  1. I've been to a few houses in the US where the tap water seems really foamy.. they just seem to like it that way.
  2. British politeness, and inertia, i.e. reluctance to shop around and transfer accounts (I've had my account at this branch for 20 years, they know me etc.) is how they stay in business.
  3. Every cloud.. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-63367738
  4. That aged well. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-63368396
  5. "crown dependencies and British Overseas Territories attempt to move away from the UK’s failed experiment at cannabis prohibition" https://volteface.me/bermuda-cannabis-reforms/ I think perhaps, our rock didn't get that particular memo 😄
  6. I remember the blackouts from the 1970s. Isn't that what the Tories warned us would happen under Corbyn 😄 At least EV owners can't have the electrons syphoned out of their tank. Yet.
  7. When you buy stuff on Amazon, it's often not clear where it comes from. I ordered a couple of batteries (to be posted to a UK address) , one came in 2 days, the other nearly 2 weeks, as it turned out it was sent from France. It might be amazon UK, or (some other location of amazon) , or 'marketplace' , where some random 3rd party business is the actual supplier, just using amazon as a retail platform.
  8. 1st week I moved to the Island, some reet sludge came out of the tap. "There may be some discolouration", said the note through the door. For a long time, all the water I consumed went through a filter jug.
  9. Well how about that. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-62209927 #rocket #feather
  10. https://www.bostonherald.com/2022/07/05/suspected-chicago-area-shooter-escaped-dressed-as-a-woman/
  11. We could do this with, say, Loughtan sheep https://www.digitaltrends.com/news/icelandic-horse-write-out-of-office-emails/
  12. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greek_chorus
  13. Meanwhile, on the other Island: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-61584546
  14. Could build an 'exclusive' terminal for HNWI where Hall Caine used to be. Then again, that'd mean pissing away millions on a white elephant project with nothing to show for it.
  15. When you travel to the US (and possibly other countries too) there is a box you have to fill out on the application 'have you ever been arrested' . Not 'convicted', no time limit mentioned. Now they'll have to tick the 'yes' box forever, and there's a good chance they'll not be allowed in.
  16. I've worked at a place where if you smoked, you could have a fag break every hour or so. Non-smoker? chained to your desk.
  17. My school turned out to be a dumping ground for thugs with rich parents, who wouldn't be expelled no matter what, because they wanted your money. Out of my class of 20-ish, only a few -weren't- caned. I only went there cos I passed the exam for a subsidised scholarship, and my folks were suckered by the hype that 'it's a private school, therefore it has to be better'. All the teachers had the mandate to issue canings, not just the head. Supposedly there was a log of what happened, but say you coughed or something, on the 5th stroke out of 6. The teacher would say 'now you've made me lose count boy' , and do another 6. It would then be entered in the logbook as 6.
  18. https://www.politicshome.com/news/article/customs-ukraine-aid-border-poland-brexit#:~:text="The UK has committed a,supplies%2C" the spokesperson continued.
  19. Well that didn't take long
