Re: "Best" invention of the 20th century?

Distiller remains the greatest invention of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. I'll be setting the plum vodka today. I always remove the stones from fruits (I don't want to produce Cyclone B - I'm not German), so my vodkas have a very delicate taste (they don't have the hint of bitterness from the s...

Definitely not with "my" nails. I can't understand why men like them... But then again, men are strange.

Re: Boris Johnson - the last 100 days

She had a strong French accent and gave a convinced speech that the UK will colla...
