It's a unit of distance most commonly used in horse racing.
It's also a John Connor.
Chevrolet is a French/Swiss name. I didn't know that.
Indeed Louis and his brothers came to the United States from Switzerland, and now we have people fighting over the merits (or lack thereof, as the case may be) of the new Corvette.
Didn't the -et affixed to the end make that somewhat obvious?
I didn't know it factually myself but I couldn't imagine it originating from any other language.
Nope because I never gave it any thought.
"Pram" is short for "perambulator".
Makes sense when you think about it. I didn't.
I did. A long time ago. Never bothered to check if I was right until finding out just now with your post.
Buddymoon is a real thing?
I didn't know that.
There is a pub in the UK (in Dudley) called "The Crooked House" where it's possible to roll an item across a table and make it appear as though it is rolling uphill:
There’s a similar phenomenon in Essex (I think) called Hangman’s Hill. If you park on what appears to be a negative incline and release the hand brake the car seems to roll uphill.
And we have The Electric Brae.
There is, and there's another one in Scotland
My previous (previous previous) car on the Electric Brae.
Handbrake on, obviously, or else it would be away.
It's actually a really dangerous bit of road as you come round a bend on a 60mph road, and find cars rolling towards you!
We have those dotted around the US too, called the Mystery spot. There are a couple here in Michigan, I believe a couple in Cali. I think Colorado has one. Pretty much anywhere that is 'outdoors" touristy and is also on a big hill.
George Harrison was fed up of Paul and John shooting down his ideas when they got studio time, so to add some value to While My Guitar Gently Weeps he asked his good friend Eric Clapton to play the guitar solo which instantly had John and Paul ready to record.
I only found this out a few days ago.
Eric wasn't officially credited for his part on the original release either. I'm given to understand he didn't actually make it into liner notes until the 30th anniversary of the white album.
