Dies' is right about that one, behind all the science and pragmatism there is no discernible soul :lol:

No, I'm more a Television X freeview kind of man :lol:  In other news, found this headline mildly amusing:

:lol:

Always good for a quote the Gallaghers. I remember one where they asked Noel what he thought of the band Keane and he replied along the lines of "Well as a general rule the biggest wanker in any band are the singer, the drummer and the keyboard player".

Poisoned her so my company would lose money and capacity from all her sick leaves and then resulting in anguish to her (and to me) when I have to fire her?

Haha.

On a sidenote, my career is based on the application of evolution. My PhD focused on directed evolution of a particular protein, e.g. I created random mutations in a pool of that protein and then applied selection pressures to obtain protein variants with improved features. Then, in my current job (and I am not a scientist anymore), I have initiated and observed another evolutionary project where we generate new bacterial factories for production of therapeutic proteins by generating random mutations in cultures of bacteria and then screening for individual cells that have improved manufacturing capacities. Basically, we harness the powers of evolution to create new life forms that have been evolved to be super-effective factories for production of high-value proteins.

The kid's plane was late leaving Vegas and just as it was about to land at home, diverted due to icing. :facepalm:  At least they allowed her to deplane in KC.  Not sure when I'm getting my kid back.  I was watching the little flight map when all the sudden the plane turned around, lol.  That was weird.

I was glad they got diverted.  More worried about them getting out on the roads from the airport rather than the landing.  It was a fucking mess here at 6 in the morning.  I'm not a stalker, lol.  It's a mom's job.  And thanks to GNR I've learn some plane tracking abilities.

Jean Shrimpton was born in High Wycombe. 

She was so fit.  Mick was banging her sister, wasn't he, for a while there back in the 60s.  Jean was fuckin' gorgeous though:

I work in waste management mainly as a traffic controller but I do a load of odd bits n bobs here n there as I am a jack of all trades.

That's due to working here so long that I started as just a call center boy and worked my way up ...Started from the bottom

Pity your not doing it in New York in the 1980s the Mafia would have been into you for kickbacks galore with that job. Don't think High Wycome has a Cosa Nostra though. Costa coffee maybe 😁

No, its a sort of a cold concrete dump with fuck all going for it, sort of home counties suburban working to lower middle class, boring, dud, nothing-ever-happens town.  More scum of the earth than snooty royalists.
