    Hold on. Are we talking about the type where your arms keep you attached to the zip line, or the type where you're harnessed into the thing. If it's the latter, turning yourself upside down is easy and painless. I've never tried to invert myself on the former.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Today I learned (via Reddit) that the smell of fresh cut grass is actually a plant distress call.

    :/

    @Rusty_M Without the harness, and as I'm about as flexible as a stick of chalk I had to be lifted into place by the lads. I have to recommend it, just make sure the end of the rig has plenty of clearance infront of it.

    What? Surely for a distress call to work, other individuals (usually of the same species, but not necessarily) need to take action. I've never seen a flotilla of grasshoppers chasing after a lawnmower.

    No-one said it was a particularly effective distress call.

    :D

    It probably acts in a similar manner to some plants, which are able to communicate and increase the amount of tannin and other toxins in their leaves when grazed upon.

    Today i have learned that I still get the occasional hangover and that an occupational hazard of working in a pub is increased alcohol consumption at the end of a shift; with 12-3 shifts on a Friday generally leading to a few afternoon draught San Miguel's

    The joys of English, since you do use the t when for example you turn burn into an adjective, but I'd agree that with learn the ed form is used.

    TIL; this type of shit is best left to the mindless circle jerk that is reddit.

    This is probably the right place for this (despite Dirtbox's post shield above).

    You know that CE stamp that you see on loads of goods that you assume is some kind of quality stamp? The reason you think that is because there is a CE (Conformité Européenne) quality mark. However if you scroll down the wiki page a bit you will find that there is also a nearly identical CE stamp which stands for China Export. This is the one that you usually see all all kinds of junk.


    In other (slightly more interesting*) news, Lego are the worlds largest tire manufacturer with 381 million units in 2011.



    *or perhaps not

    In slightly less well known news, bears are sometimes known to defecate in forested areas.

    Someone at work sent a bunch of screencaps of people saying that on Facebook (the Titanic thing) and it got me to thinking about how I first heard about it. Damned if I can remember - it's one of those things that feels like I've /always/ known, but I can't remember how the information got into my head.

    Which made me wonder why I expect kids today to automatically know about it - who's in charge of Titanic teaching?
