Hey, neither do I! One of the things with naval terminology is that it can be extremelly idyosincratic, and the names usually don't translate between languages. So while, sure, I can name all sorts of ship elements in Castillian, I still get confused with most of them in English.

It's like trying to name fishes or trees in another language.

In Gulliver's Travels, Swift just made up all (? some, anyway) of the nautical terms.

Hee hee! Jonathan Swift would've made a great internet troll.

His father was the frost giant Fárbauti. Who was married to Laufey or in some stories Nál, the mother of Loki. Laufey also seems to have been one of the Vanir. I looked this up quite extensively for my Norse/Russian/Finnish game I am currently off and on running.

Bonus: Apparently, that chick who played Blossom on TV has a PhD in Neuroscience. No wonder she makes a good geeky scientist on Big Bang Theory.

Danica McKellar, who played Winnie Cooper on The Wonder Years, graduated summa cum laude from UCLA. While still an undergrad, she helped to formulate the mathematical 'Chayes–McKellar–Winn theorem'. She's also written three best-selling books aimed at encouraging middle-school and junior high school aged girls to learn and study mathematics.

That makes sense.


I approve of this product or service.


Olive Oil is not supposed to smell or taste like olive. If it does, it is sign of a mistreatment during the production process.


Before putting together the Attractions, Elvis Costello recorded his first album, My Aim Is True with a country-rock band called Clover who went on to become Huey Lewis and the News.


Journey was formed from the remnants of Santana, after Carlos left the band. Steve Perry and his trademark voice didn't start with them until after they'd recorded a couple of totally fogettable albums.

Also, Santana's hit "Black Magic Woman" was originally a Fleetwood Mack song.


There have been five books written, and four films made about "the fifth Beatle" Stuart Sutcliffe.


-You spend more calories eating and digesting celery than what the vegetable itself provides (I still don't like celery, though).

-The Vatican is the only World Heritage site to encompass a whole country.

-The ATMs in the Vatican have the option to display in Canonical Latin.

I'm sure it was posted pages ago, but the Vatican has, on average, 2 popes per square mile.

The man originally hired to play Indiana Jones in Raiders of the lost ark could not do so due to a contractual obligation with an ongoing TV series. That mans name, Tom Selleck and the show, Magnum PI.

I can actually see Selleck in that kind of a role. Not as effectively as the guy from the movies, but I can still see it.

WHAT? I loved that album! Huey Lewis and the freakin' news? I think I just threw up a little.


Not all the News, but some. I think Huey was on vacation and they needed some quick cash.

-Buttingham Palace is not how you write Buckingham Palace, but it starts with butt.

-Farts have been clocked to travel at a speed of 10 feet per second.

The first Academy Awards were in 1927.

The Oscar was named when a reporter said the statue looked like her Uncle Oscar.
