thats a big DING DONG to the man in the basque & fish-nets
Thank you. For a straight man I do love a musical. Sticking with things around in 1975, where would you have heard, "She's breakin' up! She's breakin'-" on a semi-regular basis?

That's the opening sequences to the "Six Million Dollar Man" I have the box set :(

A change of direction. I've been watching the IOM TT races on TV and there have been some lap records broken again this year. The current lap record for the 37.73 mile course stands at 131.671 mph but who was the first person to record a 100 mph lap and in which year?

I know that.... Bob McIntyre in 1957 on a 4 cylinder, 500cc Gilera at 101 point something or other miles per hour.

It's a rather ingenious pipe bomb. It can be deployed on a set of tubes that screw together or extend to reach enemy defenses - typically barbed wire. It's pushed under the obstruction and then detonated remotely to clear it. They can also be used to clear mines. They were used extensively in WWI and WWII.

That's a DING and back to you, then.

It was one of those questions that I just knew the answer to. :)

 

Right-ho. Yet another change of tack...

 

What is involved in the crime of embracery?

 

Is it something to do with having allegiance to someone outside the kingdom (speaking as someone currently trying to keep pace with The Tudors)

Way down deep in the middle of the Congo, a hippo took an apricot, a

guava and a mango. He stuck it with the others, and he danced a dainty

tango.

The rhino said, "I know, we'll call it Um Bongo", Um Bongo, Um Bongo,

They drink it in the Congo.

The python picked the passion fruit, the marmoset the mandarin. The

parrot painted packets, that the whole caboodle landed in.

So when it comes to sun and fun and goodness in the jungle, They all

prefer the sunny funny one they call Um Bongo!

Especially the elephant who loves a good party. :P:blink:

OU degree in geology finally pays off. :laughing:

 

A craton is an old and stable area of continental crust that's survived tectonic processes relatively unchanged. They're also called shields. As an example, the central part of Canada is a massive craton formed of precambrian metamorphic rocks that were once part of the ancient Laurentian continental landmass.

Close enough for rock 'n' roll. Have a DING! for that answer. :)

 

Horsts and grabens are caused by normal faults (normal in the geological sense) where the Earth's crust is stretched and under tension and fractures along a fault line with the hanging wall moving down. Downthrown blocks between two normal faults dipping toward each other are called grabens, upthrown blocks between two normal faults dipping away from each other are called horsts.
