    That's what the recovery guy told us. Though google doesn't think so. It seems it's not a legal requirement to carry a spare, so I can't believe it would be a legal requirement to carry a repair kit. From here -
    In the UK it is not a legal requirement to carry a spare tyre, but it is advisable. If you do have one remember to carry out these safety checks on that one too, although legally if it is stowed away then it doesn’t need to be up to legal standards – it just makes sense to keep it that way.
    Looks like recovery guy was talking bollocks. Guess we should have checked before paying for a replacement. Live'n'learn.

    My sister and I had to go to a lawyer a few weeks ago to settle some estate stuff. The lawyer calls in some articling student:

    'Felipé...can you please make me two copies of this [a two-page document]?'

    'Sure!'

    About five minutes later, he comes back and hands him four sheets of paper.

    'Felipé, where are the originals?'

    'They're in the out-tray on the copier. These are the copies. I'll go back and get the originals now.'

    Later, he asked Felipé to put the office legal seal on some stuff, which he returned without having done that one thing.

    'Oh, the seal. Right...'

    Now, when anything goes wrong, our shorthand is "Oh, Felipé..."

    Oh, and, did anyone know there was a State Visit of 45 to the United Kingdom? Apparently, after his Tweets (and not including any of the other fucking radio shit that he has said and done), it's still on.

    We had one of those. The cub wouldn't let us near him with it.
    It has a filter in it so no snot reaches your gob. You suck gently and the snot goes into a reservoir.
    Babies can't blow their own noses, you see, and they can't use Oxymetazoline either.

    You think that's gross? I know of parents who've had to do similar without the "nasal aspirator", sucking out the snot and then spitting it out, of course, if they really loved their child...

    I was down a wikihole, (day night cricket > super tests > drop in pitches) when I came across this.

    "Plans to use drop-in pitches in baseball parks in the United States have met with problems due to strict rules about transporting soil over state lines. It has been found that the best soil types for drop-in pitches are not located in the same states which have been targeted by cricketing authorities—New York, California and Florida."

    That can't be true can it?

    It was plan b or c for going after Al Capone if the tax thing hadn't worked out.

    There's a direct train service from Bournemouth to Manchester? Nice. I love these random cross-country routes, the more the better.

    Excellent. The Toronto Star (IIRC) ran a photo years ago of some young black kids dancing with "yo yo yo some rap shit caption goes here".

    Today, in an article on the Dr Boucher / Dr (Rand) Paul feud that lead to the tackle/assault, Boucher is referred to as 'a retired anestheologist'.
    Is that a guy who puts you to sleep by taking about religion?

    Out of interest, do we know if the sales figures were affected by this? I have a sneaky suspicion, especially in a studenty town such as Cambridge, that they probably went up. I'd have been more likely to buy it, for one.

    The 22-year-old and a group of friends mixed seven bags of Polyfilla before pouring it around his head, which was protected by a plastic bag inside the appliance.
    SEVEN bags of Polyfilla.

    Yeah. I mean everyone knows that Polyfilla's way too crumbly to use for casting purposes.

    Darwin Awards season again is it?

    'As funny as this sounds ...'

    No, it doesn't sound at all funny. Just because you're one of the rescue team doesn't mean you have to be polite to them*. It sounds incredibly unfunny, and also like one of the most monumentally fucking stupid things I've ever heard of someone doing voluntarily. What exactly were they expecting to happen? For the guy to die? Hilarious.


    *I mean, it probably does mean that, really, but ...
