    Women spend 16 months of their lives crying

    And other amazing facts - and in this case some of them really are pearlers - in new QI book;

    QI facts: women spend 16 months of their lives crying - Telegraph

    Some other peaches from the article;

    Each of us contains enough carbon to make 9000 pencils

    In Britain, spiders outnumber people 500000 to 1

    At any one time, 45 million people in the world are drunk

    Americans account for a third of the total weight of humanity

    60% of premier league footballers go bankrupt within 5 years of retirement

    40 million Chinese people live in Caves

    The first country to ban foie gras on grounds of cruelty was Nazi Germany

    HP Printer Ink is 20 times more expensive than ten year old Dom Perignon

    some of these are great but the yanks being 1/3 of the weight of humanity cant be right surely?

    314 million/7 billion people = about 4.5% of people weighing 33% of the total weight

    so the average septic is over 10 x the average weight of a rest of the worlder?

    no freekin way

    I think you are right, this seems bollocks. One otter variable though - although not as bad as Europe, America is pretty hold whereas most of the worlds population are nippers. Probably.

    Yeah, that 'fact' just seems impossible and kinda makes me question the validity of many of the other 'jaw-dropping facts'. Although I did know Charlie Manson, Stephen Stills and Glen Campbell had auditioned for the Monkees.

    CIA Factbook on average ages is interesting - https://www.cia.gov/library/publicat...elds/2177.html

    Read one on the bog this morning.


    The 2 second long piece of gibberish music found on the last groove of the 'Sgt Pepper's' album took 8 hours to record. That is over half the time it took The Beatles to record their entire debut LP.

    Bear in mind that circa 2 billion people are chinese or Indian, who are generally small and built like whippets and will skew the numbers towards the trend that the QI book highlights.
