Topic: OT: Rum (18 lines)
1) From: Sean Cary
I have a better link (our unlcass is super slow due to a fiber cut outside
the theater), but long story short - he was killed during the battle of
Trafalgar...and instead of a burial at sea they embalmed him in a cask of
rum.  The sailors drank the rum during the voyage home - hence the slang for
rum as Nelsons Blood...
Nice.
