Hamsters are able to carry items as large as a Vauxhall Astra in their cheek pouches.

The novel "Return Of The King" was written by Joan Wilder, as evidenced in her movie "Jewel Of The Nile." Seriously. Go check it out - the facts are all there.

I should probably mention that this interesting fact was revealed to me by TheDevilsBidness on the Ain't It Cool News forum. I saw this & thought of you...

Fact: I have had the same bookmark for over twenty years, and still have (and use) the pen I sat my O Grades and Higeres with. Yet I always lose red biros and till receipts in a matter of hours.

I'm still using the bookmark I got in (IIRC) '94 (the year the film Jurrassic Park came out anyway - that was the first book I read using it)

But in my English GCSEs exams - my fountin pen died in the first, so I had to finish it in biro & my biro died in the second one, so I had to finish it in pencil.

Better set your phaser to stun.

fact: Muscovites often carve mongoose excrement into portraits of recently dead relatives, These are then used to keep evil sprits from resting on TV aerials at night.

Famous crisp snatcher Gary Lineker can’t actually eat the potato-derived snacks as they cause dog-like growths to sprout from his face. The crisps he "eats" in the Walkers adverts are in fact computer generated.

Alexander Graham Bell was a sexually frustrated man who invented the telephone solely so that he could phone adult chat lines. He died penniless in 1922 after receiving his first phone bill.
