    Did you know there are more air planes under the sea than submarine in the sky! Do you know any facts that are as interesting as that?

    Women have smaller feet than men so they can get nearer the kitchen sink

    A serious response to that is that many people attacked by sharks had just pissed in the water. Urine seems to attract shark's interest! To make it worse, they were raising sea levels as well!

    Blackthorn Cider used to be good too.

    Remember going on a fishing trip with 18-30's in newquay once and we had fuck all bites for ages, then, we started cracking open the blackthorn and taking a piss off the side of the boat when needed.

    After a few pisses the bites were rolling in. Bloody alcoholics those fish.

    I'm closer to the sea than space when I'm at work, but at home the reverse is true.

    The combined IQ of all the microbial life forms that live in a glass of water is approximately equal to 5

    Nobody knows the combined IQ of the microbial life forms in a glass of whisky because the microbes are too pissed to answer the questions
