People are only just realising why they start on 501 in darts and not 500
Darts is a unique sport in many different ways – not least because you don't exactly have to be an Adonis of physical fitness to be a world-beater. It's also different in the sense that, unlike other sports, the darts gods don't seem to be a fan of round numbers.Considering how the game is scored and the accuracy with which some of the game's top players throw, it's unsurprising to see why each leg begins with both players on 501.Even then, a few well-placed arrows can see a player pull off a much loved nine-darter – where they win the leg without having to break into double figures in terms of the number of darts thrown.The is, of course, a reason behind why the number is 501 rather than its nice round neighbour just one point below.No, it isn't simply to irritate those who prefer everything in their lives to be nice and neat and tidy – it's to add a bit more competitiveness into the game.If each leg began with players on 500, all they would conceivably need to do would be to keep aiming at the 20 to score without having to travel around the board.Having the scores start at 501 and making players hit a double to win they need to score at least one odd number before checking out – making it more difficult.Seems simple enough – but even now it seems not everyone is aware of why the scoring system is as odd as it is.What's the weirdest rule you can think of in any sport? Let us know in the comments section. For even now, there are people asking that very question online, causing darts fans everywhere to groan in exasperation.

Netflix Too Hot To Handle stars want to move on from being prosecuted and plane bust-up
Netflix's Too Hot To Handle stars Matthew Mawhinney and series winners, Harry Johnson and Beaux Raymond, were fined nearly £3,000 last year for being abusive to cabin crew on a flight home after filming for the show.Series three of the hotly anticipated show launched last week and since its premiere, Matthew has reflected on the incident.He said: "We're just really looking to move forward from it as quickly as possible."Last year, Matthew, 23, the son of Britain's first female attorney general, Baroness Scotland, had been arrested alongside fellow contestants Harry, 28, and 23-year-old Beaux for their drunken antics whilst flying.Matthew had reportedly spat at a British Airways hostess and said, 'Look up who my mum is' whilst the trio was found drunk and disorderly during their flight home from the Turks and Caicos Islands.A court heard that the British Airways flight cabin crew had refused to offer the trio any more alcohol after they became verbally abusive and repeatedly taken off their face masks whilst on board.Days after the series launch, the trio have shared their apologies and comments on the situation.Matthew said: "Our behaviour was immature and irresponsible, and it's weighed heavy on all us, and we're just really looking to move forward from it as quickly as possible."Harry, who romanced Beaux on the show and went on to win added: "I hope when people do watch the show, they realise that our characters aren't what's been portrayed and obviously it just was a drunk mistake." Beaux said: "Definitely.
