    i found out when i saw a sign saying 'cooked prawns' in a seafood shop and i asked him what a cooked prawn looked like and he showed me a normal one. then i asked to see a raw one. Mind. Blown.

    i also didnt realise they were straight. i thought red and curly was how they got around under water. Its the fact the heads/tails.are still attached that threw me.

    I keep my real butter in a dish in the cupboard in winter. It couldnt quite handle a QLD summer though so its spreadable brands then

    Also, i say 'lost points' but even when i lost my licence the reason was 'accumulation of demerit points'

    I'm pretty sure butter does go rancid when exposed to air and light.

    You could keep it out of the fridge in a French butter dish. The water makes an airtight seal. Wish I could find one in Australia!

    Yes it will go rancid eventually, but it must take a long time as I leave mine in a standard (covered) butter dish through summer here (WA) and no problem - just super gloopy! I think unalted butter turns faster?

    I know most people don't understand this concept - PP mentioned the sensors at lights - they are in the ground and you need to drive onto them. It's why there are 'cuts' in a brand new road at the intersection. I got a taxi once and he kept flashing his lights as he approached intersections to 'trigger' the lights. I used to work nights and knew which intersection needed 1 car to trigger immediately and which needed 2. The ones that needed 2 I'd reverse and roll forward again, otherwise you'd need to wait a few minutes. This is why I go mad when people stop 3m short of the intersection (eg. missing the sensors)... WHY?

    That you have to give way to an ambulance or other emergency services vehicle, including getting off the damn road and into the shoulder if needed
    Forgive any weird substitutions... Silly phone, but I still love it

    Another road related one - that you have to wait for pedestrians to cross the lights before you can turn left.... even if you can sneak through before they get to your side of the road. ARGHHHHHHHH

    I believe you are wrong.

    For a zebra crossing, you must wait - even if the zebra crossing is divided at the island and not a straight line across.

    But if the crossing is merely operated by pedestrian walk/dontwalk signals but not a zebra crossing then you are allowed to drive across whenever someone is not in the way.

    PS: Legal disclaimer just in case I am wrong. The above is not legal advice, merely my understanding as a lay person.
