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.

Swahili and consonants
Contrary to popular belief, "Jambo!" doesn't really mean hello in Swahili. It's only used when addressing tourists.
EDIT: Fair play. turns out i have useless wrong information. Hooray!

The word with the longest collection of consecutive consonants is "polyrhythmic," closely followed by "Knightsbridge".

Excellent QOTW!
