    Interesting things you (Maybe) didn't know

    Remember those tv commercials for "John West" salmon etc?
    Well John West is now wholly owned by the publicly listed Thai Union Group (TUF).
    It is the worlds largest tuna producer.
    There is currently some media concern about abuse of trafficked labour by the thai fishing fleet. A very good investigative article on BBC news site now.
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?

    We have John West in Denmark too, and it sucks. It's one of the cheaper brands though.

    "Its the fish John West rejects, that makes John West the best",
    That was their thing once.
    Fast forward to 2013....
    "It's the fish my cat wouldn't eat, that ended up at John West".

    Emus and kangaroos cannot walk backwards, and are on the Australian coat of arms for that reason.

    The very first bomb dropped by the Allies on Berlin during World War II killed the only elephant in the Berlin Zoo.

    Certain frogs can be frozen solid, then thawed, and survive.

    The cigarette lighter was invented before the match.

    A person can live without food for about a month, but only about a week without water.
    If the amount of water in your body is reduced by just 1%, you'll feel thirsty.
    If it's reduced by 10%, you'll die.

    Every year about 98% of atoms in your body are replaced.

    Deer can't eat hay.

    Human birth control pills work on gorillas.

    There are more than fifty different kinds of kangaroos.

    A group of twelve or more cows is called a flink.

    On average, 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents daily.

    Donald Duck comics were banned from Finland because he doesn't wear any pants.

    Leonardo Da Vinci invented scissors.

    The glue on Israeli postage stamps is certified kosher.

    There is a city called Rome on every continent.

    The elephant is the only mammal that can’t jump!

    Most dust particles in your house are made from dead skin.

    Women blink nearly twice as much as men.

    Coca-Cola would be green if colouring weren’t added to it.

    Earth is the only planet not named after a god.

    A man named Charles Osborne had the hiccups for 69 years!

    Owls are the only birds who can see the colour blue.

    If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.

    Some lions mate over 50 times a day(but only when in Pattaya).

    All polar bears are left-handed.

    Rats and horses can't vomit.

    Like fingerprints, everyone's tongue print is different.

    111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321

    Bullet proof vests, fire escapes, windshield wipers, and laser printers were all invented by women.

    Pearls melt in vinegar.

    Honey is the only food that doesn't spoil.

    A rat can last longer without water than a camel.

    40% of McDonald's profits come from the sales of Happy Meals.

    Einstein couldn't speak fluently when he was nine. His parents thought he might be retarded.

    A 'jiffy' is an actual unit of time: 1/100th of a second.

    Months that begin on a Sunday will always have a "Friday the 13th."

    Mel Blanc (the voice of Bugs Bunny) was allergic to carrots.

    Clans of long ago that wanted to get rid of their unwanted people without killing them used to burn their houses down - hence the expression "to get fired."

    You can tell from the statue of a mounted horseman how the rider died. If all four of the horse's feet are on the ground, he died of natural causes. One foot raised means he died from wounds suffered in battle. Two legs raised means he died in action.

    ... and if three of the horses legs are off the ground then the horse used to work in a circus. If all four are off the ground then the rider was an illusionist.
