The English longbow was often made of a wood called Yew. A trained Bowman could use a Longbow effectively at a range of 150m, with the ability to pierce through plate armour.

Just as an aside I want to add a few more dimensions to this:
* Ask a question, and others must try answer correctly, eg: What are the names of Jupiters moons?
* Jeapardy: Give us the answer and we state the question. eg: "Holder of the 100m sprint record"
This could get a little messy with answers and questions flying everywhere so try asnwering someones question before posting your own.
Olives are a part of the Italians (and most mediteranian) diets.

Q. How many recognised regional variations of NZ English are there?
(by recognised I mean by linguists...)
I've searched and searched for the answer and I can't find it. So i'm going to make a mild guess.
i'll give a hint..........the opposite of northland........
You asked how many, I was think along the lines that Auckland area had one, Taranaki area had a variation, definately southland had one and maybe a couple more.
Q. How long is a adult human's small intestine?
A bit more than 6 metres.
That question reminds me of dissecting a rat in biology lab last year. We had to remove the small intestine, and that thing just kept on coming!! I couldn't figure out how that rat could fit all that inside it's gut!
Keeping with this theme:
Q. How long is all the DNA laid end to end in one typical human cell?
Is it a meter? Not sure.
Anyone got an answer to the languages thingy?
I guess two... southland and everyone else.

NZ English variations
from what can understand from this, there are two, Southland and everywhere else.
Other forms of variation in New Zealand English Here, they also recognize Maori-accented English.
Regarding the DNA q - it's longer than a meter.
DNA question. The human genome contains 3,000,000,000 bases each being about 2nm long,in each cell but depending on the person ie. tallest person has more cells more DNA than shortest person. Depends on lenght, but in lay terms to the moon and back. If I remember correctly.
Q. Where would you find a harmonic balancer?
