Uninteresting Trivial Facts


Recommended Posts

Hastings Borough Council told the 20k+ motorbikes who make the annual mayday bike run here, to stay away, because of Covid.

Thankfully many of them obeyed. However, there are plenty who disobeyed. 

Lovely sounds.

My 10,000th really freaked people, because no-one had thought about it before.

One of my Jamaican mates invited me to his 10,000th birthday, which fell on a Friday. I didn't get home until 0345 on the Monday.

If you are baking and run out of eggs, blood can be substituted at a ratio of 65g blood / 1 egg

 

65g! That's almost an armful!

One of the complaints about e-scooters, is they are fast, and quiet, therefore undetectable to blind people.

But so are bikes, e-bikes, and electric motorbikes & cars, but the politicians are saying they are the future. 

I nearly got hit by an e-taxi last weekend because I looked the wrong way, at the wrong time. She just drove on. If I had been hit, The Sun & Mail would've be requiring a ban on 60 year old walking alone.

why when you ask someone for eg - how old were you in 1989 ? or how old were you in 1995? they immediately answer with something like "i was 14" or "i was 22" - correct me if i am wrong but unless they were born on jan 1st they were 2 ages in any given year you might ask!

did the bloke who invented the phrase "one hit wonder" invent anything else?

If you ask me how old I was in the year 2000 I would answer 52. But you are not wrong as I was born on 1 January.

On every other day of the year I can truthfully say " I am not x until next year".   On the other hand I cannot say "I will be  x this year".

I went to an old lady one day and she was having a 21st birthday party that very day. It was Feb 29 and she looked more like 84 than 21!
