The bit about stamps being legal tender (they are, but not like that). Oh The Office (British version), nearly anyone should have a look at that. It's only 12 episodes long.

The exception to my bracketed comment above is usually British comedies, but in the case of The Office, not yet. I know, I know. One day.

Hey, one day, it's only taken me 15 years to catch up on The Thick Of It. I get it.

Ah, The Thick of It. I thought I couldn't love Yes Minister more, and then I discovered I could get it in a Scottish accent with excessive profanity.

My favourite part about The Thick of It was when Malcolm Tucker casually referenced Jamie as 'the nice one'.

I didn't realise there were so many variations out there; on our coins it's been maybe four different heads-in-profile over the course of sixty years.

Isn't there a statue within the Bank of England that states that when the Queen dies, all sterling pound bills of all denominations will change to reflect the new King/Queen?

It is something worthy to consider of to get rid of the couple of sterling pound bills that I have... hedging against the US dollar.

...it's still going to be legal tender if it's got Queen Elizabeth on it.
