    I should be able to answer this one - it was one of my old stoner mates specialist subjects when intoxicated. (You've got to love intelligent people! Before I'd gone to uni I'd only ever seen stoned people play Sensible Soccer or watch The Shopping Channel... Never seen anyone play chess or chunter on about Roman culture...).
