    Analogue clocks are most likely to be photographed at 10:08 for advertisements as it makes them look happy and people are more likely to purchase them.


    Do you think your security can keep you in purity, you will not shake us off above or below. Scottish friction, Scottish fiction

    I know it's sad but I had a look at clocks for sale and 10:08 beats 1:50 about 2 to 1.
    I'm extremely bored today.

    The German phrase "Englisch einkaufen gehen" means "to go English shopping" when translated word for word but really means to go shoplifting.

    Sailing by Rod Stewart was actually a cover. Originally done by The Sutherland Brothers, whoever they are.

    One of the brothers wrote the song, he probably earned far more off the royalties than from his own musical career

    In Computing parlance, eight Bits is called a 'Byte'.

    And half a Byte (four Bits) is called a 'Nibble'.

    I've never heard that before. Even by early 70s standards the production/mix is atrocious. I've heard one-man-bands with better drumming and it sounds like a bass stylophone or something that drones away all through the track.

    Rod definitely did a far better job of it.
