Interesting, but useless information I learnt today

  • Bananas grow on plants that are giant herbs, and are related to the lily and orchid family.
  • The average weight loss of a race horse during a race is between 6kg and 10kg.
  • A 500gram loaf of bread requires 2 tonnes of water to grow the wheat to produce it.
  • Only two animals can see completely behind themselves without turning their heads: the rabbit and the parrot.
  • There are more than twice as many kangaroos as people in Australia.
  • I will forget all of these by tomorrow morning.
