    So, the guy referring to a hearse as a “hurst” can post here….
    But, I’ll admit it was only yesterday that I ‘learnt’ that smog means/is made up of “smoke and fog”!

    Go on then – what daft things have you only recently ‘learnt’, that seem obvious once you’re in the know…

    The in-laws were staggered to learn that banoffee pie was made of banana and toffee the other day… Quite a revelation…

    I found out today that the Tacoma Narrows bridge collapsed because of Aeroelastic Flutter, not Forced Resonance.

    At the weekend my wife found out that not all the carriages on First Scotrail trains are First Class. I couldn’t understand why she wouldn’t let us get onto the carriage – “Not that one, it’s First Class, Oh! They all are”. On the Fife Circle FFS…

    only had the car 4 years and always wanted one of them !!!!

    I moved into a new cottage once. On the wall in the kitchen was a switch – flicked the switch and a red light came on but nothing really happened so I flicked it off and ignored it for a couple of years.

    The two years on it caught my eye again – flicked it on and off a few times, nothing happened but I left it on and went to work.

    Got home and there was a curious gurgling bubbling noise coming for from the attic – turned the tap – hot water – well I’ll be damned! Up til then I’d been running the woodburning stove winter and summer (for bloody hours) just to get a bath or hot water for the washing up.

    Freeze the corpse first. Use a circular saw. Use a handheld vac to get rid of frozen chips etc.

    I was about 30 when I realised that the pronunciation of “W” was cunningly a description of a double “U”.
