Double Irish is another rope jumping game - it's like Double Dutch only you turn the ropes the opposite directions, and jumping in and out is more difficult. (Ah, those take me back 50+ years to the grade school playground. Wish I could still move that fast.)

I thought double Irish is when you drink two Irish Car Bombs in a row. It is also a tax avoidance technique.

This is a little anal, but as a meteorologist, I should point out that the colors in the spectrum are reversed in the second rainbow, so really it is VIBGYOR + ROYGBIV reading from left to right. That order holds true on both the left and right sides of the arc from the viewer's perspective.

Very interesting. Never realized that. (I've only seen a double rainbow once in person, out in North Dakota...and it was amazing!)

I don't think that'll make the difference between people getting that one correct or not, but it's probably a more accurate way to spell it out.

Nit-picky, but a second (or multiple) trials for the same offense are not necessarily considered double jeopardy. It common for new trials to occur in the case of a hung jury, or other reasons a judge may declare a mistrial. It's only double jeopardy if the accused is ACQUITTED, and then forced to stand trial again for the same offense.

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Tower:

Johnson, the incumbent senator and famous nationwide as the Senate Majority Leader, won the election against Tower. As John F. Kennedy's running mate, Johnson was also seeking the vice presidency in the same election. Tower's campaign slogan was "double your pleasure, double your fun — vote against Johnson two times, not one." Tower was supported by prominent Democratic former Governor Coke Stevenson of Junction in Kimble County, the loser by eighty-seven disputed votes to Johnson in the 1948 Democratic Senate primary runoff. Tower polled 927,653 votes (41.1 percent) to Johnson's 1,306,605 votes (58 percent), better than Republicans usually fared in Texas at that time.

Oboes and bassoons *use* double reeds. They are not double reeds themselves, but double reed instruments. And a coffee with twice the espresso is a double espresso.

As a bassoonist, the instruments are absolutely called double reeds all the time. This is how musicians talk about instruments.

As a clarinettist (the clarinet being a single reed *instrument*), I've never heard it used like that. Perhaps it's US-speak; after all, you call conductors maestros

What does that say about me that I couldn't believe 70% of the people didn't know what's a "Double Wide" trailer... Uh Oh

It's one of the few words that require a southern drawl to pronounce it correctly.
