On the plus side, if London is completely gutted, the air might become breathable again

Yeah, when I had to cross it I would come home and have to sit in the shower with lots of steam till my asthema subsided.

I had kind of expected deutchbank, not so much hsbc, but I was really surprised with Llyods would have thought of them as British as they come.

Brexit won't have a negative effect on the UK economy. Businesses leaving is empty fear posturing from the remain camp.
Oh what's this...

I was expecting some of the smaller banks to do this, but Lloyds going is a huge problem, that will trigger some of the associated banks to move as well.

The worst is, because of the size of lloyds, and because of peoples automatic reaction to this, which will be to close accounts and move to Banks remaining British, the impact on the sterling and the financial stability of the uk is going to be risky. I would find it hilarious if Teresa May has to give a statement asking people not to close their accounts with this european bank as it could be damaging to the UK.

Do impossible thoughts exist or are they only imagined to exist such that we imagine the existence of an impossible thought and think we are thinking about it when we are in point of fact not thinking about it at all?

Define "exist".

Exist - Having the boundary condition of non-existence
Try again, without having to use the term to describe itself.

It also occurs to me that he wouldn't make such a claim unless he knew there was little risk of him going to jail, that perhaps a pardon has already been negotiated with, with the incoming president.

Is it enjoyable? Seems like weird sense of humour, my favourite film of last year was the Greasy Strangler, would I like this?

I was wrong, the articles I read were either paraphrased, or I remembered it wrong. Well that's interesting, I don't think Assange will have the conviction to his words, though I wonder how he will welsh out of it.

"If Obama grants Manning clemency Assange will agree to US extradition despite clear unconstitutionality of DoJ case", the US hasn't made an extradition request as the pretence of his charges was always sexual abuse, if they bring it now it justifies why he is hiding in the Ecuadorian embassy, either way he is likely to stay where he is.

I don't like the man, though I don't really want to see him in the US.

I'm glad that Manning is being released. Assange wont do anything, he said he would if Manning was pardoned, but the sentence was only commuted, the distinction is that Chelsea is still considered guilty, where as a pardon would have vindicated her.

Might have been the intention considering the subject material.

I found it very hard to enjoy the lobster, it was filmed about 20 minutes from my home, most of it taking place in the Parknasilla hotel, and pretty much all the extra's are from the village (my aunt is playing in the band in the ballroom scene), the effect being it killed the immersion for me.

Funny bit of trivia from the actors though that my aunt got: They were all instructed to deliver the lines in the most emotionless way possible (maybe with a hint of anxiety), which they said is really hard for an actor because they are doing their best to get into the characters mind and bring them to life, they said it was much harder then acting for other films.

Ehm, It's up to you. If you want it can be split but not easily because the same parts explaining the joke are tied up in the uh... In the other thing.

I never really understood it, but then I don't know much about Bernie sanders supporters, and a little about the other two.

When does Obama get to do his pardons if that's still a thing.

A power point presentation is a good way to show people your cultural sensitivity, see the father Ted episode for reference



This sounds like you've put your foot in it with some comment, if so just do the right thing and apologise and move on with your life. It happened to me a few months back at a party when I asked one of the people I was chatting to what part of Asia they were from... That turned out to be Brazil, so as I said you can apologise or move on and forget about it, or you can do what I did: Never show my face in public again, being sure to flagellate once a night while shouting "stupid, stupid, stupid".

I want to get that overlaid on the red hand cloak that Manos wears.
