    Holly Johnson from Frankie Goes To Hollywood got his name from one time when he was dancing with a woman in a club to "Walk On The Wild Side" . She was bisexual and thought he was a girl. But he was enjoying dancing with her so when she asked his name, he said Holly, after Holly Woodlawn, who is mentioned in the first verse of the song.

    Yep! We just weighed in over a tonne that we stripped from an old chemical plant in work before the breakers come in! Divded between 3 of us.

    On 10 January 1984, Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming, recorded a message that one of its Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles was about to launch from its silo due to a computer malfunction. To prevent the possible launch, an armoured car was parked on top of the silo!

    Scarey or what?

    Also, two of my cousins used to be backing dancers for Frankie but were dropped when they hit the bigtime as thought too raunchy. They went by the name of the leatherpets!

    Frankie Goes To Hollywood were the first band (I use the term advisedly, though still love 'em) I saw in concert. It was one of the last gigs at the Apollo in Glasgow, before they closed it down in 1985. Still one of the best I have been too - I was on the balcony and it was jumping!

    (I know this is a fact about me but it is related to the previous posts, so please don't get me into trouble)

    I learnt something interesting at uni the other day....did you know that adipose tissue (that's fat tissue) actually releases a hormone (called Leptin) that makes you want to eat less?! Clever ey. Oh and another one, grehlin is the only hormone (that they know of) that makes you feel hunger!

    Interesting?...I thought it was, but then I'm a science geek hehe!

    Not as far as I know of SG, it's only recently been discovered, expressed by the Ob(lep) gene on chromosome 7 in humans...Parathormone decreases bone density, and cacitonin increases bone density.
