Britain joined in with the Scots and became Great Britain.

I think the Scots would phrase that 'rather differently'.

:))

How about:
England bailed out Scotland after it was left broke by its failed trade enterprises, in return Scotland joined England and Wales to form Great Britain under the acts of union.
Better?

There's a society at this university who are planning a campaign the weekend of the 21st in neighbouring constituency where it's possible that UKIP might win a seat at the next election.
Quote from an email i recieved: "UKIP boast that it will win several seats and, more worryingly, could hold the balance of power in a hung parliament, we need to stop this from happening!"

Which to me reads: A party we don't agree with might win seats in a free and democratic election.

That's the risk you take in a democracy. The party with the most support wins and the smaller parties whine that the wrong people were elected.

I saw once an experiment on TV where a group of brits had to eat only raw vegetables.
After a few days they got problems with the stomacks and they was always hungry.

I'd probably be dead after a few days of only raw vegetables.

Buy gold today, take it with you to 1967, sell for cash.

Perhaps London should invest in the 'Denver Boot', a little invention that gets the parking ticket scofflaws attention.


The owners must pay ALL outstanding fines to get it removed and each day that goes by earns another fine. A LOT cheaper than towing.

If a vehicle is causing an obstruction worthy of a ticket, then immobilising it with a clamp does not help the situation.

I had a tshirt a while ago where the instructions said "Give it to your mother, she'll know what to do!"

To be fair, they were on three different topics, with reasonable periods of time in between.

Well done CANTAB! The first drunk to fall out the local pub at closing time and piss all over the greenery will put paid to that idea :-))

Wanna think again?

All the bus shelters round where i live don't need any power at all, they're just a perspex cover on a frame. Or in many locations, merely a sign nailed to a lamp post.

It's more that 'they' haven't worked out a way of tracking cars across borders yet.

One of my colleagues is half czech, and despite owning a RHD car, it's registered at his parent's house in Teplice and so has czech plates. He can park pretty much anywhere with impunity.

One thing I'll never do again is try to cook fish on a grill, it was a mess big time. Pork, beef, chicken fine, zero fish.

Trick i saw on the internet is to slice a lemon very thin, make a 'tray' on the barbeque with them and then cook the fish on that. I've tried it and it works a treat.

Why not use tin foil? No mess at all.

Tin foil sticks to the fish.

*Drool!*

A food so good it's been banned by two major religions, what further accolade could it have?

The ballroom shed would be my favourite from that article.

Will you two cut it out!

I cordially invite you to please refer the matter to the Mod Team at seti_moderators@ssl.berkeley.edu I am more than happy to defend my corner at any time, and in fact would welcome the opportunity to do so.

For the same reason that i wouldn't call the police if my neighbours were being a rowdy, no.

Sorry to bring chemistry into this question about chemicals.

To make statements like the above you need to be more specific than 'sugar'.
There are many sugars. Fructose is a sugar. As is glucose, a sugar often found in energy drinks like Lucozade. As is Lactose, harmless to most people, causes serious problems for those who are intolerant.
Assuming you're talking about cane sugar, which is predominantly sucrose. Sucrose is a disaccharide of glucose and fructose, and upon digestion is broken down into those two sugars. So fructose isn't worse than 'sugar', fructose is 'sugar'.

The Foundation of the 'Sugar Controversy', is The (aren't we superior) Controllers wishing MORE Power over, what they believe to be - The Dumb People.

Very dangerous.

Eh? Not really sure what you're trying to say.

Has there ever been an effort at 'crowd funding'?

LOTS of less worthy endeavors are paid for in that manor. A well written proposal might surprise everyone with the results.

:D

What would you call their current approach if not crowdfunding?
Those who are interested and can afford it do donate, anyone outside the crunching family is unlikely to be interested.

Blue or Red?

Oh blue definitely, with all my knowledge of the future (i'm following the Hitchhikers version where nothing changes or is changeable) think of the power i could gain!
