That ruddy thing played havoc with my attempts at printing out some very normal seafaring language/words when doing the Nautical But Strange thingy. Describing a block (as in block and tackle) as having a bottom instead of an 'bottom'....which is the correct name for it, is ridiculous. Apart from that, the vernacular use of the word actually comes from the block. What goes round comes around I guess. BY.
