  1. Well it sounded good… Apparently he donated a lot to charity, so he’s ‘only’ worth 20 billion…

  2. You probably already know this being a vat of “useful” knowledge 😉 but here is a snippet for you anyway,

    “Ikea is named after its founder, Ingvar Kamprad. I and K are his initials, the E and A for Elmtaryd and Agunnaryd, the farm and village in southern Sweden where he grew up.”

    from BBC News website.

  3. I’m trying hard to reconcile the compliment to my trivia knowledge with your use of the word “VAT” to describe me, WeeB!

  4. hehe..by vat, I meant you seem to just have loads of obscure trivia that you’re able to pull out of storage. So I assumed it might be like a vat as you have loads of knowledge bits there just swimming around waiting to be plucked out.
