 Correction on my post - that is in a persons life time and it is very true. Whether people believe it is another story, but while you are sleeping there are bugs that will crawl all over you. I personally have waken up to flies, spiders, ants, etc crawling on me. Honestly it wouldn't surprise me if I swallow more than 8 spiders in my life time, well before I started having to wear a CPAP mask.

Now I'm kinda wondering what a spider would taste like. Hopefully chicken or something edible that tastes good.

 The trick is too fry them until the legs are hard and stiff, because then the won't be as runny. Salt and oil is needed, because otherwise the spider would be too bland, although it does slightly taste like chicken or cod. With the frying, you get a nice crispy outside, with a soft, almost chewy center. The legs are rather stringy, since they don't have a lot of meat in them. The head and body have a delicate, white meat, while the abdomen is a brown paste of organs, eggs, and possibly excrement.

Yeah, Wikipedia is full of weird shit like this. 
So's Youtube.

The reason cats "play" with the water in their water dish is because they cannot see the water, so they are testing to see if there is water in it and how much. Sometimes they put cat food in the water dish for the same reason.

Heres a story to consider when you buy bananas :P

Mark Drinkwater, 42, was left shaken after his encounter with the spider – which he claims was the size of a man's hand.

Staff were called to the fruit counter and they launched a search for it.

Mark, from Sydenham, south-east London, said : "I went into the store and picked up a few items. Then I went to the fruit and vegetable area and picked up some bananas.

"I started to pick them apart and then I realised there was a tarantula hanging from the side of the bananas.

"It was the size of the palm of my hand. It was hairy. It was scary enough. I shook the banana and the tarantula fell back into the box.

 Haha, I remember you saying that the other day :P

I've got a few which I remember from past QI's and general 'weird' conversations XD


  • The cigarette lighter was invented before the match.

  • TYPEWRITER is the longest word you can write on one line of a QWERTY keyboard.

  • The longest recorded flight of a chicken is 13 seconds

  • A 'quack' from a duck NEVER echoes and scientists have absolutely no idea why...

  • The plastic bits on the end of your shoelaces are called aglets.
