Superior to ordinary mayonnaise, Danish remoulade can be very fat (up to 80%), but leaner versions are not hard to find. It's usually made with mayonnaise mixed with lots of tiny bits of cauliflower, cabbage and cucumber-(pickles) but no garlic.

Belgian magazine Le Soir Illustre claimed in their November 1979 issue (No. 2471 on page 26) that the French inventor Lucien Rosengart (1880 – 1976) came up with the game of table soccer in the 1930s when he was looking for things to keep his grandchildren entertained during the cold winter months. He called the game “babyfoot” instead of foosball. Employed at the Citroen automobile factory, Rosengart is credited with inventing the minicar, front-wheel drive, and the seat belt, among other things.

and a writer for Crank, an early-20th-century periodical
this is ethel voynich, is the daughter of the inventor of boolean algebra and the wife of the polish revolutionary and bibliophile that the voynich manuscript is named after
Her mother decided to send her to live in Lancashire with her brother, believing that it would be good for her health. Described as "a religious fanatic and sadist", who regularly beat his children, he apparently forced Ethel to play the piano for hours on end. Ethel returned to London at the age of ten. She became withdrawn, dressing in black and calling herself "Lily". At the age of eighteen, she gained access to a legacy. This allowed her to study piano and musical composition at the Hochschule für Musik in Berlin, which she attended between 1882 and 85. During this period she became increasingly attracted to revolutionary politics. Back in London she learned Russian from Sergei Kravchinski, known as Stepniak who encouraged her to go to Russia. From 1887 to 1889 she worked as a governess in St. Petersburg, where she stayed with Kravchinski's sister-in-law, Preskovia Karauloff. Through her, she became associated with the revolutionary Narodniks.[6

On October 9, 2001, Durst was arrested in Galveston shortly after body parts belonging to his elderly neighbor, Morris Black, were found floating in Galveston Bay. He was released on $300,000 bail the next day. Durst missed a court hearing on October 16 and a warrant was issued for his arrest on a charge of bail jumping. On November 30, he was caught inside a Wegmans supermarket in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, after trying to shoplift Band-Aids, a newspaper and a chicken-salad sandwich with roasted red peppers on a pumpernickel baguette, even though he had $500 cash in his pocket.

On 19 August, the prime minister wrote an inflammatory letter to the President of the European Council, hilariously describing the agreement that he had previously voted for as "anti-democratic", and not consistent with his interpretation of "sovereignty". Despite the backstop explicitly being agreed as a temporary measure, he continued to highlighted that it was "inconsistent" with the UKs desired final destination for it's relationship with the EU. He also suggested that, despite Northern Ireland voting to remain in the EU, that this agreement would somehow undermine the Northern Ireland Peace process. Following much laughter, Mr. Tusk reminded Mr. Johnson that those opposing the arrangement without "realistic alternatives" supported re-establishing a hard border on the island of Ireland.

Richards is a keen fan of shepherd's pie, a British traditional dish. Stuart Cable, the ex-drummer of Stereophonics, recollected that he was once confronted by Richards because he had served himself a piece of the shepherd's pie meant for Richards. The dish was also mentioned by Richards in his autobiography, advising readers to add more onions after cooking the meat filling to enhance the pie's flavour.

Although one of the highest bridges in the US, exactly how high the main span is above ground still remains up in the air. When it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1967, this distance was cited as 650’ over the Rio Grande. And today that number is still widely used. In 2010 however, the Highest Bridges Web Site came out with a substantially lower (565’) figure. This height was most likely derived using a laser range finder but the site did not specifically reference it that way. Wikipedia used this 565’ figure in 2012 when updating its List of bridges in the United States by height, but kept the 650’ (200 meter) figure for the bridge in its Rio Grande del Norte National Monument article. And then in 2015, a height of 600’ appeared on the scene.

While the provinces' delegates spent little time, if any, in settling on Canada as the name for the new country, others proposed a variety of other names:
Anglia – the medieval Latin name for England Albionoria – 'Albion of the north' Borealia – from borealis, the Latin word for 'northern'; compare with Australia Cabotia – in honour of Italian explorer John Cabot, who explored the eastern coast of Canada for England Colonia Efisga – an acronym of English, French, Irish, Scottish, German, Aboriginal Hochelaga – an old name for Montreal Laurentia Mesopelagia – 'land between the seas' New Albion Norland Superior Tupona – derived from The United Provinces of North America Transatlantica Ursalia – 'place of bears' Vesperia – 'land of the evening star' Victorialand – in honour of Queen Victoria

The French-language Wikipédia article on bilingualism in Ottawa is dramatically different from the English one and may be the most opinionated Wikipedia article I've ever read, concluding:
Enfin, cette situation linguistique du français à Ottawa est humiliante pour de nombreux francophones du Canada (et en particulier ceux qui ne parlent pas l'anglais, nombreux au Québec) qui se rendent dans la capitale fédérale. Cela risque de favoriser donc le séparatisme québécois.[réf. nécessaire]"Ultimately, the linguistic status of French in Ottawa is humiliating for the many Canadian francophones who find themselves in the national capital (especially those who do not speak English, who are numerous in Quebec). This may encourage Quebec separatism ."

The album went head to head with heavy metal band Slipknot's All Hope Is Gone on the Billboard 200 albums chart, seeing that both albums were released on August 22, 2008, therefore both albums were competing for the number one spot on the Billboard 200. LAX ended up debuting at number two on the Billboard 200, at first, it looked like LAX had debuted ahead of All Hope Is Gone by 13 copies. Initially, Billboard published an article stating that The Game had secured the top spot with a margin of 13 units, in what was described as the "closest race for number one since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking Data in 1991". Slipknot's labels Warner Music Group and Roadrunner Records asked for a SoundScan recount, a historic first. Nielsen proceeded to the recount, which placed LAX at number two with 238,382 copies, and Slipknot in the first position with 239,516 copies scanned, a margin of 1,134 copies. After the recount 12 hours later, the article was rewritten and Slipknot was awarded the number one spot
