    PS - No problem; the whole (serious) point was that generalisations about Monopoly (game) real world squares don't really map from location to location. I was aware that all 4 London stations had been owned by the Late and Never...

    Hammersmith Bridge is on the A306. That's a national road therefore the bill goes to Highways England....

    Er, this still misses a step, the "gold standard". Under this "1 unit" of paper $currency drawn on AnyBankLtd is backed by a certain mass of actual specie in AnyBankLtd's vaults. Exactly when nations left the true gold standard is...

    #1705 - This may be the case in North America, but it's entirely possible for a UK tanker to deliver tank_2 to vendor_1, tank_1 and tank_5 to vendor_2, and tank_3 and tank_4 to vendor_3. Having had a mate who managed...

    #82 - Ok, I'd have to do some research, but I could find the names of the real railway companies who owned those 4 terminii. #92 - Not when first built for sure, as you already know. The Late and...

    #1699 - This again! You may possibly describe the situation in the Yousay, but there would be several factual errors in the UK. Aside from measurements tracking mpg, $supermarket_fuel is also at least sometimes price matched by brand name over...

    My nearest Costco branch is about 14 miles away (just checked)....
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    #1672 - Costco is $0.10 a gallon cheaper Yes, but is it really? A good friend has done similar figures over here for $brand_name vs "a major supermarket". The supermarket was £0.10 a gallon cheaper, but he burned 10% less...

    King's Cross, Marylebone, Fenchurch Street and Liverpool Street are the names of 4 real London railway terminii! Although not also the names of companies which owned said stations....

    I've seen that claimed as a feature, because the effort required to "mine" (or quarry, or compute) bitcoin rises roughly as an exponent of the number of bitcoin already mined....

    I think you misunderstand. The way the post I replied to was written, the possession of any form of one-way algorithm, including hashing tables, one-way pads, bytecoin mining software etc would be illegal as I read the OP....
  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    Will any computing process that relates to one-way hashing be considered illegal? Won't that make most forms of codes and cyphers, including one-time pads, illegal?...

    That's roughly how I normally buy fuel; run the tank well down, then fill it to the "click" where the pump safety switches the flow off. If I'm not buying at least 3/4 of a tank there is something atypical...

    #1610 - AIUI (UK law, including Scotland) you were serving them legal papers; That is the one circumstance in which you can not be trespassing, and what they did was legally intimidation of an officer of the court. #1612 -...

    #1557 - I'm not sure that Bozo has the power (at least short of an Act of Parliament) to change the voting/ count tallying methods for the Scots, Welsh (or Norn Irn?) parliaments. I think they may be baked into...

    #1458 (and #1528) - I can't answer that directly either, but I've known confessed theists and humanists who demonstrate their beliefs by actions rather than words; for example by actions for voluntary organisations, by charitable donations, and by not passing...

    Well said sir....

    #1470 - No-one is saying that scythed chariots did not exist; what we are saying is that they were not primarily used for chariot charges on infantry formations. #1473 - No, Da'esh are not Muslims, because they do not follow...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    #1437 - Er, something like 99% of all Muslims would deny that Da'esh and other terrorist groups actually are Muslims. #1438 (2) - I heard the suggestion earlier today that Larry should replace Bozo as PM, and get the cat...

    #1415 - So based on this, you are defining warm (of beer) as "canned/bottled beer, stored in a centrally heated room at "shirt sleeve temperature". Well, without meaning to put words into their mouths I have drunk in the same...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    #1399 - Again with the assumption about the "chariot charge". Personally, I think that if I was going to part armour a horse chariot, I'd use barding on the horses, not plates on the chariot superstructure. #1400 - I got...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    Other terms I use to describe temperatures between the freezing point of pure water and blood heat, coldest to hottest are ice cold, cold, cool, room temperature, lukewarm....
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    #1388 - And you know I agree with you (at least as long as we don't go down to individual brews). #1389 - Yes, but I attached a dictionary definition of "warm" rather than using the Lewis Caroll quote "when...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    #1356 - Not as such, but that doesn't mean that I don't think that iron tyres, bearings and nails would offer benefits over an all wooden chariot. #1361 - Which part of the phrase "no later than" don't you understand?...

    #1339 - and also a pile of feotid dingo's kidneys to even sugggest that the Quran is a Bronze Age document. The author lived from 570 to 632 CE and archaeological convention places the beginning of the Iron Age no...

    I don't particularly want to get into a debate about "how strictly one follows the Holy Quran". Let's just say that some Islamic scholars would say I was correct, and others that what your friend did was perfectly acceptable, and...

    Why do you persist in trying to put words into my mouth? Where? You're the one who said "warm beer", which is above body heat but not actually hot....
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    #1277 - I think that to find kosher or halal meat (dairy and veg are normally both) you have to find a Jewish or Islamic butcher as applicable. I am not aware of kosher or halal ready meals although vegetable...

    Inflatables take a fair bit of on-orbit fitting out and can't easily be deflated for return to Earth Yes they can; you just de-orbit them and they'll burst and burn up during re-entry....
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    From Cambridge dictionaries (other dictionary publishers are available) "Warm: having a fairly high temperature, but not hot". Why are you persisting in repeating the fantasy that the British drink beer that is above body heat?...
