Anancus arvernensis (or ). Pliocene ~3.5M years. Yacimiento de las Higueruelas, Alcolea de Calatrava, Ciudad Real

Went to a birthday party with the wee one and he got a party horn. Now, telling him that its name is Spanish is matasuegras (mother-in-law-killer).

¿Cuántos trabajadores del campo tenían derecho a voto en Andalucia en 1982 y cuántos tienen derecho a voto en 2022?

Robert Stevenson was a civil engineer, born in Glasgow, who designed lighthouses. He had three sons: David, Alan, and Thomas, who also designed lighthouses. And the sons of David, guess what? Yes, they did it too. However, the children of Alan and Thomas didn't follow that path (probably every head in Scotland had a lighthouse by then!), and some of them were renowned authors. Amongst these, the prolific Robert Louis Stevenson.

el "brother-in-law-ism" en the economist -esta no me la esperaba :p

"Spanish even distinguishes cuñado (brother-in-law by blood relation to your spouse) from concuñado, your spouse’s sibling’s husband—something like “co-brother-in-law”. It also has the term cuñadismo, brother-in-law-ism, or talking about things you know little about as though you were an authority—the phrase is akin to “mansplaining” in English."
