When eating, much of what we conceive to be "taste" is actually derived from our sense of smell.

 

According to Wikipedia, woodlouse urine gives off a particularly offensive odour.

 

I won't be drinking any of this:

Perhaps they get scared at the idea of being cooked.  Perhaps, it would be possible to genetically modify a woodlouse to be braver.  And larger.

Shellfish are already perfect. Why mess with that?

I would report this, but I assume Ckn has already barred Farmduck.  And good riddence!

1- Some millionaires want to spend THEIR money on rugby league.
Do we
A, send them away to spend it some where else?
B, tell them they should spend THEIR money how WE think?
C, work with them and gain some publicity?

One weekend a year some young men are offered a free long weekend in a major city in a country that they probably haven't visited before. The cost is probably a major factor in them not doing so. The downside is that they will have to take a couple of days holiday from their annual allowance and won't be able to go on their annual trip with their mates to Blackpool, Bruge or Prague.

Mmmm let me think, would I rather go to Todmorden or Toronto for the weekend?.... That's a hard one

 

 

This has been done to death many times before. If these Canadians want to spend THEIR money on a team in Championship 1 who are we to tell them how they can spend THEIR money. I suggest you sell your PC/tablet and buy a washing machine with the money you get for it.

 

I agree, with reservation.  The same argument was used against me by people who did not feel my reservations about Crusaders joining Super League was a good idea.  It does seem the risk is all on the Canadians, so the RFL would be daft to say no.


In Topic: The beginning of the end for printed newspapers

National newspapers have not been a good financial investment for sometime.  I concluded the reason they are worth something to people is that they give the owners a mouth piece.

I read that article last month as well.  Made me chuckle that he'd have had more money if he'd done nothing at all with his life :P

I am put in the odd position, along with Martyn Sadler, of sticking up for Trump.  While he considerable underestimates the effect that been born with a fortune had on his fortune, he still does better than most in similar positions.  He is the richest of his siblings for example.  Most fabulously wealthy people are far worse off than if they had deposited what they had been born with.
