True or False-
1. Loch Ness holds more fresh water than all of the lakes in England and Wales combined.
2. Croquet was dropped as an Olympic sport after the 1900 games because only two spectators had turned up to watch.
3. The sequel to Phantom of the Opera was delayed for months because Andrew Lloyd Webber’s kitten deleted the musical score from the digital piano.
4. In Ancient Greece, the normal size of a jury was about 500 people.

Just for fun, all true.

1) I think I have heard it's the deepest/largest lake in Britain, so why not.
2) Croquet was in the early Olympics. Possibly this is why it was dropped.
3) I have heard something similar to this before, would be more ironic if it was for Cats. Didn't know there was a sequel to Phantom now I think more on it though.
4) Could well be, don't know my Roman history that well, may be more.

True or False-
1. The adder is the only poisonous snake native to the UK.
2. An estimated 100,000 cats served on warships and in the trenches during World War I.
3. The warty comb jelly has a transient anus that appears when it needs to defecate, then vanishes again.
All true again? I'll get it right eventually!

Surely 3 must be easier to get than 4?
