Some more useless information!

I do like these snippets that the BBC kindly issues on a Friday so thought they could be shared again!
1. "Nice" originally meant foolish or silly.
2. More rural homes have broadband than urban dwellings.already discussed on another thread
3. 27% of people have opened a bottle with their teeth.
4. Britain has the fifth largest Jewish population in the world.
5. Brain chemical oxytocin makes us trust strangers with money.
6. Women drivers are three times more likely than men to suffer whiplash injuries if their car is hit from behind.
7. Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams is deaf in one ear.
8. Skunks can be de-scented to make better pets.
9. You can lessen jet lag by not eating.
10. The "$100 laptop" now costs $75.
Well it is a long weekend [well for our younger working  friends!]........................... Smiley Smiley Smiley

Re: Some more useless information!

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and
neither of them wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs,
the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?"
"Yep," the wife replied , "in-laws''

UNDERSTANDING WOMEN..
(A MAN'S PERSPECTIVE)
I know I'm not going to understand women.
I'll never understand how you can take boiling hot wax,
pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the hair out by the root,
and still be afraid of a spider..

Re: Some more useless information!

We managed Home Counties to Cairndow once at the stressful start of a holiday in Scotland - about 450 miles.  Crazy
Only broken by the sight of the original Loch Fyne Oyster Bar - "fancy lunch there?"
(started about 5am, arrived almost bang on midday)

Re: Some more useless information!

Yes forecast isn`t good, especially Sunday.....
here`s a couple I took last weekend..... first one is a Red Kite, near Wallington on the thames,
second one (a bit dark) is of a falconry display near here.
Third one is a heron on a garage roof in Lee-on-the-solent
Fourth is a "red panda" same place as falconry display
