Irn-Bru is a Scottish carbonated soft drink, often described as "Scotland's other national drink" after Scotch whisky. In addition to being sold throughout the United Kingdom, Irn-Bru is available throughout the world and can usually be purchased where there is a significant community of people from Scotland.

A bicycle parking rack, usually shortened to bike rack and also called a bicycle stand, is a device to which bicycles can be securely attached to for parking purposes. A bike rack may be free standing or it may be securely attached to the ground or some stationary object such as a building. Indoor bike racks are commonly used for private bicycle parking, while outdoor bike racks are often used in commercial areas. General styles of racks include the inverted U, serpentine, bollard, grid, and decorative. The most effective and secure bike racks are those that can secure both wheels and the frame of the bicycle, using a bicycle lock.
Actors or film crew members who don't believe in superstitions probably don't take weird movies with satanic or supernatural themes too seriously. Well, neither did Roman Polanski, who kind of made a career out of weird movies and had his pregnant wife, actress Sharon Tate, murdered by the Manson family just a year after filming “Rosemary's Baby”.

A cabin hook is used in many situations to hold a door open, like on ships to prevent doors from swinging and banging against other woodwork as the ship moves due to wave action. This usage spread also to other domains, where a door was required to be held open or a self-closing device is used to close the door. Many buildings are built with fire-resistant doors to separate different parts of buildings and to allow people or sensitive equipment to be protected from fire and smoke. When using a cabin hook in such a situation, one should keep in mind that a fire-resistant door is an expensive and heavy item, and it only works as a fire door if it is always closed.

The Video Home System -- better known by its abbreviation VHS -- is a consumer-level analog recording videotape-based cassette standard developed by Victor Company of Japan (JVC). Several improved versions of VHS exist, most notably Super-VHS (S-VHS), an analog video standard with improved video bandwidth. S-VHS improved the horizontal luminance resolution to 400 lines (versus 250 for VHS/Beta and 500 for DVD). The audio-system (both linear and AFM) is the same. S-VHS made little impact on the home market, but gained dominance in the camcorder market due to its superior picture quality.
