    1. That must have been during the battle of Chester. Didn't know what year but found it on the interweb.

    You're likely safe from Google on the cow manure and philosopher one though - too many hits.

    INTERNET. :grumpy: What is with people starting to call the internet the interweb? I've seen it a few times and it makes me want to rap them on the knuckles.

    Re: Questions

    Calling it the interweb is ace, though more precisely it should be "t'interweb" in a Yorkshire accent. 'Interthing' is a pretty good synonym.

    I knew about the battle of Chester already; I just found the year (or years) on the interweb.

    "2. Where can a Roman emperor be found with 90km diameter."

    You sure it's km? My google search keeps trying to correct it to mm. The only km hit I get is this PF thread...


    EDIT -- Ouch! Evo, cut it out. I didn't even mention the inter-whatever! All I said was "google"...

    Here you go: Julius was 90km wide

    My guesses would be Gandhi or Pliny.

    :rofl:

    I don't think I could say interweb for a whole week. :uhh: :biggrin:

    (Actually, I thought it was a British thing since it seems it's the Brits calling it the interweb usually. Sort of like their answerphone contraptions...is voicemail the same in both English languages?)

    Re: Questions

    Interweb would be more descriptive as it branches in any old direction not a grid like pattern.
    Or even it is chaotic , so may be intermess would be better.
