Probably best, it's what most people have in their printers. Wouldn't like the job of refilling the sheet feeder though.... Or shredding it for recycling afterwards.

The ant is unable to cook a decent tikka masala based on any meat of its choice, it had difficulty chomping up the cumin.


I have an intolerance for cheap alcohol in the afternoon, particularly Saturdays and in the heat. I end up talking rubbish and nonsense.

Most vampires are described in folklore as flushed and ruddy, with swollen bodies and bloated faces. Often, they can be identified because they're sitting up in the grave.

The longest Monopoly game in a bathtub was 99 hours long

Bernard Clemmens of London managed to sustain a fart for an officially recorded time of 2 minutes 42 seconds

The surface speed record on the moon is 10.56 miles per hour. It was set in a lunar rover.

Every human spent about half an hour as a single cell

Hot water is heavier than cold.

315 entries in Webster's 1996 Dictionary were misspelled.

That statement is very misleading without some clarification.

Water in its liquid state is lighter when it is warmer, not heavier. Until you get down to approximately 4C, when it starts to get less dense as it cools, and when it freezes becomes significantly less dense.

Hot water is heavier than ice. (that's why ice floats) but cold water, in its liquid form, is heaver than hot, unless you consider 4 to be hot and ignore all the temperatures above that.

And for the scientists out there: I know I'm leaving pressure/salinity/impurity out of the matter when quoting temperatures. I'm assuming normal pure water at normal atmospheric pressures.
