Below is a list of random facts I have discovered or been told – I will add to this as new ones come to my attention – any contributions to the list will be most welcome.
Note: some of these may only be applicable in the UK

Disclaimer: I cannot confirm the validity of all of the above facts, they are just those I have gleaned over time from various sources and people and found them interesting, amusing or just plain weird.
