Well, This week has been a very interesting week, I’ve learnt a lot of interesting things, so I thought I’d write a blog to share with the you most interesting things that I have learnt this week. 

The Most Interesting Things That I Have Learnt This Week:

* Well, I have an allergy to raspberries, which makes shopping for birthday cakes and jam filled products almost impossible, until this week, I didn’t know that the only supermarkets that sell products with Strawberry jam, are Waitrose and Marks & Spencer’s. Most companies choose raspberry jam as it’s cheaper so cuts costs.

* OJ Simpson was originally cast to play the role of Terminator, however, he was later dropped as people didn’t feel that he would portray a remorseless killer effectively. 

*Caterpillars completely liquefy before they turn into moths.

*Until 2011, Russians classified beer as a soft drink.

*Two-Thirds of people in the world have never seen snow.

*There are more vacant houses than homeless people in the USA.

*A jellyfish is 95% water.

*It would take over 1000 years to watch every single video on YouTube.

*A man named Charles Osborne has had the hiccups for 69 years.

* In the film Labyrinth, Alice Cooper was originally cast to play the Goblin King, however he then declined the role, so David Bowie was cast instead.

*A group of pugs is called a grumble.

*The number of words posted on twitter every day, would fill a 10 million page book. 

*Tommy Lee Jones & Al Gore were college room mates. 

*Elvis Presley got a C in his music course.

*An Ostriches eye is bigger than its brain (I must be part Ostrich then)

*Approximately 2500 left handed people die per year due to using equipment designed for right handed people.

I hope you found those facts as interesting as I did, however you probably won’t.
