Yes it has to do with one of our offspring!

South African Institute is correct, but of what?

You lived in the town where this place is Cincol!

 

OK - knowing cincol used to be in grahamstown

 

I'll go with SA Inst of Aquatic Biology

previously SA Icthyology?

Knowing that the ceeocanth was from this area and the JLB Smith Intitute (hey maybe that was it)?

Was Mufasa the name of a great Masaai king/warrior ?

 

You've got the right idea!!

 

Mufasa was derived from the name Mustafa Kemal Pasha.

Mufasa was reportedly the last king of the Bagada people (pre- English colonization of Kenya).

 

They still speak a modern version of swahili in Zanzibar, Kenya.

 

Discombob, you're it!! :unsure:

Bingo!!

 

The croatians invented ties, and the French liked them so they took up the idea. The name does not actually derive from Croat though, but from the croatian work for Croatia, which is Hrvatska.

The French then frenchified the word Hravtska to make Cravat.

So in fact, cravat actually means croatia!

 

And on that note, I am going on a 8 day sailing cruise around the croatian islands next month! Oh Yeah :blink:

Okay's - keeping it local.

Where the Outiniqua Pass was being renotavted a group of volunteers from the very new South Cape Herbarium went on a rescue mission to save plants from the blasting and bulldozers. As a result a "new" fynbos was discovered and saved. What was it?

Perhaps a species of erica previously thought to be extinct? Have no idea what theough?

 

You're on the right track. It is an erica and if it would have been extinct before it had been discovered! The plant found is still growing in the grounds of the George Museum.

 

But what did they call it?

Does it have something to do with cockney ryhming slang?

 

Speaking of jiffys, there used to be a condom brand called jiffy (I think in the 60s maybe)

Two of their marketing slogans were:

 

Play it safe, play it cool,

wear a Jiffy on your tool.

 

and

 

If she's game and wants your plonker,

wear a jiffy, so you can bonk 'er

 

Could that have something to do with "doing something in a jiffy"

Perhaps it refers to a certain problem certain men have while "doing something in a Jiffy"? :rolleyes:
