Kryptonite
I love random bits of information that make me go “Oh, I didn’t know that” and the BBC through The Magazine, has posted 100 of these little facts to kick start the new year.

My favourites are:
No. 14 Antony & Cleopatra were ugly

No.34 Kryptonite exists (pictured above)

No. 46 Peanuts can be made into diamonds

No. 50 Left-handed people are called sinistral

No. 55 Books used to be bound in human skin

No. 57 Sleeping on the job is tolerated in Japanese work culture, you just have to remain upright and obey some other rules. The term is Inemuri

No. 88 Deep-voiced men have more children

No. 96 Bees can detect explosives
