There is a psychological condition known as contrariae cogitationes timoris.

Over the course of its lifetime, an albatross flies the equivalent of going to the moon and back 18 times.

There's a cabal of Trots in York.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Camp David was named for Dwight Eisenhower's grandson (who became Richard Nixon's son-in-law).

The licence plate country code for Cambodia is 'K'.

Dates back to when it was called Kampuchea. I got five points in an office quiz for deducing that.

Duodenal cancer is an incredibly rare form of cancer. One of my staff has just been diagnosed with it. He's 59, ex service, never smoked, barely drinks, fit as a fiddle.

I'm absolutely shattered.

I found out my dad was in a car accident back in Melb., but luckily he's ok. He hasn't been able to drive for much of the year, but his recent hip surgery has helped him and he started driving again a bit.

He'd gone to my sister's place for dinner, and as he was driving away he got distracted trying to tune in a radio station, clipped a parked car, and ended up rolling his car onto its roof. Thankfully he hadn't built up much speed - his seatbelt kept him in his spot till the rescue and fire crew got him out, and he walked away without a scratch. Phew.

Sorry I should have been clearer - he has been given three months maximum.
