Random thoughts/knighthood

Yeah, the title explains it all. Just random thoughts buzzing around. Somehow, the other night my dad got on to the topic of how one would go about receiving the prestigious honor of knighthood. Don't ask me how he got on to this topic, idk. But I did a little research and it says that in order to receive this prestigious honor, you have to make a contribution to arts and humanities in the name of England basically. Some think you can buy something like this, not really sure how that would happen, but you can't, you have to do it through good will and merit, doing a good contribution to arts and humanities and national life in the name of England, and alot of the people who received this honor weren't from England, but from places like Scotland, Ireland, etc. It can go to men, where they are called Sir or women, called Dame. It can be given to actors, musicians, scientists, you name it, the range is pretty big. Long ago, it was used for military, but nowadays, it is given to people who make contributions to arts and humanities and national life. Surprisingly, alot of the actors, actresses, musicians and other people we like may have received this totally awesome honor, people like:
The Beatles-June 1965
Mick Jagger-Dec. 12, 2003
Elton John-Feb. 24, 1998
Paul McCartney-March 11, 1997
Bono-March 29, 2007
