    The Random Odd Thoughts Thread..aka ROTT 9th Oct 16 at 8:06 AM
    The random Odd Thoughts Thread is a thread for random odd thoughts.

    Eg........

    I think that the letter U should come after Q in the alphabet.

    It is joined at the hip to Q in words, so they must get traumatised by being split apart in the alphabet, a bit like swans wot mate for life.

    Never Pyxis..However your post did get me wondering if anyone has ever been given an 'Iron Rack' for Christmas.

    Reason being is I bought my Nan one in 1971 which she shoved away in a cupboard and never used..She broke my heart. It was a long time ago, I'm over it.

    My point is I have never seen an 'Iron Rack' since.

    Now I know you meant a rack to store an iron. What a thoughtful grandson you are.


    My grandson bought me a lovely spectacles case last Christmas, I keep my throat lozenges in it, by the bedside.

    When advertising penis enlargement cream they always seem to use a photo of a well honed bloke showing off his manly chest and six-pack stomach, are these the kind of men that are in need of the enlargement cream?

    I was washing some fruit and some tomatoes in a bowl in the sink today.

    Now, I knew that apples are less dense than pears, so apples will float but pears will sink, and they did.

    What was rather interesting, though, was that while the biggest Bramley apples floated, my small cherry tomatoes all sank!

    So apples are even less dense than cherry tomatoes!

    You could have knocked me down with a feather!

    If a person has been deaf since birth, what language do they think in?

    I can remember a time, when I was small, when I couldn't think to myself in words, IYSWIM.
    Can't remember what age I was, but I remember telling my mother.


    Maybe deaf/mutes think in pictures? At least until they learn some sort of signage or to read words?

    Am trying to remember the Helen Keller story.
