Some nasty, horrible and disgusting facts.

A former Soviet agent has claimed that Stalin spied on several people by analysing their faeces. Among the people who were victim to this were Chairman Mao.

'Nasty, horrible, and disgusting'? Come on. If the Beeb can dedicate a whole series of health programs* to poo, then stop being anal about it .

*Dr Gillian McKeith (PhD), for those who missed it. And yes, her qualifications are related to linguistics, not nutrition.

That was channel 4, wasn't it?

Her health qualifications were bought on the internet.

I wasn't trying to be anal, I was trying to think of a way I could connect shit to a word starting with the letter "N", and "Nasty" was the one that came to mind.

Me bad. Omitted the sticky out tongue :-P

Play on words - poo vs anal.
Ah well..

And in fact, her qualification in Linguistics is a BA from the University of Edinburgh.

She also has a genuine MA in International Relations from the University of Pennsylvania, but her PhD was obtained via a distance learning program from a non-accredited school which has since ceased trading. (Note the word trading. It never did do teaching.)

Buying a PhD in that way is not illegal, and so it probably is worth the paper it's printed on. But not very much more.

I think Nasty is rather pretty actually - it is a little village in eastern Hertfordshire and rather nice (and not far from Ugley, a pretty village in Essex).

Ah yes, Ugley. That's the village which is home to the Women's Institute of Ugley.

WIs are usually called Placename Women's Institute, but for some reason the one in Ugley chose to do it the other way about.

One can only wonder why. Perhaps they had a chat with the good ladies of Loose, in Kent?

A nasty fact. Donald Trump is the Republican Nominee for the US Presidential election.

Until the election ends - then he'll have either lost or be president.

Might be sooner than that. Unlikely, at this stage, but not impossible.

QI, that otherwise option. *Am trying my damnestest to come up with something that would qualify*
Hah. One glass of unpasteurised, raw, milk will do the trick.
