Re: What's the most interesting place you have visited?

. Sticking with the German theme, I would suggest the Roman city of Trier. Reportedly, Germany's first city, and "second" city of the Roman empire, Trier is currently listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on account of its twin cathedrals, its extensive Roman remains and, no doubt, its very pretty ...

Re: Jeremy Clarkson

. Hi there Nick. Greetings from snowy Glasgow. Let me try to answer some of your points. You're right about the value of my works pension being related to the number of years I worked in the public sector. The main point of my self-introduction, though, was to declare my interests, so to speak, when...

Re: Humans versus (other) animals.

I guess a frog in the sky has good reason to be wary of owls but to me they're really cool :-) In a purely abstract sense few would argue that humans are more important than animals but there are two practical instances where this principle might not apply, 1. A pet owner might value the life of t...

Re: Just a Joke

. A little bit of medical humour. Old MacTavish has an appointment at the hospital and, because he is a bit deaf, takes his long-suffering wife along in case she is needed. The consultant does some poking and prodding then speaks to MacTavish - Consultant : Umm, we'll have to do some more tests. We'...

Re: Grammer and phrases wot is irritating

.

Nothing to do with grammar, just journalistic laziness or distortion, it really annoys me -

the use of the term, "The Lockerbie Bomber".

As far as I know, nobody bombed Lockerbie.

Don't try to explain it to me - just share in my irritation.

Re: just suppose you were wrong after all...

I don't think there's any actual disagreement with this part - just a need for some fuller explanation of terms. Here's my proof for the non-existence of "God". I worked it out about fifteen years ago. The christian God exists to "give us our daily bread" and to "deliver us from evil" - a Provider-P...
