Some Uninteresting But Totally Useless Information #2



It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month
after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the
mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer, and because their calendar
was lunar based, this period was called the "honey month" or what we
know today as the "honeymoon."

In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts. So in old England,
when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them to mind their
own pints and quarts and settle down. It's where we get the phrase "mind
your P's and Q's."
