Yes, I was strangely drawn to that :oops: :facepalm: .

Wiki Quote, "Sperm oil is a waxy liquid obtained from sperm whales. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, sperm oil was prized as an illuminant for its bright, odorless flame and as a lubricant for its low viscosity and stability."

Knee length socks used to be referred to as stockings, usually worn with plus fours,

Note to self: must remember to pack my revolver next time I'm cycling through the brigand-infested, less civilized areas of Europe - like Streatham High Street and Tower Hamlets. Possibly Westminster and Whitehall too. ;)

Hey! Streatham High road has an independent wine bar and TWO M&S food stores now.

What, no aeropress?

By Jove, that man, I stand corrected on Streatham: once infamous for acid attacks, it isn't even in the top eight London boroughs for violent youth crime now. Westminster is worse! http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/e ... 89816.html With a wine bar and two M&S food stores Streatham might even become a brigand-free zone.
