    Yes! Same goes for all wine - your hand affects the temperature.

    Is it the same for sardines? I threw away a heap the other day, as I couldn't find a best before date.

    My fact...if you make a hole in the bottom of your hard boiled egg after you've eaten it, a witch can't get you. Must be true as I've always done it and never been got.

    That champagne and sparkling wine are not the same thing! Every time someone says they're having champagne and then say it's <insert some yellow glen version> I want to scream...

    That electrocution means you die by electricity! So many people say "omg I was just electrocuted" .....no you had an electric shock. No one seems to know the difference

    I never knew that some traffic lights are on sensors, I thought they were all on a repetitive timer. So when my best friend and I were driving around in the middle of the night years ago, I was amazed at how every single traffic light turned green when we got to it, I thought it was really weird. And my best friend thought I was an idiot because I didn't know that they have sensors when you drive up to them LOL

    That the numbers on the dial of a toaster are actually minutes - not low, med and high setting.
