    What did the River Thames back then smell like: sewer sludge?

    @TEMPLO S.U.D.

    The weight of water is 62.42 pounds/foot^3.

    Using 2000 pounds per ton, the largest blue whales are 400,000 pounds.

    Dividing through, that turns out to be 6,408.2 cubic feet.

    That’s a cube of water almost 18’ 7" on a side.

    Put another way, that’s just over 1 2/3 typical 53 feet long 18-wheeler trailers full of water.

    This source says that Parliament was actually suspended.


    @ TEMPLO S.U.D. You are correct.

    I remember a river that caught on fire here in the US back in the 60’s just do not remember what city it was in.

    It was in Cleveland, and the river was the Cuyahoga river … late 60’s IIRC.

    With a nose like that he was probably worried about the rotten things much further afield, like in the state of Denmark.

    I believe they were referring to multiple athletes, not any particular individual.

    “A Kenyan con artist has won the last two United States presidential races.”

    As soon as you close a rathole, another rat shows up, eager to spout hate politics.

    Pollution was lethal. The famous London smog was killing people, the Thames was a flowing cesspool of toxins and the occasional corpse.

    Why would John use William Gladstone’s nose as an illustration? It was said his silhouette was that of a man playing a saxophone.
