    FYI ...

    The questions came from my "MENSA Mighty Mind Benders" book. 1995 UK edition.

    Spent way too much time with way too many Brits not to know about pish-tosh and a few other terms not fit to publish here. One of them owns a quarter of a keep outside London.

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.
