"Scary's 'Did you know?'"

Did you know...

...that the world's tallest building is the Great Tower of Clacton on the Essex coast of England, which rises to a mammoth twelve feet off the ground. From the public viewing platform at the top there are breathtaking views of the public toilets on the High Street, and on a clear day, you can see nearly as far as Frinton.

...former England footballer Paul "Gazza" Gascoigne was elected president of the Central African Republic in 1992 after a popular "write-in" campaign. His first and only action as the ruler of this impoverished nation was to change its national anthem to his novelty recording of "Fog on the Tyne".

...that 47% of Americans think that "The West Wing" is a fly-on-the-wall TV documentary (and that 65% of all statistics are made up on the spot).

...that viewers of Sky TV's digital services can now direct smart bombs directly onto targets in downtown Baghdad. Just press the red button on your handset.

...that MTV Europe has banned videos by the B-52s for the duration of the war. There is a God.
