Can we believe anything the Tories say?
at 12:44 5 Nov 2019

A government plan to create 200,000 new homes in England for first-time buyers has resulted in no homes being built, the National Audit Office has found. Announced in 2014, "starter homes" were meant to be aimed at those under the age of 40 and sold at a 20% discount.

Anyone due to be in London between now and Dec 8th and likes art stuff
at 14:59 29 Oct 2019

...this is worth checking out.

An immersive light/laser installation in the Strand... just went for a look in my lunch break and it's pretty cool considering it's free.

3 main rooms - the last one visualises animal noises in various parts of the world (like you're in the middle of a jungle... but with a sort of graphic equaliser showing all the sounds on the walls, which are also tagged with the names of the individual birds etc). I could've stayed an hour in that bit alone.

I've heard it's mega busy on weekends and evenings for obvious reasons, so you might want to avoid then if you can.

One thing London does very well is art.

to block out the outside world, but not too distracting so you can still do your work?

Worth checking if your phone contract is up
at 11:32 22 Oct 2019

and you're now paying more than you need to. I realised mine was, after a mate suggested I check. Just rang my provider saying I want a better deal or I'm off, they asked what I'd seen, and then based on that made me an offer.

I was on 1GB a month, unlimited texts (not sure about calls) for £29.90 a month. Now they've doubled my data to 2GB a month, unlimited texts and calls, for £8 a month!

What a difference for just one quick phone call.

I've been pondering again.

Religious folk believe that God created the universe. Fine. Those of you who are atheists, therefore, must surely believe the possibility that there are (or have been) lots of universes?

My thinking is this - we know a universe can come into being from, essentially, nothing. Because we're in one. And within that universe there is never just one of something. There are at least 2,500 species of moth in the UK alone, for example.

So it seems unlikely that only one universe would have developed. If it can happen as easily as it seems to have - and with no outside influence as you atheists believe - then it should have happened countless times? And presumably evolution would have happened in a similar way in all of these times?

I know the multi-verse theory isn't particularly new, but would you agree that if you don't believe God created one universe then it's highly like there are many, many universes (we just can't see/get to them because we're in this one)? When compared to all other events that are able to happen due to the laws of nature/physics etc. it's surely very very unlikely a universe would only come about just one time ever?

Those loveable Tories, again
at 22:53 15 Oct 2019

The Tories are trying to rig the coming election by insisting you must have photo ID to vote. We have never needed this before, we haven't had problems with fraud, and it will only disenfranchise the poorest from voting, the people who usually vote for Labour. 3.5 million have no photo ID, 11 million have no passport or driving licence.

Just another in the long list of dishonest politics in this country. Are we much worse than the rogue states we often castigate?

Even if you hate Corbyn you should be waking up to what's going on.

Extinction Rebellion have it right IMO. We need direct action to overthrow the absolute charlatans running this country.

Another one for the science bods - where does my consciousness come from?
at 15:13 7 Oct 2019

Presumably if you were able to measure the brainwaves of babies in the womb, you'd see that they are conscious of their surroundings, and this develops over time and through parental, peer and societal influences.

But at what point am I thinking/conscious?

And why am *I* having this consciousness? Why did *I* (whatever *I* is) come to be inside this particular human that you all know and love?

I'm a bit busy today so I'll be back later to see how you're doing.

What's the worst you've fecked up on an email?
at 16:01 19 Sep 2019

Today, I sent a mass email where I CC-d everyone instead of BCC-ing them. Around 130 people who, instead of receiving a personal email, could now see everyone else. We're talking very important people in my industry, in terms of getting employment. I wanted to die.

It didn't actually turn out too bad, and the replies I got from people with their own stories of email mess-ups were brilliant, and helped me feel a little better about myself. One in particular told of a colleague who accidentally ‘replied all’ on a client email. It read “Argh. I wish she would just f*ck off!” The client, a massive global brand you’ve all heard of, then did exactly that.

My f*ck up was nothing in comparison.

Anyone else got any email embarrassment stories?
