Ten Things I Learned At School That I Will Probably Never Need Again, But Which Nonetheless Refuse To Leave My Memory

  2. Four lines of a poem by Jacques Prévert
  3. How an oxbow lake is formed
  4. The year of the Hungarian Uprising
  5. The complete lyrics of a Grade 1 piano piece entitled 'Wun Long Pan, Famous Chinese Detective'
  6. What electrolytes do
  7. The German for 'I would like a strawberry ice cream'
  8. The name of the bad kid in the 'Roger Red Hat' early reading series
  9. The Roman marriage vow
  10. Gerundives
