Also, John Tyler 10th President of the USA, born 1790, has two living grandsons. I always wheel that out at parties.

Strangely I don't get invited to many parties now though.

Thanks to Laga, I now know that all percentages are reversible.

12% of 95 is the same as 95% of 12.

And ruby is red.

They actually state "dark ruby red" on their website.

Why is Guinness black?

Look closely. Guinness beer is not actually black but rather dark ruby red because of the way the ingredients are prepared. Some malted barley is roasted, in a similar way to coffee beans, which is what gives Guinness its distinctive colour.
