Polar Bears cannot be seen by using night-vision equipment.

In 2013, nine babies in the UK were named "Cheese".

Re: Weird facts

Over here in the wonderful luscious land of green grass and drunken women, we have a load of very old streets that were named after the professions of the wonderful citizens of our glorious nation, e.g. Baker Street. The red light district in Bristol and York used to be called Gropec**t Lane (now, renamed to Grope Lane and Grape Lane).

We also have a pedestrian underpass in Castleford, called the Tickle Cock Bridge. It was renamed to Tittle Cott for a period, until a group of immature over-50s group of LADs got it renamed back to Tickle Cock Bridge.

Other dodgy names include Shitterton (no guessing what happened there), The Glory Hole (an alley in Lincoln), Cockermouth (simply spiffing name), The Devil's Arse (a wonderful cave in my glorious county of Derbyshire), and a little village called "Gash".

Always worth a visit up to Scotland to go to the lovely village of "Twatt", too.

We have Sexbierum. Does that count? (Bier is Dutch for beer.)

I always assumed she was a girl. I guess it's because of the name.
