    My (highly limited) understanding is that poor quality soil will result in less fruit produced per plant, since the plant has to work twice as hard to produce the fruit, it can't maintain as much of it.
    Therefore less fruit produced = more expensive to produce same quantity of wine, explaining why the "best" wines etc cost so much!

    Fact #78: Natural gas does not have any odour. In order to detect a gas leak, some gas companies add a chemical that smells similar like rotten eggs.
    Fact #79: According to studies and surveys, men prefer to have white bedrooms and women prefer to have blue bedrooms.

    It clearly proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that people with purple bedrooms are neither men nor women.

    Clearly depends on the colour. I think you're probably one of those geeks that has transparent paint on the walls.

    Still a reasonable restriction now for a call girl isn't it?

    For tomorrow...a nice one

    Fact #81: Archimedes could have lifted the Earth more by jumping up and down than using a lever. Archimedes once said: "Give me a place to stand and I will move the Earth." While he discovered the power of levers, the QI elves have calculated that if he weighted 100kg, and he placed his fulcrum a kilometre away from the bottom of the Earth, in order to balance the planet he would need a lever 6.5 billion light years long. Assuming he could find a lever that long, if he moved his lever by one metre, the Earth would move less than the distance of the diameter of a proton.
