  1. Change it to a currency that's appreciating from one that's sliding down the pan.
  2. I thought the cables were there to hold the poles up, not the other way round.
  3. Definitely! However, bear in mind that commercial tv isn't free. A proportion of what you spend in the supermarket, and elsewhere, goes to pay for the adverts. Admittedly though, the way the BBC is funded is well past its sell-by date. And by the way, the dog licence was done away with about 50 years ago.
  4. £147 a year is a small price to pay for quality tv without any <deleted> adverts!
  5. New RAM or new laptop?

    Cleaning the RAM module edge connectors with isopropyl alcohol is my method. Less chance of static damage to the chips than using the rubber.
  6. What's the problem? I though dual pricing for farangs was the norm in Thailand.
  7. Owner receives letter granting dog unemployment benefits

    Dogging in a restaurant. Whatever next?
  8. Rat caught on camera taking a shower like a human

    Behind mozzies which deserve to be first in the queue.
  9. Pattaya... The trees along the beach side of Beach Road are festooned with yellow lights, a number of which are damaged or missing. Taking a closer look at a busted one, reveals that these consist of six LEDs, and several components which enable each of them to be powered directly from 230V ac mains. Live components are therefore exposed. Besides this hazard, the empty lamp sockets also have live exposed contacts. Sooner or later someone's going to get zapped.
  10. I had the dubious pleasure of visiting Minsk three years ago. I can assure you that all the bs involved when both entering and leaving the country remains the same, if not worse. Swampy's a breeze in comparison.
  11. I bet it gets bunged up when it hits a wet patch of sand though.
  12. So people who vape are avoiding paying the excise duty on cigs. Following this logic, I and millions of other non-smokers are also not paying this tax. Should we be worried? could we be fined and slung in the slammer for committing this heinous crime?
  13. The poor woman better not visit Cerne Abbas, Dorset, or Google the Cerne Abbas Giant. She'd die of shock.
  14. Nice try Thailand, but the top prize for silly ideas still goes to San Pedro del Pinatar in the south of Spain, which announced 750 euro fines for peeing in the sea earlier this year.
  15. the dangers of Beach Road traffic

    Even if the cars/buses do stop for pedestrians to cross, there will be motorcycles speeding through the gaps between them. Cross with extreme caution!
