I'm pretty sure the Greeks had all that covered well before the Romans. I seem to remember one of my daughters studying the history of Sparta in 8th grade, and it was not pretty. Lots of anal sex and killings, usually in that order.

All right, I'll grant you that the aqueduct and the sanitation are two things that the Romans have done..

I like our royals, but today I saw this tungsten shining from the Vogue cover and looked away in dismay.

It's nice that Megan promotes veganism even if she's not a vegan herself and Harry wants to protect biodiversity even if he contributes to its decline by hunting, but when they start to hit too high notes, they just sound false and shallow.

But at least the fonts aren't pink.

You are being too optimistic. The herd is going in the opposite direction.

How no-deal Brexit will affect travel bookings, currency exchange and duty free

I'm fascinated with one statement:
"Experts have predicted that a no-deal Brexit could mean long queues at the border and a loss of consumer rights"

An expert in prediction could possibly be a cartomancer or another fortune-teller. Predictions are subjective statements, biased opinions. One can predict the result of a coin toss. I don't know what else will happen or not after no-deal or not Brexit, because I got stuck on that sentence.

I don’t necessarily read the Telegraph with the most charitable of eyes, but in this case I suspect the writer is referring to experts on border crossings and consumer rights. Who might be more reliable than any old fortune teller. Or not...

I thought that prediction is not scientific. The name suggest it's fore-telling, from Latin, and thus only foreteller can be the expert in foretelling :-)
OK, I'm stupid. The "could mean" confused me.
