...this is where the answers are!

the home of random obscurity since 1998

      Welcome to café ABsite answers, the place with the answers to lots of questions you'll probably never ask. This site was set up because someone asked me what the largest towns in the UK were and I didn't know. Because I had to find this out for my dissertation, together with another set of useless (but interesting) numbers, I decided I should make somewhere for all this useless knowledge to go.

      You will also find here the answers to various questions that have bugged me that I have managed to find the answers to. Items without links are things I have the answer to, but haven't typed out yet.

      In a change from the previous revision, questions are now categorised. In theory it makes it easier to find things, just pick a letter corresponding to the thing you want to know about... more randomness can be found at five kilograms...
