Anna Siren- the heathen of the deep, according to iTunes...

"Fans" going mental going Sherlock spoilers. The canon was written a hundred or so years ago. If you read it, you know how it goes. They're modernising it. That's fine. Stop whining over spoilers; if Mark Gatiss (writes for said show with Steven Moffat) tweets something like "Amused by notion of spoilers for story written in 1893!", this is NOT "cruel" or "disrepectful", or spolery. It's Mr Gatiss quite amused by this notion, which makes me happy. This "fan" makes Raks look sane...

I don't talk about Fitba, even in the fitba season, so we can play smiley - devil together smiley - laugh

PH. Sports 'seasons' that have grown to cover 11 months and 3 weeks of the year, and during the 1 week closed season, having to listen to people moan about missing said sport. smiley - smiley

Ok, this is a real petty hate. When double-ply toilet roll isn't properly perforated and you end up with two sheets that don't match.

That's not a perforation problem. It's the two 'plies' not being adequately bonded. One has become unwound further than the other. Unwind the layer that doesn't match up (should be easy to figure out which it is) and the perforations should match again.

No, it's a perforation problem. More specifically it's a problem that comes when flat paper is wound around an axis - and the more the diameter grows the worse the problem becomes.

Pi is probably involved. smiley - winkeye

That's what you get for buying cheap bog roll smiley - winkeye I do find that what's often happened is that a ply has become seperated and you're in effect unwinding the bottom layer from one sheet and the top layer from the next sheet. Unwinding one layer usually does solve it.

Or buy better loo roll smiley - cheerup

I buy perfectly good bog roll, but I also, on occasion, use public toilets. smiley - tongueoutsmiley - laugh

...and choosing which toilet to use by the brand of toilet paper they use would just be weird.

PH: the office toilet paper. They have a normal-sized holder, but it's always empty and there's one of those industrial-sized rolls balanced on the edge of the sink instead, so one side is always damp smiley - yuk

Mr. Dreadful - But really I'm not actually your friend, but I am...

Blokes who do a wee, then dry their hands without first washing them.

Logically their hands must've been wet for them to feel a need to dry them, but if they didn't wash their hands after weeing there's only one reason why their hands would be wet.

smiley - yuk

deb - I'm in love with my soup maker & I don't care who knows it

I watched a programme last night (If Walls Could Talk) in which they said women hundreds of years ago used wee to get stains out of their washing. Apparently it's really effective.

Not gonna try it though smiley - yuk

Deb smiley - cheerup
