🍀UNDER THE MISTLETOE Christmas! A great day for our #FunFact rubric. 👉 Mistletoe — по-русски омела — полупаразитное вечнозеленое кустарниковое растение: крепится к ветвям растения-хозяина, от которого получает воду и минеральное питание. Омела токсична, но ей всегда приписывали лечебные (иногда даже чудодейственные) свойства и пытались использовать, например, при лечении эпилепсии. Знаменитый врач и алхимик эпохи Возрождения Парацельс собирал омелу, выращенную на черепах повешенных. Mistletoe круче ёлки. Ещё со времён друидов (V - II века до н.э.) в Англии украшали омелой жилище в день зимнего солнцестояния для привлечения удачи. Позже стали делать это на Christmas day, обычно подвешивая омелу под потолком. Another name of mistletoe is kissing bough, ветка поцелуев. В XIX веке стала популярна традиция: персону, случайно оказавшуюся под висящей веткой омелы, позволялось поцеловать любому 💋. Такие дела. Такое вот незаслуженно утратившее широкое применение вызывающее поцелуи растение-паразит.

Traveling in a fried-out Kombi On a hippie trail, head full of zombie I met a strange lady, she made me nervous She took me in and gave me breakfast She said: "Do you come from a land down under Where women glow and men plunder? Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder? You better run, you better take cover" Buying bread from a man in Brussels Six foot four, full of muscle I said, "Hey, do you speak-a my language?" He just smiled and gave me a Vegemite sandwich And he said: "I come from a land down under Where beer does flow and men chunder Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder? You better run, you better take cover" Get down Lying in a den in Bombay With a slack jaw, and not much to say I said to the man, "Are you trying to tempt me? Because I come from the land of plenty" And he said: "Do you come from a land down under, oh yeah, yeah Where women glow and men plunder? Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder? You better run, you better take cover" Living in a land down under...

Сегодня у Кости день рождения! Костю любят в России. Ещё более горячо его любят в Австралии, которая и стала причиной костиного прозвища — Thunder from Down Under. 👉 DOWN UNDER — это, как все уже догадались, Австралия. #etymology: The nickname Down Under came as a result of the European explorers who were looking for a land located below the continent of Asia. One of the famous explorers of the beginning of XIX century was Matthew Flinders. He was part of the team that coined the name "Down Under" with reference to Australia. This name had become much more popular in 1980, after the song by an Australian rock band Men at Work (чем-то схожи с нашей Дюной начала 90х). 👇

💬— I am not the safe choice. The safe choice for you would be HHM. I believe, however, that I am...the right choice. — Why? — That suit you're wearing...did you buy it off the rack? — Please don't tell me it looks like I did. — If it did, I wouldn't have asked. So why do you prefer a tailor-made suit? Because it fits you and you alone. Because each and every stitch was fretted over with you in mind. Either you fit the jacket... or the jacket fits you. — What if I want a whole warehouse full of suits? That's a hell of a lot of sewing. How's one single tailor gonna get that job done? — I know your bank's needs in regard to this expansion inside and out. Having Mesa Verde as my sole client will take up the entirety of my attention, to be sure. But if this were beyond my abilities, I wouldn't be throwing my hat in the ring. I would not waste your time. Or mine. 👆btw, a good example of Conditional

◼️THROWING YOUR HAT INTO THE RING 👉 To throw your hat in the ring — бросить вызов, показать что собираешься победить и надрать задницы соперникам (или проблеме, которую вызываешься решить). She's really throwing her hat in the ring and trying to participate in Russian elections? Well, good luck in prison. #etymology: Ring здесь не кольцо, а боксёрский ринг (который, кстати, раньше был круглым, из-за чего и получил своё название). Ринги для поединков в Англии ставили на площади, вокруг собиралась толпа. Готов сразиться или хорошенько получить — кидаешь шляпу на ринг. Первое упоминание hat into the ring датируется XIXв — в одном из выпусков 1805г журнала The Sporting Magazine.
