Around 50% of the population may already know this. But for the other 50% here is a weird fact I just learnt.
Women using Fleur sanitary pads get Christmas crackers every month. You see, not only do you get a feminine hygiene product when you open a Libra Fleur pad. You also get a list of amazing facts, called Odd Spots.
Do you think they hope to start early when they run out of things to mention during small talk?
Though, I think they may be being short changed on miscellaneous trivia. As can be seen, both Odd Spot #221 and #146 both state “Research indicates that mosquitoes are attracted to people who have recently eaters bananas“.
Not to mention the marketing genius involved in the packaging. Let’s see, it has to do with blood, we’ll make it pink with different coloured red spots. Just in case they find it in their handbag and can’t remember what it’s for.
It seems I’m a bit behind the times in noticing this though: Some people noticed it way back in 2004 [1,2]; though others seem just as surprised as me; and some think the Odd Spots are just a load of crap.
If you want anymore impressions you can go trawl Google blog search on the topic.
Although I have learnt two important things from this list: You shouldn’t talk about your mother around ferns; And don’t lick finger print recognition devices.
