  1. There is a Suez Road in Cambridge. It predates the crisis though.
  2. Same as most of New York City. It also has the imaginatively named Alphabet City where the streets have letters instead of numbers. Then there’s Back Bay in Boston that has alphabetical street names. Oh, and Iqaluit only had house numbers until 20 years ago: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/street-names-a-sign-of-changing-times-in-iqaluit-1.278222
  3. If people are interested in hearing some good things about Jesuits (who are getting some pretty dreadful press right now), this is a fascinating and thoughtful set of three podcasts on the subject by Malcolm Gladwell: http://revisionisthistory.com/episodes/35-the-standard-case
  4. I take it you’re not a Mel Brooks fan (I know Carl certainly isn’t)?!
  5. I want rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shit-kickers and Methodists.
  6. Well, this is Wikipedia, so take it with a big pinch of salt: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_Travellers “Although they are often referred to as "Gypsies", Irish Travellers are not genetically related to Romani Gypsies.” So I guess you are not in danger of being literally Hitler.
  7. Are Pikeys actually Gypsies for the most part?
  8. There are one or two streets named after councillors in Cambridge but I remember a big argument about it in the early 90s and it seemed to stop after that. My take is that no-one should get a street named after them until they've been dead at least a hundred years. If they're still memorable after that, then fair enough.
  9. I also forgot to say their accounts showed they had 3 employees at the end of 2019. So, either the entire operation (packing and labelling included) is outsourced, or they are each packing 400K's worth of cheese each per year.
  10. From the website: "Our full name is Cheshire Cheese Online LLP." This is them: https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/company/OC389472 Last set of accounts that go up to end of 2019: Total exemption full accounts made up to 30 November 2019 The only fixed assets they have are the (depreciated) values of one or maybe two laptop computers so, as Sypgril says, they're not manufacturing anything themselves. Their accounts don't mention turnover but, since they aren't audited, they must be a micro-entity with turnover below 600K. But.... the Gr
  11. Not packed, but enough to give our resident antisemites and conspiraloons a fit of the vapours.
  12. When you first arrived we had the land and you had the bible. Now we have the bible and you have the land.
  13. So we know you hate Jews and gays Carl, what say you to disabled people, Gypsies and Slavs?
  14. I took a look at the pet food section of my local supermarket here in Toronto yesterday and, interestingly, we’re short on tinned pet food too (could just be timing of course).
