Fork Me Why would you assume that? Watching historical films about old battles has nothing to do with Remembrance Day which isn't until November 11th anyway. And that's not even the same everywhere. I know Canada does it then (same as the UK) but not...

Luna Kino's thread about battles on youtube brought this to mind. Does anyone else remember this spectacular annual event? The brother had the honour of taking part twice. Once when he was a Royal Naval Cadet at HMS Ganges - he had the dubious...

Lovely Fred Perhaps you could back up your point, or perhaps tell me why I'm wrong about auto-pilots. Pretty much everyone that's flown in a commercial airliner has put their life into the hands of a computer, and pilots of advanced aircraft such as the F117...

Fork Me Since moving to Cyprus I've learned a lot about Greek mythology that I didn't know before. It's a fascinating topic. By the way Aphrodite was born here (or emerged from the Sea here depending on who you ask). It's a common name for girls here...

Fork Me Seafaring cities often have their own legends about the sea. In Liverpool the liver bird features a lot. I was once told by a scouser that the birds on top of the liver building are one male and one female. The one looking out to sea is the...

Plutonium OK, going off topic here so I'll be brief. Did this band get their name from the "man they couldn't hang", John Lee? He was sentenced to death and his execution was scheduled for 23 February 1885, but he survived 3 attempts to hang him. Google...

Fork Me It was their voices that were irresistibly beautiful. The appearance of the Sirens in Greek mythology was "part woman part bird". Some ancient art has them as beautiful and some as hideous. Also there were three different groups of Sirens, one...

Luna Sometimes he did sound a bit american - but he was actually Scottish - born in Glasgow. A very talented song writer/performer as is his son, Peter. He was also quite a comedian - saw him once in a Pantomime in Leeds - he stole the show!

Fork Me Blondie were, IMO, one of the greatest bands ever to exist. From their first eponymous LP right up to 2017's Pollinator they never did a bad album. OK, that last bit's a lie. They did do a bad album, they did one bad album, it was called The...

Fork Me Luna's already posted a live Johnny Cash version of Rock Island Line. The song has unknown origins but the first record of it seems to come from 1929. It was first recorded in 1934, by some prison inmates in Arkansas, since then I've just looked it...
