    In the UK used to be used of blacks, irish, asians... I think you must have grown up with very woke people who didn't use it @Yithian ;) Also of women when men feel threatened by them. As recently as 1996 of me......

    For you, if you say so then it is so. However, it's a word which has the freight I've noted for others! A significant number I mean, not two people and a cat.

    Rebuilding (And Perhaps Re-Imagining) Notre Dame Cathedral

    That's rather worrying @maximus otter ! I'm hoping the reporting and translation led to this :( I wonder what the awarding institution is? Or perhaps they are working entirely within the Engineering Faculty and internal politics mean that they can't/won't go and talk to the Archaeologists?

    Spinach, Iron & Popeye

    I have excess blood calcium because I don't absorb it properly. I've been advised (by somebody relevant!) to avoid more than the occasional indulgence in spinach. Which is a shame because I love the stuff and we can grow it easily!

    Using the wikipedia lyrics (trad arranged by Burns). It says that the Jacobite cause is over, and what is more, is damaging the country. Ye Jacobites by name, give an ear, give an ear, Ye Jacobites by name, give an ear, Ye Jacobites by name, Your fautes I will proclaim, Your doctrines I maun...

    The Everlasting Mystery Of Teaspoons

    I was wondering if it was the one who you are meant to bury in the garden for a quick house sale? I'd never heard of this until about 5 years ago. Now it seems to be "something everyone knows about" and "something we've always done". I just couldn't :(
