No number from one to one hundred includes the letter A

Mosquito’s don’t like Electronic Dance Music – if you wish to keep them away … guess what you need to do?

When is a pitch black room not a pitch black room? When it is eigengrau!

Pogonophobia is the fear of beards!! Run!

Why exercise? Just play on the toilet!! The average adult spends more time on the toilet than they do exercising … mm, makes me think of The Super Bowl – now l get it!

  1. … and as soon as I read the first fact I scanned the numbers in my head to sed if it were true πŸ˜‚

    1. One hundred ‘and’ One is where it would start to unfold Ami – hope you are keeping well πŸ™‚

      It’s the ‘and’ that breaks everything.

        1. It could be, and in many countries it is … but in the UK we tend to say and learn as youngsters 101 as one hundred and one πŸ™‚

          I was raised in Australia and even there they tended to say one hundred and one and yet in Malaysia, l remember clearly being taught it as one hundred plus one πŸ™‚

          1. I say one hundred and one, I was just trying to think of an alternative, you learn something new every day! πŸ™‚

  2. Man. I just read another “did you know” post from one of your fellow countrymen. Tell me true: Is it ‘did you know” day in the U.K.? “Cos I’m confused! πŸ˜† (good factoids for my trivia ‘library’.) Thanks Rory! πŸ˜€

  3. Next time I’m in an area with mosquitoes I’m gonna try the dance music. Those blood suckers LOVE me. I have scars from bites. Luckily we dont have many here.

    Eigengrau doesn’t scare me and neither do beards.

    I had an algebra teacher who said the ‘and’ was the decimal point, so one hundred and one would be 100.1, not 101, one hundred one.

    1. Interesting, but it comes down to how we were taught as l explained to Ami in the UK the ‘and’ was always mentioned, as was Australia and yet in Malaysia it was worded as plus so now we have the and representing correctly the . as an and …. intriguing πŸ™‚

  4. I started going over the numbers in my head too πŸ˜„.
    I think pogonophobia should be fear of pogo sticks, but beards it is 😝
    I’m totally going to try the dance music on the mosquitos. That would be a great science fair project around here for the middle schoolers. πŸ™ƒ
    Thank you 😊

    1. Oh goodness Tex, are you saying you have a fear of pogo sticks or even bearded pogo sticks … ?
