    An ex once wanted a lemon in his beer. I said I'd go out to the tree to get one - came back and said none are ripe. He then said a lime would do, I said we don't have limes! He said on the tree. I said that's a lemon tree! He still wouldn't believe me that limes are not unripe lemons until much later on.

    That's how it used to be done in England, but it's not done like that in Australia. Not sure if it still is in England?

    ETA it was done like that in England to make the meat white, as they were contained in the dark.

    Yeah that's more correct. They are more likely to feed them just milk/ milk substitute (yes for cows) to make it a whiter meat.

    While yes it is Calf not Cow it's more a By product of the Milk industry. Farmers don't get milk from male calves at any point in their life. They only need a certain amount of Bulls to Service the females for milk production so Male calves are basically a waste product. They are different meat to a Beef cow so instead of being let to grow & mature they are sent to slaughter young. The Farmers make a greater return on them. In Europe especially whiter veal known as Milk Veal is more expensive so sometimes the calf's diet is altered to reflect this. Because again the Farmer may not want to give up his main income source (milk) to feed the Male calves that will be dinner by 12mths.

    I bought some one day and kept the packet to show dh cos on the back of it it said 'contains dried plums'
    I thought it was so funny they could make such a mistake with the printing on the bag. Dh was shocked at my lack of knowledge lol.

    Merge lines mean person on the right, but just sudden end of lines means person on the left.
    Really? Wow! Although I can't say I've ever seen that situation before. At least I'll know for when I do!

    I'm in SA and I am sure here in the above case of no merge lines it's the person who is in front that has right of way and the other person is to slow to allow them in front

    I have several friend who refuse to believe that Peacocks & Peahens are the Male and Female of Peafowls. Some have heard of Peahens or peafowl, but still believe that peacocks can be either male or female.

    Same in NSW, again I think it was in the nationisation book in 2001.. I really should locate that cause most disputed things like roundabouts, merges, hook turns for cyclists were in there.
