  1. More correctly marking the last kilometre - but its a maillot jaune and a ding to Sharpeset!!
  2. Cheers! Le Tour is on! I know what the Lanterne Rouge signifies, but what is the Flamme Rouge?
  3. Mendelsson wrote the music for both That's ,the fellow - over to Sharpset!
  4. Thanks Opti! So, what is the connection between "Hark the herald angels sing" and "The Wedding March"?
  5. Sticking with the origins of sayings (ish): How about an origin of - "saved by the bell!"?
  6. Was this not a trial or discussion in secret, derived from an occasion when such a happening occurred in a room with a marble rose in the ceiling?
  7. I have googled it - talk about niche knowledge - I wonder if the setter could reconsider the rule about the questions being at a level that would be normally asked in your local pub quiz! :) :)
  8. The 528ft rule is fine for open locations, but IMHO irrelevant in many urban locations. I once had a cache in my front garden, it was there for about 8 years I think. My son wants to replace it with a cache of his own - an ammo box. However there is now a micro 459ft away. But this is across peoples houses and gardens! to walk to it is well over 528ft. Is straight line distance appropriate in urban conditions - discuss. (Rider: the guideline [rule] was I believe originated not so much for density reasons, but to ensure that a cacher could be certain which cache they had found as, many years ago, GPSr's reputedly only had an accuracy of 30ft +/-)
  9. A cuttingly good answer from martin&lindabryn. Two thirds of the way down a line between the umbilicus and the superior iliac spine (and I don't think I have trotted that description out since about 1965!)
  10. Cheers Kidder, How about a location for......... McBurney's Point
  11. This tweaked my interest so I googled it and was gobsmacked. :lol: Mind as the footnote (head note) on Wikipedia said : "Note: an asterisk (*) indicates that this code is unofficial (does not appear in the UN list of distinguishing codes)."
  12. For what it is worth Paul it seemed you were making a genuine and positive suggestion to mediate the discussion/dispute and I felt using your post to lock the thread ill-judged & linking it in to Godwin's Law quite unnecessarily offensive. Had the invocation of Godwin's law not taken place in the first place the thread wouldn't have been locked. I felt there was no comparison to the actions of a certain dictator - more a reflection on the "findings" of experts.

  14. Which both you and I, and many others, have commented on many times in the past!!
  15. I am not sure that any of the current reviewing team have been in place for more than 8 years........almost exactly :ph34r:
  16. ...or is it all, again, just about the fundamentalist attitude of not wanting to make a smiley too easy to get?
  17. I will have a punt at (Woolwich) Arsenal, Emirates, Highbury and somewhere in Woolwich!
