    One of my pet hates. The only lane you should routinely stay in is the left hand lane. Other lanes are for specific purposes and should be used for those only. Another pet hate: Nowhere in the highway code or the Road Traffic act are any lanes on a dual carrageway or motorway designated a Fast Lane. They do not exist in the UK. The outer lanes may be populated with fast moving traffic, but just because you can go fast, doesn't mean you should use these lanes. Or drive fast. Maps on the otherhand may show Fastlane, but that's in Scotland and a very different thing.

    That'll be the rohypnol your freind put in the drinks. How is sitting down this morning? (This is a joke by the way and I REALLY hope it isn't accidentally true)

    Which they are doing, hence my comment that they'll need to be damn good to get Homes and Watson out of this one without a bucket of cheese. Apparently writing will start after the next series of Dr Who has been written.

    What? You don't like a cliff hanger or were you hoping that it would be wrapped up in a nice "happy ever after" ending? No, the end was cool. Just leaves the writers with an epic task to write their way our of this one without resorting to a bucket of cheese.

    Was last night also the first night in months that you got a decent night's undisturbed sleep?

    Which leads to the question, was the big bang the start of the absolute universe, was it just the start of the universe that we are aware of and our universe is actually the equivalent of a galaxy in a greater universe, or, are we in fact the electrons, neutrons and nuclei of atoms of a far greater particle? Equally, could we actually be finding scientific explanations for the creationist view point that God created the universe.
  9. I didn't know this profile still existed. Cool.

    My proclaimed nationality is English. England is also part of the Great Britian, (England, Scotland & Wales). Great Britain is part of the United Kingdon of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Here's where it gets confusing... Passports: The Passport and Identity Agency are the issuing authority for the United Kingdom, however they ascribe the default nationality of British. So although technically Northern Ireland is not part of Great Britain, it's citizens are British, even though they are part of the United Kingdon, not Great Britain. Sport: Football and Rugby internationally recognise England, Scotland and Wales as countries*. Football recognises Northern Ireland as a country, but Cricket and Rugby do not, (NI and ROI are one country for the purposes of national teams) Cricket seems to recognise Scotland as a minor county as well. For the Olympic Games, only Great Britain is internationally recognised and the same applies to the majority of Olympic sports. I don't know about the Commonwealth games off the top of my head. Also in sport, people can switch nationalities at the drop of a hat. For example: Andrew Murray and David Coulthard are both Scottish and British, British if they are winning, Scottish if they are not. There are many others, but I really can't be bothered to look them up. In short, the value of nationalities within the United Kingdon has been weakened by successive "British" governments to the extent that now, the question of British Vs European will soon be as interchangable as the nationalities within the United Kingdon. It's all a load of old cobblers.

    At the same time, they, or at least the ones I have had to deal with are very quick to resort to emotional blackmail in order to achieve their aims.

    Makes perfect sense to me.

    You could argue that, you could equally argue that London pays for England which pays for the rest of the UK. You'd then have Scots arguing that actually it's North Sea Oil off the coast of Scotland that pays a big chunk towards the UK as well and that it's thanks to the Barnet agreement that they're not richer than they are and that England are a bunch of theiving barstewards for taking their oil, and as such, until Scotland is independant and able to control it's own resources, (in international waters), then this thievery will continue and all fo Scotland's ills are the fault of the English. Truth is, short of revolution on one side of the border or the other, Scotland will not have independance until the oil runs out, then it will be cast adrift when the money it pays into the union is exceeded by the money required to keep the Scots from slipping into poverty. Or Mel Gibson becomes President of the USA, which thankfully can never happen.

    I don't know who coined thephrase but it's stuck for me - Chugging! Charity Mugging. Getting stopped in the street by the usually young, exuberant "right on" kids who seem to think that just by showing a "heart rendering" picture of some starving child that we will instantly melt and hand over our bank details to well meaning strangers. Don't like it. I support 3 charities and that's it: the RNLI, Help for Heros and Bamako Bampots - that's it, my choice. Last time a collector tried to stop me in town I found it amusing. [cue bright eyed, bushy tailed young twenty something supporting 2 day "designer" stubble, and I kid you not, sandals] "Excuse me sir, I'm collecting for..." [Me] "Sorry, don't do Chuggers". And walked past. The confused look on his face made it worth. Not been bothered by any of them since.

    The problem is that the vast majority of people forget that they too, were a learner once and buy into the whole thing about learners being ###### drivers. If you can remember that you were a learner once too and give them a bit more patience, you won't turn into one of those drivers. I've found that the majority of ###### drivers don't have L Plates, they've passed their test then promptly decided they didn't need to learn anymore. Once you learn to pass your test, then you learn to drive. And if you have a brain between your ears that works, you NEVER stop learning.
