    More people are killed each year by vending machines than sharks

    This is only because the sharks are angry, as their packet of NikNaks got ‘hungup’ and without forearms they find rocking the machine to release them difficult………

    If you analyse natural numbers e.g. numbers you come across while reading newspapers or websites, or even tables in engineering handbooks 31% will start with 1, 18% start with 2 and only 5% start with 9.

    The worlds population can fit on the isle of white.

    Not since the end of the 1970’s, when it got bigger than 4 billion, it can’t.

    When people lose find something 100% it’s in the last place they look.

    When people lose find something 100% it’s in the last place they look.

    Of course it is, why would you continue looking for something when you have found it?

    100% of 650b wheeled bikes make the trail come alive.

    We all knew that of course but what you may not know is that:

    74% of 29r bikes act as a medium for the reincarnation of old woodland singletrack AND
    97.7% of statistics on the internet relating to the wheel size debate are totally made up.

    100% of threads on STW contain at least one post that misses the point completely.
    Don’t they alibongo001?

    More than ten times as many people have been killed at a Formula 1 race than have won the World Championship.
    .
    Tim Henman and Andy Murray combined have only won one more Wimbledon title than I have.
    .

    Canada is approximately 42 times bigger than the UK but only has half the population.

    I’m fairly sure NASA got rid of some of it.

    According to The Boffin on R2 homework last week, they could still fit on the Shetland’s.

    IS that because it’s colder in the Shetlands and things shrink when they get cold?
