You can also use "Point Percy at the porcelain" but only if you are a man.

Your imagination is way more obtuse than mine. I bow down to you. You are the master.

Please note: Both obtuse and abstruse are my favorite words at the moment.

Perhaps it originates from the North of England and as you live in London you live a more sheltered life!

It's an archaic expression and possibly has a northern bias ...

Quote
Most of the well-known manufacturers produced pony or horse drawn mowers but probably the best known was Alexander Shanks and Co of Arbroath, Scotland. This company had produced the first horse drawn mowers in the mid-19th century and they were immediately popular, especially on the growing number of golf courses and other sports grounds that were being built at the time. Some people believe that this is the origin of the term "Shanks's Pony",

Why does one half of the map have big blocky blocks and the other half have small blocky blocks ?

Please note, this is not the next puzzle...this is me asking a question.

The puzzle will be along after this intermission that will now last a few hours !

I think the blocks are counties within states.
The greater the (human) population density the more numerous and smaller the counties within a state.
So poorly populated states have big blocks.

i.e the block size is is inversely proportional to population density.

In general this is correct - BUT these county boundaries were all set by 1900 so it reflects population density at that time, not at present.

King County, Texas. In 2000, its population was 356. King County has the second-smallest population of any county in the continental United States, ranking ahead of only Loving County, which has a population of 67 people. There is a county in Hawaii that has less people.

Haggis is a Scottish dish which looks the same before and after its transit through the digestive tract.
