We all know Birds custard is Brummie

The man also invented Baking Powder.

We alshave have the biggest urban park in Europe, which makes us one of the greenest cities in the world, as well as the youngest

The smallest park in the UK is in Burntwood.

Burntwood (Chasetown) also boasts the first church in the UK to have electricity.

It's amazing there aren't more tourists.
Our PE teacher @ St Phils, inherited Birds Custard and immediately sold it off to the company in Banbury who still make it, he promptly retired aged about 30!

Polar Bears are not naturally pink.

They are born white and turn pink due to all of the shrimp they eat.

The word 'gullible' is French in origin and has never been formally accepted into the English language due to a long forgotten enmity with the French people, therefore you will not find the word gullible in the Oxford English dictionary

Des you are the only person over 9 who doesn't know that fact. It was not an obscure fact. It was common knowledge.

In fairness most people have been told the original fact from the first post a dozen times.

Rev, the tower was always known simply as big ben till 2012 so this obscure fact wasnt actually a fact up untill then.

The number of dead that would equate to the current population was passed about the time of Christ (AD1)

So official history has got it wrong then Bluewurst?


The Elizabeth Tower is the name of the famous tower of Parliament - more popularly known as Big Ben. Although often referred to as Big Ben, this is actually the nickname of the bell housed within the Elizabeth Tower - and Big Ben's official name is the Great Bell.

Your actually wrong on both counts LOL

The Nepalese and Swiss flags are the only two flags not to be rectangular. The Swiss one is square.
A square is a rectangle, just a special type of rectangle.

The flag of the Vatican City State is also square.

The word ‘sabotage’ is french and originates from the industrial revolution period when disgruntled workers smashed machinery by kicking it with their boots - sabot.

Flamingos don't eat shrimp. They eat algae.

The only national flag that is taller than it is wide is Nepal's.

It’s the only national flag to have more then 4 sides (it looks like two triangles stacked).

The Nepalese and Swiss flags are the only two flags not to be rectangular. The Swiss one is square.

The Vatican's flag is also square

I understand blind chameleons change colour to match their surroundings.
