Uninteresting Trivial Facts


Recommended Posts


  • 2 weeks later...

I have two related facts (and I haven't read 353 pages to see if they have been mentioned before so apologies if they have).

Now, initially it may seem interesting but bear with me.

1. I learned recently the astounding fact that due to the explosion in population over the last several decades that there are more human beings alive today than have ever died... i.e. that the majority of the human population that ever lived is alive today. Incredible when you think about it.

2. I more recently learned that number 1 isn't true.

our beloved moderator John Drake is NOT the illegitimate love child of Charlie Drake and neither does he have webbed feet like a drake does 

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

What are you trying to say about the webbed feeters of the world? Are you disrespecting us? Are you making fun of us?! Farmduck! Farmduck! You know you're going the right way for a real pecking! You want that big guy?! Honk! Honk! 😁😂😉

Pre-saving has been invented.

I'm still trying avoid pre-ordering anything but today I learned you can pre-save. A YT video guy I watched has just released a new single and, even though it's not on Spotify yet, you can pre-save it there, presumably so that when it becomes available it will be added to your whatever. (Not a Spotify user so don't know what they call it. A rotation? A spotbag? A shopping trolley?)

Faith no more's album Angel Dust was released 30 years ago this month.

I remember queuing up in HMV to get my copy of their previous album signed, so now I feel rather old. For the record, most of the band looked like they really didn't want to be there - Mike Bordin was the only one who smiled at me as he applied his illegible squiggle to the LP cover, so I have a soft spot for his drumming.
