  1. When was this sign changed to go as fast as you like?
  2. [OP steps back from accusations of understanding the price of everything and the value of nothing]

    Infestation of pocket sharks in the deep end according to people. The glow in the dark ones, not the normal ones, so they're going to keep the lights off so you can see the sharks coming at you. Until they get the frickin' lasers working.
  5. I used to thtink so but now I'm not so sure. Badum.
  6. Or like prince HarryWilliam, you could try landing your chopper on her back garden.
  7. I like this quote from one of the articles China posted over on Epstein: "If you want a conspiracy theory, you can have one…but it should revolve around the right-wing demonization of drugs and mental illness, the proliferation of for-profit prisons, and the awful people who run prisons as punitive pits for the unwanted. I’ll believe in that before I believe in shadowy assassins staging murders as suicides in prisons." https://freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula/2019/08/13/the-best-explanation-for-the-death-of-epstein/
  8. "plausibility is not evidence" - nice one!
  9. I was getting a bit of an "understated Trump" vibe from it.
  10. I would consider you a step above that. In the almond gallery definitely and with aspirations for the macadamia gallery.
  11. "Manx Woman Grabs Wrong End of Stick...Again" is hardly headline news.
  12. So are you saying the poster is actually totally justified?
  13. Just 15 minutes after its closest approach to Pluto on July 14, 2015, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft looked back toward the sun and captured this near-sunset view of the rugged, icy mountains and flat ice plains extending to Pluto’s horizon. The smooth expanse of the informally named icy plain Sputnik Planum (right) is flanked to the west (left) by rugged mountains up to 11,000 feet (3,500 meters) high. (Image: © NASA/JHUAPL/SwRI) From space.com. A picture of Pluto. Pluto, ffs! For most of our history all we could see was this:
  14. You seem to be terribly jaundiced.

    We could do a 10K. Fly! One of the most enduring world records ever set was by Mary T Meagher in 1981 when she swam the 200 meter butterfly in 2:05.96. Thirty-one years later, and despite many suit improvements, Mary’s time is still within striking distance of the 2:04.1 that won the 2008 Olympics. Legend has it that during their winter training break in 1979 at the Keating Natatorium in Cincinnati, the team was given a 10,000, long course, for time. If they performed under a stated time by Coach Pursley they could miss the morning swim session that followed the next day. Mary and some of her teammates piped up and asked, “What about butterfly?” Coach Pursley offered that anyone that wanted to swim the 10,000 meters butterfly could, but to earn sleep the next morning they must complete the distance without a single break of stroke (using a single arm). Mary T earned was successful in the challenge to swim the 10,000 meter butterfly.

    And there we have it.
  17. There's usually not a huge financial cost to retaining one's virginity, though.
  18. A high level summary statistic like this can cover a multitude of sins. It's unlikely to correct for the different proportions of road types for UK vs. IoM, nor the types of vehicle, nor the journey length, nor demographic factors, nor, as Max has just pointed out, the effect of motorsport visitors.
