I remembered this conversation on the forum.

Latch-lifter n. [Scouse (Liverpool) argot] 1. The price of admission, leading to the possibility of free rounds. 2. The HACKER effort expended to gain initial access to a site

=>The Stoic ethics of Merseyside pub crawling demands that you pay for your first bevvy (drink), figuratively "lifting the latch" and gaining a valued place at the bar as a bona-fide customer. Thereafter, endless ploys are available to sponge from friend and stranger. Thus, you may challenge all upstanding (if any) to name the last man to box Gentleman Jim (the undertaker); seek the dead center of town (Anfield Cemetery); or ask who played for both Liverpool and Everton at the same derby soccer match (the Royal Marines Band). Additionally, there are many bets you can place on factual (name the referee and linesmen at the 1913 FA Cup Final) or Smullyan-type (is A telling the truth about what B is saying about Pascal?) trivia.

Hummmm, the undertaker drew a heavy sigh seeing no one else had come.

As far as the second part of your question, I always think of it as SOLO in the sun. The Beatles are at the end and Paul and John are now going solo. I don't know about the raincoat part. If I discover anything ("I think of everything to be discovered"), I'll add it to the thread.
