Thats not correct.

 

Vehicles drive left in India and Sri Lanka as well. So i reckon its law for vehicles to keep left in all british colonies.

Did you know your nails carry on growing after you die. :blink:

That is again an incorrect fact.

 

 

When you die all your tissues die. Your body shrinks because it loses water, your nails (or hair for that fact) have no water in them and hence dont shrink. Thus, it appears that they have grown. But they have not, they have remained the same, it is your fingers which have shrunk.

 

I studied that in school, 7-8 years ago. :D

The female hyena has a larger penis than the male, it can become errect but she cannot ejaculate, this is a defence system against other male hyena's from outside of the pack.

New research by the University of Wallamalloo department of logical positivism has shown conclusively that left-handed Liverpool fans from Mumbai who go by a name beginning with an X are not only likely to live for a shorter length of time than their peers but also have, on average, a thirty-seven percent smaller penis. It's true I tell ya!!! :lol:

This thread has served to underline a few facts.....

 

1) Evertonians are generally intelligent.

 

2) Evertonians have taste in supporting Everton.

 

3) You b*astards know some astoundingly trivial stuff.

Off topic a tad but while drinking in the sun with the little bro' and his mates the other day two of them got into a completely random contest of naming types of bird. Strange you may think but one goes hunting and travels all over the world with his property developer dad so he has an excuse, the other just took up the challenge.

 

A full case of stella bottles and part way into a case of corona later and me and my bro decided enough was enough and made them stop with some "gentle persuasion".

 

Now that is most definatly a mind of usless information unless your Bill Oddie. :huh:
