340: Wednesday Wonderings

YHA Nottingham
I got in from work yesterday and a wedding invite had come in the post. There’s recommended accommodation in the invite but I had a quick look to see how far the local Youth Hostel was from the reception. The question in my mind was, did we want to pay more and stay closer to the reception or have a slightly longer drive and pay less….

Telephone Box Pub
While watching Heston’s Fantastical Food this week, the pub in a telephone box came up in conversation. I ended up looking for a web link about it.

Sociopath/Psychopath
I missed out on how it came up in conversation but as we sat down for dinner yesterday, Our Sidekick asked me what a sociopath was. I thought I knew but couldn’t really explain so checked again. So what is the difference between a sociopath and a psychopath. A sociopath has a personality disorder marked with antisocial behaviour whereas a psychopath is a person with an antisocial personality disorder manifested in certain behaviours without empathy or remorse. Apparently there is a distinct difference but both sound the same.

VF Medical Abbreviation
I finished reading “You Had Me At Hello” by Mhairi McFarlane today (99p bargain from iBooks!) early this morning as I couldn’t sleep. At one point it mentions watching a medical drama and someone going into VF. Well I love my medical dramas and couldn’t remember what it meant. I went off and googled it. VF stands for Ventricular Fibrillation.

Royal Albert Hall
When we got to The Messiah from Scratch on Sunday we were telling two of the OM Team all about the hall. I learnt interesting things like the Royal Albert Hall is 73 metres tall, it opened in March 1871 and The Proms started in 1941.
