Bow-ties! Because bow-ties are cool, always have been and always will be. I have it on the highest authority.

Just the "3" part. Pi is three, and a bit. BSJ had the right idea about that you know.

I've worked in customer facing roles for over a decade, I have so many "weird" questions it is unreal. Everything from inappropriate questions over my sex life, to just plain bizarre non-sequitors (where can parrots get a drink?).

I still treasure the American tourist who, after scarfing down a black pudding supper, turned to me and asked if it was vegetarian friendly and stated she was a strict vegetarian. Possibly second only to another American tourist who asked in all seriousness "what time does the One O'Clock Gun Get Fired?". Oh the temptation to say Half-Twelve to him....

Mind you, there was the English woman who spent an hour ranting at me, demanding to know why we'd cut her electricity off. A good question, and one I advised her to take up with her actual electricity supplier and not the phone company.

Obviously asked by someone who has never seen or read Planet Of The Apes.

I'd choose some living people; George Osborne, Nick Clegg, David Cameron, and Theresa May. Well, they'd be living at the start of the meal...

I'd be serving the Salmon Mousse.


No honestly, even if we still had the death penalty, if I ever got the chance to take one of them out or even lay hands on them, I'd take it. And I could go to my grave a happy person.

The only reason I wouldn't include Eric Pickles is I'm not sure I could get enough poison (or Salmon Mousse) to take him out. Maybe a Japanese Whaler could lend me their explosive harpoon.

No. It might be part of an intentional campaign to deceive, but it isn't a lie. You only lie when you actively contradict a truthful accusation, or state a non-truth as a truth.

So called "lies of omission" do not have that part of telling a non-truth. A "lie of omission" is merely a statement that is incomplete on details, and not correcting someone else's assumptions. You are under no obligation to correct someone else's false assumption. If the other person truly cared about the issue they would take the time to ask proper clarification questions.

A "lie of omission" accusation is the shifting of blame for failure to do the legwork on an issue from the person who failed to sufficiently clarify or investigate, to the person who gave a statement that may have been incomplete. It is a failure to clarify, not a lie of omission and the blame lies with the receiver.

You can tell I used to work sales.

And someone gave them enough cash to fill up five different banks, so they never needed to fear financial security again. Because marriages come and go, but not having to worry about paying the rent or if you've got enough to turn the heating on is a gift that lets you pursue all sorts of happiness.

The moral, money might not buy happiness, but it can prevent a great deal of misery.

Anyone who isn't an actual American, they'd have proper perspective away from the usual fishbowl effect.

Or failing that, Jon Stewart. I'm not sure whether I mean the comedian or the Green Lantern though.

Here is mine in a banana costume.

It's a convincing costume, isn't it.

Also, I need to do some hoovering.

Apathy and tea. As a weapon they've worked surprisingly well for the UK populace during all sorts of crisis. Just wait for it to blow over, maybe write a stiff letter of complaint to my Member of Parliament.

Which definition of "country" are you using? There are lots of countries that the other countries don't recognise, and lot of countries that are actually several countries rolled into one. Is Palestine a country or Sealand, what about the UK, is it one country, or two countries, three, four, more? Some countries claim part or all of another country to be part of their own country. That is a very complicated question, and the number will vary wildly depending on the type of count used.

Me? I say there is only one, and it is called Earth. We're all citizens of it. Want a look at it? It's here:

Well, a janitor at Edinburgh Zoo has told me he can get me a pet panda, no questions asked. Hopefully it won't just be a polar bear with black spots painted on it, again.

I'm told, though, that the scientists at CERN may have got theirs, so if anyone was buying a physicist a Higgs Boson then you are too late.

Pluto, just as a spit in the eye to the IAU, the splitters!

Or possibly Bob. For the Titan A.E. reference and of course for the Blackadder-Sailor Moon crossover fun of Sailor "Bob".

As long as it ends the DDoS attacks I don't care. Vote in a basset hound if it can make LJ accessible again.
