    I learned today whilst round my nan and grandads that on the channel 4 teletext that you can knock up a page which has short messages from people that were in the forces during the war and after that are looking for their old friends.

    Used neat on a kitchen sink (and chrome taps) distilled white vinegar cleans more effectively than any of the kitchen cleaners you can buy in the shops...

    last night i learned that cheapo supermarket coke is rubbish compared to the real stuff, and that it ruins a potentially great drink.

    today i must learn what happened after about 8.30 last night.

    I learned that if a child asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is "God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is "Probably because of something you did."

    I learned today... never clear out pantrys which haven't been cleared out for a while alone because S P I D E R S live there and don't really welcome being disturbed :_|

    I also learned today never to buy another cooker because when you remove the old one there's always a mess that can only be removed with amonia... and that when on the TV it tells you to wear a dust mask IT DOES NOTHING AND YOU STILL CHOKE :_|

    *Waits until vision and speech returns to normal so I an go off to the firestation to 'borrow' a respirator... and a fireman... not that the two are related ideas* :p

    Nope, sorry Nic according the local Police it's called Common Assault and the saying has got something to do with a competition and doesn't allow you to beat anyone with anything, not even their own shoes. :eek:

    Well Nic you could always invite these people over to your house and do it when they're inside, this isn't against the law, apparently now ! unless they die, then it is.

    I've also learnt that dropping a bus on someones head isn't reasonable force, I thought it sounded very reasonable.
