    FACT: Leeds is the second largest metropolitan district in the UK; extending 15 miles from east to west, and 13 miles from north to south. This wide boundary contains some 562 square kilometres - of which two thirds is Green Belt - affording some of the most beautiful scenery in Yorkshire.

    FACT:
    Natives of Leeds are known as Loiners.

    FACT:
    Kirkgate Market in Leeds is where Michael Marks first opened his Penny Bazaar (1884) which was to lead, ultimately, to the foundation of Marks & Spencer, in 1890.

    FACT: If stacked on top of each other, the amount of pies consumed in Leeds daily, could stretch out to the distance from the Earth to the Moon.

    FACT: The first and last fart powered factory was built in Leeds in 1896. The factory was open for just a day before a tragic methane explosion occurred.

    Now there's some scientific facts!—there's no real evidence for them—but they are scientific fact!

    I'm trying to find that pic of him that was posted. Where he looks a bit like a sinister Ali G. I think it's been lost in the ether of the forum though.
