    It’s massively confusing..  which is why I think all the ones that are being challenged are thrown out (some small hope for the justice system yet).
    As far as I can tell,  the moral of the story is..  if you get prosecuted,  fight it.  There’s a very high chance it will just be thrown out.  Which is good.  Because the laws are stupid, unnecessary and draconian.  IMHO of course.

    Maybe, I am at the pull it all down stage with the establishment it all has to go every last bit of it

    Following in the tracks of the various threads on “bulk buying” and “off the scale virtue signalling companies”..  I notice that that the “old spice” I used to buy in bulk is owned by Proctor and Gamble - of Gillette sexist anti masculinity fame.
    So I thought I’d look up Brut..  Apparently owned by Unilever of Ben and Jerry’s woke virtue signalling nonsense.
    The only independents not owned by these two seem to be hippies weaving eco friendly armpit paste out of aluminium free lanolin and hemp seeds..   which is fine,  but I’d rather have something manly and reeking of alcohol if possible.
    Is there really no choice in the market place out side of these two corporate monopolies?
    Perhaps someone can suggest something manufactured in the former eastern block with a macho label and at least 6 health warnings?

    Controlled opposition is better than no opposition at all I suppose..

    I only knew one Jonah (well,  Jonás..  he was Latino). 
    The guy fathered kids with numerous different girls before eventually being shot and killed by a jealous boyfriend/father at the age of 25. 
    I'd say that's pretty bad luck.  If somewhat deserved.

    I have a friend who called his daughter Ava, it did not down well when I started referring to her as Miss Braun.
    His second child is a boy, or Adolf as I know him.

    Libspero got a reaction from the gardener in Pandemic coming? - Coronavirus January 2021 onwards (Part 5)   
    Had to bite the link..  just to see who had put their name to that particular piece of Facebook research that looks like it could have been written by Sharon from Stockport.
    Only to find they are actually citing the scientific anecdotal findings of Sharon (ok, Joan) from Stockport 
    I know they’re all desperate to sell people on getting the jab and everything..  but that’s scraping the barrel..  even by DM standards.  
    Perhaps tomorrow they can run an article about Dave from Peterborough who won the lottery the day after his jab.  Coincidence?   Mystic Meg says you’d better get the shot just in case..

    For the record I cancelled the rightguard..  appears also to only be available as antiperspirant.

    Reminds me of all the stuff starting to surface with the whole Salmon / Sturgeon affair.
    Her government have been pushing for the most extreme / authoritarian wokeness this country has ever legislated..   yet when it comes down to it,  it appears she may be a completely vindictive,  power-corrupt titty-pussy (to quote the college mascot link above ).

    I think I associate spray deodorant with adolescence..  cheap and nasty fragrances that advertisers promised would make you a tower of attraction to women.  Less effective at reducing armpit smell,  more effective at creating a cloud of female repelling smog around the user

    That show has a lot to answer for..
    We regularly pass a canal boat called Ouroboros when we’re out walking the children.  Every time I see it I read “Our Rob or Ross” with visions of babies found under pool tables

    That article has it all.  It is a poster child for 'official misinformation'.
    In there we're got:
    Dubious scientific 'facts' Inferences from single examples, rather than actual statistical analysis of data Emotional manipulation (examples are 'emotional' diseases like cancer and Alzheimer's). Mucking about with graphs without saying (in this case, normalising the graphs for hospitalisations by age, with the result that Covid looks equally bad for younger vs older groups). Mixing up correlation with causation Conformation bias everywhere (nothing mentioned about negative aspects of the vaccines) And they didn't even mention the actually important fact, which is that the covid vaccine technology could be used to fight cancer and Alzheimer's disease -- but that we're 'using one option up' if we take a coronavirus jab (well, almost certainly in the case of the AZ, J&J and Sputnik jabs; it's less clear for mRNA).

    I don't think so, but am off there when I've drunk my tea so will let you know.
     
    Edit: @Libspero no they don't.  Decent range of spray and ball.

    Vodka in a spray bottle is a good deodorant. A bit pricey if you have to buy it although a 70cl bottle should last a year or so. When running my still, the first 500ml (90%+ abv) is diluted 50/50 and saved as cleaning fluid/deodorant.

    Libspero got a reaction from Stinky Wizzleteats in Buying a mattress online   
    I think there’s a lot of variation.
    I bought a “7 zone” one for about £100 from silent night for my daughter,  and for me it is actually as comfortable (if not more so) than our own fairly expensive sprung mattress.
    I then bought the 5-zone one for my son for the same price because I refused to pay what they were then charging for the 7 zone (about double).
    The latter is genuinely uncomfortable and I’ve never slept a good night on it. The only difference as far as I can tell is a slightly thinner layer of memory foam.

    For the avoidance of ambiguity,   lots of people have been successfully prosecuted..  but (as I understand it) everyone who did appeal (about 10%) had their charges/convictions dropped:
