Anoraks please queue here.

Prepare to lose any friends you thought you had by repeating to them the facts you find in this thread. The info here is ideal to fill those awkward gaps in conversation at a bar - or perhaps to break the ice with your future in-laws. :eek:

I thought I'd kick off with some stunningly interesting insurance data :eek: :eek:

The only vehicles listed by the ABI, with a larger engine capacity AND lower insurance group than a MINI One are:

  • Renault Clio Diesel various trim levels - 1870cc (bet you want a BE BOP now)
  • Peugeot 306 Diesel - 1905 cc (SLALOM anyone?)
  • Aro 240 or 243 - Petrol or Diesel - 2112cc/2495cc - (It's Romanian you know)
The above stunners are all group 4 and are more than a match for BMW's baby, as you'll all agree.

The only petrol engined cars with a lower rating than the Cooper's Group 8E are:

  • certain Peugeot 306 models with 1721cc engine
  • certain VW Golf's with the 1781cc engine
  • countless Landrovers
Disclaimer:
The above data may not be entirely accurate but it is guaranteed to be 100% useless.

Useless, friendless information

Okay,

did you know that the reason womens clothing buttons up the opposite way to mens is because:

Originally, all buttons were buttoned the same way, the way us fellas do:buttons on the right, holes on the left. During the reign of Queen Victoria, when high society women were dressed by maids, it became apparant that the maids had difficulty in doing up the buttons in reverse so Queenie ordered that all fashionable ladies garments were to be made with reversed buttons and it seemed to have stuck. It also makes it a lot easier for people of the opposite sex to undress each other in a hurry...

I think the jist of the above is true but if not it's quite interesting none the less........zzzzzzzzzzzzz

OK,
Anyone know who said 'ladies and gentlemen, Miss Grace Jones' on her track 'pull up to the bumper' ?
No... But I do know that Liquid Paper was invented by the mother of Mike Nesmith of The Monkees.

And Mike Nesmith, like other '60's rock stars (see below) had a classic Mini cooper S :).
