Why would the fact you're a moron upset me?

As an aside though another Move song, Flowers in the Rain was the first song ever played on Radio One.

That could and should have been posted on me remarkably unpopular Music anecdotes thread....

Sean, if the thread had been called useless music trivia it almost certainly would have been. I have any number of such facts I could amaze you good people with.

Hit me.

Happily, the first Spice Girls Single not to go to Number 1 was Stop, it was kept off top spot by Run DMC vs Jason Nevins - It's Like That.

Roy Wood was in The Move & Wizzard.
He has never received any royalties for Flowers In the Rain though - The Move got sued by Harold Wilson over a libellous postcard they used as promo material for the single, and all royalties continue to go to charity.

I'm not a moron. However, Gordon is a moron.

Nice. The most famous person to come from my (southern) home town is/was Reg Presley. He used to have a big house which you could see from the dual carriageway that overlooked a corn field. There were corn circles in that field and it inspired him to become worryingly obsessed by the phenomena. The Troggs collabertion with REM released in 1992 named 'From Athens to Andover' was derived from the home towns of each band.

Boooom.

You've never seen Rachel Weisz. Apart from through a telescope and a sticky pair of binoculars.

The Bangles were originally The Bangs but had to change their name due to legal issues.

Most people would do the lead singer but not the other three.

An interesting Troggs fact now Sean. Their song With a Girl Like You was number one the day England won the world cup in 1966.

I am a well of knowledge, feel free to dip your buckets.

Tina has three eyes

The binoculars are for scouting and the telescope for close-ups when he's located her. I mentioned "sticky" as a "w*nk" connotation, would have made more sense about the telescope though. And yes, he does.

Not a bad thing. Encylopeadic recollections of other poster's quotes is slightly worrying. Not sure you want to be in the same bracket with the likes of Strongy, Windows etc (LSW)

I like it when Strongy tells us about the views of posters on other forums!!!

I don't care what people on here think, why would I care what some idiot on a forum that I choose not to visit thinks?

What I should have done is wait for a few days until people forgot and then tried it. Would have caused quite a scandal I imagine.

Sorry chaps.  Was trying to post my Bangles snippet onto michaels thread to make him feel confident about himself.  We had a power cut at work and I had to do my cutting and pasting in the dark.  Unfortunately, some other posts may have been inadvertently displayed under my name.

Would love to stay and refute Rowley's "numerous times" allegation but TSMR is off for a run and I'm off to read a few boxing books in the bath.  Clever of me to get her a GPS watch for Xmas. God I love Tino.

Fret not, Tino. Michaels has been a bit down recently with his failed bird table, as is evidenced by him leaving his packed lunch at home. A failed thread may have caused him to end it all with the circular saw so it's best we cheer him up a bit by showing interest. It's the 606 v2 way.

Whilst I agree with the general sentiment Galted, if Tina starts about insects again I may have to go and join Michaels' thread.

The oldest known animal to have lived on land is the arthropod Pneumodesmus newmani. Fossil evidence of this species consists of a single specimen that was discovered in 2004 in Scotland. Pneumodesmus newmani is classified as a millipede and is thought to have lived 428 million years ago, during the Late Silurian Period.

Millipedes are vegetarians. Unlike centipedes that eat bats, snakes, spiders, Indonesian peoples legs.

I could spice things up with some factual Hi-Tec stories to keep the interest going. Don't think I've told you about the time I walked on a beach in St Helier with them on and left footprints in the restaurant we went to just after.

It needed an "and" as well. I would have ended with "...spiders and the legs of Indonesians". Far more pleasant to read, especially out loud.

Fortunately for me I had stopped reading way before that point.

Of all animal groups, arthropods are the most diverse and their diversity is due in no small part to the diversity of one subgroup, the insects. Scientists approximate that there may be as many as 30 million species of insects alive today. To date, over one million have been identified. The success of arthropods has been attributed to their versatile exoskeleton, the process of metamorphosis, and their metameric body structure. There are no know records of insects giving a f*ck about nuances of grammar. They just eat stuff and kill each other.

He does bury the vaguely interesting/marginally less dull bits of his posts with an avalanche of irrelevant facts and latin names.  I did notice from the post that he likes his arthropods old, I see a pattern developing.

Most diverse my arse, they're all small and crunchy.  Fish and lizards are far more diverse.

They are, certain fish can bite humans into chunks. Two, and possibly three, species of lizards are venomous.

The one that ate the geezer in Skyfall certainly looked more interesting than the average bug.

All terrestrial arthropods undergo internal fertilization and sperm is usually transferred to the female indirectly. Aquatic arthropods vary in their reproductive methods, with some species using internal fertilization and others external fertilization. Most arthropods lay eggs. Scorpions are the exception to this rule, they incubate their eggs internally and give birth to live young.
