100 things we didn't know this time last year

Firstly, Happy New Year to all those who I have not told personally...

Secondly (and yes I am fond of chronological order), this story, which can be found on the BBC News website is great and very interesting:

Various events and news from the last year have been compiled into 100 THINGS WE DID'NT KNOW THIS TIME LAST YEAR. Great comparrison's, mind-b(l)oggling information and purley a great read to see how far we (or others) have come.

Example: Baboons can tell the difference between English and French. Zoo keepers at Port Lympne wild animal park in Kent are having to learn French to communicate with the baboons which had been transferred from Paris zoo.
