I'm not kidding, Earth is mostly mantle and the mantle is technically rock but it's basically green fudge.


  

I suppose that makes the core molten lava chocolate cake.

Why yes that is a picture of Paul dabbing. Deal with it.

Considering how awful green gold was, I don’t fancy tasting green fudge. 

 

Paul’s lack of appearance in the video for ‘When We Was Fab’ was because he was working on the ‘Tropical Island Hum’ cartoon. Another example of great 80’s decision making by Paul.

Shows that you can always trust Ringo but Paul is a little iffy on that.

A first edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is worth a feck load of money!!!! A copy from the first run of 500 copies, sold by a library 20 years ago for £1, sold for £28,500 today.

I was wondering when the first film may have been released in the UK, and it was November 2001. I can't recall if Pottermania was particularly feverent in 1999, but you can't help but think if the library had held onto the book for a couple more years, they'd have been able to sell it for more than £1.

Unfortunate timing, indeed.

Although the London bridge used to be where you'd expect it, it's been in Arizona since 1971.

Here's a more interesting one i learned last night:

The "medium" gauge for acoustic guitar is 13-56, that's a lot of tension.

I have a first edition of Goblet of Fire, guess how much it's worth?

 

About £6- hell yes.

 

I also have firsts for 5-7 but they aren't worth the paper they're printed on.

 

Potter stuff I do have that is worth some quid are 4 limited edition 3D cups that were released to promote the Chamber of Secrets that I got at a local supermarket- I think most people threw them out as they're worth about £15 each now. I ALMOST have a complete set, am missing Harry and Malfoy flying. I have a few other bits and bobs that are  probably worth about £100-£150 all together but the cups are the most valuable.

(I have 2 of the 'Hogwarts staff' ones).

 

 

Today I learned:

Ethiopia is considered by some scholars to be the only African country never colonised. Italy occupied it from 1936-1941 but they never colonised it.
