  1. US Food Safety regulations...

    Although I'm avoiding Brexit in particular and the news in general at the moment it's actually quite difficult to do and I saw an article which claimed that under US Food Safety regs there are permitted amounts of maggots, rat hair, faeces and mould that are allowed. As far as I am aware, EU regs...

  2. Free labor

    It started way back in the 70's with self-serve gasoline pumps. A few days ago went to pick up my wife at the airport. I left way early and on the way stopped at a Walmart to pick up some fried chicken pieces to take and eat at the airport. I had to scan bag and enter my money into a...

  3. The Kathryn Spirit

    The godforsaken idiocy off Beauharnois is finally disposed of (https://montreal.ctvnews.ca/abandoned-ship-kathryn-spirit-has-finally-been-dismantled-1.4132028), after nearly a decade of self-inflicted nonsense preventing its rapid dismantling. The Kathryn Spirit was beached there for dismantling...

  4. Things that confuse me

    This Civil Partnership thing. For those not watching, the UK has legalized different-sex civil partnerships. One male and one female, both having reached the age of consent, may now enter into a civil partnership. What no news site has yet said is whether they can do this if either partner is...

  6. Chaotic start - to supreme court hearing

    OK, it is obvious that the Democratic Party is suffering some kind of seizure over the nomination of a Supreme Court Justice. The fear is this particular nominee has shown a tendency to respect the text of the Constitution. Bad news for those who are used to using the courts to legislate when they...

  7. Bad vibration

    I have a vibration problem. It's been going on for almost 3 years now and is costing me sleep by the ...gallon? ...ton? ...sheepload? Almost no-one else is affected at all, but at its worst I was getting no sleep or less than 4 hours every night and is a large part of why I wasn't posting here...

  8. May in Europe: Nobody move or the ****** gets it.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_JOGmXpe5I That's pretty much what the Brexit threat to leave the EU without a deal really is, especially after the EU/Japanese deal and the deal Germany has made with China. ...I doubt the EU will be fooled. edit: It's also a moment of comic genius. :)

  9. The Trump visit might be more interesting than we thought...

    This is not a joke, this is real, as far as I'm aware: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-44732754 Now, it still has to be passed to fly by the Met Police and the local flying control, neither of which are noted for their sense of humour so there's a good chance that it won't get...

  10. Riots in N Ireland

    I hope this is an unnecessary thread that slides swiftly down the list and off the actives. Unfortunately there has been a week of youths throwing petrol bombs at night in Republican areas. It is undoubtedly being driven by extremists and even someone like Gerry Adams has been targeted (he now...

  11. Brexit makes us poorer

    According to the Governor of the Bank of England as a result of the brexit vote every household in the UK is NOW £900 worse off as a result of the brexit vote than we would have been had we not been so ****ing stupid. I'd like to thank and congratulate every brexiter on their contribution to our...

  12. Met Sir Edward Davey, MP.

    One of my lodgers has been really badly messed around by the benefits system, a situation that I have been involved with since October but which got serious much earlier, August at least. It's the usual tale of lost paperwork, left hand not knowing what the right is doing and bureaucratic...

  14. Dilemma, what to do ?

    I am opposed to any NHS privatisation. I recently declined (pig headedly) an appointment COPD check up by a 'visiting nurse' at my Doctors because when I checked the companies name they were a private Healthcare provider brought in to provide the service rather than the practice own nurse, who...

  15. Two planes down in one day

    A Hawker Hunter - a beautiful plane which should on no account be dropped - seems to have been ridden into the ground at Shoreham Airshow after an aerobatic loop, at which point it ploughed across a very crowded A27. The pilot may be the luckiest man on the planet if reports of his reaching...

  18. Roasting

    The White House correspondents’ dinner happened again. This idea of roasting, from what I gather, started back in the fifties or sixties as an equivalent of the best man's wedding speech, made between friends. A poke in the ribs with words. Something to amuse. What happened this week is...

  19. 20 years of the Good Friday Agreement

    I felt it needed an acknowledgement. The process may be stalled at present with the deadlock at Stormont but I saw a stat that really illustrated what it has achieved: In the 20 years before the Good Friday Agreement 1,500 people were killed as a result of the Troubles. In the 20 years since...

  20. Brexit Questions

    1) How are brexiters going to solve the Irish Border issue? The Irish Gov't has said it will veto any hard border in Ireland between North and South. That means if there is to be a border it has to be between NI and the rest of the currently UK. The DUP and brexiters have said they will veto...
