Just the Facts: No Particular Reason 1

Welcome to this week’s edition of Just the Facts where I am your guide bringing you little known snippets of information that you can delight family, friends and colleagues with.

Once again, to convince you of my credentials as a reliable source of facts, I remind you that I am on the internet, a place where facts are as common as statistics and therefore 110% accurate.


As per usual there are seven core facts, owing to the one a day frequency of needing an apple to keep the doctors away.

  • Archetype is a printing font made entirely of upside down u’s
  • Memory foam mattresses get very uncomfortable talking about dementia
  • Until it was made illegal in 1182, due to the rising number of broken arms, Princesses kissed swans not frogs
  • Camera Obscura is the latin name for a lens cap
  • A porcupine got its name because when it was roasted over pine it tasted just like pork. It also came with toothpicks
  • In America, if you turn on the tap you’ve probably really excited a dancer
  • In Great Britain, if you turn on a faucet everyone will think you forced it

Come back next week to learn more interesting facts, there’s bound to be something you didn’t know already.
