Full fat Milk is a low fat drink.

People who drink full (whole) milk have a 46% less chance of diabetes than people who drink low fat/skimmed milk.

1. That in common law countries (former British Empire), a lot of law is based on and developed by precedents decided before hand, as many already know. In civil law countries (the remainder, Europe) they legislate every possible situation before it can happen.

2. Some sections of the Magna Carta is still in effect in Ireland.

Early Irish laws are interesting. No fault divorce. A man could beat his wife, but if he left a mark she was entitled to compensation. The highest rank of poet had the same status as bishops and kings.

My favourite is one that describes how a king spends his week:

Quote:
Sunday is for drinking ale, Monday is for judging, Tuesday is for playing fidchell, Wednesday is for watching hounds hunt, Thursday is for sexual union, Friday is for racing horses, and Saturday is for judging (a different word from Monday, but the distinction is unclear).
Much better than Craig David!

You cut a little square from the teabag paper, you use a tiny little piece of nail glue to stick it like a bandaid over the broken part of the nail, and you use a gentle file/buffer over it to blend it into the natural nail. Paint over it with a coat of two of base coat/top coat/colour

what do you know that we have never heard of?

Eg: you don't need to be great at maths to be an architect

this is obvious to me but everyone says to me "i wanted to be an architect but i was bad at math,i can barely add"
I have heard people use that excuse because they can't do Sudoku

The earliest sunset is about December 12th not the 21st. There's a stretch in evenings by the 21st.

John F. Kennedy was dating Miss Denmark in the 1940's, and when they stayed at Summer House in Charleston the FBI bugged their room because they thought she may be a Nazi spy. Turns out they didn't hear a lot of conversation, but instead a lot of NSFW time. Tapes are in the Library of Congress

Wolves and bears were all killed off.

Rabbits aren't native here.
