    Classical music isn’t dead. In 2016 Mozart sold more CDs than Beyoncé. (As much as I love Mozart I’d still prefer to watch Beyoncé perform. Mozart’s a little long in the tooth these days.):D

    Breaks and dislocations aside, you can't lick your own elbows. If you have mangled yourself sufficiently to lick your own elbow, what went wrong in your life that elbow licking came to mind first?
    If you wish to lick someone else's, it's considered polite to ask permission first.

    Jiffy. Actual time definition :

    The earliest technical usage for jiffy was defined by Gilbert Newton Lewis (1875–1946). He proposed a unit of time called the "jiffy" which was equal to the time it takes light to travel one centimeter in a vacuum (approximately 33.3564 picoseconds).[3]

    The sun is 400 times larger than the moon and is also 400 times further away from Earth. This is why they both appear to be the same size when viewed from Earth and why the moon can completely eclipse the sun.

    Mojo that can be explained isn't real mojo.

    It seems to eclipse it all the time in the UK. :(

    Meanwhile, Neptune emits more heat than it receives from the sun.

    The Moon is slowly expanding its orbit. In time there will be no more total solar eclipses.
