Bats always turn left when exiting a cave.
What about Batfink? does he count?
I did have a moment of reflection before clicking on post reply about what sort of person it makes me typing out a sentence like that.
Fact-o-rama needs more people who value accuracy over popularity.
I've been using pedantry to pull chicks for years. My 'money move' is correctly pointing out when 'whom' should have been used instead of 'who' in a sentence. The more people listening at the time the hotter she'll think you are. I then follow it up with the coup de grace: a trademark yawn/arm around shoulder special. Game ov-er.
You're my hero.
what about if they're in Australia though
on average, a yemeni wedding feast lasts 21 days.
They must resort to eating each other half way through. Survival of the fattest kind of thing.
Ace. McKeith would probably pass out at the site of all that on the table. The wrinkly old fucknut.
It'd be amazing. Imagine, though, if you were a Yemeni bloke who'd married some svelte little six-stone beauty, only for her to be the size of a house by the time the reception was over. Wouldn't you be a little miffed?
They all secretly like the larger lady, but the people of Yemen are by nature quite small. The answer? Marry her small, then force feed her until she's twice her normal size!
21 days (and 21 stone) later.
that during the 27 years he was in power Chairman Mao didn't once clean his teeth or have a bath or shower?
I think I did know that, but I'm impressed that you posted it as a rhyming couplet. Didn't he also sleep with virgins as a 'cure' for venereal disease?
that Lucy (http://drownedinsound.com/user/view/39918) won a prize last night for being the best-dressed person at Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, in the face of some fearsome competition.
that will be worth around 14p this time next year.
but it's the thought that counts.
a bottle of wine playing bingo. Beat that.
Shame it wasn't a Fields gig.
because of their centre of gravity, if they attempt to go down hill they just tumble over and do roley-poleys all the way down.
and, in fact, they have to.
I think I'd quite enjoy rolling down hills.
do you think it would be more fun for a rabbit?
I'm not sure. It's very fun when humans do t. I'm going to find a hill to roll down this weekend.
you can push me down in return.
now, as ever, i have forgotten the fact i prepared for today.
comes from a rancher called Sam Maverick who didn't brand his cattle.
The queen launched the royal yacht Britannia.
the battle of Culloden in 1746, the last battle to be fought on the British mainland. And on April 16 1943, Dr. Albert Hofmann discovered the psychedelic effects of LSD, for which relief much thanks.
in 2001, goals from Bontcho Guentchev and Dale Binns guided Hendon to a routine 2-0 win over Hampton and Richmond Borough. Hendon's side that day contained 3 full internationals (Guentchev, Otis Roberts (Grenada) and David Adekola (Nigeria)) as well as an England Non League international (Phil Gridelet).
That's what his Wikipedia page says, anyway.
he scored for us in our Middx Senior Cup Semi Final defeat against Hayes and has made 1 start plus 9 sub appearances this season. Absolutely no pace, but still excellent on the ball.
and Luton and CSKA Sofia and he played in the same Sporting Lisbon side as Luis Figo.
where Guentchev sneaks one in off the post as we win 4-2. I still remember the commentary:
'and its sneaked in off the post, and its Guentchev I think who is claiming it. Ipswich back in with a shout.'
more mulleted days?
Hendon's record attendance is 9,000 for the visit of Northampton Town in the 1st round of the 1952/3 FA Cup. The best attendance in recent years was some way short of that figure, 2,427 in November 1997 for the visit of Leyton Orient in the 1st round of the FA Cup which was drawn 2-2. A couple of Gaelic Football matches played at Claremont Road have pulled in 4,000+ crowds - a mere pipe dream for the football club.

LOL. If that's not fact-o-rama worthy, what is?
I've gone off him now.
