?
It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago
that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would
supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink.
Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based,
this period was called the honey month
. . . which we know today as the honeymoon.
?
In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and
quarts. So, in old England, when customers got unruly,
the bartender would yell at them "Mind your pints
and quarts, and settle down." It's where we get the
phrase "mind your P's and Q's."
?
Many years ago in England, pub frequenters had a
whistle baked into the rim, or handle, of their ceramic cups.
When they needed a refill, they used the whistle to get some service.
"Wet your whistle" is the phrase inspired by this practice.

*Los Angeles's full name is "El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles de Porciuncula" and can be abbreviated to 3.63% of its size, "L.A."

*The Grateful Dead were once called The Warlocks

*A snail can sleep for 3 years

*A dragonfly has a lifespan of 24 hours

*The average human eats 8 spiders in their lifetime at night? nervous

*The terms noggin(head) and mug(face), originated from old English pubs. People would carve faces on their wooden mugs to distinguish which mug belonged to whom. And, when they were finished drinking they would hit each other over the head and say, "noggin!"

If the title of this thread was - Some Entertaining Factoids - would that make it easier to believe these 'facts'?

Anyone who can lick their own elbow not just the inside bend of their elbow must have the longest tongue or the most pliant joints or the both.

The 2 friends of mine were women.. I'll see at least one of them on monday as we're going drinking a bit. I'll try to get it on camera, and if I do, I will post the photo. Okay?

And my second comment was more of a joke.
