Whichever is on offer at the offy!

Plus a couple of bottles of that malt stuff from Nigeria.

Depends how many tins of Guinness I've had.

Five guys do unlimited refills, but the cup is 5 fucking quid. Similar tale in Marugame Udon.

And that's on top of a tenner each for the burger. At least they don't police whos cup is whos.

I've pinned this post to the instance.
One of the best things we can do is encourage everyone to get to get registered, and get ready to vote.

Congrats Frank, please don't change the title to something horrid while I'm busy :)

Sounds good to me. If you're getting a builder to do it, you're almost definitely better off with whatever system they're happy using.
Everyone will have their preference that they feel most comfortable with.

Honestly, I reckon it's 6 of one, half a dozen of the other. Over 25 years, it'll probably do the same job.

I honestly don't hate this policy. Keeping at least 3 days supplies with rotation is just common sense, right?
If something knocked the power/water out for a couple of days, every person with something in store is one less person the authorities have to worry about, until things either stabilise or get worse.

And also to rotate through it.
Use the emergency food in regular cooking, and replace it. This avoids things going off.

It shouldn't be "lump it on the tax payers" or "we can't do anything, because innocent pension holders may lose out".
It's like the bad guy in the movie holding a hostage so they don't get shot.

The haircuts should be extracted from the people responsible: The funds that felt it was appropriate to include asset stripping of public utilities in general pension funds, and the executives they put in place/votes they cast at AGMs to make it happen.

If that means that general pension funds fall, the holders should be going after the ones who mismanaged their pension, not the poor bastards having their water bills doubled, or having the cost of bailing out heaped on their government.

I've pondered on this a bit.
Maybe the funds that thought it was appropriate to put for-profit public utilities in a pension fund should be the responsible parties, along with the water company executives they put in position to facilitate the asset stripping.

If they leave the country, we can assign a man with a portable bucket of sewage.
We will have no issues finding such a man: Most of Thames Water's customers would pay for the privilege.

I've previously advocated for the the first 1000L of any sewage runoff to be directed through executive's houses.

Maybe they would enjoy experiencing it first hand.

They did, however, do a public good.
I'm sure Channel 4 loses similar amounts for some of the Dispatches.

£1bn/year cost, apparently.
I wonder if that still applies if a monarch dies.

Mine have always been a bit functional, and I'm curious what more creative people have achieved.

Anyone fancy showing off what they've put together? Feel free to blank out personal information, obviously.

And on another note, I'm now moderating this sub. Hi!
Let me know if there is anything you'd like to see added to the sidebar, I'm aiming to update it over the next few days.

I know, it's a meme at this point "Tories collapse: Find out why this is bad for Labour"
