Writing - 10 things we didn't know last week

Some great stuff this week from battling sea lions to clever crows and on to Chinese smuggler's haircut in North Korea!

1. Goats are surprisingly quick witted.

They're also very good pets.

2. Helsinki is the most expensive city in the world to order room service.


3. Ukraine's navy is equipped with combat sea lions.

Or not!


4. There have been three cricket matches played at the North Pole.


5. When crows drop stones into water to make food more accessible, they display the reasoning skills of children aged 5 to 7 years old.


6. Michael Gove is a fan of chap hop.


7. Tuberculosis can be passed from cats to their owners.


8. An aircraft's "black box" is actually two boxes.

They're also orange not black!

9. Chimpanzees have bromances too.


10. North Korea's "leader's haircut" - reportedly being rolled out to students across the country - is aesthetically similar to an earlier style known as the "Chinese smuggler haircut".

And the leader's haircut

Quite terrifying when you consider haircuts of leaders round the world. What would we look like if we  all looked like David Cameron, Barack Obama or Angela Merkel? The slightly worrying thing is if you Google world leaders a significant number look uncannily similar to Kim III.
