  1. We could do this with, say, Loughtan sheep https://www.digitaltrends.com/news/icelandic-horse-write-out-of-office-emails/
  2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greek_chorus
  3. Meanwhile, on the other Island: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-61584546
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. https://www.politicshome.com/news/article/customs-ukraine-aid-border-poland-brexit#:~:text="The UK has committed a,supplies%2C" the spokesperson continued.
  9. Well that didn't take long
  10. Pint of milk (568ml) 60p, and now, half-litre of milk (500ml) also 60p.
  11. Cannabis compounds prevented the virus that causes Covid-19 from penetrating healthy human cells, according to a laboratory study published in the Journal of Nature Products
  12. We are experiencing a high volume of patients at the moment. You are currently 17th in the queue for a resuscitation team. Perhaps you would consider having an emergency on a different day, or using our app.
  13. I suppose they're going to arrest the entire Olympic judo team, for possessing knowledge useful in an act of assault.
  14. https://www.cnbc.com/2021/03/03/uk-hikes-corporation-tax-to-25percent-as-pandemic-supports-hits-407-billion.html
  15. This was when I was renting 20 years ago, on the IOM. I was definitely paying the rates, in addition to the rent.
  16. I've been in the position of renter and rentee. In all cases, the tenant pays rates/council tax. If you're on a fixed salary, then contracted hours 40, actual hours worked >100 , still get paid the same. How does 'working harder' give you more income?
  17. When the petrol's gone, will the horse trams be extended island-wide?
  18. Supermarket packaging is so clear that you can see the shelves.
