I already had a pretty good grasp on this, but still fascinating, what is the U.K.?

I suspect my fellow U.S. citizens sometimes forget we were just another rebellious territory at one time.

You can't resign as an MP.

Nope, sorry, you must represent your elected constituents, even if you don't want to.   This also brings into focus the history of a country which has thousands of years of history.     Can I get a hip hip hooray for Jolly Old England?

I was trying to remember the Greek character from legend who would stretch or cut people to fit his bed.  

Procrustes!

This ends your Greek legend for today.       Your homework is to use Procrustean in a sentence.

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
To blow up the King and Parli'ment.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England's overthrow;
By God's providence he was catch'd (or by God's mercy*)
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holla boys, Holla boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
And what should we do with him? Burn him!

As most of the people on my friend's list know, I despise the morons like Jenny McCarthy who spread their stupidity onto the rest of us.   But I love people who can communicate important ideas in a clear way.

As Penn and Teller have done.   As with most Penn and Teller, the language is coarse.

Ah ha!

When borax is heated to 60 degrees C, it creates hydrogen peroxide!    So you need to use warm water if you're using it as a detergent booster, or doesn't do much good.

I learned this at http://www.periodicvideos.com/# under boron.   A treasure trove on interesting tidbits, I tell you.
