    BMW i3s do not by any stretch of a perverts imagination count as aspirational.
    A Honda Jazz has a better vibe than an i3.

    IIRC the problem with Venice was the weight of the buildings meant it was subsiding into the swamp it was built on.
    To blame climate change is a thick mayor taking the piss for money.
    Venice floods regularly and as this is not a record flood it is not news and definately not climate change.

    You should work hard at work not for your boss or the owners but purely for yourself, then once you've got the required skills/contacts take that work ethic and get an even better job or start your own biz. Trust me the lazy cunts at work who think they are getting one over on the management by skiving are only cheating themselves in the long run, ingraining into themselves a shitty attitude of doing the least amount possible and of victim mentality of being hard done-by.

    Where does it stop? Supposedly tall blokes earn quite abit more than short blokes. Shall we do a sub 6ft male pay gap?

    Fawcett lobbying for women to be able to ask how much men earn.

    Ive not a problem with that providing I can find out how many sick days a person has had too.

    So they can be made by machine, they are extruded and sliced.
    Anyway.
    Got some clay from the bottom of a ditch/stream last week near where a brickfield used to be so the clay should make bricks.
    So, I'm going to make some miniature handmade bricks and attempt fire them in the woodburner when I use it this winter.
    They used to do it in a field near where the bricks were to be used, this was especially true in rural areas like Cheshire, hence Cheshire brick.
    You basically made the bricks, let them dry a bit and stcked them on top of a bed of coal and set fire to it.
    A bit like this.
    I'm not odd, just bored with everyday things.

    You will like this then
    A Biologist and his academic buddies has created a huge database and software to find patterns in massive amounts of historical data.
    Reckons it will all turn to rat-shit in 2020 and you can blame politicians and their paymasters for that.

    Or you are on a low wage,bought a diesel because successive governments encuraged you to do so to cut C02 emissions, need to drive into central Bristol for work, and can't afford to change it.
    Time after time eco initiatives are hammering the low paid worker rather than the wealthy liberals.
    Funny that.

    Love this article.
     Whinging pensioner spunks over 40K (cash) on an electric car and moans about paying car tax.
    Jacky said she wanted to warn others who might get ‘caught in this trap’, and for the tax increase to be made clearer ahead of purchase as she would struggle to afford it.
    If your weren't such an idiot you would have bought a top notch Hyundia i10 and had £25000 to spunk on petrol and car tax.

    'Tax rules introduced in 2017 mean electric cars pay no car tax – but all cars costing more than £40,000 have to pay a supplement for five years on top of the standard £145 rate.'
    Seems fair to me.

    They (the real women) should refuse to compete when a trans is in the line-up.
    By refuse I mean just ride round together in solidarity after the trans has took the lead and let them win by a country mile on TV and hold hands in a line as they cross the finish.
    See what the governing body does about that.
    Women need to stand up against their oppressors.

    They keep going on about a 1:100 year flood as though thats good odds of it not happening.
    For Fishlake I present these photographs from the last 100 years from their own history society.
    .
    March 1923.

    1947

    Bits of the village are 5m above sea level with the outskirts being 4m above sea level and the River Don at this point has 12 miles to go before it gets into the Humber which is a fall of 1:5000 at mean sea level.
    Flooding is normal.
