I guess you forgot you told everyone that there were only 24 time zones.

Not unlike when you try to talk around the fact the United KING_dom is a monarchy.

You have a psychosis, Skanque.

I am an atheist living in a real religious town. Anytime you get asked religion you are and you say atheist people all stare and sneer and can hear them call you names. How warm religious people are...Huh??

Question? Is it worth having a job in the UK?"

I know you get to decide what words are being used in the English language based on what argument you are losing on any one day.

PS: Chubby, it 's "losing", not "loosing".

I expect you to tell us that is how they spell it in your part of England though...

Recently I was looking to decide between hiring people in the UK or outsourcing to another country. So I curious how much people get paid on benefits. So I put my details through the benefits check to see if I was unemployed how much I would be entitled to. Here is a screen shot of my results:"

The sun does not rise first anywhere on a spinning planet that revolves around a sun.

It will rise FIRST in Japan before it rises in England NOW.

The United King_dom is a monarchy.

No matter how hard you stomp your feet.

PS: the UK has no constitution. Next time you are in the states, swing by the capital and see a copy, it's on display.

And swing by the capitol and see a democracy in action. Over here, we elected our Congress, all of them.

Unlike the United King_d0om, where the majority of the Parliament are appointed.

They ask, maybe- in some hospitals- because you may die and they want to know in case they have to call a priest.

And you say "none" and they fill in that blank and ask you the next question.

No one cares.
