There is a TV advert with a skateboarding Churchill-type dog. It passes a row of shops with "Queen's Arcade" above them. There is an Antiques shop, a Fine Arts shop, a Travel shop and a shop with...

I have just learned that the Russian word 'mir' can mean 'world' or 'peace'. How can a Russian know what is meant when he sees the word (in Cyrillic characters)? How can one word have two such...

I have an old calculator powered by two AA batteries. The display is hard to see, but when you hold the calculator at the right angle the display appears, but then it disappears. It will do...

I have been quoted a level pension for my wife guaranteed for 5 years of £1532 p.a. If I want it to be index-linked it will begin at £770 p.a. She is 60, with no health problems apart from...

I'd like to know what £1000 20 years ago would be equivalent to today. I've been online, of course, but the calculators don't give me what I want to know. To be clear, what I want to know is the...
