Useless Facts that not very many people know.
There's this show called QI presented by Stephen Fry. It's a game show where they ask questions, and if you give the obvious answer then you LOSE points, but if you give an answer that is Quite Interesteing then you get awarded points by Stephen Fry.
It's great.


EDIT: In fact, here's a clip I found on youtube.com. There's loads more on there.

Leonardo da Vinci invented scissors.

In 1840, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow became the first American to have plumbing installed in his house.
