    Tears don't flow in space... they just pool around the eyes.

    Imagine doing a space walk and getting emotional at the sight of the planet... and your tears pool around your eyes and you can't wipe your face...

    1/100th of a second is called a jiffy... it is actually a unit of time.

    A factoid is not always true, it is a piece of unreliable information that is repeated enough to seem true

    Such as...

    Before Chris Columbus everyone thought the world was flat.... no, they didn't... they''d known it was a sphere [or an oblate epsiloid] since ancient Greek times...

    But people still cling to it...

    I had a headteacher we used to call Herr Flic. Don't know if she ever knew.

    Lots of educational theory can be thus lumped as ‘factoid’!

    Helga, we know what the future has in store. One day the Gestapo might become unpopular. You may kiss me now:

    Nobody would dare to touch a Gestapo sausage! (Said after Van Klomp's painting of the Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies was hidden in a gigantic wurst that was concealed down a trouser leg).

    If you spell "Boris Johnson" backwards you get an extract from a Black Sabbath song.

    The pics didn't help so resorted to google.

    Gestapo officer in Allo Allo apparently. Which explains why I didn't know. It's the most unfunny programme I've ever come across, and it's still a mystery me how so many people seem to find the Gestapo a suitable subject for a TV comedy series (gets off soapbox ;) )
