jar of said jam in your garden and await spring. I guarantee you will see new life from your garden in the form of a fresh patch of tulips. Why? You always get tulips from hamster jam.

Jeremy Beadle does have a fun size crabs hand, I managed to get a good long look at when I was in the cafe of the happily defunct Sheffield Centre for Popular Music and he was sat at the next table. I even mentioned it as a plus point on the cafe comments card.

And in case anyone missed it on my previous post, when elephants die in the zoo they are cut up with chainsaws.

Flushing toilets
I'm not entirely sure about this one but i remember hearing somewhere that the first flushing toilets were in BC Crete in some palace.

Feel free to correct me though

It is a well know fact....
.... that carnies have small hands and smell like cabbage. This rule can be applied not merely to carnival folk but also to travellers and gypsies in general.


It is a little known fact that Jeremy Beadle does NOT in fact have one hand smaller than the other, it is the effect of perspective when he stands at an angle. Both hands are full-sized, not fun-sized.

dragonfly nymphs
the dragonfly nymph is permanently boz-eyed. Its eyes are focused at a point about 20mm directly in front of it. The rest of the world is a blur. However when a tasty beastie appears in focus it is at lethal range of the nymphs harpoon-like mouth parts.
