10 things we didn't know last week.

Another collection of amusing to barmy weekly facts that just go towards enriching our lives by providing us with a smile.

1. In primates there is a correlation between female infidelity and males having large testicles.

Defence rests!!!

2. Hillary Clinton hasn't driven a car since 1996.

Doing her best to keep death of the roads!!


3. Biodynamic wine-makers in Burgundy soothe their vines after hail storms with homeopathic doses of arnica.

Been drinking too much of their own products.

 In 1985, the then Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev banned the sale of vodka before lunch-time.


5. If you have an itchy arm, looking in the mirror and scratching the mirror image of that arm (the one that isn't bothering you) will help, although it only provides a quarter of the relief of scratching the itchy arm.


6. Food can be grown 100 feet (30 metres) underground.

And I thought that my father was mining coal.

7. David Cameron and Al Murray share William Thackeray as an ancestor.


8. Humans picked up gene types linked to smoking addiction when they interbred with Neanderthals.


9. Half of men have no idea of their partner's dress size.

Why would they need to? It is rather like men who know their girlfriend's ring size - what's that all about?

10. You can open a can of food just by rubbing it on a concrete surface.

But do you have any control over extracting the contents and will the said foodstuffs have powdered can as a garnish?

God Bless
