Not that I think any other country would fair any better but a UK survey has revealed how much people are ignorant of agricultural facts. For starters 26% of youngins thought bacon came from sheep, 29% thought oats grew on trees and 17% of adults and kiddies thought eggs were an ingredient of bread. The survey was conducted for the Home Grown Cereals Authority and the National Farmers’ Union. Hmm, seems they have a little bit of PR work ahead of them. Meanwhile over in OZ a list of bizarre Oz tourism questions revealed pretty much the same type of ignorance….”Can I catch a train from Fiji to New Zealand?”, “Can you get Australian money out of ATMs overseas?” and my favorite, an Aussie asked “What was the duty free allowance in Tasmania?”

Stop the presses people, we have got the results of the latest study and they are going to quite frankly horrify you. 80% of women who buy new clothes…wait for it…know they are never ever going to wear them. Holy waste of hubby’s income Batman. The UK survey was commissioned by Mycelebrityfashion.co.uk. and included 1623 women aged between 18-30 . Hmm, the study also found that 91% still had clothes hanging in their closets with the tags still on and that they only wore about 10% of the clothes in their wardrobes. Sheez and it gets worst, 84% said they keep clothes that are way too small for them despite the fact they will never ever fit back into them unless they take Jenny Craig really, really seriously.
