QI knowledge is the best kind. Everyone thinks they can one-up someone else with a nice QI fact, but little do they know everyone else watches it and knows all the random facts too. :lol:

Top speed of my car is 93mph.



Which is why I got 103mph out of it down the M5 around the M42 turn off and 97mph out of it on a flat piece of an unrestricted autobahn. Yeah its sad. My sat nav records this data, and its speedometer doesnt have the 10% error read out like my onboard speedo does. So although I was doing 97mph on the satnavs speedo I would have been touching 105 on my onboard.



Now I must jizz.

I know its dumb and stupid, but last night I dreamed about drinking lots of cider at a festival.

I woke up and my mouth tasted of cider.

Maybe the dream was real, and you are just really hungover :P
