Thanks for the music, Mr. Preview. RIP great man.

Knew someone would post the Morecambe and Wise. Thank you. By far and away the funniest thing I have ever seen and shall ever see. Always had a soft spot for Grieg's Piano Concerto because of it.

I'm playing all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order.......!!

43,800 EXTRA hours? 5 MORE years? That right there is a waking NIGHTMARE.

Nicely worked out though!

Stop and search saved lives.

Sadiq Khan has blood on his hands.

Stopped before Sadiq Khan became mayor.

There is a traditional anglo-saxon aversion to using a knife as a weapon.

You realize where the name Saxon comes from, don't you? It derives from the "Seax" knife used by them...

Posted in: Why can't Japanese teachers of English ... speak English? See in context

Some years ago I started singing English songs with my 5th & 6th graders, just to introduce some other culture into the classroom. Obviously they can't read things like Hey Jude, Daydream Believer, Thriller, but with katakana pronunciation, they can. Kids went on to JHS, and weren't allowed to sing. The JTE refused to even consider it, even though the kids were extremely eager.

I'm not sure what my point was, but why would the JTE not do something that is obviously a benefit to the students' learning?

Posted in: Germany rejects Trump's claim it owes NATO vast sums See in context

I think the German and the British government were equally as rude to Trump, so yes, if they can do it, he can as well or is there some rule where it states the POTUS has to take insults?

I wasn't necessarily talking about her, I was talking more others and the press.........

You quite clearly stated "German and British Government," so by association, you meant the PM or Chancellor of those countries, whether you like it or not. I couldn't care less what the likes of the Daily Mail or Guardian say, but there is nowhere on record (or in quotes) what May or Merkel have said in a derogatory manner about Trump. Call yourself an independent journalist? Utterly laughable.

Posted in: What's your stance on the death penalty? See in context

100% proof and it's OK? Tell that to Derek Bentley and Timothy Evans (who died for murders they didn't commit), Stefan Kiszko, the Bridgewater Four, Birmingham Six, Gulidford Four etc etc etc (who would've died had there been capital punishment). All were convicted on "100% proof", and in some cases so-called police making up evidence, against them. These are just some of the cases from the UK.....what about the US?? Europe? "It's OK, but make sure it's 100%"..........yeah, right......

Cold Caller: Hello. Am I speaking to the telephone account holder? me: I'm sorry, but we don't have a phone here. Cold Caller: Oh......... me: Goodbye!
