    Before oxygen was present as a gas. The water on the planet arrived in the form of ice, the oxygen we breathe was formed by Cyanobacteria photosynthesising.

    The poor areas of big cities(in the northern hemisphere) tend to be found in the East end. This is due to the prevailing wind generally blowing from West to East - meaning the posh/rich people lived in the West End to avoid the chimney smoke and stench of pollution being blown their way.

    Most barns were painted red because red paint was the cheapest.

    The extra mortar that squeezes out when bricklaying is called a snot.

    Sitting Bull didn't lead the Sioux at the Little Big Horn - it was Crazy Horse.
    Sitting Bull looked after the women & children during the battle.

    In bricklaying a half brick is called a half bat, cut it directly at the flug and its called a Queens closure.

    The chute that kegs and barrels are used to deliver beer is called a slype.

    Scaffolders use fanny clamps.

    The passage ( sheep crawl ) on a dry stane dyke is called a lunky hole.

    I need to get out more 😮

    A brass monkey was a bracket for holding cannonballs on the deck of a ship. When it got cold the brass contracted and the cannonballs fell off.

    Hence the phrase "It's f*****g freezing".

    God did it, so obvious now! That or comets.

    Italian sailors from Genoa where were known as "Genes" by the French wore cotton workpants. These became known as 'a pair of genes' which morphed into 'jeans' in the English language.

    Every second of every day an area of rainforest the size of a football pitch is destroyed (80,000 acres a day, an area the size of Scotland & Wales per year).

    Many astronomers believed Venus was once inhabited and was a planet of lush vegetation until either technology or a natural disaster created a runaway greenhouse effect which destroyed the planet. No observations were possible of Venus due to the thick cloud that covered the entire planet although the Russians made a couple of lander attempts which results were largely seen as disappointing (this was very much seen as another space race between the US and Russia, the first superpower to find life on another planet). Expectations of finding signs of a previous civilisation were high as Venus fell within the "goldilocks" zone of the sun and therefore evidence of liquid water in the form of dry river systems etc were expected to be found. That is until the early 90's and NASA's Magellon probe sent back radar images of the planets surface which revealed a fairly young looking surface in geological terms (judging by impact craters, an estimated age of 800 million years old) and rivers of lava, lava plains, volcanoes. Thus it was determined life was never, and will never be possible on our closest neighbour.

    I think the more recent thinking is that water was present, wet, at the formation of the planet.

    The football club we know and love does not get its name from anything to do with Ireland. It actually comes from the word hibernate.

    It's a well known fact our club goes to sleep in the winter and that's what went wrong last season in our bid for promotion.

    Thankfully we woke up in time to win the Cup 😂

    Easter Road has nothing to do with the Spring festival.
    It was the Eastern Road originally. There was a Western Road which is now Broughton Road & Bonnington Road.

    Gangkhar Puensum in Bhutan is the highest (by elevation) unclimbed mountain in the world.

    Mountains above 6000M are not allowed to be climbed in Bhutan for religious and traditional reasons.

    Repeats of every Top of the Pops featuring The Human League won't be shown on any BBC platform as every episode they appeared on was presented by either Dave Lee Travis or Jimmy Savile.

    I've heard that as well, but as far as I can see there has been no explanation as to how. My point was about oxygen being present as a gas.

    I'm aware the water is made with oxygen, but the water on the earth wasn't made from oxygen from the earth.

    I genuinely don't know the answer. But logically wouldthe oceans not have been green due to being more oxygen than there is now resulting in more algae ???

    There was no life on earth at the time. The oceans were green due to amount of iron in the water. Bacteria then produced oxygen with oxidised the iron, leaving the water we have today.

    The Everly Brothers were both left-handed but their father made them play guitar right-handed.

    WalMart and McDonalds are the 3rd and 4th largest employers in the world; only the armies of the United States and China employ more people

    Barrs who make irn-bru were founded the same year as Hibs.

    Coca-Cola is the number one-selling soft drink everywhere in the world except in Scotland (and the Middle East) where it's irn-bru.
