No I wouldn't want to waste time & money on getting that "truism" tested. We drive one way, the US drives another.

To put it your way, who's to say that driving on the right is much better than driving on the left & vice versa?

I've put my money where my mouth is. 1st one came home, now hoping SA does the business, & pretty sure I'll lose the 3rd, but who knows :-)

Technology on the plus side for a change...

2 lost cities found

"Fisher also suggested that the Lidar infrared technology used to find the site would soon be as commonplace as radiocarbon dating: “People just have to get through this ‘gee-whiz’ phase and start thinking about what we can do with it.”"

Authority is needed but what happens when that authority itself is corrupt?

Doesn't matter. Bussines as usual.

So it comes back to what I said earlier...
"Why the need for experiments or studies?"

To see how common this is.

& here's me thinking it was just academia justifying their existence :-)

India beat WI by 4 wickets.

Today Pakistan takes on Sth. Africa across the ditch and Ireland takes on Zimbabwe down in Hobart.

Cheers.

Still the 6th here Wiggo :-)

The following is stated with the best of intentions & with all honesty.

Your posting style for the past several months or more have been inconsistent but what is seen is your blatant attacks on people.

I politely suggest that you see your doctor ASAP. If I get canned for this, fair do, but I'm stating publicly what many are saying privately.

On a more personal basis, you're making too many assumptions & we all know

"Assumptions are the mother of all FU's"

Some interesting permutations could crop up after the weekend...

If India beat West Indies later this morning & South Africa beat Pakistan on Saturday, it'll give Ireland the jolt they need to beat Zimbabwe & get them closer to the quarter-finals :-)

Early morning pints are of course a fiction of your imagination.

"It’s good to know I’m supporting local business and farmers and maintaining a great British tradition…"

Early Morning Pints still a great tradition :-)

...Nice to see Ernie's alive & well :-)

Don't forget all that lovely exercise delivering your mail or your early morning pint.

Delivering electoral leaflets at 10am when it is still 32F is no fun I can assure you. But then again it is far preferable to be doing something useful in society than hiding behind everyone elses comments. Early morning pints are of course a fiction of your imagination, but late night tipples you have admitted to before.

So delivering milk at 4am or post at 8am (when we had a useful mail system) is not useful to society? What damned planet are you living on?

For a man of your maturity, that's sad.

For a person of your immaturity that is quite expected.

By your own admission you spent most of your army life ducking and diving trying to keep out of trouble. Since then you have spent most of your adult life on your own during the day as a driver in a train cab, or a lorry cab. It is hardly surprising that you find it difficult to relate to real people. Please don't take it out on me. Your problem, not my fault.

Don't forget all that lovely exercise delivering your mail or your early morning pint.
