10 things we didn't know before this time last year that I cared.

1. One in 10 Europeans is allegedly conceived in an Ikea bed.
2. Lionesses like their males to be deep brunettes.
3. "Restaurant" is the most mis-spelled word in search engines.
4. The name Lego came from two Danish words, "leg godt", meaning "play well". It also means "put together" in Latin.
5. Cyclist Lance Armstrong's heart is almost a third larger than the average man's. (So unfair, of course can be world champion lah!)
6. C3PO and R2D2 do not speak to each other off-camera because the actors don't get on with each other.
7. One in 18 people has a third nipple.
8. Giant Squid eat each other - especially during sex.
9. Pulling your foot out of quicksand takes a force equivalent to that needed to lift a meduim-sized car.
10. Bill Gates does not have an iPod.

You can check the remaining 90 at the BBC website.
