The perpetrator, 25-year-old Marine veteran and sharpshooter, Charles Whitman, killed his wife and mother before using the University of Texas clock tower as a sniper's nest to kill 15 people, including a pregnant woman, and wound 31 before being killed by police.

There have been a few orangutan models in the entertainment industry, notably Manis who played Clyde as Clint Eastwood's sidekick in the 1978 box office hit Every Which Way But Loose and the sequel Any Which Way You Can as well as in the 1984 movie Cannonball Run II. Page 66 - "the tongueless and magical octiron bell of Old Tom in the Unseen University clock tower, whose twelve measured silences temporarily overruled the feeding a random text generating program with a Chinese takeaway menu (shrimp) and the lyrics to the They Might be Giants song, " Particle Man" (Millennium hand) . In music allegro ma non troppo means a tempo mark directing that a passage is to be played allegro, but not too much so. Colon is clearly using the term 'men' as in 'human' rather than referring to the male of the species, whereas Angua is thinking the opposite. The burden of proof meaning hard facts not circumstantial evidence and the proof of an alcohol like Soggy Mountain Dew - its percentage of alcohol. Many imaginative, but incorrect stories have come up over the years, including that cop refers to the police uniform's copper buttons, the police man's copper badge, or that it is an abbreviation for "constable on patrol", "constabulary of police", or "chief of police".

The Discworld Collector’s Library is a stunning hardback collection of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series, with cover artwork by Joe McLaren. Page 31 - In Sergeant Colon's speech and procedures as he trains the new watch, Pratchett pokes fun at the similar trend in Roundworld on procedure over actual actions - talking about it rather than doing it. Note how both the 'gold' etymology and the 'waxy appearance' perfectly match Chrysoprase's character as the rich, suave, uptown Mafia-troll. Page 84 - "The moon would be up soon" Angua's concern make it pretty clear that her 'problem' isn't that she is a w (oman) but a w (erewolf). This is another reference to the similarities between the silicon based Trolls and the silicon base of a computer chip (like the earlier use of binary).The more likely source is that in earlier times the bell on the church tower or the hand bell of the town crier was used to summon attention. In British English, the term cop is recorded (Shorter Oxford Dictionary) in the sense of 'to capture' from 1704, derived from the Latin capere via the Old French caper.

It is therefore not surprising that opening a Fish Bar on the site of temple to a fish god is a bad move.

Clowns' faces are trademarked and cannot be copied by any other clown (unlike clothes or a specific act).

The morning star is any of several medieval club-like weapons consisting of a shaft with an attached ball adorned with one or more spikes. Page 177 - When the Troll Detritus gets locked in the pork futures warehouse, he creates an elaborate "theory of everything" equation all over the walls, in an attempt to pass the time until he is rescued.Only later on did they diverge into two groups; clowns or court jesters on the one hand and circus or sideshow freaks on the other. Pratchett loves to throw in these little 'educate the reader' lessons in etymology, Some are correct, others are puns and others are completely and deliberately off base. Page 250 - "Used to be as rich as Creosote" The line is a reference to the Roundworld expression "as rich as Croesus" but there is also a connection between Creosote and King Midas and his touch as well as to Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem Kubla Khan and Omar Khayyam's The Rubaiyat.
