The City of London is still paying rent to the queen on land leased in or before 1211.

http://www.atlasobscura.com/articles...leased-in-1211

The rent is an axe, a knife, 6 horseshoes, and 61 nails. They're not even sure where the land in question was located. But the rent keeps being paid to the Queen's Remembrancer.

Do they actually pay with those items, or have they at least shifted to the cash equivalent?

(Not that those items wouldn't come in handy, you understand. I've seen the Queen's Life Guard on patrol, outside Buckingham Palace.)

And has the Queen really a horse with six legs?

They sort of pay with those items. They present them with some ceremony, and then get them back more casually some time later.

Wouldn't that be four forelegs? And since four times four is 16, it means her horses have 16 legs! Eat your hearts out Odin and Sleipnir.

A new social network for rich kids has a membership fee of $1000 per month to maintain its exclusivity.

I'm using a URL shortener in this case, because the site name has the f-word in it, which causes it to get mangled by this forum's profanity filter.

So clearly the poster or his partner used their Serendipity up on "all the moneys!"
