    Many internet facts are interesting, trivial and not facts.

    Just reworking the figures.

    900 x 1000kg = 900000 kg. :)
    There are (about) 25 million Australians. :)
    Therefore, 25 000 000/900000 = 27kg of toothbrushes per Australian per year o_O

    Therefore 900,000/25000000 = .036 kg per Australian = 360 grams

    Average toothbrush weighs around 20grams *guess*. :)

    That means the average Aussie disposes of 1350 toothbrushes per year
    Or 3.7 toothbrushes per day o_O

    That means that the average Australian disposes of 18 toothbrushes per year or 1.5 toothbrushes per month.

    Lol. Looks like I had a bit too much to think that night!

    Where 1kg = 1000g

    .036kg is 36g o_O

    About 2 toothbrushes.

    Which amazingly is about right! (I hope!) :)

    Marsupials are usually left pawed, especially kangaroos. Female dogs and cats tend to be right pawed, but males tend to favour the left.
    (fair to say my maths has gone to the dogs)

    We have a female dog that (seemingly exclusively) turns left, at least when on the beach. She has one white paw, which is also on the left. No doubt that is the explanation.

    You can see which paw is favoured by observing the lead paw. A dog will always lead with one paw or the other, or favour a paw to retrieve an object.

    Left pawed dogs are harder to teach commands (sit, heel, etc). This appears to be related to independence, rather than inability to "learn". They are also less controllable and tend to be more aggressive

    I suspect most silverstackers are left pawed.

    New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and her partner Clarke Gayford are engaged.

    and the villagers rejoiced.

    I see new Boston valves come with leaks already in them. Saves having to wait 5 - 6 for them to start leaking.

    I have an ageing Red Heeler that blows every rule out of the water. He's nobodies dog. If he allows, you can become his person.

    You can train him to do something, but he'll do it when he's ready.

    He's smarter than most people I meet.

    Old yet still has the lure of the Kavorka.

    When a neighbours barking dog dies, they will be the first to complain about their neighbours barking dog!

    Alligators can live up to 100 years which is why there is an increased chance they will see you later

    The Australian Pelican has the longest bill in the world and can fly at over 1000 feet for 24 hours which is why they are not often in Canberra
