Terracotta is from the Italian “terra” (for earth), and “cotta” (for cooked).

I'll post this in the 2018 thread since I realised a couple of weeks ago... while watching the Jonathan Ross show and Gillian Anderson was doing an English accent.  I assumed she was doing it as a gag, or perhaps staying in character for a part she's playing... but no, she's English.

I can’t find the “fuck my hat” thread, so I’ll post this here.

Heaven has its dimensions listed in the book of revelations. It is a city in the shape of ~5 million km2 cube where humans will live forever in spirit form on Earth 2 (although some humans may stay on Earth 1 after the End Times). I think that’s about 2 billion square feet each (assuming all humans who have ever lived are allowed in), so it’ll be roomy up there.

Edit: done the sums, it’s closer to 4.6bn sq feet each. Nice!

Spent time in the UK and US growing up I believe and switches accent Steve McClaren style depending where she is....

But listen to how she says producers in the second clip. Americanised pro-doo-cers. A giveaway!

Not really an obvious thing you can realise, but I do like that this thread, covering a year, has reached 52 pages. One a week!

That former Mrs Mick Jagger, Jerry Hall 62 is indeed married to 18 times Billionaire and TV network owner Rupert Murdoch, 87.

The bells on cat collars are to ruin their ability to sneak up on prey, thereby preventing their owners having to deal with the aftermath.

The song that the preppy barbershop chumps sing in Trading Places (“I bummed Rita and Anita / Mandy in the loo / When I need a blowie done / It’s Mandy down the zoo”) is sung to tune of Love Me Tender.

When you are sharing something out and you 'divvy it', it comes from 'divide'.

Not sure why it also means a bit of a nutter.
