Writing - 10 things we didn't know last week

Cheese, sharks and dog poo this week!

Isn't that tantamount to cannibalism?

2. The most common surname for doctors in the UK is Khan.


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


3. Lebanon has a craft beer industry.

4. Man-eating sharks are nine times more likely to kill men than women.

Why else call them 'maneaters'?
----------------------------


5. David Hockney's dachshund once defecated on the floor of Dennis Hopper's Frank Gehry-designed home, prompting a furious reaction.

So cute!

6. Monkeys at the top and bottom of the social pecking order have physically different brains.

8. There are £1,500 chickens that are entirely black.
