    You need to take a long hard look at yourselves!

    Dunno... I think I understood the coincidence to be too stark to go unmentioned given the date of manufacture? So yeah - possible souvenir / joke things? Or am I reading way too much into it?

    Can't tell if serious or not acknowledging the laws and possible deliberate use of the name to reference the laws?

    I figure Merchant Marines are as capable of troll Stanning as anyone? Even Troll stanning symbolic characters?

    Mr Bolsonaro has repeatedly played down the risks posed by the virus, calling it "a little flu" and saying that he would not be seriously affected by it

    I try not to wish ill on anyone but I genuinely hope this hits this guy hard. If it doesn't literally tens of thousands more will die as a further result of his lunatic evaluation of things.

    I think you can be patient for a tad longer. When we moved in here I spied a mouse. I plugged the entrance holes to the flat (which I was aware of) and laid humane traps with peanut butter. Nothing for days. I renewed the peanut butter and put it back. One morning the trap had caught not one but two mice. That was it - no more since.

    You know you only have one - so that's a bonus.

    You'd hope it will get hungry and if you are not providing other sources of food (where's the cat fud at?) then the mouse will eventually find your bait.

    That is dead odd. Even if it's no possibility that the spoons could have belonged to actual Jim Crow - not nodding to the legacy of the name in an aside seems strange.

    This will be a first - it's going to kick off on here because of the Antiques Road Show!

    I've been trying to get an Antiques Roadshow ruck started since slating Fiona Bruce on the I Hate thread... it went nowhere.

    Funnily enough I had a conversation with a very interesting student of mine this morning during which we tackled the challenge of imposter syndrome. My proposal was that it could be potentially welcomed / utilised as evidence of criticality, responsibility and awareness. It can be a creative burden (I lecture at an art school) but is often evidence of someone wanting to achieve healthy perspective.... the opposite of academic, entitled arrogance illustrated by Starkey.

    My personal conclusion... I’d rather spend time talking with someone who doesn’t automatically assume a position of unassailable authority. It gives the conversation ears.
