London Still pays  rent to the Queen on a property it leased in the 11th century. Every year a ceremony is held at the Royal courts of Justice and the city hands over its annual rent:- A Knife, An Axe, 6 horseshoes, and 61 nails  to Barbara Janet Fontaine, the Queen’s Remembrancer, the oldest judicial position in England. The job was created in the 12th century to keep track of all that was owed to the crown.

No one knows exactly where these two pieces of land are located anymore, but for hundreds of years the city has been paying rent on them. The rate, however, has not changed—the same objects have been presented for hundreds of years.

I love the traditions of England. Like no other country upholds its history like the UK.

 This striking volcanic plume Shiprock was formed around 30 million years ago, developing as a plug within the vent of an active volcano. Over time, the rest of the volcano eroded away, leaving the  jagged outcrop all alone in a vast expanse of plain. At over 1500 feet, it’s the tallest structure for miles and miles.

The structure is an epicenter of legend within the Navajo culture. “the rock with wings,” myth says that the Shiprock was a piece of land that became a bird, carrying the ancestral people of the Navajo on its back. At sundown, the enormous creature settled in its current desert location and promptly turned back to stone

Although the steep, perilous sides of the Shiprock were once considered a great prize among rock climbers, human ascents have been expressly off-limits since 1970, in accordance with Navajo custom.

There is a bike lock that is designed to make would be thieves sick. When someone cuts 30% of the way into a Skunklock, it releases a pressurized gas that immediately induces vomiting and causes difficulty breathing, symptoms similar to the effects of a pepper spray. Great for bicycles and motorbikes.

3. A new study finds a man’s memory fades faster with age than a woman’s. The study, published in JAMA Neurology, found that everyone’s memory skills and brain volume begin to deteriorate after age 30 but memory worsens faster in men than it des in women after age 40.
These changes are NOT linked to the brain-plaque build up typical of Alzheimer’s disease but is simply part of normal aging the researchers said.

6.James Dean died when his Porsche Spyder sports car crashed in 1955. The car was taken to a garage, where the engine slipped out and fell onto a mechanic, shattering both of his legs.
The engine was then bought by a doctor who put it in his car and died in a car crash. Another driver in that same race was killed in his car,which had Dean’s driveshaft fitted into it. When the shell of Dean’s Porsche was later repaired and put on display, the showroom burned down.
Exhibited again in Sacramento, it fell of the stand on to a visitor, breaking his hip. Finally the car mysteriously broke into 11 pieces sitting on steel supports.

This is an excellent idea especially with theatre tickets or even flight tickets so you are not dealing with bits of paper.

This is also a very wise suggestion.  It saves face if you never have to explain why  you did not get a job. If no one knows you have nothing to tell.

I never really lock my bike as I figure most thieves are to lazy to ride a bike and bikes are so cheap to buy these days why would they want to steal it. Unless it is one of those fancy bikes then you would probably want to keep it thief proof but if it is why would you want to even ride it to a place where you would have to lock it.

You would have to be a bit desperate to use doritos but sometimes there may be a call for desperate measures especially if it is cold.
