The BBC website's Magazine does a weekly roundup called 10 Things We Didn't Know Last Week. It's now done a roundup of the roundup covering last year. And very good it is, too. Among the things I didn't know was that faking your own death is known as pseudocide. Presumably pretending to make your own fermented apple drink is known as pseudocider. I knew the one about the bear carrying ammunition for the Polish Army during World War Two, but I didn't realise that `tork' is the Swedish term for a man who visits prostitutes, or that the world's oldest Mormon congregation is in Preston, Lancashire, or that toasters are banned in Cuba. Nor did I know that misheard song lyrics are called, rather charmingly, `mondegreens.' I must try and find out why.
