If it came to it again in a no deal scenario, would you vote to stay in the UK or Leave?

It stems back to a very basic problem (because some of this back and forth would be normal for negotiations):
When negotiation fails, you revert to the status quo. In this case a breakdown in negotiation defaults to the worst outcome. So here we are, a month and a half away from the cliff edge

There was also a vote against the only deal available (while rejecting no deal, and staying in the EU). But no actual suggestions of an alternative.

It's not even about having a party with gods, Eris wouldn't be about the fine details such as their status in the pantheon. Inviting Patrick Swayze could draw her attention even more than inviting Zeus depending on her mood.
In short, she will show up when she wants to show up. Don't call her, she will call you.

SMF is getting a little patchy at stopping them, or there is an exploit circumventing the captcha. Annoying.

There is always more to learn about a database in this tutorial we will delve down into

1) Query structure
2) How to normalise tables
3) How does an index work
4) How an index ACTUALLY works
5) Execution plans, and caching (why repeating the same thing over and over again is not a sign of madness but a mistrust of a world built on shifting sands)
6) How Azethoth is at the heart of any SQL installation, and his role in making it work

That was the dark aspect to the plot of utopia. They are fighting against an illuminati plot that they think will kill half the world. The dramatic twist is the plot is to render most of the world infertile, to avoid a famine, and they cant bring themselves to stop them.
Very pessimistic but well written

Slaughterhouse-Five.



'Nuff said.
Only read that over the summer gone, it's rare that the sci-fi allegory zoo story switches interchangeably between the real world historical prison camp. The happy sci-fi dream zoo where he is there with his (underage) pin up girl really gave weight to the camp and Dresden.

There was a superman story where the Preserver put him in a zoo for last of their kinds against his will. It rails against the themes of captivity and imprisonment as a form of slavery but at the same time ends with Superman taking the creatures of the zoo to protect them as he understands its value and because they would die otherwise.
