American science in action.
Back in the early 70s, I had an army buddy who was a native of Carlisle England. He had become a fan of American football during his time in the States. He reported that during his leave at home this had led to argument with some of his devoutly English mates over the relative merits of the English and American versions of football (the former known as soccer in these parts). He claimed to have settled it by asking, “If two blokes are talking about football, and the conversation is taking place on the MOON, which version do they mean?”
