Re: Speeches, Essays and other things

Possibly. But “you’ve now read” is vaguish about when the books were read. It does carry an air of “at last,” as intended. I quite like the sentence.

I am often unintentionally brilliant. In fact probably more often unintentionally than not.

Re: Brexit - the last 50 days

We could easily fill a thread with toilets around the world. The different ball-cocks, sucking versus blowing (not sure about the terminology), bottom warmers, "observation decks," hose pipes and water jugs, holes in the ground (which way are you supposed to crouch? I've never figured that out), uri...

Re: Brexit - the last 50 days

There was the time I tried plumbing. I think I've mentioned before that I have a 97% success rate with joints. Turns out that anything less than 100% is problematic. Then there was the time I ran out of dishwasher tabs so used a liquid detergent instead. I'd definitely recommend that if you are at a...

Re: Thank you Harvey Weinstein

Yes. Rich, powerful, friends in high places, might have had some sort of immunity deal, had experience of prison, some say he had Narcissistic Personality Disorder. All point to not being the suicidal type. (Although I am surprised more paedophiles don’t kill themselves.) Unless it’s murder! A consp...

Re: Brexit - the last 50 days

On the ethics of a no-deal Brexit: https://www-rte-ie.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/www.rte.ie/amp// I wouldn’t take the opinion of one academic philosopher too seriously, and I really don’t think he argued his case terribly well. The opening sentence has a quintuple negative! I have a problem with even d...

Re: Brexit - the last 50 days

What payment should the UK demand from the EU to reopen negotiations?
I think Ireland should chip in a few large. If they had their way the EU would throw Ireland to the wolves in pursuit of their anti democratic dream.

Re: Top Inventions

Mr Clean magic eraser. If Deflandre had really wanted to make it big he should have partnered up with someone to introduce the magic eraser to the UK. I have to get mine through Amazon.
