I learned that sometimes when songs are rereleased, they are sort of remixed with parts of other songs. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif The more you know, right?

Reporter: Beethoven figures in one of your songs. What do you think of Beethoven?
Ringo Starr: He’s great. Especially his poetry.

I wonder how you know that... a-hard-days-night-george-10

I learned that if you type "deviled eggs" into Google Translate and translate it into French, you get "des oeufs diabolique" which directly translates to "fiendish eggs." The real word for deviled eggs is actually "oeufs farcis" which means "stuffed eggs" and makes a lot more sense.

Don't ask me how I know these things ahdn_paul_02

Fun little fact for you, I used to have a great time going around Dublin Airport when they had put Irish "translations" underneath the English signs, example "luggage collection" blah blah blah.

 

Now when you went to the luggage carousel to collect your stuff after your flight you were greeted with a sign saying "Bígí othar le bhur dtoil"- 'Be patient please'....unfortunately.....someone had used Google Translate to translate it...and what it actually said was "Be a medical patient please".

Every time I would collect my luggage I'd laugh at the idiots who put the sign up, it took YEARS for them to finally change it to 'foighneach'- the correct adjective 'patient'.

Morons.

^ There's one I never heard of, we've got tons of mythical creatures and demons roaming around the place but I've never heard of the cat sí. 

Pretty cool.

 

My favourite ones will always be the fairies though- my friend has a fairy fort next to her house (basically a load of trees that grow in a circle), and her family will never cut it down for fear of the bad luck it might rise (we're a superstitious bunch).

I was thinking lemonade (to sip as I slip into the shade) but that works too. I'll be serving it in the BB house shortly.

And I was going to post something that i learned today to stay on topic but I can't think of anything. Forgive me. I took two finals today and my brain is tired. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

That 'names' matter especially with brands.

Names can engage or repel.....(what works best for you here.... A gravitationally completely collapsed object, or a black hole?). Names  can invoke sentiment, lead us to make assumptions.....Such as calling a possible 2nd referendum in the UK a 'People's Vote'.....as if the last one was a vote for aardvarks! That names can be used to suppress debate as with, 'islamophobia'

But what I learned ....... Have you heard of the company 'Cadabra'?....Nope I thought not. Because 'Cadabra' was often misheard as 'cadaver' a corpse, the company changed its name to Amazon.....That seems to have worked out well.

 

PS I'm still waiting for my White Album deluxe....Ordered November 3rd....To their credit they've sent out another.....(Currently it's at their facility in Anchorage), fingers crossed for Friday.

Failing that, if thoughts can kill there might be a few new 'cadavers' at Amazon....

I realized this, not learned, but close enough. 

It's called a candy cane because it's shaped like a... Wait for it... Cane!!

That sounds like something I would do. I didn't understand that Nothing Bundt Cakes was a play on words until I was thirteen.

Candy cane banned in some US schools this 'festive season' (can't say Christmas).....because it's also the shape of a 'J'......'J' for Jesus.. Get it? Well Gee-Wizz! What the Dickens!

I get that Engel v. Vitale established prayer was unconstitutional in public schools but banning 'candy cane' seems OTT......Still might offend non-Christians and that would be awful!!

 

notes: 'Geewizz' came into being as an alternative to using 'Jesus' as an exclamation.......'What the Dickens' 'Run like the Dickens', 'Fight like the Dickens' etc  similarly exchanged the word Devil for Dickens......

Reminders of a time when religious cusses were far worse breaches of etiquette that F***, S*** and a certain feminine term......a four letter word ending in, *unt.....

 

...........Though I can't see anything wrong with the word 'aunt' myself!!!

Authoritarians can be real jerks when it comes to censorship, especially the progressive ones since they'll make it seem like they're trying to make the world a better place while attempting to censor you.

As for the c word, people started using it in an offensive manner, so they decided it was offensive, just like the word retarded, which in only 50 years turned from the preferred term to refer to someone with an IQ below 75 to a term that's often placed on the same level as other offensive terms like the n word and the other f word.

As for something i learned today, you can actually get in trouble if you choose to work during a strike.
