TRUTH !!
In the 18th century and until 1 January 1980, Britain defined alcohol content in terms of “proof spirit,” which was defined as the most dilute spirit that would sustain combustion of gunpowder. The term originated in the 18th century, when payments to British sailors included rations of rum. To ensure that the rum had not been watered down, it was “proofed” by dousing gunpowder in it, then testing to see if the gunpowder would ignite. If it did not burn, the rum contained too much water—and was considered to be “under proof".

Thanks for correcting the spelling on Chynna's name. And I will correct yours now - Cindy is actually spelled Wendy! LOL Thanks for the trivia, I love it!

And now I have a secret weapon for getting more answers correct (without peaking). My Dad moved in yesterday and he is a trivia master!
