This Week… Internet… Strawberries… Flattery….bladders


Owain Sgiv, an officer for the Welsh language campaign group Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg, explained:"The temporary sign, placed in front of the roadworks at Barons Court roundabout between Penarth and Cardiff, correctly says 'cyclists dismount' in English, but says 'llid y bledren dymchwelyd' in Welsh. 'Roughly translated, it means bladder disease has returned." Owain Sgiv, an officer for the Welsh language campaign group Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg, explained.

What a story.

Some other crackers in this gallery here too.

"What a beautiful name Ransom note."

"Ransom note, you are fabulous."

"You are smart, intelligent and beautiful Ransom note."

"Ransom note, you are one of the most talented people we know."

"Ransom note, lots of people love you."

"Ransom note, we enjoy working with you."

Need some flattery when no-one else will? We just discovered this: automatic flatterer. Well, at least someone loves us.

The Internet weighs as much as a single strawberry


Vice click-bait but good click-bait nonetheless


25 Unbelievable Facts That Sound Wrong But Are 100% True…

"Humans are half banana and a single sheet of paper can reach the moon. It sounds crazy, but these facts are 100% true."

The human eye is so sensitive that, if the Earth were flat, you could spot a candle in the dark from 20 miles away

The farthest object visible with the naked eye is the Andromeda galaxy, located 2.6 million light years from Earth, –

If you removed all the empty space from between and within every atom making up all humans, you could fit the entire human race into the volume of a sugar cube.
The human race (or the atoms that make us) are 99.9999999999999% empty space. In theory, if you removed all that empty space, humanity could fit into the volume of a sugarcube. –

Alaska is the northernmost, westernmost, and easternmost U.S. state.

Yes, you read correctly – Alaska is both the most Eastern and Western state. Alaska’s Aleutian Islands cross from the Western Hemisphere into the Eastern Hemisphere. –

Chances are, a pack of cards have never randomly been shuffled into the same order.

If every star in our galaxy had a trillion planets, each with a trillion people living on them, and each of these people has a trillion packs of cards and somehow they manage to make unique shuffles 1,000 times per second, and they’d been doing that since the Big Bang, they’d only just now be starting to repeat shuffles. –

One out of every 200 people alive today is a descendant of Genghis Khan 

As the ruler of one of the largest Empires in history, Genghis Khan made a serious effort to pass on his genes. –

If a nickel were as big as the Earth, an atom would be the size of a nickel.

Atoms make up everything are mind-bogglingly small. In fact, if you had an atom of gold for every second that has passed since the big bang, your piece of gold would now weigh just 0.14 milligrams and be worth a few cents. –

1 out of 10 photographs ever taken in human history were taken in the past 12 months

It’s estimated that in 2014, humans will take 880 billion photos – mostly selfies. –

Your blood vessels are long enough to circumnavigate Earth over 12 times.

Inside the average human body are 100,000 miles of blood vessels, enough to travel around the 7,900 mile diameter of the Earth. –

There are more stars in our universe than grains of sand on all our beaches.

There are around 10 sextillion stars in the universe – that’s a 1 followed by 22 zeros. On all our beaches, there’s estimated to be around 5 sextillion grains of sand. –

Antarctica is the world’s largest desert

It may not seem like a desert, but Antarctica receives less than two inches of precipitation annually. The Sahara can receive up to 4 inches per year. –

A line of rubik’s cubes in every possible combination could reach the sun over 17 million times

If you had one rubik’s cube for every possible permutation of the cube, and laid them out end to end it would stretch out for 261 light years. For perspective, the sun is 8 light minutes away and the closest star, Proxima Centauri, is four light years from Earth. –

If you could fold a piece of paper 42 times, it would be thick enough to reach the moon

Whenever you fold a piece of paper, it’s thickness grows exponentially. By the time you fold a piece of paper 20 times, it would be 6 miles high, taller than Mount Everest. That means that 42 folds would be enough to make it the 239,000 kilometers to the moon. The most we’ve ever managed is around 13. –

There are more nerve connections in your brain than there are stars in the galaxy.

The number of synapses in an average human brain is in the trillions, around 0.15 quadrillion to be exact. With 100 billion stars in the Milky Way, it isn’t even a fair fight. –

If you have 57 people in a room, there’s a 99% probability that at least two of them share a birthday.

There’s a rainforest in your belly button

Living inside the tiny hole outside your stomach is an ecosystem the size of a rainforest. From exploring 60 belly buttons, researchers found 2,368 bacterial species, 1,458 of which may be new to science

The world’s entire population of ants weighs the same as the entire population of humans.

Ants outnumber humans one million to one, making up for their small size


And like that…. he's gone!
