1. Buzz Aldrin claimed $33.31 in travel expenses around his trip to the moon.

Cheaper than going by car!
-------------------------------------

Image result for odd numbers

2. For three months, Leicestershire police didn't investigate attempted burglaries if they occurred at odd-numbered properties.

That's not odd just rude!!!


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

3. Keith Richards thinks Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is "rubbish".

Silly old sod!
-------------------------------------

Image result for women who break up

4. Women suffer more than men during relationship break-ups, but they recover better.

5. Armadillos are bullet-resistant.

Image result for reading for pleasure

6. People who regularly read for pleasure are less likely to have feelings of stress and depression, have higher self-esteem, are better able to deal with difficult situations and have superior sleeping patterns.

7. To avoid openly drinking vodka in front of elders, which would be disrespectful, Uzbek men sometimes drink it from a teapot.

What about the women?

10. Every London Underground line's Twitter feed has either the Myers-Briggs personality type ESTJ ("The Doer") or ESTP ("The Guardian") - with the exception of the Waterloo and City Line, which is ESFP, "The Performer".

Pardon?
