    The Tupelo Meteorite

    It's a big piece of rock. And isn't actually a meteorite.

    Plus there was a trip hazard nearby which Mr. QofG's reported to Tupelo District Council or whatever the equivalent is!! :D

    I once went to what was billed from the roadside as 'the world's biggest underground military museum' (somewhere in North Wales on the way to Snowdonia), which turned out to be a couple of rusting tanks in a cave.

    Because that's when I was in town. I thought they might have been able to provide basic lighting for a WORLD RECORD HOLDER.

    where i used to work there was something in one of the archive boxes, mr jones's pencil. so i went and looked at it one day, and it was a pencil with a bit of string and a tag. the tag said 'this pencil belonged to mr jones the supervisor and he used it every day of his working life from 1852 to 1899' or similar. only i didn't believe it because it was still six inches long.

    I've been and wasn't impressed but liked Reutlingen for its location - the gateway to the Swabian Alps.

    btw- it's not in Bavaria but Baden Wuertemberg.

    We had a cracking gig there. It's a small town and we didn't think that many people would turn up but we had a very enthusiastic crowd!

    Prague's National Museum had lots of inexpertly stuffed animals and drawer after drawer of trilobite fossils, and not much else.

    Assorted contrived roadside attractions in the US (world's tallest thermometer, world's largest peach, world's largest sperm whale replica, world's largest frying pan, world's largest beetle, world's largest peanut, etc). See also Australia's big things.

    Smallest house in Great Britain. firstly, I'm sceptical. Secondly, who cares? It's like an extension on that other house, so what?

    Not only did Lenin's office in the Marx Memorial Library have a photocopier in it when I visited, but I have also just discovered that the space it occupies was only walled off years after Lenin left London
