  1. This "measurement" reminds me of my favourite Dorothy Parker quote: If all the girls attending the Yale prom were laid end to end, I wouldn't be at all surprised.
  2. I'll leave the actual word count as an exercise for the student.
  3. Roger Mexico - joined June 2010, posts 5696. Dilligaf - joined Jan 2010, posts 17,817.
  4. By that logic, a Manx fiver would do just as well.
  5. The Marianas Trench is 36070 feet deep at its maximum. If a midget is, say, 2 feet smaller than the average person, that makes Uhtred's remark an extra 0.005544774% funnier than it might otherwise have been.
  6. Coronavirus prompts LV to suspend travel cover... ...and they probably won't be the last.
  7. After two threads questioning whether foxes and snakes inhabit the Isle of Man, the net (no pun intended) has widened.
  8. Indeed. And it was with similar incredulity that I read this one: https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/barber-tasked-with-improving-culture-within-health/ Be careful what you wish for, Clare!
  9. The "electromagnetic genocide" being carried out by the "profiteering telecommunications industry" is my favourite bit. It makes the landmines being churned out by the profiteering armaments industry look like small beer.
  10. Oooh, get her! Slightly more seriously, as I have no doubt you know more than me about most things, and this thing in particular: what makes this any more of an issue than a new influenza variant, say, the likes of which emerges naturally on a regular basis? According to WHO, in 2018 “these (influenza) annual epidemics are estimated to result in about 3 to 5 million cases of severe illness, and about 290 000 to 650 000 respiratory deaths.” https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/influenza-(seasonal)
  11. That's probably the only "bickering" I've gotten into here in the five and a half years since I joined, but I can make it two for two now if you like?
  12. I didn’t actually introduce her to that previous topic, that was TSOS, and I didn’t want to further disrespect that thread subject at the time, but if you thought you could come the Billy Big Balls with complete impunity you were mistaken. Yes, yes, and yes. I wouldn’t have made the original comment if I didn’t. As you said to me not long back, “Sounds like you got some skin in the game” Charlie? Anyway, I'll shut the fuck up now and never mention her again, that's a promise.
  13. The usual defence is that we weren't in court and don't know the whole story, so there must be some extenuating circumstances that we're not aware of. Just don't go drawing any parallels with Lisa McGee, though, or @CharlieBrown will be along sharpish to tell you to fuck off.
  14. Hints of "Dexter" there. Of course, in these more eco-conscious days, it really ought to be a cardboard box rather than a bin liner.
