Re: Irrelevant, in a relevant sort of way
Seems appropriate for some reason....
Re: I'm unclear
That's ok, I'm not a chef but I thnk I can manage to panfry it.
<---Now we're cooking on gas!
Re: I'm unclear
Your skull goo is safe - probably.
I have dibs on your liver though.
It's a good start...
Now vat grow me some bacon!
Re: Just had a thought
Given where the bulk of your calories came from (bread and rice) the weight loss might not be particularly high.
Re: Aloe Vera for that?
Nah, if anyone was channelling Miss Bee then there whold have been a ODFO included.
Sarah, if you are reading this, you are sorely missed.
Re: Time to go foraging?
You mean going freegan?
Re: Flat journalism
Yep hottest decade for 5 decades.
Re: Renewable Energy
"Proven reserves are dwindling"
You don't actually know what proven means in respect of oil exploration do you?
I know it's wiki but it looks fairly correct.
Unproven reserves can become proven if economic conditions change - such as the oil price rises.
Re: Only quoting the bits where Steig agrees with you?
The PUBLIC SECTOR however is a different matter...
there... fixed that for you.
Re: Run the badgemaker again please!
Yep name change in 30 March 2012 - no anon since name change (why bother its not my traceable name and I only went anon for topics where I had opinions contrary to my employers). Over 400 posts prior to the name change though since Feb 2008.
Re: Make of it what you will
Kind of on par with the Yanks receiving a medal for flying over a "war zone" - particularly when that war \one was Northern Ireland......
Dark City? noooooooooo!
Dark City is the only film which at the end I wanted the last two hours of my life back.
It would have got you a downvote but you also mentioned They Live which is definitely worth a countering upvote.
Re: Whatever. Random... (@IHateWearingATie)
Do have a bow, couple of swords, axes (felling, hand and throwing) spears and javelins.
Oh and body armour.
All of which are in working condition.
There again, they should be given re-enactment season starts again in April.
Re: @Dennis Wilson (was: Lucky)
Sounds a bit like the intro from Sam and Max hit the road:
Sam (holding a bomb): Max, where should I put this so it doesn't hurt anyone we know or care about?
Max: Out the window, Sam. There's nothing but strangers out there.
Sam: (looks at the bomb in his hand and throws it out the window behind him)
(Bomb explodes outside the windows)
Sam: I sure hope there was no one on that bus.
Max: No one we know, at least...
Could it be...
...the remains of Beagle 2?
Re: NAAFI break aka Tea NATO
More often prepared in a Norgie container,
It's 50% milk and has been stewed so long it's still a dark orange in colour.
Also contains enough sugar to make a dentist cry.
- but it is hot and wet and that's all that really matters in the middle of somewhere like Otterburn ranges (which is always cold and wet).

Pretty sure Inquisitor is owned by the Catholic Church.
Thats mine, the one with the collar.

I don't expect this to change anything
Afterall if there is a difference between reality and the climate models it's always reality that is at fault.
Re: "no-poaching" agreements
Nope, as "resources" - something to use up.
Re: Normalised homophobia is not a contemporary development
Bennies? What's this about Falkland Islanders*?
*Now known as "Stills" as in "They're still fucking Bennies" After the MOD banned the forces from refering to the Islanders as Bennies.
"Hardcore" American porn?
I always found the European stuff to be more hardcore....
Bring back incandescent (sp?) lights then.
No Mercury, the heat output would help in ultra-insulated homes.
Anecdotal evidence - but my bathroom is far colder first thing in the morning with 3x60w equivalent CCF bulbs rather than the 180w of incandescents taking the chilll off the room.
Beer as its the closest to a lightbulb shape...
Re: As if..
Just don't mention the Harold Shipman episode of the Roley Mo Show.....
Re: Correlation =/= Causation
Doubt you would find many that fell into group 2.
Most hardened gamers have a pretty good idea how to use common household items as weapons, especially if they tabletop gamed for any period.
Now who's for a game of Killer (tm Steve Jackson Games)?
Re: What if?
"We manage to ban guns and remove them totally from society?
a would be killer will use an axe or a kitchen knife.
so we ban them."
You will take my axes from me over my cold, dead body.....
sorry what were you saying?
Re: Guns don’t kill people.
Yep, so does a shovel, with the added benefit of you can use it to help dispose of the body afterwards.
Re: Vampires are now soooo 1830s, dear!
Whitby Gothic Style!
Re: @some beggar
Provided that you agree that the opposite (artificial =good and natural=bad is utterly moronic) holds true as well.
Re: @some beggar
So you were just being objectionable for the sake of it?
whoosh straight over your head there.
I didn't say it was a good rule of thumb just that I would prefer a natural product to a synthetic one.
You keep eating transfats and hydrogenated fats and I'll stick to saturated animal fats, thank you very much.
Opium, Hemlock, Belladonna - fair enough, I'm quite partial to several members of the nightshade family (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers...) but cyanide? has to be processed to extract it, ricin? has to be processed from castor beans.
Re: Sweet Poison
Does not look like there was any analysis between type of sweetener (aspartame, sucralose, Acesulfame K, sodium sacharin, etc).
Regardless of the hype/fud from either side of the pro/anti sweetener fanatics, sweeteners tend too be too damn sweet and I prefer good old fashioned raw cane sugar if I have to have it (sugar from sugarbeet tends to leave an aftertaste if fermented, raw cane doesn't) ansd the less processing the better.
I'm looking at stevia to replace the small amount of sugar i have in a bucket of coffee since it is a plant extract rather than something that is only found in a testube.
@ Graham Marsden
Glad it works for you Graham, your diet certainly wouldn't work for me - I'm a Coeliac and bread -wholemeal or otherwise is not a good way to go (either it tastes like bread should, contains wheat and triggers a immune response or it's gluten free and tastes minging).
You're welcome to the beer I can't drink too (barley) hence the icon.
Re: Three simple bits of information:
Two bits of information that have worked wonders for me (2 stone lost effortlessly so far)
1: Carbohydrates control insulin.
2: Insulin controls fat storage.
So cut your carbs to a lower level (say 100 to 150g per day - not low enough to trigger ketosis) and the spare tire disappears quite nicely.
I'm now dropping carbs to between 50 and 100g a day just to get rid of the last stone and a half.
Lots of fruit and veg (this is where my carbs come from) lots of meat and fish - most of my calories come from saturated animal fats. My dietician is happy, my cholesterol is low and I take no medications.
Penguin, because I'd fry one and eat it.
Re: Each paragraph of your post is untrue.
Glad you explained why each paragraph is wrong....
Re: "Surely they're harmless."
That's what the dropbears want you to think.....
Re: Goodness gracious - " ... the tanned hides of five mice ..."
reminds me of Red Sofia from Cerebus: -
Red Sofia: "What do you think of these?!" (Flashes breasts)
Cerebus:"If you stopped wearing chainmail the scars would go away."
Re: @ AC - "I have never found porn on the internet by accident."
Then you're missing out, accidental porn is the best kind.
Re: Second Life?
Maybe gaming ( I played Guildwars for a while - so much so I cant face buying GW2 for more of the same) is different to SL, but if youre going to spend a couple of hours more or less staring at a running arse whilst twitching at keys it might as well be a shapely female one.
Also - there are no women on teh interwebs!
Paris for staring at.
