Shit you just learned (probably from the internet.)

Luckily at O Level the most advanced you got was Rutherford and a slight lean into Einstein:) the teacher is what really matters and ours was fucking ace. He also taught RE, which he said was the development of man’s early fascination with the stars and planets, thus started a two year astronomy course but without the exam. :slight_smile:

Today I learned that there is a thing called ‘waffle stomping’
I think I know what it means but will not google it

Welcome to 2003.

Only recommended for runny emergencies, firm floaters are a nightmare and the plumber WILL know how it got there, and will charge you extra…


It’s a great idea to fit a garbage disposal unit to both the bath and shower for situations like this.

Also makes it much easier when cutting up bodies in the bath,

PS - one of those beafy american units is great for dealing with bone.


Good for quick work when you’re expecting a knock at the door, but getting stuff like that forensically clean is a 'mare! I’ve gone organic for those few leftovers that Ginsters don’t want: free-range pigs are so thorough, just have to pick-up the occasional tooth…


They go through bone like butter


All this following a discussion of O Levels up thread. Top posting :rofl:


Gavin Williamson is a chorus guy…



I’m still staring at this, I think there are eight, possibly nine aircraft in formation, I don’t know. Brilliant though.

News to me at least: arc welding can cause melanoma - apparently plenty of strong UV emission. Long sleeves and collars all-round nowadays :+1:

[Annoying 'strine warning - but we’re all accustomed to those here of course :wink: ]


Ignoring the ethnic attack, I was a MIG welder in another life. Elf’n Safety was only to stop you going off work.
Spatter burns, and welding flash aside, I have had 6 distorted moles removed as a legacy. Two needed further investigation but I was given the all clear.


:open_mouth: Jesus, I guess the issue is that much worse in 'Straya with the sun and outdoor culture as well!

Well, yes. I’ve had others removed which were unrelated to welding.
I’m in (possibly) the last generation to have cooked ourselves for fun.
It was in my late teens that we all became aware of the consequences. However, by that stage, most of us had already damaged our skin irreversibly.

I guess this is the first space parking and/or fly tipping fine.


Nice to see them taking action but if they had made it $15m or even better $150m it might have been a bit more of a deterrent to others, $150k will be viewed as a miniscule portion of operating cost. According to the article Dish’s overall revenue was $16.7bn in 2022.

MiL’s house is very nice.

It’s an architect-designed conversion of a cottage and an adjoining post office into a single large dwelling, tastefully furnished with a few modern bits.

Today I learned that the stair lift company noticed this, and have been on the phone.

Would she like to be in their ad campaign? She’d be dead famous and they would extend the warranty and annual servicing from five years to lifetime.

“Absolutely not!” :laughing:


Whose lifetime?
The Stairs?
The House?

The Latin generic name of the puff adder - responsible for more deadly snake bites than any other in Africa - is Bitis.

Oh Yes.

It most assuredly is.
