» Useless Information

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!

» Impromptu Games You Play

Add-on to 'Tally the catchphrase'
Requires at least 2 people. Each person chooses a catchphrase. When the winning catchphrase is uttered a set number of times, the person who chose it must exclaim "(insert name of catchphrase uttering person)-go"

(e.g Ben-go! or Jim-go!)

It's much clearer than i've made it seem

» Old People Talk Bollocks

talking of the colours of cars...
My grandad used to often get confused if too many visitors came to his house. Mid conversation, he butted in loudly "talking of the colours of cars, which we weren't, but i'd like to - who's is the red one?"
