Humphrey Lyttelton "Still preserved in the centre of Croydon are the famous Elizabethan Whitgift alms houses. When they were opened in 1599 the mayor proclaimed there was free food and shelter, and invited the town's poor, needy, and impotent. Well, the poor and the needy arrived … but the impotent couldn't come."
Round 1: Uxbridge English Dictionary
Examples are a regular feature of this round "As an example, there are those who have no concept of the technical difference between the terms girder and rafter. In fact, the term rafter is used by structural engineers to denote a supporting beam whose cross-sectional ratio is calculated as span over two plus two. Whereas girder was some old kraut who wrote Faust."
