This doesn't have the same nihilistic bent as the grim facts thread but it's worth doing too.

The probability in the Infinite Room of Monkeys thought experiment is 1 to a 17.2 megabyte number (to 9 million significant figures). This is like the fable of Ali Baba and the 40 thieves where Ali Baba is so rich his wife doesn't count his money, she measures it like grain.

Per my previous signiature, 163 million cups of tea are drunk in Britain every day. I consider my five a day a divine and patriotic duty as well as a pleasure.

True, but we sadly don't have a "Furious Masturbation" forum.

Brainwave: we should have a "Furious Masturbation" forum.

In the supermarket you have class one, two or class three eggs and some are more expensive than others and some give you better omelettes. So when the class one eggs are in Waitrose and you cannot go there, you have a problem.

The acronym for the association of british plastic surgeons is BAAPS (British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons).

That's very fitting.

The soundtrack which plays during the last 45 minutes of Inception is Edith Piaf - non je ne regrette rien slowed down many, many times. Which also makes perfect sense for the events of the movie.

Coca-Cola is the single most popular drink in every nation and state in the world. Except one.

Scotland. Irn-Bru tops Coca-Cola here.
