v hot in Lancashire too and what's worse is that I had meetings out all day - had to wear clothes!

Maybe we Brits need a "weather in recovery" forum.

Boy, its so f:@king HOT in Kansas. The high is expected to be 101 and it's not a dry heat either -- with the dew point it will feel like 110!

I feel for ya Five......

Okay, this is totally OT but where does the term Fag come from? When we say that in the US, it's bad! Fag break here does not mean Smoke break.

Dont know about the fag thing. Paul???

It means homosexual in the US. Tricky for me saying things out there like 'I have just had a fag'.

Yup - and to me it's a derogatory term for homosexual. I think to most in the US it is. I was just curious. I remember the first time I heard some use that term for smoking -- and I was so confused.

Blake -- steamed vegetables? LOL That cracked me up! What type of veggie?

I see - yeah, it has got a certain venom.

It is for smoking. 'Fags' are smokes. I use it so much because cigggerettetess is such a hard word to spell.

Yeah -- cigggerettetess -- it's a toughy for sure! I know Fags are smokes - now I know that but didn't used to. I was just curious how it came about. I'm not offended by it when I know someone is using it as a smoke.

I've never had a fag but I smoke way too much. I've had a lesbian, but not while smoking.
seriously, we've been together for 8 years.

Alright - what's knackered? I seriously need a dictionary.

Nope. People in England mean when they say knackered they mean 'tired'. But a Knacker yard is where horses go to dispense of their...er...parts.

Nope - the horse one is wrong. In horse world knackers are either horses only fit for the knackers yard (YARD where nuts are chopped off and in the old days horses stepped into a new career as adhesives) OR Knackers can be the testicles (eg a male horse with no knackers is a gelding!).

I think 'Knackered' meaning tired came from the word being used for broken down horses (signifying their fate and future relationship with envelopes).

These days butchers no longer castrate horses - the vet does it but places where horses are slaughtered for meat are still refered to as 'knackers yard'!!

It's an old world we live in.....

AND IT IS TOO BLOODY HOT!!!
