Fuzz Fact Friday: #12

Fuzz Fact Friday is back to share with you five interesting facts for you to impress your friends with. So sit back and enjoy.

1. Doctor Who was first portrayed by William Hartnell in 1963

In the BBC popular show, the initial incarnation of the Doctor was played by Hartnell from 1963 to 1966, when Patrick Troughton then took over the role. There have been twelve Doctors in total, and currently the character is played by Peter Capaldi.

2. Dark and milk chocolate contain caffeine but white does not

Fact: White chocolate has no caffeine in it

There is about 43 mg of caffeine in 100g of dark chocolate and around 20 mg of caffeine in 100g of milk chocolate. But white chocolate does not contain caffeine, and this is due to how it does not contain any cocoa solids. It can however sometimes have traces of caffeine depending on production.

3. The scientific term for brain freeze is “sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia”

It’s safe to say, that trying to pronounce that can be a… bit of a headache (Did you see what we did there? God we’re so funny!)

4. Goldfish can’t close their eyes as they have no eyelids

Fact: Goldfish have no eyelids

This means you can’t really tell when they are asleep. However, most commonly while sleeping, they will float at the bottom of the tank, seemingly in a trance state.

5. There is a town in Norway called Hell

And while its name implies it might be quite the hot and sunny place, in actual fact for around a third of the year, the village in the middle of rural Norway freezes over, reaching sub-artic temperatures as low as -25 °C (-13 °F).
