I donated blood a couple of days ago and didn't even consider wearing a mask.
I realised about half way through the donation that everyone else was wearing one as the nurse started talking to me about my septum piercing.
The snacks table had reopened too and a mask definitly wasn't required there.
Shrinkflation really shouldn't be a thing with bread. It was the original example and that's why bread loaf weight is so heavily regulated.
My example from today is Pedigree Dentastix which have gone from packs of 28 to 21.
I'm never been sure about this rule - I think there is some conflation between the station group (e.g London Terminals or Dorking stations that a ticket can be bought for) and the routing point group such as Dorking Group or London.
It makes sense to me that you can't double back within a...
Certainly around 10 years ago when I lived around there Gomshall was part of the Dorking Routing Point Group (rather than associated to the group as it is now) so a double back for interchange purposes was allowed.
I wonder if the data still shows it that way and the PDFs don't.
I liked the idea of it - but everyone (except Neil Oliver) is just shouting at and over each other and it's impossible to follow without a lot of concentration.
I'll maybe try a few other shows over the next week.
Just tuned in to the new GB News on Freeview. The audio and video quality is on par with the shopping channels and almost unintelligible.
I had a look to see if I could cast to my TV but it seems not.
What does everyone else think of GB News?
Not going to be worth it with but in theory I guess you could get a season ticket and then get a refund for unused days.
Would that make the max cost for a day ticket between two stations the anytime return + £10 or am I missing something?
Watching that certainly made me think electrical rather than fire but I've a few questions not specific to this I'm hoping someone can help me understand.
Does this sort of thing actually cause any damage - or is it just cut power briefly and swap out a fairly cheap insulator and up and running...
I used Linux for a while and got used to debian/Ubuntu. But I found the unity release of Ubuntu that bad and in need of a new laptop went for a mac book pro. Most of the benfit I get from Linux comes from the terminal which I still got but with lots of extras.
The mac book died a little while...
On a Northern train from Leeds to Skipton yesterday evening "rush" there were two revenue guys checking all tickets. They got through the train before Kirkstall.
The guard was checking all tickets and happily selling tickets on my way in that morning. I still find it odd the keenness to sell...
The chain I work for has seen quite a few stores have entire departments or leadership teams knocked out by test and trace, but worst of all colleagues do die.
Face masks don't protect the wearer but do massively reduce spread.
If anyone can wear a mask when in close proximity to others then...
The sorts have beer I've been buying recently are probably small batches - I've been spending a little more in the shops buying local or niche while the pubs are shut.
It makes sense that printing and applying labels is cheaper than some specialised can printer.
I had it in my head that the...
I'm now drinking more beer at home rather than at the pub for obvious reasons.
But recently more and more canned beer I buy has a plastic sticker on the outside of the can rather than printed onto it.
I hate the texture of many of them and even the smooth ones have a seam I don't like.
