Totally useless information/trivia

Rev, my post above agrees. The answer has to be 6pts with all draws from a 4 team mini-league at the bottom.

and by extension if you didn't want to rely on goal difference you could draw with a 5th team to give you 7pts leaving the other 3 on 6pts :thumb:

If you're a UNIX user and you use the 'cal' command, do a 'cal 9 1752' and see how many days there were in September 1752 :thumb: Start of the Gregorian calendar.

Here is a humourous alternative explanation.

Well, every wound is colonised with bacteria, but usually the body's defence mechanism copes perfectly well in keeping it at bay; it's only when your immune system starts to lose the battle that 'colonised' becomes 'infected', so as long as you're relatively fit you should be fine. That said, you should always clean the wound with saline first. Just think of the cling film as an artificial scab - it just does the job better...

Dennis the Menace (UK) and Dennis the Menace (USA) are almost exactly the same age.

They were both published for the first time in the very same week in March 1951. The Atlantic was a lot wider then and neither Dennis knew about the other, so it was entirely coincidental.

You can not eat 38 bananas in a 24 hour period. You're body begins to reject them at around 32 and if you force yourself the full 38 you risk dying of potassium overdose.

Its probably a bit unfair to dismiss this as "trivia" but i guess at the end of the day, it is.

Interest rates in Zimbabwe are currently at 1'200% per day (reserve bank of Zimbabwe), inflation was a rather scary 66'212.3% for December 07 (BBC) and the central bank have just this week issued a $10'000'000 (thats ten million) dollar bill which isnt even enough to buy a burger and chips from the cafe, as that will cost you a cool $15m at the moment.

Well it seems the black Hitler is doing things the wrong way round... Germany had the hyper inflation before the murdering.
