  1. Two Brass Eye references in one post? Nice.
  2. While Aldi stuff is generally decent, at my local one the main issue is the lack of stock management and rotation. Nothing that can't be remedied by checking the date on everything mind. Also, a lot of products are delivered in mixed cases, so quite often you end up with loads of boxes of pecan cereal, when all you want is some strawberry. Guess that's the result of their ultra-lean model.

    My understanding is that the body is either programmed to produce muscle or fat, depending on the levels of physical activity, so it stands to reason that most of these abominations probably don't get a huge amount of exercise, therefore any excess calories are converted directly into more fat.

  8. Exactly the same with the Scotsman. When JP took over they had huge offices in Edinburgh city centre. It's now operated out of crap rented offices in the north-west of town and printed in Glasgow! Journalistic standards have followed a similar path to your Evening Telegraph.

    Best Songs of the Eighties

    Bit of a specialist subject of mine. I'd go for I Believe In You from Spirit of Eden, although perhaps not in the spirit of this thread. From their more eighties-sounding oeuvre, I'd go for Life's What You Make It or the song Talk Talk.
