This debunks a metaphor about gold fish having short memory. It’s simply not true. So if somebody ever mocks you saying you have ‘goldfish memory’ (happened to me many times), think of it s a compliment.
This is a story about how I emailed into a bakery chain in London to request that they make their croissants bigger.
A few days ago emailed some feedback into the management team of PAUL, a French bakery chain in London where I buy my breakfast. I emailed because I wasn’t happy about the appearance (and particularly the size) of their croissants. I simply suggested that they should make them bigger. Here is the email I wrote and the picture I attached to the email.
Subject: Can they get any bigger?
I am a regular at Paul, the Strand Branch, where I buy – like many others – a cup of tea and a piece of pastry every morning. I like the quality, however, the appearance (size) of your croissants could be better. More people would buy them if they were bigger. Thanks

It was acceptable to walk pigs in London back in the days. In this picture, a drove of pigs is crossing Camden Road in the north of London. The animals were likely taken towards Caledonian Market on North Road. The market used to be the largest in North London.
It’s very difficult to picture a scene like this anywhere in London these days.
Bonus fact: A group of pigs is called a drift or drove.
…its acceleration is 10,000 times greater than gravity. Moving through water, it reaches a top speed of 50 miles per hour. It creates a pressure wave that boils the water in front of it, creating flashes of light and immensely destructive bubbles. The club reaches its target in just three thousandths of a second, and strikes with the force of a rifle bullet.
