RE: unbelievable facts

amazing facts:

1. 97% of all facts are based on fictional whimsies.

2. The phrase "Spick and Span" is derived from the ship building industry. Spick is a bastardisation of the word Spike, and refers to the large nails emloyed in fastening wooden hulls that would still be on show when a boat was newly constructed. Spans are the lengthways cuts in timbers made with a shaving hook, chisel or planing blade. On a new boat the Spikes and Spans were the obvious signs of its freshness and it was thus "Spick and Span."

3.The average time taken for somebody to reply to a thread on the general forum is about 10 months.
