Perhaps you can answer a question that?s been troubling me for some time.
Whilst cable-surfing in the last few days I?ve seen ads for a new movie with Tim Roth in it called ?The Musketeer.? If you?ve not seen the trailer you still know what it looks like: dashing French swordsmen wearing long boots, capes, pointed beards and floppy hats engaged in much swashbuckling. This particular flic seems to be about one of the three famous French swordsmen. But here?s the problem.
If they?re known as the Three Musketeers how come they?re famous for their swordsmenship and not their prowess with muskets?
Anybody know the answer? And while we?re talking about conundrums – how is it that seeds, when planted, know which way to grow? It?s not like each seed has ?this way up? written on it.
