10 Useless Things

A mixture of facts I have come across, and conclusions I have come to, over the last month:

1. The Tayto crisp was the first crisp in the world to be seasoned (with something other than salt).

2. Peanut Butter does not actually contain butter.

3. Audrey Hepbrun died in 1993.

4. I will never be able to fully fathom why I was so obsessed with 5ive. I guess being 12 had something to do with it.

5. The Apprentice was originally aired in the US in 2004, with Donald Trump, and not in the UK with Alan Sugar (as I mistakenly assumed and incorrectly informed other people of).

6. Hare Krishnas, broadly speaking, have their origins in Hinduism.

7. Floyd Rose tremolos are more hassle than they're worth!!

8. The lethal dose of caffeine equates to drinking around 80-100 cups of coffee (depending on body mass) in a short space of time.

9. I will always suck at Mario Kart.

10. One will always have far too many staples than one could use in a lifetime.


  1. Uhh, I think you'll find there is still every reason to be obsessed with 5ive. They are my guilty secret, but it's so good! Do not be ashamed. Also, I rock at Mario Kart.

  2. You always have to many stapled until you need to hand an essay in and can't find any in the whole entire world.

    the lethal dose may be 80-100 cups but if you drink 15 or more your at serious risk of getting the shakes and the sweats. 5ive are good with the exception of we will rock you, which is just blasphemy
