Thats interesting Alice, Ta !
The number of people reaching 100 years of age is increasing every year isnt it, I wonder if they all still recieve a Telegram from the Queen ?
I also wonder how many of those 100 most commonly used words are swear words . Razz

Any idea as to why on that one Alice? Was the fish thing a bit like the baker's dozen?

in the year 100, the wheelbarrow made its first appearance in China (and, I can attest from my trip there in 2006, is still being used today!)

it is the sum of the first ten odd numbers (1+3+5+7+9+11+13+17+19+21=100)

A Centipede is commonly thought to have 100 legs, but in fact can have anything from about 30 to 300 legs.
Imagine the chaotic scene at a Centpede's New Years Eve party when they all get legless  Laughing  Laughing
