Natural gas is odorless.

Utility companies add a harmless chemical called mercaptan to give gas that distinctive rotten eggs /sulfer smell , so that you know if you have a leak or have forgotten to turn off the oven properly !!

Do you not mean half is to the north and half is to the south? Lol.

Most American car horns are in the key of F

The phrase "rule of thumb" Is derived from an old English law, which states you can't beat your wife with anything wider then your thumb

The shortest war against England was with Zanzibar in 1896. Zanzibar surrendered after 38 minutes.
Plus, there is nowhere in Britain that is more than 74.5 miles from the sea.

Robinson Brothers in West Bromwich make the chemical "smell." Several decades ago I visited the factory and there was a faint whiff of "gas" everywhere.

It causes a bit of an issue if they have an actual leak.......

Fortunately West Midlands Fire Service have their chemical response centre at Oldbury just a few miles away.

Andy,

The expression "under the thumb" comes from flying birds of prey.

When they are perched on your hand, if you put your thumb on their claw, then they wont try to fly away (so i heard sone years back from an experienced handler of birds)
