Is it a coincidence 'Mother in law' and 'Woman Hitler' use exactly the same letters?

 

If 'I am' is the shortest sentence in the English language is 'I do' the longest?

Wasn't Teflon invented as part of the space program,, in space wouldn't you WANT the egg to stick to the pan?

Nautical trivia question for the day

 

What is the official difference between a lifejackets and a personal flotation device (pfd)?

 

There is a very specific difference between the two devices .... or rather two very specific differences.

A lifejacket must roll an unconscious person onto their back and lift their mouth and nose 150mm clear of the water. A pfd may do the same thing, and most will roll an unconscious user onto their back, but most won't achieve the 150mm clearance required to be classified as a lifejacket.

 

So, in short, you're absolutely correct BP :)
