Some useless facts my newspaper printed today:

- one of six internists in Germany has been beaten by a patient
- Radio Finland broadcasts news in Latin every Friday and Saturday
- George Bush and Saddam Hussein shared te same shoemaker: Artioli from Italy
- bashing your head against the wall burns about 150 calories an hour
- one litre of printing ink from Hewlett Packard costs more than a litre of Chanel No. 5
- by selling 627 records in one week you can make rank 84 of the German album charts
- Cajus Julius Caesar is a member of the German Bundestag
- before signing the embargo on Cuban products, JFK had his spokesman supply him with 1200 Havana cigars
- the British Queen is a learnt truck mechanic (I actually knew that before, but I find it just great, so I couldn't help mentioning it)
- you can use Viagra for keeping cut flowers fresh
- cut an onion and rub it on the soles of your feet; about an hour later you have the taste of onions in your mouth
and my personal favourite:
- in Japan you can buy a DVD called "Crush by Venus": eroticism for men whose fetish are dominas crushing model trains with their boots. Don't believe this? Take a look

There were a lot more, taken from the book "Neon Unn├╝tzes Wissen", that obviously contains nothing else but useless facts - I'm tempted to buy it XD

He's back!

*Yeah!* for David Tennant! Yesterday evening he returned to play Hamlet at the Novello Theatre. Some slight alterations were made for him (he doesn't have to pull Polonius off the stage for example) - still no guarantees that he'll perform every night next week, but I'm so happy right now, hoping that I might actually see him.
I'd like to thank my boss, who wouldn't give me time off in December so I had to postpone my trip to London until January. She might have earned herself a souvenir for that ;)

btw: the evening programme for my trip is now complete! Booked the last ticket today. It actually is theatre/musical every night. Thursday: Hamlet, Friday: Oliver!, Saturday: Avenue Q. Might be a bit of an overkill, but then I don't get to London that often, so I have to make the most of it.
