      Upon opening his crypt in 2017, acclaimed artist Salvador Dali's famous 10 past 10 moustache was found to have remained in a perfect state even after 28 years.


      I can only hope that, if I am ever exhumed, my ironic t-shirts will be just as relevant.

      Octopuses have individual miniature brains for each of their tentacle, as well as genitals at the end of each tentacle.


      I've heard of men thinking with their dicks but this is just bizarre...

      1874, 9th of November, the New York herald reported that in the night: "The wild animals broken loose from Central Park!! Terrible scenes of mutilation!! Savage brutes at large!!!" It reported that their were 49 deaths and 200 injuries, as well as details of where animals had been sighted, including a lion in a church and a rhinoceros in a sewer.


      Though they had actually made the entire story up, as the article concluded with: "Of course the entire story given above is a pure fabrication. Not one word of it is true. Not a single act or incident described has taken place, it is a huge hoax, a wild romance." Their reasoning for writing such a story was given in the next headline: "What would we do in New York if this happened?"


      The story caused widespread panic on the streets of New York, despite not being real.


      This would be like the false reporting of a large scale terrorist attack today.

      A "kibblesworth" is defined as the footling amount of money by which a price is less than a sensible number. Aka: the missing penny of the 99 cents.


      This is why I believe in the creation of a 99¢ coin.

      The coronation of Queen Victoria was a disaster that lasted five hours, to begin with the Archbishop of Canterbury forced the coronation ring onto the wrong finger, causing the young Victoria severe pain, they were unable even to remove the ring afterwards (three years later he did the same thing again at her wedding).


      The Bishop of Bath and Wells accidentally turned over two pages in the service book, completely cutting out the section were they made her queen. Thus making the coronation invalid, it was only after the coronation was over that they realised what had happened and had to bring her back and do it all again.


      As the Lords were being presented to her, the elderly, and rather aptly named, Lord Rolle became globally famous for tripping over the steps leading to the throne and rolling all the way down, the Queen however had not particularly endeared herself to the public until that moment, when she got up and tried to help him.


      There where numerous other accidents and failures throughout the ceremony, all well worth looking into.

      The Hero Ant (Malagidris sofina) is a species of cliff-dwelling ant, from Madagascar, that has a rather unique way of getting rid of predators.


      It will grab ahold them and then jump off the cliff its nest is built upon, pulling the predator with them, and as it is so light and small, the ant, will land relatively unharmed, whereupon it lets go of the predator and proceeds to climb back up to the nest.


      I want this to be my method of stopping intruders, choke slamming them off the balcony.

      Humans have the hibernation gene, but ironically it is dormant.


      Though under certain extreme circumstances humans have shown the ability to enter a hibernation like state.


      Such as a 16 year old boy that stowed away in the wheel well of an aircraft travelling between California and Hawaii, despite the freezing temperatures and low-oxygen environment the boy was found perfectly unharmed, though slightly dazed, at the end of the flight. It is thought that he entered a type of hibernation to survive the adverse conditions.


      I did once sleep for two days straight, I guess now I know why I didn't die.

      How many Chinas are there?

      Depending upon who you ask you will find that the answer is two: the People's Republic of China, aka the China we all think of, and the Republic of China, perhaps better known as Taiwan.


      The reason being for this is that originally the Republic of China (ROC) was a government that covered all of China and its territories, including the island of Taiwan. Though after the communist uprising and the ensuing Chinese Civil War (1927 - 1936 and 1945 - 1950)  the ROC was driven out of the mainland, forcing it to take refuge on the island of Taiwan were it continued to claim to be the true government of China, despite the establishment on mainland China of the People's Republic of China (PRC).


      The result of this being that both the ROC and the PRC claim to be the legitimate government of all of China, leading to there being two Chinas.


      Though in order to avoid confusion Taiwan is used for the ROC island nation.

      It should also be noted that the Chinese aren't to fond of people mentioning Taiwan as the other China.


      So ladies and gentlemen I give you the ultimate petty fight.

      The human body is actually covered in taste receptors, from top to toe, head to anus. Everywhere, including but not limited to: the stomach, intestines, pancreas, lungs, and even the brain, also yes ladies and gentlemen they are even found on and in the genitalia.


      The reason for there being all over our bodies is not actually known, though it is thought that it may in some cases aid in the detecting of certain sugars and amino acids. Though their use as a whole is almost entirely unknown.


      From testing on mice it has been determined that for whatever reason, in mammals these receptors may have a significant role in fertility, as test mice, after having their extra receptors removed, were shown to have low sperm count and their spermatozoa were not developed properly, leaving them, for whatever bizarre reason, sterile.


      Now if you need me I am going to a wine tasting.

      In the 1950s the American philosophy professor Sidney Morgenbesser went to a lecture by the English linguistics expert J.L. Austin, who claimed that while some languages use double negatives to make a positive, no languages use a double positive to make a negative. From the back of the room came Morgenbesser's distinctive New York drawl:


      "Yeah, yeah..."


      Well played Morgenbesser, well played...
