    ..and posting twice isn’t because I’m useless at this, it’s just emphasizing my rightness and your wrongness

    you are about 100g heavier at night than at midday“.

    Curious Orange… I’m going to have to dig out the calculator for this tomorrow but I can’t see how it could be true.

    I reckon it’s true – I always feel a bit heavier at night.

    I’m surprised it’s only 100g though.

    To curious orange:

    Sir, I owe you a grovelling apology. I’ve just done the maths and assuming that for a person weighing 100kg, they appear to weigh 125g less at midnight than at midday. It’s a bit quick and dirty but I simply calculated the force due to gravity from the sun and doubled it.

    Eee, I’m right pleased I worked that out. 🙂

    You can’t eat a gravy ring without liking your lips. FACTOID.

    Cats can get decked by birds.
    Nearly got taken off my bike last night by 3 young blackbirds chasing down a cat. They were making a really odd, menacing chirping noise too. Still, that’ll teach the cat to try and eat the birds.

    I don’t like my lips, yet I had gravy last night.

    apple pips contain cyanide.
    Blue mascara contains cyanide.
    Telurium is used for the writing on light bulbs.
    Rhubarb contains oxalic acid which is deadly poisonous, which why it needs to be boiled before consumption.
    Lillies are deadly poisonous to cats (as is asprin).
    Chocolate is deadly poisonous to dogs (baking chocolate being the worse).
    Giving half a lemon to a horse is piss funny.
    Giving half a lemon to the elephant at lisbon zoo certainly is not.

    Not ending my original post with fact may have given me the edge there – FACT

    Maybe – DISTINCT POSSIBILITY

    Anyway, according to Plutarch, by the time he was 20 Mark Anthony (of Friends, Romans, Countrymen fame) had partied his way into 250 tallents of debt – about £5million in today’s terms. Impressive.

    Saccades – It’s paracetamol that is deadly to cats as they lack the glucuronyl transferase enzyme required to break it down….
    Aspirin is just pretty bad for them as they cannot break it down as well so they accumulate it and then die eventually.
