Whilst filming “Braveheart” Aussie actor Mel Gibson decided to play a joke on the English by wandering into the houses of Parliament dressed as William Wallace and challenging the British Government to a fight. The prank went hideously wrong however when he was sentenced to death by disembowelment and hanging, drawing and quartering.

FACT one of the quarters of William Wallace is buried under Wallace Green, Berwick Upon Tweed.  One of Guy Fawkes' quarters was gibbeted at Berwick, too.  'Tis a place with a most bloodthirsty history (and home to Captain and Mrs Zeep for many a year)

Scientists have discovered a type of grain, which displays an unusually firm surface texture. It is generally being referred to as “hard pore corn”.

Not so much a fact as such, but here's the Chef's Tip for March:

This Shrove Tuesday, which falls on 4 March, liven up the humble pancake by turning it into a crepe suzette.  Mix the juice and zest of limes or lemons with orange juice, pour into melted butter and caster sugar in a pan, then heat each pancake in the tangy juices for 30 seconds each side.

FACT
Berwick-upon-tweed [that would be Berwick Rangers FC] is the only english football team allowed to play in the scottish leagues. because they new every english team would beat them

...and most Scottish teams come to that, though they did hold Celtic to a draw not so long ago - not bad for a bunch of part-timers.
