You do know that throughout British history garlic or "garlyck" has been used for not only cooking.
I think the first mention in writing goes back as far as the 11th century, it was used as an antibacterial dressing on the battlefield and also as a blood purifier when eaten.
Ramsons ( wild garlic or garlic lilly ) are also steeped in history as they may have been used as a meeting place, they are generally found in damp soil in woodland, usually near a water source, and can be found by the smell of garlic from a distance hence easy to find for non locals, all parts even the flowers are edible and the leaves make a nice addition to a salad if mixed in with the greens.
The there is the much unheard of garlic mustard or Jack of the hedgerow ( named because it can be found along roads or tracks in abundance ) which is native to this country and makes a nice addition to salad greens as well.
I could go on and on and on ( sorry ) but I did research for a thesis many, many years ago so I may have the dates wrong now due to a failing brane.
OK, OK I am going, mines the one with the plants growing out of the pockets.

"no, I don't bet - I just come across many interesting people"
As opposed to the average Sun reader where it would be page 3?
Paris, need I say more?
"I'm sure the Microsoft shills will be out in force"
Yeah, just read some of the posts on here.
That is all.
A humle opinion.
Being a "very" amateur solar observer I would like to point out that the sunspot activity has increased now this year so if there is a Maunder Minimum it may have passed, but the colder winters have corresponded exactly to the sun state.
It is a proven fact that when the sun is not very active the solar winds from coronal holes, CME's etc affect the outer layers of the earths atmosphere and magnetic fields which do in turn affect temperature.
I could cite more evidence but I do not want to make this post to big.
Now if you go back in history taking the solar cycle into account and align it to the recorded climate in my opinion you cannot refuse that there is no correlation between the two.
Please spend 5 mins to check the cycle out and form your own opinions.
Just my 2p worth.
Not very often I post a thread, I normally just snipe :-)
Boffin? Nah, I wish.

F2S/Opal here and now TT business, what a shower of shite, the webmail is a bloody abortion.
And do not mention the billing, every month I get a demand saying I am being cut off because of unpaid bills that had been paid the previous week by DD, the way it has been for years. Ever month I call the helldesk and they say "Disregard it is a cock up"
My speed has dropped by nearly half and this is supposed to be on a priority 1/20 contention line, I can only get 3+ meg due to distance from exchange but now I am lucky if I can hit 2 meg, it also decides to go walk about at different times which really screws my servers up.
Arghh! they make my blood boil.
I could go on* but as it is the weekend I shall try and keep the old BP level down.
*Oh I certainly could go on, and on, and on!
"I mean honestly - would you give that advice to your milkman? Your mum? Your kids? The job centre receptionist? They may all have this phone, and all experience its wretchedness."
No that would be stupid, almost as stupid as telling them it is because they are holding it wrong.
Thumbs up for the title alone amfM

RE: Thanks for that
I will take the fore on this one.
I am probably falling for the troll but what the hey after all it is the New Year.
Did you notice what section this is under?
Not sci or tech but bootnotes.

"However sending raw materials into space for assembly after reaching orbit is a good shot. I'm talking rolls of sheet metal, girders/framework. PV panels, Screws and Fixings, etc."
So if there is a malfunction and the power is not enough for orbit at least the houses that will be demolished by the stuff coming back will have the tools and supplies needed to repair the damage.
that's the Google modus operandi

I did not know that was included, I will gladly pay double for that and stand in line.
The aspect of Treason that describes this behaviour would be -
(f) engages in conduct that assists by any means whatever, with intent to assist:
(i) another country; or
(ii) an organisation;
Seems clear enough this leak hasn’t just affected the US, but lots of other countries almost certainly including Australia.

I presume this works without the soldier having to stand up and expose head and shoulders while looking at his display to get a reading or does a long stick and some gaffer tape come supplied?
