I put it here for your benefit, in case you didn’t understand. LOL.
No need to care for my benefit sir.
Sometimes, A picture is indeed worth a thousand words, and have understood it previously, courtesy of wikipedia and quora and others.

TIL that what I used to call a sofa-bed is now referred to as a western futon.

That's truly weird. We have a sofa-bed in our living room, and it looks nothing like a Japanese futon.

I can't remember the last time I slept on/under a real Japanese futon, but I do remember that it looked nothing like a sofa bed.

What a strange world we live in.

This I learnt from a delightful post from Shiela and checked with Wikipedia (about the futon, not Shiela).

At least one of the bullets mangled his right hand enough to the point that he lost at least one finger.  He went out of his way to conceal this on the show, almost always keeping his right hand out of shots.  There were a few times it was visible on screen, but you'd have to hunt to find them.  I recall at least one scene with him in the Jeffries Tube where he used his right hand for a repair because he was "holding" in place with his left hand.

Always close the program you're running before exiting the holodeck

John Lydon — aka Johnny Rotten, the notorious  lead singer of the Sex Pistols — joined the band in the summer of 1975. He married Nora Foster in 1976.

Fast forward to today, and they are still married and they will celebrate their 46th wedding anniversary next month.

TIL,
Cutting a soda can’s top off, (or 4 for that matter) can be done with only a blunt nail cutter / nail clippers. That and a lot of exertion.

A Can opener, of any size, maybe ubiquitous there, but is a really rare sight in households here. I myself have never held one.
Reason? Sealed-Can food is not at all popular for retail usage here, going out on a limb and saying, nationwide, majorly.
Although soda cans are like the softest (easiest to puncture) cans, the double-seam, like of every can is hard to break.
Plus had some time and an old blunt nail-cutter/nail-clipper, which did the job.
Though sandpapers of the right grit are the best for the task.

TIL, via a TV dramatisation, that in the 19th century, the polite way to ask if someone had had sexual congress was to enquire "were you connected".

Which dramatisation would this be? Or, to be more specific, in which part of the 19th century was it set?

"Gentleman Jack" on BBC/HBO about the life of Anne Lister (3 April 1791 – 22 September 1840)
It was created by Sally Wainwright who's written several very good programmes. I'm late to the party here so only seen the first 4 episodes of the first series.

Thanks for that. I didn't make it past the first ten minutes of the first episode of "Gentleman Jack", so didn't catch that reference.

June 10 annually recognizes an ice cream float beverage aka Root Beer Float – made with root beer & vanilla ice cream it was originally made with vanilla ice cream but sometimes made with chocolate ice cream or even plain cola flavor. Frank J. Wisner of Cripple Creek, Colorado, gets the credit for inventing the Black Cow way back in August of 1893, to wit: “One dark and stormy night,” as Wisner, owner of the Cripple Creek Cow Mountain Gold Mining Co stared out the window, thinking about the line of soda waters he was producing for the citizens of Cripple Creek, he had an idea. The full moon that night was shining on snow-capped Cow Mountain reminded him of a scoop of vanilla ice cream. He hurried back to his bar & added a spoonful of creamy vanilla goodness to the children’s favorite flavor soda, Myers Avenue Red Root Beer. When he tasted it, he knew he had a hit...and it was! - Wisner named his new creation, Black Cow Mountain, but local children shortened name to Black Cow. And, now you know “the rest of the story.”
