Knocker-up knocker-ups. I'm not joking. Seriously, there were people whose job it was to stay awake all night until the right time, and then woke up the knocker-upper. Thanks QI.

I agree with your points except I think you're wrong about the reason that English is so widespread. I think the fact that the English speaking empire spanned a quarter of the modern world probably had some effects.

and goodness knows we can't simply measure a language by the number of people capable of speaking it rather than the number of people who natively speak it...

Actually the fact about over 1 billion speaking English is false, only about 750 million speak it including as a second or other language

Maybe they sleep during the day so they can be sure to wake up early?

I remember a QI episode about this, and went to the effort of finding the text from the episode:
"A knocker-uppers' knocker-upper was a human alarm clock's human alarm clock. As the industrial revolution grew "knocker-uppers" were hired to go around the town knocking on people's bedroom windows with a pole to wake people up and get them to work. Thus the first knocker-upper needed their own knocker-upper to wake them up and keep the shifts going. One famous Limehouse knocker-upper called Mary Smith woke people up with a pea shooter, firing at the windows."

Regarding the Tetranitratoxycarbon - The way the fact is worded makes it sound like is was actually synthesised by the ten year old. This is not the case. They had the molecule model kits out, and the girl, Clara Lanzen, randomly assembled a symmetrical structure which so happened to be completely new. However, the molecule is completely theoretical - it has not been synthesised yet.

Best part is that it looks based on the model to have explosive properties, but unfortunately is too thermally unstable

I had to read the ten year old one like 5 times to understand it properly.

"A ten year old accidently created in 2012..."

We can rebuild him, we have the technology.

on the college degrees.

Most of the people were well underway with their research/projects, already had the needed knowledge to finish said projects, and finishing college would be a waste of time.
