11. One in 10 Europeans is allegedly conceived in an Ikea bed.
Man, some people back there have lousy furniture taste.
14. It's possible for a human to blow up balloons via the ear. A 55-year-old factory worker from China reportedly discovered 20 years ago that air leaked from his ears, and he can now inflate balloons and blow out candles.
When I have a wee tyke of my own, I'm dressing this guy up as a clown. He'll be a hit with the kids. Take that, Superman. This guy's special power is making dog balloons and blow-up dolls with his ears. Brilliant.
16. The London borough of Westminster has an average of 20 pieces of chewing gum for every square metre of pavement.
So true. Another tip of advice for RugbyD. In addition, make sure you watch your step because there's horse doodie on the dirt tracks you walk on at Hyde Park (but of course, they're horse racing tracks).
33. Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has only been in an English pub once, to buy his wife cigarettes.
No surprises and when he walks out of the pub, he jumps in the air, slides on the pavement with both knees, and pumps his fists wildly...as if Didier Drogba scored a goal...or had taken a dive in the box for a penalty kick.
36. The average employee spends 14 working days a year on personal e-mails, phone calls and web browsing, outside official breaks, according to employment analysts Captor.
Exactly what I'm doing right now, but if I were to make a rough estimate, it's more like 300 days.
41. Tactically, the best Monopoly properties to buy are the orange ones: Vine Street, Marlborough Street and Bow Street.
Drat, that has my strategy of investing in Boardwalk and Park Place out of whack...if only I can find them on American Monopoly boards.
54. Deep Throat is reportedly the most profitable film ever. It was made for $25,000 (£13,700) and has grossed more than $600m.
Naturally. Too bad Debbie Does Dallas wasn't so successful.
59. Oliver Twist is very popular in China, where its title is translated as Foggy City Orphan.
I love the Chinese. They could've just dubbed Oliver Twist, London Orphan, but called it Foggy City Orphan for more visual effect, I suppose.
67. Giant squid eat each other - especially during sex.
You mean they eat each other and NOT have sex at the same time?
81. George Bernard Shaw named his shed after the UK capital so that when visitors called they could be told he was away in London.
Then it's possible to be in Paris and in London, n'est-ce pas?
89. Spanish Flu, the epidemic that killed 50 million people in 1918/9, was known as French Flu in Spain.
Much like the rest of the world, we Spanish love to blame everything on the French.
100. Musical instrument shops must pay an annual royalty to cover shoppers who perform a recognisable riff before they buy, thereby making a "public performance".
Nice. I can accidentally play Kumbaya on an acoustic in a guitar shop and get paid? Sweet.
94. Bill Gates does not have an iPod.
So what? I don't have one either much like any anti-Apple person. Big deal.
