  3. You'd be able to power 159,000 simultaneously all filled with sea-skimming supersonic golf balls, which any fule know is the ISO unit of awesomeness.

  15. Swindon, derived for the Domesday entry for "Suindune", believed to be derived from the Anglo-Saxon words "swine" and "dun" meaning pig hill...........well not much has changed then!
