Bloody Nines 10 work well and are interesting.

It is not unusual for people who have had brain swelling to have their cranium cut away to prevent death. These days they tend to repair it after things get back to normal but there are still people of who have the tops of their skulls missing. Maybe you have seen this at some point and sub consciously it has come back to you.

I am sure Joe would be touched by the idea. He collects one star reviews.

A lot of people blame May for the current fiasco. I don't support her party or agree with her policies, but it isn't her fault. Leaving the EU (I try to avoid using the term 'Brexit' because I think the word sounds stupid) is never going to work regardless of who you put in charge.

Yeah hey lets put someone in charge who doesn't believe in leaving the EU to leave the EU. What could possibly go wrong?
Responsibility comes with the job and utterly failing to negotiate a deal with any advantages to the UK must fall somewhere between total incompetence and treason. Certainly those who look to forward a European super state
have an interest in ensuring it fails but plenty of countries seem to do quite well not being part of the EU.

this sort of belongs here as stupid people are definitely an ailment of the real world

In a sane world anyone caught doing this should immediately have their licence revoked as they are unfit to be responsible for a motor vehicle and a danger to themselves and others.

This past week for the first time I was treated to the adventure that is a colonoscopy. Good fricking times, that.

Unless they were looking at something specific these can be avoided. There is a blood test now that gives the results they need to know.

So I buy milk after work. The next morning when I need it, it's warm and, depending on the season, already spoiled. If it's not already spoiled, it will be the following day (if I'm not consuming one liter/day).

stand your closed carton in the sink and fill with cold water simples.

Or better yet get a clay pot with a lid and another clay tub just a bit bigger and 3 marbles. Stand the pot in the tub on top of the marbles and fill the gap with cold water. Small pot stays cold water gets warm. Change the water as required. This is how you do refrigeration without gas or electricity. Flower pots work well for this.
