    Oh...and how even though ive watched the back to the future trilogy at least once a year since 1985, i only realised last year that the jennifers are two different actors in movie I and II. And that was because someone told me while we were watching the films.

    I now buy milk from a dairy that values the welfare of its animals.
    Yep, this was me too!! I had never given it any thought before until I visited a dairy farm.

    Bloody hell, I'm now really embarrassed because I've always thought it was "gibbed". Got gibbed at the shops today, got gibbed by the weather, etc. You mean it's "gipped"?! In reference to the Romany Gypsies?! I'm more stupid than I thought.

    "Jipped" is a uk term which doesn't mean ripped off. Means antagonise. So it's not casual racism used that way.

    Gypped is to be ripped off and is derived from gypsy.
