I love facts and little bits of trivia, I also really love going to quiz nights if I can get a night off here and there. I only wish I had one of those whizzy minds that can retain all of the information I read or pick up. Some people have amazing brains that can just recall stuff so easily. I still put it down to mummy brain which is a huge cop-out as my youngest, little G is now 7!! So, without having to wait any further, here are 10 fun facts that I have put together from the millions out there. Fun is the word here so I don’t think we’ll be mastermind finalists at the end but hopefully there will be a smile or an “oh!” here and there:)
Number 1: The word ‘crisp’ starts at the back of your mouth and ends at the front… yep I can guess you’re trying it now..cool eh?
Number 2: In ancient egypt women were know to use ‘birthing bricks’ which they would squat on while in their final stages of labour.
Number 3: Adult feet have 250,000 sweat glands and can produce around half a pint of sweat a day. Eek!
Number 4: A sneeze travels at about 100 miles per hour.
Number 5: An Australian man put up New Zealand for sale on eBay in 2006. The bid had reached $3000 before it was taken down due to a violation of eBay’s policy.

Number 9: If you put your finger in your ear and scratch, it sounds just like Pac-Man.
