Probably but I was too hungry to notice.  Almost broke into a run as I approached the Wrap-It-Up.

Have you ever been to Tamada by the way?  Georgian restaurant off Abbey Road.  Went there for my birthday and found no reason to complain.

I'm not really a London person. Occasionally Putney or Clapham to see mates or Lords for the cricket.

If Georgian food is anything like Estonian fayre I may give it a miss.

Good call on the Byrds, would possibly have got to a them eventually when my brain had ground its way in that direction, probably sometime this evening.

Nice of you to offer some hope, Galted, but lets be realistic here. The 'pede is dead.

It's a distressing image for me, I won't lie.

It's all becoming clear now.  The centipede never bit the man's leg but was dropped from a great height and landed on his head while he was using a circular saw to make a bird table.

Butterflies and moths have many things in common, mainly scales that cover their bodies and wings. These scales are actually modified hairs. Butterflies and moths belong to the order Lepidoptera (from the Greek lepis meaning scale and pteron meaning wing).

Yes. Butterflies have long thin antennae with bulbs on top, Moths have feathery saw-like antennae.

According to wiki -

Rhopalocera and Heterocera are non-standard divisions in the taxonomy of Lepidopterans, used in an attempt to formalize the popular distinction between butterflies and moths.

This nomenclature is not scientifically accepted because while the butterflies form a monophyletic group, the moths, which comprise the rest of the Lepidoptera, do not.

Many attempts have been made to group the superfamilies of the Lepidoptera into natural groups, most of which fail because one of the two groups is not monophyletic: Microlepidotera and Macrolepidoptera, Heterocera and Rhopalocera, Jugatae and Frenatae, Monotrysia and Ditrysia
.

No wonder people lose interest in this stuff. I withdraw the question.

Once hired an electrician called Roy Wood. Wasn't Roy Wood of "The Move" and "Wizard" fame, but still think that counts as a rock-n-roll anecdote to add to my others.

I'm not sure if this is libellous and or remotely true, but it is sort of a music anecdote. I had it on fairly good authority that whilst Alexa Chung was copping off with Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys), she was also getting 'kicks' from possibly the most famous footballer the UK has produced.
