Next time you find yourself wandering around Trafalgar Square getting peeved by the pigeons, be warned: they remember human faces. That's just one of the trivia titbits for the taking in this episode featuring Miranda Hart, Stephen Graham (from Boardwalk Empire) and Richard Ayoade.

Less creepy facts revolve around a toddler's apparent inability to lie, and the fire-extinguishing properties of egg whites, though things do get slightly ickier when Lee Mack and the gang conduct a breath-based gender test.
