    Depends what you mean by upside down. If you just flip it vertically then you get 5MIW5.

    We live closer in time to T-Rex than T-Rex lived to a Stegosaurus.

    Been listening to a lot of podcasts recently around the cosmos and time and it really is mind blowing!

    There are more than twice as many cells in any Excel tab than there are people on Earth. If you put a single character in the very bottom right cell print preview says you need to print over 38 million pages.

    Yes, you're right, I need a life

    Kangaroos have three legs, and the only time they use them independently is whilst swimming.

    Stolen from BBC drive time today


    Sevilla FC was duly formed on 25 January 1890 while a group of young British, mainly Scots, along with other young men of Spanish origin, celebrated Burns Night in Seville.

    Turning your phone round is upside down. When I do that I read SWIMS. Good enough for me.

    There are more LEGOô people/figurines on earth than Humans.

    The average person living in a first world country will spend 6 months of their life waiting at traffic lights, if they are from Edinburgh it's about a year

    The cornea of the eye is the only body part that doesn't have a blood supply, it gets oxygen directly from air.


    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

    No not really, the 'artichoke' is the root of the wild sunflower (not the ones grown for seeds and oil, wild sunflower has smaller flowers, not as tall) so it is actually part of a sunflower plant. also called a sunroot or earth apple.

    Interestingly enough an actual artichoke is a member of the thistle family of plants, it is essentially the bud of the flower of the cynnara (sp) thistle. The onopordum thistle is the one we know as the Scots Thistle.

    I should've paid more attention during botany lessons.

    After walking on the moon, Buzz Aldrin got a job at a Cadillac dealership as a salesman but failed to sell a single car.

    Hampden used the same pair of goalposts from 1903 all the way up to 1987
