Is that the 19th century US admiral instrumental in opening trade links with Japan, rather than Chandler Bing?

I've always thought it would be good if Matthew Perry starred in Pacific Overtures.

Could someone be more in a tree?

Deer go to birds nests and eat the chicks so they can get extra calcium to grow a new set of antlers.

I've seen several websites saying you should feed birds eggshells so they can lay more eggs (see here or here), surely they would be more nutritious than eating chicks which are mostly feathers? But if you spend your life eating bark, a baby bird is probably their equivalent of a Creme Egg.

Dunno if this should be an 0bv10u5 Thing, but I just discovered that the inventor of what I presumed was called the Great Head Shield (device for tunnel digging) was a bloke called Greathead.

The Greathead Shield was a modified version of a shield designed by someone called Barlow, which was a smaller version of the one designed by one of the Brunels.

What you presume is called the Barlow shield is actually called the Bar Low shield, because it was designed for tunnelling at a reasonably shallow depth.

Actually I think you'll find it's for tunnelling at the depths to which Gary Barlow's career has sunk.

Horseflies were around 70 million years before horses.

I've just found out that Jeremy Vine and Tim Vine are brothers.

Christmas dinners growing up must have been a fucking nightmare, Jeremy quizzing his mother aggressively about how crispy the roast potatoes are, whilst Tims reading out the cracker jokes.

The "See my vest, see my vest made of real gorilla chest" song that Mr Burns sings in the Simpsons isn't an original composition but is actually based on a song from Disney's Beauty and the Beast.

Ah yes, fuck the pain away by Angela Lansbury.
