* Going on the number of boats alone, Disney has the 4th largest navy in the world

* Only one breed of frog goes ribbit and its native to California. The reason we think that frogs go ribbit is because Hollywood uses the same random frog sound effect for all movies.

I had loads more but I can't think of any at the minute. I learnt them all from watching QI!

They must all be true tho because Stephen Fry said them and he's the cleverest man in the world! (Well perhaps not quite, but he does know alot of random things!)

Very funny, I was crying with laughter at every episode. I think I heard that there was going to be another series at some point.

Oh yeah. And apparently a ducks quack doesn't echo.
I'm actually sad enought to know that this isn't true. There was an item on it on our local news once (I really hate local news productions), and they actually did an experiment with a duck in an echo chamber. It echoed. Sorry, a ducks quack does echo. It has been proven by science

you swallow about 10 spiders in your sleep during your life time.
Also, I know this isn't true. Snopes to the rescue!

It's been noted that the gender of a sea turtle is determined by the temperature of the sand during egg incubation. Warm temperatures (greater than 29° C) produce more females; cooler temperatures (less than 29° C) produce more males.

If a man ejaculates more than 35 metres under water, then his head will explode, due to pressure.

The kings in a deck of cards each represent a great king from history. The king of spades is King David, the king of clubs is Alexander the Great, the king of hearts is Charlemagne, and the king of diamonds is Julius Caesar.

Although Caesar was an Emperor

The most common name for a pub in Britain is The Red Lion.
