If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle. If the horse has one front leg in the air the person died as a result of wounds received in battle. If the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural causes.

It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month or what we know today as the honey moon.

In ancient England, a person could not have sex unless you had consent of the King (unless you were in the Royal Family). When anyone wanted to have a baby, they got
consent of the King, the King gave them a placard that they hung on their door while they were having sex. The placard had F...U...C...K... (with the other letters
in!) Fornication Under Consent of the King" on it. Now you know where that came from.

In Scotland, a new game was invented. It was entitled Gentlemen Only Ladies Forbidden. Thus the word GOLF entered into the English language.
