4. The bridge at St Andrew's features in the old joke about the Amercian tourist golfer who said to his caddy at the end of his round "Gee, I'm so disgusted with my score, I could just jump off that bridge into the burn and drown myself", and the caddy growled "dinna boather - ye couldnae keep your heid doon long enough".

This from Google:
New York City is known by many nicknames—such as “the City that Never Sleeps” or “Gotham”—but the most popular one is probably “the Big Apple.”

Okay! if you got the Big Apple or Gotham give yourself a score. :hi: :puter
