|Anyone got any stupid panic buying stories then?|

My sister told me last night a friend of hers called her in tears.
Went to a bunch of shops, couldn't find baby milk. Finally saw one but just as she got there an old couple picked it up.
She asked whether that was for a child, and they said it wasn't, but they wanted to make sure they had some milk for their tea.
They refused to let her have it.

I really do hope with their strong majority they prove me wrong and actually improve the country after a decade of austerity.
Oh and sort out Brexit properly. No excuses this time.

Interesting stuff, especially the parts that relate to our own electoral practices.
What do we think the likelihood is in getting laws changed around here to deal with the modern age? Apparently there was going to be something coming at the end of the year but who knows anymore with an almost entirely new cabinet.
And of course the targeted adverts have already started:
The Dominic Cummings wearing an OpenAI t-shirt is almost taking the piss at this point.

Posted the longer video for context.
His explanation is that he thought she might be armed.
Can't say that he looks very scared, looks more angry than anything and then takes it out on her. Not a good look.
|Some advice on a mysterious beeping noise in my house.|
at 19:28 11 Jan 2019
So a few nights ago it sounded like the fire alarm was beeping. Even though the fire alarms are mains powered I replaced the batteries in both and the noise seemed to stop beeping after I tested the alarms.
Last night the beeping returned. Took the alarms off again thinking maybe one of them is faulty and the beeping continued. Sounds like it's coming from the hall but there is nothing else electric there other than a light. At around 3am it just stopped beeping.
Now it's started again so did the same thing, took the alarms and and stuck them in a completely different room to the sound. Turned the mains off and... Still bloody beeping. Checked the loft, moved the insulation and there's nothing there.
Any idea what the fook it could be before I get an emergency callout? I can't have another night's sleep with it going.

And look who it is:
"Scientists and many delegates in Poland were shocked as the US, Saudi Arabia, Russia and Kuwait objected to this meeting "welcoming" the report."
Wonderful. Their selfishness and greed will continue and there will be a point of no return. If we could trade countries taking this seriously with the UK doing the hardest of the Brexits I would take it in a heartbeat...

Ban the sale of fireworks to the public. Displays for licenced venues only.
A few years back I'd have been dead against this, mainly cos I've either lived in the middle of nowhere and they've never bothered me or because I've been in a city centre where again nobody is setting them off.
Moved to the suburbs and I'm kind of amazed how bad it can be. The other day an old lady and her dog had fireworks shot at them not at all far from me. Yesterday there was a massive fire near the Notts Country ground that looks like it was set off by fireworks. I've seen some horrible videos and pictures on how it effects pets and my own dog is absolutely terrified for a whole week every evening.
Still on the fence as to whether they need to be completely banned to the public as it seems overkill but wouldn't mind seeing more restrictions on when and where they can be set off legally
