I believe Newton's speech was his only utterance in Parliament.

They were all available on the Internet, I see. Seamus poetry is two thirds of all poetry sold in the UK by a living poet.
Ahhhh..... a typo. I just couldn't understand how poetry could be by "living pets".

I thought we were talking about poems attributed by poets to their pets!

Unfortunately, Parliamentary speeches weren't regularly published until 1775 or so (indeed, it was an offence to do so before 1771), so we just don't know.

Haha, sorry about that, auto correct is a fickle lover. Just proves why you never proofread your own writing.

A couple of fun questions:

1.January 30, 1933 was the day the words "_____ __ _______! _____! were first heard as new radio program debuts. What were the words, and what was the program?

2. What is the largest milk producing country by volume in the whole world?

3. What is the most common birth name in the world.

4. Which animal can go without water longer than a camel.

5. How old is the Earth? (Extra credit if you know its birthday.)

2. I believe that's us! I.e. New Zealand. If you're talking cows' milk, anyway.

5. C. 4.5 billion years. Or if you prefer, 6,016 years, with its birthday being 23 October.

Oops, a careless misreading of the question on my part. I thought it said "per capita" (I don't know why). Somewhere with a much larger population, I expect.
