Compass test: If the letter 'N' is on top, but the arrow is pointing to the letter 'W', then I'm facing... East. Compasses always point North. 'W' is on the left side of the compass. If the arrow is pointing to your left, then that means North is to your left, South is to your right, and East is front of you.

Another compass test: My heading is 225 degrees. I'm traveling... SW. Like a circle, a compass has 360 degrees. North is 0°, East is 90°, South is 180°, and West is 270°. 225° is between South and West.

The cubit was the first recorded unit of length and was based on the measurement from one's fingertips to his/her elbow.

Of course, the "What's a cubit" question had me think back to this...
