Re: Boris Johnson - the last 100 days

The damage has already been done by the appeasers, the two faced, the out of touch. It might not be salvageable.

Has anyone tried using a cigarette holder at the end of now-ubiquitous paper straws to stop them going soggy?

Re: Stupid question of the day

In the UK every time I see that road sign “Think Bike. Think Biker” I immediately think Bikest. (Not a question, just more on road signs.)

Re: Stupid question of the day

Why are the markings on the roads in the US reversed?

Instead of, say,

PED
XING

It will say

Re: trackstar's Needle Exchange

I had a nice jacket from Liberty. The fabric of the lining was indeed amazing. It was when big shoulders were in. If you can’t beat ‘em join ‘em I thought. Overnight big shoulders disappeared. One and only time I’ve tried to be fashionable.

Re: DL and PDEs

This could be a situation where less is more. I.e. keep quants and their models out of it. So don’t have a model that makes silly assumptions about what is stable.

Re: Boris Johnson - the last 100 days

You don't like book about countryside, or about peasants? What about Remarque, then? Only AQOTWF . Vaguely remember liking it. But just like everything I've ever read I can't remember the actual book, only at best my emotional response to it. I look at things I've written...can't remember a thing. ...

Re: I don't understand The Telegraph

There are so many nuances to democracy, so many subtleties of our political system and its mechanics, and so many examples of who said what to whom and when, that everyone can pick and choose bits to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that their position is the correct one.

Re: Boris Johnson - the last 100 days

Then I’ll read Agatha Christie!
