The Teachings of Python

Though Monty Python be merely entertainment, it also provides a vast cache of knowledge.Let us discuss what we have learnt from these great teachers.
So far, I have learnt: many synonyms for 'horoscope', 'presige' and lots of other words (incuding naughty words); I learnt who wrote the liberty bell; I learnt about the Montgolfiere brothers; I learnt about politicians of the time; I learnt about typical television and interviews of the time; I learnt what 'tungsten' was; I learnt of so many philosophers; I learnt the basics of the Bible story; I learnt the characters of the Arthur legends; I learnt that the Treaty of Utrecht was in 1713 etc.
I can't think of anything else right now so please comment on what Monty Python has taught you!
(Ooh another thing I learnt about was 70s hair and fashion!!)

cony: I learnt lots of synonymes for to die ( 'E's passed on! This parrot is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! 'E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed 'im to the perch 'e'd be pushing up the daisies! 'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's off the twig! 'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-PARROT!!).

Brian: Right I need to bring this post to the beginning where its wonderfully deliicate, thrilling yet simply written fabric of information so far ignored and left alone may be observed and commented upon, I mean does anybody look beyond the first page of posts? I don't.
