    The most simple chinese character has just one stroke; the most complex 64, 36, 48, 57, or 84 (depends on what you allow as 'most complex').

    that woulds mean an average of 2.4 hours in line every day for the whole of the 50years!

    edit-I suppose if that included traffic lines that would make sense.

    The most dangerous animal in the world is the common housefly. Because of their habits of visiting animal waste, they transmit more diseases than any other animal.

    Forty is the only number which has its letters in alphabetical order. One is the only number with its letters in reverse alphabetical order.

    Four is the only number whose number of letters in the name equals the number.

    The body of a human child contains nearly 300 bones. The body of a human adult contains only about 210 because the bones fuse as you grow.

    Honorary U.S. citizenship has been conferred only four times--to British wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill; Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, who saved at least 20,000 Jews from the Nazis; Pennsylvania founder William Penn and his wife, Hannah; and to Mother Teresa for her work around the world caring for the sick and destitute.

    The actual fact is that Iceland don't have to import Bananas (which i'll mention again, are a berry from a herb) since they can grow all their own!

    From which we can conclude that 4.5 billion years ago it would've been 635 000km above the surface of the Earth! Since that's silly the Earth obviously has to be much younger. :P

    Anywho, There's a species of squid that can 'fly' through the air for 50 yards, they also leap 6 feet out of the water and can achieve speeds of up to 45 mph. I can just picture some early sailor standing on deck when all of a sudden a squid bullet flies alongside his boat and off into the distance...

    Inglind is moving away from Europe at 20cm per year. Is the channel tunnel built like a concertina?

    Are you sure that's right? 20cm is an awfully fast pace for continental drift. Africa and South America are only moving apart at the rate of 3 cm/year.

    There's no question that Iceland grows its own bananas. I think the real issue is whether it exports many of them. From what I can tell, bananas are not one of the countries major exports.

    It is still cool that they can grow bananas - I didn't know that.
