Yes, it really happened. Actually, he accused me of doing something improper but no evidence to support such was forthcoming.

AKA, the "west" entrance is farther east than the "east" entrance

Elvis lives
He’s been dead more than 40 years, but there are still those out there convinced that an individual of Rock ‘n Roll faked his own death, and is still alive and well. Rumours that Presley didn’t actually die of heart failure, and instead went into hiding, started shortly after his funeral in 1977. Fans around the world have continued to report Elvis sightings, and in 1989, three individuals were so committed to the conspiracy that they formed The Elvis Sighting Society.

Paul McCartney has been dead since 1966
The world’s biggest secrets can be found when song lyrics are played backwards, at least according to some conspiracy theorists. When the Beatles released their White Album, it didn’t take long for someone to spread the story that if you played the track “Revolution 9” in reverse, you’d hear a voice say, “Turn me on, dead man!” For some reason that was enough to fuel the rumour that Paul McCartney had died in a car crash in 1966, but was replaced by a body double. The remaining band members apparently felt guilty about the ruse, and started putting clues in their music. In reality, McCartney is, of course, alive and well and turned 79 in 2021.


Paul McCartney
Sir Paul McCartney was a member of the Beatles and is still one of the most popular solo performers of all time.

I can help you with that, Doodoo. It is the member from North Putney, Izzix aka Dick Gasket. Westerby might be along later to confirm.

Hope this helps,

Oh, all water under Putney bridge now but a chap called Dick Gasket, who I used to tease, got miffed with me as he said I'd accused him of something. But a search for evidence by myself and the Mods revealed nothing. My guess was that he confused me with someone from another forum as he was quite prolific.

Hang on, it isn't you, is it, Izzie? Are you undercover, old chap?

I like these stories from the Old Testament. Much more pithy than anything from the newer book.

FOOD NOT FOR YOUR DOG

Apples
The flesh of apples is not toxic, but the seeds can be poisonous due to a compound called amygdalin. However, they have to be consumed in large quantities and chewed to be toxic.

The body of Walt Disney is kept frozen under Disneyland
Before his death from lung cancer in 1966, theme park and cartoon mogul Walt Disney oversaw the construction of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at California’s Disneyland. According to conspiracy theorists, the ride isn’t just a popular attraction, but also the place where Disney’s cryogenically frozen body—or possibly just his head—is stored until a time he can be reanimated. While it’s true that Disney was both future-minded and a little unconventional, he was actually cremated and his ashes were placed in a Glendale cemetery.

Mister Rogers was an ace sniper
If it’s hard to believe that Fred Rogers, the kind and soft-spoken face of children’s show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, was actually a Navy SEAL sniper who killed more than 120 people in combat, that’s because it’s simply not true.

“Evidence” of the host’s military past included his preference for long-sleeved shirts, since his arms bore tattoos of his extreme kill count. The source of the myth may be that there was another Fred Rogers who was, in fact, a Marine sharpshooter and the two identities were simply confused. The Navy SEALs actually issued a statement online confirming the host had never been in the military.

Stanley Kubrick faked the moon landing
There’s no doubt that the 1969 moon landing, in its time, probably seemed like the stuff of science fiction. But the sheer magnificence of this historical event has made many conspiracy theorists believe it never happened, and that it was, instead, a fabrication by famed director Stanley Kubrick. The government, according to the rumour, hired Kubrick to stage the NASA landing, but the filmmaker later revealed the true nature of the fraud through veiled messages in his film The Shining. Any evidence of this outlandish theory has been disproven, but that doesn’t stop conspiracy theorists from sticking to their version of events.

PIZZA


Pizza of the past
Pizza, in some form or another, dates back thousands of years. In the 6th century BC, Persian soldiers used to bake flatbreads with cheese and dates on top of their battle shields. And in ancient Greece, a flatbread called plakous was eaten, which was flavoured with ingredients like herbs, onion, cheese and garlic. All across the ancient Mediterranean world, there are references to different flatbreads which are still eaten today and could be the early origins of pizza: focaccia, Greek pitta, lepinja in the Balkans and manakish in the Levant.

Ancient pizza in the Aeneid?
There’s an early reference to something resembling pizza in books three and four of the Aeneid, the epic poem written by Virgil (around 19 BC). Celaeno, the Harpy queen from Greek mythology, foretold that the Trojans would not find peace until they ate their tables. In book four, Aeneas and his men eat a meal consisting of round cakes topped with vegetables. They eat the bread (or early form of pizza?) and realise this is what Celaeno had predicted.

Did pizza originate in China?
The origins of pizza are quite complicated, and one popular story is that pizza and pasta originated in China. The legend goes that explorer Marco Polo tried a dish called cong you bing (spring onion pancakes) which at the time was a bread dish filled with cheese and other ingredients. When he was back in Italy, he tried to find a chef who could make the dish and after several failed attempts, eventually suggested putting the ingredients on top of the bread, rather than inside it. Lo and behold, pizza was born. However, historical evidence points to this being a myth.



The first record of the word 'pizza'
The first known record of the word ‘pizza’ was in AD 997. Food culture historian Giuseppe Nocca revealed his findings back in 2015. The reference was discovered on a notarial document written in Latin from Gaeta, a city in southern Italy. The document demanded payment for, "12 pizzas, a pork shoulder, and a pork kidney on Christmas Day, and 12 pizzas and a couple of chickens on Easter Day." It’s not however known what a pizza would have been at this time.

DURIAN

Durian was believed to be from the region of Borneo and Sumatra, they grew wild along the Malay peninsula, and was commonly cultivated in a wide region from India to New Guinea.

400 years ago, it was traded across present-day Myanmar, and was actively cultivated especially in Thailand and South Vietnam.

The earliest known European reference to the durian is the record of Niccolò Da Conti, who travelled to Southeastern Asia in the 15th century. The Portuguese Physician Garcia de Orta also described durians in an article that he published in 1563.

In 1741, the German botanist Georg Eberhard Rumphius published a book, which provide detailed and accurate account of durians for over a century.

During the early stages of its taxonomical study, there was some confusion between durian and the soursop, for both of these species had thorny green fruit. It is also interesting to note the Malay name for the soursop is Durian Belanda, meaning Dutch Durian
In the 18th century, Johann Anton Weinmann considered the durian to belong to Castaneae as its fruit was similar to the horse chestnut.

Durian had also been planted in the Americas but confined to botanical gardens. The first seedlings were sent from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, to Auguste Saint-Arroman of Dominica in 1884.

In southeastern Asia, the durian has been cultivated for centuries at the village level, probably since the late 18th century, and commercially since the mid-20th century.

In My Tropic Isle, Australian author and naturalist Edmund James Banfield tells how, in the early 20th century, a friend in Singapore sent him a durian seed, which he planted and cared for on his tropical island off the north coast of Queensland.

Since the early 1990s, the domestic and international demand for durian in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region has increased significantly, partly due to the increasing affluence of Asia.

BAD FOR THE KIDNEYS


Caffeine is a natural stimulant, found in many different foods and drinks like coffee, tea, cocoa, and chocolate. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) consider caffeine to be both a drug and food additive, and it is likely to be the world’s most popular stimulant. According to the 2013 online survey conducted by the National Coffee Association, over 587 million cups of coffee are drunk per year in the US alone. But even though caffeine is a popular pick-me-up, there can be detrimental side effects.

According to data published by the National Kidney Foundation, smoking cigarettes causes 1 in 5 deaths in the US every year and is thought to be the most preventable risk factor for many harmful diseases and illnesses. One cigarette alone contains over 4800 chemicals, and 69 of those are known carcinogens.
Not only are smokers at a much higher risk of many various types of cancer like lung, bladder and mouth cancers, smoking also increases the risk of lung and heart disease, as well as pregnancy complications, stroke, and kidney problems.

In perhaps the greatest self-own of them all, The Washington Post published an article on Monday which argues that George Washington University must be renamed in order to address systemic racism and inequality.
By those standards, The Washington Post should follow suit and rename their own publication if they are truly serious about racial justice in America, as they claim to be.

Abortion is good for the economy, who would have thunk.
“Eliminating the right of women to make decisions when and whether to have children would have very damaging effects on the economy and would set women back decades,” Yellen claimed.

1690's American Colonists

Bayberry, Tallow and Whale Oil Candles
In the days before electricity, candles were a fixture in colonial homes. Many people made their own candles by boiling berries from the bayberry bush and skimming the thick greenish wax off the top. Farmers and hunters also collected and saved fat from animals to make tallow candles. But the brightest, longest-lasting (and most expensive) candles were made from spermaceti, a waxy material found in the head of a sperm whale.
Hornbook
Though many boys learned to read and write from their parents or local ministers, and others received a more formal education, that wasn’t considered necessary for girls. Many colonial-era children learned the alphabet, numbers and other basics (like the Lord’s Prayer) by using a hornbook, a sheet of paper mounted on a tablet of wood, leather or bone, and covered by a thin strip of transparent horn.

Trencher
When it came to setting the colonial table, one of the most important objects was the trencher. These thick, rectangular wooden dishes had hollowed-out spaces in the middle for food. Colonists ate directly from the simple plates, often with their hands, as utensils (other than spoons) didn’t become commonplace until the 18th century.

About 100 or so years later a young candle maker from Herefordshire left to make a new life in America. He met and fell in love with and married a young wench name of Olivia Norris. Olivia had a sister who was married to another immigrant by the name of James Gamble. Taking their father in laws advice (and no doubt some of his money) the two lads formed a candle making company in Cincinnati ........ and the rest as they say is history for Mr Procter and Mr Gamble
