I wasn't so keen as it didn't involve phrases such as 'monkey faced tart' which came from a rather well used criminal case, the name of which I cannot recall... I also love the theoretical argument regarding mens rea and actus reus having to overlap, particularly in theft cases, so if you can prove that you intended to pay for something when you took it but once you took it and accidentally didn't pay you could decide to just keep it and not be convicted... At least I think that was right, there may have been further case law that overruled... My time at uni was obviously well spent

Thanks, ravi. To savour it fully, bear in mind that Pete and I read the same subject at the same university.




Allegedly.

Even had the same tutor for one subject despite the fact we are 25 years apart in age. It is 25 years, isn't it, NR?

We talking physical, mental or light years, Pete?

I'll take physical or mental. My basic mind can't quantify light years...

Then "no" to physical; "very likely" to mental; and "at least" to light years.


But you're only about 100% out on physical. Let me see now ... isn't it finance you work in?

I'd use 'finance' and 'work' loosely...

I've been taking a look around amazon today, and decided to search for million dead just to see if anything interesting came up.
Although associated with the new British rock scene, the half-Welsh half-Australian Million Dead
Oh really amazon?

Equally, I rather love this gem of a phrase
a keen, mischievous intelligence
Very poetic. Not entirely sure it makes sense, even to describe Mr Turner.

So, anyone purchased their copies of Killing in the Name? For all the futility and politics attached to the arguments going on (big labels still profiting, etc), I couldn't give a fuck. Killing in the Name being number 1 at Christmas instead of what has to be the worst X Factor song yet would be ace. It's actually ahead according to reports after 2 days.

I have.
Journey are in the top ten as well so I downloaded that for good measure, and partly because it reminds me of my favourite pub.

Just anything except another shit X Factor song.
