I spend so much of my time reading random things on the internet. Sometimes I stumble on interesting random facts, for example:
- There is a piano on the top of Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest mountain, put there by some dundonian removal men in the 1980s.
- The world’s first real intercity, passenger-carrying rail service was the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. It used Stephenson’s Rocket as its locomotive and on its opening day in 1830 a Member of Parliament managed to get himself run over and killed by one of the trains.
