Wish I was there J
  3. Thank you, indeed so. Joke to keep in the spirit of the topic... Subject: Inner Peace · I am passing this on to you because it definitely worked for me today, and we all could probably use more calm in our lives. This morning, I read about a doctor who says the way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started. So I looked around my house to see things I'd started and hadn't finished. Since then, I have managed to finish off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of Chardonnay, a bodle of Baileys, a butle of wum, a pockage of Prungles, tha mainder of bot Prozic and Valiuminun scriptins, the res of the chesescke an a box a chocletz. Yu haf no idr how bludy fablus I feel rite now. · Plaese sned dhis orn to dem yu fee ar in ned ov iennr pisss.. An telum,u blody luvum.!! Sray sage Juwumn
  4. Fuel has colour, the bags were clear liquid. A set-up video wouldn't be out of the question. Julian
  5. Co-incidentally, I am also a Governor of a Primary School and we went through very similar set of calculations to the School that Compound relates. There were two other factors which also added to the problems for the Head Teachers of Schools, I'm sure also at Compound's School. 1. At the same time as the Gov't decision about the return of some children to schools, they were saying that we could meet with one only person, from outside the family and only then at a distance of more than 2 metres. Pupils and their adult staff were stated to be allowed to meet in groups and would be expected to expose themselves to less than 2 metres and for extended periods of the day!! {Note, there was no medical, or other information about how the virus would behave differently in Schools. I have yet to see any, since.} Without being in the slightest bit cynical {tempting 'though that is} and without any information from the Gov't on how that difference might be reconciled, their motives look to be questionable. They are what led to my supposition that children's lesser reaction to the virus may be being used as a lower rate viral distribution, to move towards Herd immunity. True or not, their assumption that school children and their teachers could should be more exposed, than the rest of the population, seems an extraordinary piece of mental skulduggery. 2. Many Schools were also dealing with a previous set of instructions about being open for the children of Essential Workers, regardless of their year group. That had resulted in our school with 65 such pupils and many other schools with similar numbers. There will be few of you who cannot instantly see that 7 classrooms, 65 pupils, classrooms, each with less than 15 pupils, bubbles of 8 max, one member of staff allocated to each bubble, work to be provided for those still at home, marking of all the homework, time for planning for all of these..... doesn't exactly leave much room for the introduction of 3 more full classes of 30 pupils. Relating to the jokes thread? The Gov't think we won't see through what they wish on our children and teachers. ..... Julian
  6. No worries, it's rather like the false accounting for carbon emissions, the space required for his ego is far more than compensated by the negative space required for his brain. Julian
  7. Govt trials are poised to start, called "need for education", on similar principles, in schools in England. The principle is based on keeping the pupils in small groups back at school, separated into smaller groups called bubbles, in the hope that they will spread the virus in a less rapid way than letting them run about freely. This will spread the virus from the pupils of infected families to other families and teachers, more slowly. The principle is based on the lower rate of youngster's deaths, whilst ensuring the transfer of the virus from one infected family to several other families. Eventually it is hoped that this will achieve the Herd Immunity which might let the govt off the UK death figures. To make this easier, the returning classes are recommended to be divided into two half size groups [with bubbles, within] and separated into different rooms. Existing staffing are to be appropriately deployed to care for the increased number of groups, well of course they will. The same staff, whilst taking part in the virus spread, are also going to be required to provide both education materiel and feedback for the online education of those pupils still at home. The recent events involving political advisors might make some people somewhat doubtful of how realistic the plan might be and the possible outcomes. It also raises the question, of when do the remainder of the classes return, given that will mean full size classes back in their original classrooms? I am reminded of the old saying "Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive." Julian
  8. Surely best taken for a test, to check it's serviceability from time to time. Julian
  9. Many... many years ago, there was a mad Scottie down the road, which would launch itself at any passing vehicle, a real problem if you happened to be on a bicycle. A gent who used to pass every day on the way and returning from work, in a tiny Fiat 500. Actually he was a rather tall person and quite how he folded himself into something small enough for the car, is still a mystery to me. Eventually he got fed up with swerving to avoid running over the crazy critter. As he drove past, the dog hurled out from it's gateway hide, with the usual yapping tirade, at which point said gent slapped on the brakes, screeching to a halt, whereupon he flung the door open and leapt out. He turned towards the surprised creature, pointed at the car and said " Well!!... Well!!..... Now you've' got the Bl***y thing, what are you going to do with it!!" At which point he quietly turned and got back in the car and drove home. Hats off, all round to the gent, as the dog never chased another passing vehicle. Julian
  10. Oh very steady..... err, so I am reliably informed..... Julian
  11. American PMT jokes aren't funny, full stop! A dyslexic man walks into a Bra... Julian
  12. A soldier who survived a Mustard Gas attack, follwed by Pepper Spray, is now a seasoned veteran. I tried to scoop up some Fog, I mist. I knew a mechanic who became addicted to Brake Fluid - he reckons it's ok, 'cause he can stop anytime. Julian
  13. Anyone who has to remind all those around him, that he has a very high IQ score - is clearly not demonstrating it in word or deed. I may have said something similar previously, but it/he keeps demonstrating the principle. Julian
  14. The US hierarchy can hardly be seen as moved on from the system in favour back in those times. Voting for a King, every four years, rather than taking the sword to him, as and when, may just be seen as an improving step forward... although?? Julian
