Smith, David (27 May 2014). "Peat bog as big as England found in Congo". The Guardian . Retrieved 31 May 2014. Og’s a great game to secrete in the cupboard, ready for visiting nephews, nieces, children of friends etc. Especially if you like the idea of being that fun, slightly subversive grown-up figure in their life. It’s a piece of cake to set up, although you’ll need some batteries (3xAA) to energise those explosions. Campbell, D.R.; Rochefort, L. (2003).

Distribution and extent [ edit ] Carnivorous plants, such as this Sarracenia purpurea pitcher plant of the eastern seaboard of North America, are often found in bogs. Capturing insects provides nitrogen and phosphorus, which are usually scarce in such conditions. Differing theories of the origin of bog-standard have been proposed, but none proven. An immediate association with bog n. 1 seems unlikely on semantic grounds. The most commonly held view is that the transition from box to bog resulted from a mishearing or misunderstanding of box standard n.Cashel Man, from 2000 BCE, discovered in 2011 in County Laois, Ireland. It is the oldest fleshed bog body in the world. [4] The wetland receives most of its water and nutrients from precipitation ( ombrotrophic) rather than surface or groundwater ( minerotrophic). Her body seemed to cave in on itself then, becoming smaller and smaller, so that even Cillian, fortressed behind the wall of his love, noticed and became alarmed. “Ma? What’s wrong?” Like many terms, the exact meaning of OG can vary drastically based on the context, especially since it's had so many definitions throughout the years.

The docent pointed out the dots and stripes on the potsherds. Charcoal smudges that might be stars or animals. Evidence, she said, of “a robust culture.” Cillian took notes: A bog or bogland is a wetland that accumulates peat as a deposit of dead plant materials – often mosses, typically sphagnum moss. [1] It is one of the four main types of wetlands. Other names for bogs include mire, mosses, quagmire, and muskeg; alkaline mires are called fens. [ clarification needed] A baygall is another type of bog found in the forest of the Gulf Coast states in the United States. [2] [3] They are often covered in heath or heather shrubs rooted in the sphagnum moss and peat. The gradual accumulation of decayed plant material in a bog functions as a carbon sink.

The aim of the game is to steal Og’s loo rolls and leave him stranded on the loo. Players take turns on the spinner to see if they can sneak a loo roll of its pole. Once the peat has been extracted it can be difficult to restore the wetland, since peat accumulation is a slow process. [4] [33] [34] More than 90% of the bogs in England have been damaged or destroyed. [35] [36] In 2011 plans for the elimination of peat in gardening products were announced by the UK government. [4] Other uses [ edit ]The attempted conversion of the high-school gymnasium into an Arabian-themed wonderland had not been a success. Cill and the Bog Girl stood under a palm tree that looked like an enormous toilet brush, made of cellophane and cardboard tubes. Three girls from the limo came up and asked to dance with Cillian, but he explained that his girlfriend hated to be left alone. All were sulkily respectful of her claim on him. By early winter, the Bog Girl’s stillness had begun to provoke a restlessness in Cillian, a squeezed and throbbing feeling. He was failing three subjects. His mother had threatened to send him to live with Aunt Cathy until he “straightened out.” He didn’t care. Waiting for the bus in the freezing rain, he no longer dreamed about owning a car. He knew what he would do with the summer money he’d earned from Bos Ardee: run away with her.
