Re: There is something sad about this

First they came for Assange

And I said nothing, for he is a bit creepy.

Then they came for Manning

And I said nothing

For he was denounced as a traitor

Then they came for Snowdon

And I said nothing

For he was condemned to eternal exile

Now they will come for us

And there is no one left to hear.

Apart from the Ear of the State.

With all due respects, Herr Niemöller.

Re: And is illegal in the UK

There was a case* of someone in a house under a powerline using a coil in the loft to get free power. It caused a noticeable effect in the Power Co monitoring systems, and also in an overhead thundercloud that blew his house up before TPTB could tack him down...

* May be a bit Urban Legendy...

However the Power Co systems are quite able to spot unexpected drain and standing wave anomalies etc, so who knows?

Re: hspasm Place your bets!

Tut tut.

You do seem to have issues with criticism, don't you. Must be past your bedtime.

Perhaps you shouldn't bother your little head with adult topics, you know they upset you so.

Now jump down from your oh so moral giraffe, have another bottle or two of tixylix or whatever it is you are addicted to and get some sleep.

You get such a potty-mouth when you are overtired.
