    One time we were at BIL's house for a bbq with his friends, and one of his mates was talking about his clean eating or something and how he eats a lot of quinoa, and DH said "isn't it called keen-wah?" And the guy sort of mumbled "yeah, some people pronounce it differently.." then quickly changed the subject

    My rather embarrassing penny-drop moment was a couple of years ago. I've always had pastry mix in the pantry for adding to a quick quiche recipe of my mum's and that was the only thing I ever used it for, because it was years before I suddenly realised I could use it to actually MAKE pastry
    I've literally only ever told my mum about that just recently because I'm so embarrassed!

    haha, my mother actually thought she was eating dolphin meat. I had to explain it to her. I was wondering why she was saying she enjoyed the dolphin meat from the can. ??

    I also didn't know until really recently that the scene in Grease with Kinnicky and Rizzo where he was talking about his '25 cent insurance policy' was actually a condom and not a cheap insurance policy.
    Surprised my DP didn't drive off the road with that one...just read it out to him and both p!ssed our selves laughing..That's a good one!

    I don't know how duh this is but it bends my head.

    The Yellow Cabs number has been 132227 for, like, decades. Then the whole number on the phone represents a letter thing came out in Australia with mobiles in...I want to say late 90s? So, 132227 spells out 13CABS. But it was their number since the 80s.

    HOW DID THEY KNOW?

    I'm assuming it's because the US has been using that system for phone numbers (ie number/3 letters) since the early 80s?

    I thought that too, but...seems like amazing foresight to do it here!

    I'm pretty sure letters have been on the number keys ever since keypads replaces the old circular dial?

    Yeah you're right, they have! I guess it just always seemed to be an American thing to have words as phone numbers so I was surprised they did it so early and also that they still went with 132227 instead of 13 CABS...

    I remembered one of mine! I had a c-section 3.5 years ago, and it wasn't until about 2 weeks ago that I was feeling just above my scar and realised I have a second horizontal scar, internally! I had wondered why a uterine rupture was such a risk for a VBAC, when surely you would see it rupturing on the outside (because I was thinking it was just the one cut therefore just one scar).

    I can kind of understand people who haven't had a c-section not knowing this but the fact that I hadn't figured this out in 3.5 years of having this scar lol.
