Where is Gibraltar?

Gibraltar is a British colony, an overseas territory of the UK. It's a tiny area, less than six square kilometers (2.2 sq miles). The Rock of Gibraltar itself looks over the area, standing nearly 430 meters (1,400 feet) high. Gibraltar's location is important. It stands at the mouth of the Mediterranean, at the bottom of the Iberian peninsula, and only 20km (12 miles) from the north coast of Africa. It has a NATO base, including a port and airstrip. Tourists enjoy the cheap alcohol and tobacco available because of the Rock's tax-free status. And of course there are the famous apes. They were brought over from North Africa by British soldiers, and now roam freely on the Rock.

Can a sears model number 10110041 20 gauge single shot shot gun shoot slugs?

Take your gun to a local gun smith or dealor. They should be able to check to see if your barrel is a full choke. If so, they can shorten the barrel and remove the choke. That way it will become a open choke to allow the use of a slug.While they are shortening your barrel have them mount your site also. Good luck!!!!!!!

British Coins

How do I spend a five pound coin?

Despite being fully legal tender the five pound coin (crown) will often be refused in shops simply because it is not commonly seen in circulation. The reason for this is that though coin is of a standard size and weight it has no standard face designs, the coins are always of a commemorative nature and so are often kept away in private collections.

There is no way to force an individual to accept any form of payment, including legal tender. Transactions in the UK are always a mutual agreement between two parties.

The Post Office have stated that they are happy to receive the coin as payment for goods and services. A bank should also be able to exchange the coin for change or a banknote, or you can deposit it into an account.

However it is recommended that you keep hold of the coin, and if you really want to get rid of it. Selling the coin to a collector will get you more than the face value.

World War 2
Germany in WW2

If Germany had taken Gibraltar and had taken Morocco and fortified its west coast would it have prolonged the war in the Mediterranean?

Possibly, since the loss of Gibraltar may have led to the loss of Malta and possibly the U.K.'s African and Middle Eastern possessions once Rommel's supply lines were safe from attack. You would have to consider what Germany would have lost in order to take Gibraltar since the UK would have put up a stubborn fight.

North America
Plate Tectonics

Was North America once much closer to the Straits of Gibraltar?

North America did touch Europe and Africa, but whether the Strait of Gibraltar was actually a Strait at that time is unclear. The Atlantic Ocean is widening by a few centimeters every year, so if we rewind the clock and shrink the Atlantic, North America moves much closer to Europe and Africa. Whether or not the Sahara was above water at any given period during that time (if the Sahara was below water, the Straits of Gibraltar would no longer be a strait) is still up to debate since it is unclear exactly when the Tethys Sea ceased to exist.

Why is it called Gibraltar Point Lincolnshire?

There are quite a few Gibraltar points in the world - in Canada and Alaska, for example. They are named after the original Gibraltar, one of the Pillars of Hercules at the entrance to the Mediterranean, which has become a common name for any piece of land jutting out into the sea, especially if it has a big rocky cliff on the end.

Gibralter Point in Lincolnshire has no rock, which is probably why it is spelt with an E next to the end instead of an A.
