You GUYS! I woke up this morning in a kind of "FUN FACTS!" mood - it could have largely been influenced by husband leaving his bus money behind and me having to throw pounds at him from the second floor window:

"Wow! This is SO much fun!! We should do this every day!"

So anyway I decided to gather up some FUN FACTS! for you for this FESTIVE FRIDAY!

If you like it - let me know and who knows - maybe I will start doing it as a regular feature. 
Here goes:

This came up on my MacBook - and I actually stopped my workout to get up and read what it was because SCHLOCKMEISTER is definitely a word I wanna throw into a sentence somehow.

WHAT?! New workout!

Also - I learnt on twitter yesterday that:

"You burn more kilojoules making 500ml breastmilk than you do fast walking for an HOUR."

That's it.
Am getting me one of those baby-things.

you can go ahead and type it.

Also - the "modern" qwerty keyboard was first invented to slow down the speed of typing, when those little typewriter arms used to get jammed from people typing too fast.

That's why I never brush my hair.
I like to keep the intelligence in.

You're totally gonna try that next time.
Think of me.

These FUN FACTS! Were gathered from a variety of sources/friends/MacBooks/the internet - 
so you can take them all with a pinch of salt - 

Which - in the early 1800s was 4 times as expensive as beef on the frontier - 
because it was essential in keeping people and livestock alive.

I (heart) random, fun and interesting facts :) Do you know that tiger's have striped skin, not just striped fur! Also the names of the continents all end with the same letter with which they start. And my favourite....drum roll please.....right-handed people live, on average, 9 years longer than left-handed people do. Happy Friday to you too :) Much love xxxx

Claudz said...

I loved this post! Learnt some useless things. So going to put a raisin in my bubbly soon.
Have a wonderful weekend

GeeGee said...

I dont drink champagne and the bottle at home is now going to be repurposed!

1. Loo roll was first advertised as being splinter-free in 1930
2.Goats milk is the most-widely used type of milk
3. I'm not a fan of that left-handed people/right handed people life assessment-worrying!

These are HYSTERICAL Che!!! So, definitely chucking my raisin into my champers, the a in thousand is incredible, wow!! As for the breastmilk, babies drink around 60-90mls at a time (even 30ml for a newborn) so it is going to take a lot longer than hour to get rid of those calories!! (from the mom who lost NO weight from breast-feeding. dammit.)
