Jon has been manfully posting his series of ’10 things we didn’t know last week’ for the past year. In tribute to such a heroic effort, I thought I might pick out my favourite five quirky facts from this enormous list of quirkology:
- Antony and Cleopatra were ugly.
- More than half (52%) of smokers haven’t told their parents about their habit.
- There are 30,000 wild parakeets in London.
- Kryptonite exists.
- There have been at least two children given the name "Superman" in the UK since 1984.
