Tampa Bay, Florida has an annual parade (and piss-up) for a pirate that probably didn’t exist.

Low-background steel is any steel produced prior to the detonation of the first atomic bombs in the 1940s and 1950s. With the Trinity test and the Atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, and then subsequent nuclear weapons testing during the early years of the Cold War, background radiation levels increased across the world. Modern steel is contaminated with radionuclides because its production used atmospheric air. Low background steel is so called because it does not suffer from such nuclear contamination. This steel is used in devices that require the highest sensitivity for detecting radionuclides.

those fuckin nukes man!

And one of the biggest sources of low-background steel is ships wrecked in WWII.

if you want to forge a +3 longsword of bollocking, does it have to be made of low-background steel?

My obvious thing is that so many people know what low- background steel is and what its sources are. I wish I’d heard of that before - love the idea of people needing to dive to wrecks to retrieve non-irradiated steel for medical equipment. What fucking compost the human race is.

Woebegotten is not a word. There's woebegone and misbegotten but no woebegotten.

Is assumably a word?

That familiar rhythmic clap/stamp (see video) in football match crowds is derived from the song "Let's Go" by The Routers.

The Tory candidate for my constituency in Birmingham in the 1983 election was Michael Portillo. He did pretty well as well.

Listening to that now and being familiar with Jeff Astle's voice from Skinner & Baddiel's Fantasy Football1, it sounds like the vocals might be mainly Astle with reverb, multi-tracked.

1. which used the song for its theme tune at the start[/boring footnote]

I remember it was extensively used throughout the 1966 World Cup by England fans, substituting "England" For "Let's Go". I can't remember now if there was any official use of it at that time; jingles on TV or anything or whether it was only adopted for such uses in hindsight.

Well, TV was invented in the 80s, to show Only Fools and Horses on.

I remember reading somewhere ages ago that the clapping rhythm you're all talking about is called "Kentish Fire" and dates from a couple of hundred years ago where some peasants or whatever were protesting about something. Sorry, bit vague I know. Only reason I remember it is because I'm from Kent.
