I think that guarantees that I won't be watching James Bond anytime soon. Not even the most epic of all legends could do that. It's too unrealistic.

Level 84

Lots of those kills are based on him blowing up buildings and vehicles with people inside. We don't see him individually kill 597 people.

I assume 597 is taken from Screenrant's count, or the same source, as they have the same figure, and according to them he notches up 235 kills in Spectre alone. That's like 40% in the last film, but 150+ of those are from him blowing up people we never see in Blofeld's lair. So estimates vary. It's definitely way more than 23 though!

Ya, with 24 movies I was sure it was going to be more than 23 kills, so I went with the big number

You definitely shouldn't watch Bond if his killcount is too unrealistic for you, the series is deliberately ridiculous.

In "Never Say Never" Bond was told at the health clinic to "eliminate free radicals."

He took that seriously!

"Teeth in the adult human mouth, including wisdom teeth"

I would add "most common number of", or "average number of", or something like that, since it is possible to have more or less.

From wikipedia:

"While a single excess tooth is relatively common [...]"

(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperdontia)

I would say that the average number of teeth is far less than 32, since they fall out or are removed as people age.

Ah yes, I walk into Tesco and pay for something £1.31. Then I hear the cashier say "One Pound Churty-one".

But in all fairness we pronounce them as they are spelt

We do pronounce "t" as "ch" sometimes, at least some os us do.

An example in 1PC's link is the word "picture"

Yes, but that's median. In almost all cases, "average" signifies mean. Of course, I have no idea what the mean age of Ugandans is. It's definitely considerably higher than this though.

Which creates a bit of a problem for Nepal, because to truly reach the top now, you have to cross into Tibet at some point.

LOL! Nice one, but what I meant was that now, the Tibet route is 3 feet shorter than the Nepal one, and up there, every inch matters, and 3 feet could make the difference, so more people might opt for the Tibet route.
