Writing - 10 things we didn't know last week

There are some really weird things in the news this week including a re-visit to Iceland but not elves this time.



1. It would cost £12.6 billion to issue every man, woman and child in the UK with an owl (and £69.3 billion if each was to get its own aviary).

I love owls but wouldn't necessary want one at home!
--------------------------------------

2. Group jogging is a crime in Burundi.

Thank goodness.
-------------------------------------


3. Salads taste better if they are arranged to look like a Kandinsky painting.

Anything that can make salads taste better is a bonus.
-----------------------------------


4. Courtney Love rereads the Julian Fellowes novel Snobs every year.


-----------------------------------


5. Despite not having ears, crabs can hear.

Pardon!!!


----------------------------------------



6. The whole of England and Wales - with the exception of the City of London, the Isles of Scilly and Skokholm Island - is designated as a "rabbit-clearance area".

No it isn't a spelling mistake.
--------------------------------------

7. The 18th and 75th minutes have been the most common times to score in each half since the World Cup began in 1930.


-------------------------------------

8. An admiral's uniform has slightly wider gold braid when it is worn by a Royal.


------------------------------------



9. Some spiders eat fish.

Only on Fridays


------------------------------------


10. More than half of Icelanders entertain the possibility that invisible people exist.

Not elves this time!
