Britain is still labouring under the misapprehension that it can do just fine in the modern world despite ceasing to function under levels of snow that would pass unnoticed in most of Europe, it has emerged.

"Speaking to LBC radio, Mr Davis said: "What's the requirement of my job? I don't have to be very clever, I don't have to know that much, I do just have to be calm. And that did test the calmness a bit, a little bit.""

The Beatles turned down the invitation to have their music on the golden record sent into space!
NASA refused to have 1 photo, amongst about a hundred sent into space, feature naked humans!!

Of course!
We all know about 'for sun/rain (paragua in Spanish) but hadn't really thought about.. umbrella itself!
Had you +Suzanne Seyghal Buckingham​?!

"The word "parasol" (Spanish or French) is a combination of para, meaning to stop or to shield, and sol, meaning sun. "Parapluie" (French) similarly consists of para combined with pluie, which means rain (which in turn derives from pluvia, the Latin word for rain). Hence, a parasol shields from sunlight while a parapluie shields from rain. (Parachute means "shield from fall".)

The word "umbrella" evolved from the Latin umbella(an umbel is a flat-topped rounded flower) or umbra, meaning shaded or shadow."
