Couples who have a TV in the bedroom have sex half as often as those with no TV in the bedroom. (

Female guppies go through menopause. (

The average time that people with 35-hour-per-week jobs actually work is 40 hours. (This Magazine)

The more meetings an employee attends, the higher their level of fatigue. (The Guardian)

In-a-gadda-da-meeting: noun. Any meeting that could have been completed in half the time it actually took. (
