#18 Every attempt to set up a Manics museum always ends up disastrously as after the first bid was instead used for military land, every subsequent plot chosen unearths ghosts so Scooby Doo things happen while band argue like:
"So who is the ghost then?"
"No it's an actual ghost"
"Yeah but Scooby Doo has an actual character in it wearing a mask."
"But it wasn't wearing a mask it was a ghost?"
"So it's not a Scooby Doo then is it? It's always a character in a monster suit pretending to be a ghost in Scooby Doo so if it's real and unresolved then it's not Scooby Doo. You should have said it was just a Ghost."
"Never even said or could possibly know in first place"

#21 No matter how long James spends in the sun no part of his body tans nicely, apart from his thighs which bronze easily.

#22 in disappoinment over the musical direction Richey went on to found SlipKnot. He's behind the Clown-mask still to this day.

#23 The first full week of December each year is given over to the construction of a winter hibernation nest in the Bradfield house.

#24 Lifeblood would have been one of the most successful albums of all time around the world, but special paperwork is needed for exporting blood products, and there was some confusion... some arguments... some incidents involving heated debates over crisps... so they just left it and went to the pub instead.

#26 Because of the geometry of contempt, so important to the Manics' stage presence, it's James who sings when the band plays live; but it is Sean who is the singer on all of the Manics' albums

#27 Moths are attracted to Nicky's grin. Bats are attracted to James' falsetto vocals. Robots are attracted to the sub-sonic data signals both received by and transmitted from Sean's embedded sub-dermal cranial antennae array.

#28 If you listen carefully to the lyrics to Horses Under Starlight you'll find the song is actually about sheep rather than horses
