Is the blood on the consumer? Or on the electronics? Whose blood is it? As long as it's not mine, I'm OK with it.

Erm, it was mine and ended up on the consumer and the electronics. It's unlikely to happen to you unless you have a tendency to get nosebleeds, hayfever and get elevated blood pressure from trying to get 'plug-and-play' stuff to do what they say on the box.

You (like me) are British. What you think is real chocolate (Cadbury's, Galaxy, Nestle) is actually imitation chocolate. Stuff like Green & Black's and Lindt is real chocolate.

Oh, that old argument. The EU may be a good idea in some areas but they seem incapable of doing anything sensible when it comes to food. Was it them who wanted to call yoghurt 'fermented milk products' unless it came from a certain bit of Greece? I know they wanted to make it illegal to call the low-quality chocolate 'chocolate' and wanted it renamed to something stupid. Morons.

Life is too short not to appreciate those around you. You never know when it will be the last time you'll see them.
"Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens."
("Against stupidity, the gods themselves contend in vain.")

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Before criticising the EU food labelling restrictions too much, try living somewhere that they have no influence. Believe me, life is too short to stand in front of a supermarked refrigerator cabinet full of 'cream', reading the labels on thirty different brands to find the ONE that has nothing but cream in it! :furious:

Life is too short for not owning your own cow and making your own dairy products.

Life is too short to amass the money required for the 400 acres you need in Australia to get enough grass for one cow, and is MUCH too short to figure out how to milk kangaroos.

I hope life isn't too short for me to return to Ireland where grass grows profusely everywhere so that there is enough in a field for a hundred cows and a mowing the lawn is a weekly task not a yearly one.

I've got 2.5 acres, I could buy a cow and UPS WorldExpress the milk to you for about $100 (US) a gallon!

Life is too short to NOT watch Monty Python's The Meaning of Life


***Spoiler!!! If you haven't seen it don't read the following!!!!***



“Announcer: And here it is, The Meaning of Life.

(opens the official envelope)

Well, it's nothing very special. Uh, try and be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book every now and then, get some walking in, and try and live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations. And, finally, here are some completely gratuitous pictures of penises to annoy the censors and to hopefully spark some sort of controversy, which, it seems, is the only way, these days, to get the jaded, video-sated public off their f*cking arses and back in the sodding cinema. Family entertainment, bollocks! What they want is filth! People doing things to each other with chainsaws during Tupperware parties. Babysitters being stabbed with knitting needles by gay presidential candidates. Vigilante groups strangling chickens, armed bands of theatre critics exterminating mutant goats… Where's the fun in pictures? Oh, well, there we are. Here's the theme music. Goodnight.”

Incorrect Roy. "42" is the answer to "The Great Question of Life, the Universe and Everthing", not the meaning itself.

I think the question is: "WTF??"
