What I learned last night..

Last night, I went to a pub quiz near London Bridge, and learned among other things, the following....

The original title for 'Return of the Jedi' was 'Revenge of the Jedi' - a reason for the change is given here.

The original choice to play Indiana Jones was Tom Selleck. He was apparently too busy with Magnum pi. There is a suitable homage here to that great show by a German (where else) fan.

The word 'Wales' is based on an Anglo-Saxon word for 'Foreigners'.

And while I'm here I would like to say that the billboards round London promoting
Elf, are especially horrible. Will Ferrell looks sinister. I'm sure you agree...
