    Sea level just ain't level - it changes with the tides and is controlled by the gravity of the moon

    The calculated sea level is the average highest tide level in the closest body of ocean to your position.

    I'm pretty well known in the family for saying some pretty daft things!

    Nephew: What's that animal over there?
    Me: Oh, that's a giant guinea pig.
    SIL: Umm no, that would be a wombat!

    This is a bit silly, but was a revelation for me the other day.

    I found out what 'Motor Boating' means and by that I don't mean the marine activity.

    I didn't know till a few yrs ago that a snake bites you with its teeth. I thought the 2 bite marks were from it's forked tongue lol.

    It got me thinking about other things people just seem to know that I didn't! Does this happen to anyone else?
    Do you know that if you touch the time on the top of the screen and drag it down, it shows you the weather and all sorts

    Go figure, I've known about Pearl necklace for years and way before Pearl Jam (the band) too, and chocolate starfish (and the band that named themselves this as well), but not the Motor boating, lol!
