It asked about someone called Ariana Grande. I don't believe it has anything to do with culture.

It's a little-known rill that branches off the river marking the boundary between the US and Mexico. The water is rich but tasteless.

He was a general in the Revolutionary Army and sought to betray West Point to the British. His British contact, Major John Andre, was caught and hanged. Arnold fled to England. In later years he had a conversation with an American visiting England, and asked how the American people would accept him if he came home. The answer was, "We'll give your leg a military funeral (he had lost the leg in combat) and hang the rest of you."
