  1. I would like to see some of the ancient Egyptian sites but, aside from that, I can't think of any good reason to go there.
  2. Electric seems unlikely but combustible non-fossil fuels are not impossible. Either that or a fucking big catapult.

    Agreed. It’s basically the same in Canada too. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/canada-s-age-of-consent-raised-by-2-years-1.754941
  4. They get that way when they’re not heavily used (e.g. if you mainly ride on the flat). They can be de-squeaked by carefully cleaning the disks with stainless steel cleaner and scrubbing the pads with wire wool or something else a bit, but not too, abrasive.
  5. With that criminal record - penalty free or otherwise - she wouldn’t be able to pass the background checks to work for any bank I know of. Just staggering that she’s allowed to run a central bank.
  6. About 35 GBP including tax a month at current exchange rates for 100 down / 10 up cable internet. Only 1 meaningful outage in 10 years and the latency to most major sites is very low so, all in, not bad. I have a friend who get 1gb symmetric into his apartment for about 50 GBP a month via a direct fibre line into the building.
  7. Converging geometric series are possibly a bit too sophisticated for most post office staff! I did once watch somebody calculate the sum of one using a spreadsheet, which was a bit of an eye opener.
  8. P + (P*R)/(1-R) where P is the price of the stamp and R is the rate of the tax.
  9. I guess. For once though I’m with the SJWs on something. Turing was a mathematical genius and a hero of the war effort and the only thanks he got was a prison sentence and a prescription for some horrible sex hormone suppressing drug.
