    Sorry to kill the Mussleburgh vibe but does that title not belong to Bruntsfield Links?

    Royal Burgess also have some claim if I remember correctly.
    1500's for Musselburgh in Guiness Book Of Records as oldest. 1700's for Bruntsfield.

    The oldest trophy to be played for in golf is in the Royal Musselburgh Golf Club (I believe).

    Bruntsfield Links wouldn't be classed as a golf course now.

    It is a very old club but the course at Barnton is not that old (1894).

    A defibrillator doesn't restart your heart - it stops it.

    Actually, I suppose that's not utterly useless to know.

    Surely if you added a day "onto" the 24th, the extra day would be the 25th? :-)

    I'm conscious of my previous misunderstanding of leap seconds when posting this...

    The 24th day lasted 48 hours. In order to avoid confusion we don't call the extra day the 24th we just keep adding numbers on which gives us a 29th every 4 years.

    We have an extra day every 4 years because the world takes 365.25 days to circle the sun.

    I'm in the "eh?" camp about the 24th, though......

    That still wouldn't make the 24th the "extra day" though.

    They didn't have a 29th back then. Every 4 years the 24th lasted 48 hours. In some countries like Denmark the day when women are supposed to be allowed to ask the man to marry them is on the 24th rather than the 29th.

    Only half true, it can also be used to start the heart off again

    It resets , or stops , an irregular heartbeat.

    You would be horrified at some of the examples of "life saving" defibs I have encountered.

    I used the things for 10 years on a nearly daily basis. I understand that the shock stops the electro mechanical chaos that occurs during fibrillation, but after it has actually done that it doesn't play an active role in restarting the heart. At best it can be used to confirm if a normal sinus rhythm has been achieved.

    You can have a total lack of a heartbeat without flatlining, the heart is effectively on idle but not doing anything. A de fib will then work to start it off again.

    Think you might mean "fibrillation". The heart is still actually beating but instead of the normal circa 80 beats per minute it is in a state of electrical/mechanical chaos and has a rhythm of up to about 600bpm. Because of the high frequency the heart is ineffectual and the chambers can't circulate blood around the body. Defibrillation allows the heart to recalibrate to it's normal rhythm by stopping the heart momentarily. When all goes well then the heart will restart on its own, the defib doesn't do that.

    Bit like factory reset.

    Neptune and Uranus used to be the opposite way around, meaning Neptune was originally closer to the sun than Uranus.

    The World Series in baseball isn't about being champions of the 'world'. The trophy was put up by a newspaper called "The World".
