I'm a total geek and I love facts. I'm also now listening to a podcast by the QI Elves called 'No such thing as a fish' on the recommendation of Evil Homer - I'm so addicted.

So hit us with your facts!

Here's mine:

Did you know koala's have home trees? Like we have houses, and might go visit our friends, but we have our own homes? So do koalas! :koala:

Similar fact to mine! In Finland it's illegal to have outdoor cats if you live in an urban area. They have to be indoors or you have to restrict where they go outside e.g. fencing them in your garden or using a harness. Only in rural places like farms can you let them roam free.

The English 'juggernaut' (truck cab) dervies from the Sanskrit jagannātha, meaning 'lord of the world', in reference to its size and power (it is sometimes metaphorically rendered as 'unstoppable force').

Penguins also trade sex for pebbles if they need more for their nest and their partner is away.

Scorpion young stay on back on their mother to avoid being eaten and also at the same time they get a easy meal. As scropions are hardwired to eat anything in sight.
