I've got an interesting fact about the Ricky Mountains: The Rocky Mountains were initially formed from 80 million to 55 million years ago during the Laramide orogeny, in which a number of plates began to slide underneath the North American plate. Laramide orogeny is a phrase you really have to try to get into a conversation sometime.

I reckon, the Rocky Mountains are gigantic rock-hard Georgian Hot Cross Buns.  :yes:

If you  die in Amsterdam with no next of kin, and no friends or family to prepare funeral or mourn over the body, a poet will write a poem for you and recite it at your funeral

Would you pass a British citizen test?

One in three fail the exam to settle in the UK, but how well would you do?

 

I bet you never knew question #7.

The USA is approximately 40 times the size of the UK.

There are 11 states that are larger in area than England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland, combined.

1. Alaska is equal to 7.05 UKs
2. Texas is equal to 2.86 UKs
3. California is equal to 1.74 UKs
4. Montana is equal to 1.56 UKs
5. New Mexico is equal to 1.29 UKs
6. Arizona is equal to 1.21 UKs
7. Nevada is equal to 1.17 UKs
8. Colorado is equal to 1.11 UKs
9. Oregon is equal to 1.04 UKs
10. Wyoming is equal to 1.03 UKs
11. Michigan is equal to 1.03 UKs

 

(That's why Americans say things like "only a 3-hour drive" or "just 200 miles outside of London" :lol:)

On the day of The Queen's Speech (like today!) when the Queen goes to the Palace of Westminster to outline the government's legislative agenda, a Member of Parliament is taken 'hostage' by Buckingham Palace, until the safe return of the monarch.

The custom dates back to the mid-17th century, when Parliament and Royalty were not on such friendly terms, following the English Civil War.

Can we choose who it is, and can we ask them to keep them indefinitely on some trumped-up pretext?

Nice idea!  Then he can build a wall around Buck Pal and get the Commons to pay for it.

That's interstign because the Asassins were of course a Persian sect who made a name for themselves by being, well, hired assassins. The word, of course, deriving from "hashish".

Here's the reason that Macbeth is called "The Scottish Play".....

In times gone by, theatres showing an unsuccessful play would scrap it mid-run and change to a play with a smaller cast. Invariably, Macbeth.

It was uttered in hushed tones in the theatrical world, because it was a sign that your play was a dud.
