"You said, crapper! he, he, oh yea..."
 
 
grant228 2014-12-10 15:01:25
OK, it's Thomas Crapper. It's strange how not many people have carried on the name. One hears of Cropper as a last name but very few to none Crappers. There's was a famous Australian Olympic swimmer of the 1950s called Lorraine Crapp. There's another quiz in the making, unfortunate last names!

I know. Mr. Roto Rooter!
 
grant228 2014-12-10 02:12:43
Dave, too easy! I'll let it to someone else. You might have hit on another topic for a quiz - objects that have been named after people.

Here's some related trivia. The toilet originally was referred to by the name of the man who invented it. What was his name?
 
grant228 2014-12-07 14:01:35
Cubs, young Australians are also becoming a little prissy when it comes to saying the word hence the infiltration of "bathroom". Their predecessors were less prudent. Here are some of our more common terms - dunny, dungeon, thunder box, bog, outhouse.
 
lmcubs 2014-12-07 11:08:00
Grant - when I was a little girl, my teachers called the facilities the "Lavatory." Usually it is bathroom or restroom these days. When I was in Tennessee, I saw a sign for the "Comfort Room." Using the word "toilet" always makes the young ones giggle. HA HA - isn't this an interesting conversation?
 
grant228 2014-12-06 06:10:02
Cubs, that sounds a typical Queensland response. It is our "deep north" - the equivalent to your "deep south". I suppose you came across the many terms we have for the toilet? Do you and your compatriots share similar inventiveness?
 
lmcubs 2014-12-05 10:10:13
Grant - I do not know the answer to your question, but it reminded me of an Aussie adventure. I was at the Big Pineapple in Queensland. I asked at the front desk the location of the "restroom." I was shown a room that had a cot in it!! I chuckled to myself, thanked the gal, and later found the toilet on my own! Lesson learned for this Yank on her second week in Australia!
 
grant228 2014-12-05 02:03:18
Gentlemen, at my school someone placed a sign on a staff toilet saying "This bathroom is not for public use". I quickly amended "bathroom" to "toilet" but wondered why Americans call this facility a bathroom when there is rarely a bath in it? It shows the extent of your cultural impact!
 
dave 2014-12-02 12:47:36
I like Ed Harris too Grant.

Good to see you about Dart
 
bill 2014-11-29 10:41:56
Dart, nice to see you back and thanks for quiz on John Madden!
 
bill 2014-11-28 10:37:26
Thanks Grant. Just that I couldn't find a pretty lady to put in the feature today. One of my favorite Ed Harris' flicks is "Radio." Check it out if you get a chance.
 
grant228 2014-11-28 02:31:16
Bill, shame on you. Ed Harris is one of the most interesting actors around. He has that indefinable presence on screen. I was watching the Truman Show last week and he and Jim Carrey were superb. It is a movie that gets better with repeated views. Many wry comments on modern life. I loved him in Apollo 13 where he and his waistcoat were the stars.
 
bill 2014-11-25 22:30:41
Brrrr!

Hope you like my Styx quiz!
 
grant228 2014-11-23 05:37:30
Dave, something strange is happening with weather down here also. Today parts of the state recorded 45 C (113F). It's going to be fiery summer.
 
dave 2014-11-18 18:11:07
The external thermometer in my car read 11 degrees this morning
 
grant228 2014-11-18 02:42:47
Bill, consider yourself lucky. My teacher in Alberta was coping with temps of -21! She's counting down the days until she can get back to a warm climate.
 
bill 2014-11-17 09:38:40
Just had our first touch of snow in SE Michigan. Unseasonably chilly all week here!
 
grant228 2014-11-11 00:43:21
Dave, thanks for the explanation. I thought our ex P M Kevin Rudd must have done something newsworthy. The only AC DC members I know are Bon Scott and the Youngs.
 
dave 2014-11-10 21:32:36
Grant, he was a member of the ban ACDC, and he was arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit murder. I think Bill thought you might have heard of it because it happened in your neck of the woods, NewZealand, where he lives. In any event they've dropped the murder related charge now.
 
grant228 2014-11-09 14:43:47
Bill, I'm sorry to put my ignorance on show but don't know who Phil Rudd is. I'll have to brush up on current events and move on from history.
 
bill 2014-11-09 10:39:59
So Grant, what's your take on the Phil Rudd deal? Why would a guy who has it all, hugely popular and zillions of dollars, need to kill some people? Such strange goings on...
 
bill 2014-11-09 10:36:31
It seems that both parties use that excuse when they lose, Grant!
 
grant228 2014-11-07 16:01:34
Bill, thanks for clarification. That's an interesting concept. Those states obviously don't have preferential voting. I heard Obama excusing the poor performance of the Democrats as the result of poor voter turn out, nothing to do with policies?!
 
bill 2014-11-07 09:41:20
Grant, I think you mean "run off" elections. In select states, if none of the candidates collect 50% of the vote, the top two will have a run off election. This is happening in Louisiana this year. The top two candidates will have a run off on Dec 6th. As the Republican surge is strong this mid-term, all bets are on Bill Cassidy (R) smoking Mary Landrieu (D) in this one.
