The average person has between 10-15 bacteria living on them or in them for each human cell.

Second hand car prices (well Fords anyway), and how to work out how long they've been for sale.

When the price ends in a 9 e.g. £6,999, the car has been for sale on the forecourt less than a week. £6,998 - week 2, £6,997 - week 3, etc etc. That's what a Ford dealer told me anyway. Could be complete carp, but I like it lol.

The story about a Dutch boy sticking his finger in the dyke to stop the country flowing is actually a American story.
The Dutch didn’t know about the excistense until after WW2

Big part of Holland are below sea level sometimes as much as 18 mtr.

Dutch flower bulb producers grow them in Scotland so that they Flower later.

The word SWIMS reads the same when rotated upside down

The name Wendy was made up for the book Peter Pan. There were no records of anyone named Wendy before the book was published.
