Anyone given this a go? I must admit to thoroughly enjoying the film (1998 with Joey from Friends) despite it being quite obviously crap.

Who recommended Delhi Grill (Angel) a while back?

Heading there tonight, only the second time, and I can't remember for the life of me who recommended it (it may not even have been on here, to be honest - I have a terrible memory).

Driving lessons
at 15:48 12 Apr 2018

Obviously I'm a tip top driver with a clean as a whistle record. However, my Mrs wants to learn and I can't for the life of me recall how many hours of lessons I had before I took my test.

Do any of you good folk remember how many hours you had?

Bold prediction time for next season
at 10:07 11 Apr 2018

1. We will finish below 12th but I will go to more games and have far more fun than this season.
2. We will get to the 5th round of the FA Cup.

Immersion heater
at 13:47 6 Apr 2018

Howdy.

New flat has an immersion heater with two elements (one nearer the top of the tank, one nearer the bottom). Can someone ITK either confirm or ridicule my two assumptions?:

1. Both elements stop heating the tank if it hits a certain temperaturem, therefore saving electricity (e.g. it's not constantly heating and heating - it only does so when it goes below that target temp?)
2. I probably only need to use the one nearer the top for everyday use, not both, as I will only need the hot water at the top of the tank unless I'm using loads?

Ta very much

Straw poll - who still smokes?
at 12:14 26 Mar 2018

How frequently? Which brand? Roll-ups or straights? Just when you're drunk? At work?

I had a couple in February on 'Superbowl night' but before then I can't recall the last one I had.

I read a stat that in 1974 as much as 45% of the UK population smoked. That is mental.

Let's leave cannabis out of it for now, I'm talking tobacco.

Anyone with experience of this? There's a few good offers with Virgin but I am reticent to accept that it will be as reliable without a phone line. How does it work?

This is lip-service. Absolute joke. It should restrict the frequency of ads and the links between footy and gambling which are so ingrained.

The Signal and The Noise, by Nate Silver
at 12:53 6 Mar 2018

Just started reading this and very much enjoying it. The way in which Silver uses relatively simple analogous prose to explain complex risks and uncertainties (as well as the difference between the two) is very accessible. Also some useful diagrams to depict, visually, just how wrong some predictions are.

Side note: I had no idea how disgraceful the hand of the ratings agencies was in the Sub Prime Mortgage scandal. Barstewards.

Half Marathon on Sunday: Fundraising for the MS Society
at 09:42 26 Feb 2018

https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/joshrunsthebighalfms

https://www.mssociety.org.uk/

Ladies and Gents,

On Sunday I am running the London 'Big Half' (half marathon, obviously) in memory of my girlfriend's late mother, who died from complications relating to MS just 16 months ago.

I've been training with my girlfriend the past few months but as a last minute thing, decided that as an extra effort to support her I'd take part in the event itself and run with her on the day, as well as fundraise for the MS Society.

I know plenty of you were extremely generous during my Athens Marathon fundraising for MIND, but if there is a spare fiver or so going, I'd be extremely grateful if you would donate to this equally deserving cause.

Cheers,
Josh
