Along the timeline of Earth's history, the existence of the Tyrannosaurus Rex is closer to the existence of man than it is to the existence of the Stegosaurus.

If read backwards, within the Talal Itani English translation of the Qu'ran there are 34 semordnilap's that feature in the Oxford dictionary.

These words can be arranged to form a rhyming limerick about delivering breast milk to spiders.

During the 1980-84 restoration of Sistine Chapel Lunettes, disillusioned restoration artist Piergiorgio Bonetti drew a small cartoon rat doing a line of coke on the tunic of biblical nobleman Jotham.

It was not discovered until 1993 when another restorative survey was completed. Bonetti died during the interim period so never faced any backlash for his slur. The offending cartoon was shortly removed.

In the summer of 2016, former Premier League footballer Lee Carsley discovered he was one third of a set of triplets who were separated at birth as part of a psychiatric twin study.

Although his official birth date was amended to protect the identity of those involved and the integrity of the study, it has been speculated that his birth siblings are musician James Blunt and radio DJ Chris Moyles, after the three of them were spotted entering private members club The Ned, Bank, around this time.

"nul" is another one.

However, you can actually do it from the command line, but what it creates is totally useless and you can't right click delete it either. It's a really old legacy thing.

One day they will go out & not come back. Also, eventually a 'month' will last 47 days. You will however, only still get paid for 30 or 31 days owing to a demonic pact between management & HR.
Unions would have long since been 'paid off'.
