      I’ve never been stung by a bee but have by a wasp a fair few times. I’ve always found they hurt, something quick and sharp, then they ache a bit after.

      Last time I was stung it was at a picnic in St James Park. I felt something near my arm pit, moved my arm to look and the damn wasp stung me. Then when I tried to swat it away the jerk had the audacity to sting me again!

      I’ve seen a lot SMEs to corporates on campus to meet/recruit students for junior roles. Contact your local university to see if they have any careers events or if they want a guest speaker from industry.

      Some of the SMEs I know are doing Hackathons.

      @frosty this survey indicated that of the 2.9 million vapers in the UK, 1.5 million were ex-smokers. Which leaves 1.4 million who started vaping despite being non-smokers.

      So yes, 1.5 million is more than half of 2.9 million, but only just. Obvious question is why did 1.4 million people spontaneously take up vaping?

      @bob Many millenials have not benefitted from the crash, as mortgages are only any use if you can save up for a deposit. If you can’t, you just get screwed from not earning interest on any savings you can save, rising rent prices and wages dropping in real terms!

      I have been incredibly lucky in that I have always been able to find rental properties from friends, acquaintences and family. I have recently inhereted a large sum of money which will allow us to think about buying, but I am by no means in the majority in any of this!

      I find the smell unpleasant and in a very vapy environment find it makes my throat sore, in the same way as in a smokey environment or if someone had been spraying aerosols around.

      Doesn’t necessarily mean it’s damaging my health long term, but it certainly does have a short term negative effect.

      Didn’t see the documentary, but suspect I would have struggled to watch.

      Trophy hunters should have their eyes gouged out slowly with rusty screwdrivers.

      As a species we haven’t changed, so should the need arise I’m sure the snowflakes could toughen up if required.

      Bloody hell, that’s a lot of replies. I should have mentioned in the first post I have zero intention of going to a casino to try this and I don’t trust the online stuff, I’m sure it’s regulated but no thanks.

      To those saying it won’t work, it certainly worked for a couple of hours on the free app today, placing a £10 bet and doubling each loss, with 6 losses in a row being the max I saw that only needs a float of £1270 to cover it, 7 losses would need £2540 and 8 would be £5080. I don’t know the odds but the chances of a solid run of black or 0 (assuming I stick with red) must be tiny.

      But the main log jam would be the table limit, I never thought about that but I am pretty sure that a table that would take a £10 bet wouldn’t take a £1270 bet if only to prevent people doing this. At the end of the day the house always wins otherwise there would be no house.

      All academic anyway because I don’t gamble. I have an addictive personality and would be the person emptying my wallet chasing that one big win so I avoid it totally. (quit drinking 28 years ago for the same reason, always had to be the last man standing)

      Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel Never Let Me Go (or – better – the film adaptation of that novel) addresses this really will. It doesn’t deal with specific dates of death but it DOES deal with people knowing that they are not long for this world, touching on issues of destination/pre-destination, free will, motivation to get on with things etc. Highly recommended.

      I get migraines when I read liberal posts on the internet 😀

      You need to wear proper supportive insoles. I had plantar fascitiis and wearing insoles in my everyday shoes really helped. The best insoles for plantar fasciitis in my opinion are Footrevivers they will give your feet just the right amount of support and wont make your shoes feel bulky or tight. I have tried other brands such as scholl and superfeet and they did not even compare.

      99.99% i think you’ll find.

      The funny thing is that few seem to question, is whether it kills all species to the same 99.99% level… which they don’t. Some bacteria are completely annihilated, others survive relatively unscathed. Whether the one that is unscathed is pathogenic or not is anybody’s guess. Even if the pathogens are always being annihilated, it’s just a few horizontal gene transfers away from passing on that resistance to the pathogenic strain – and then you’re totally unprotected, and have nuked all the niches, meaning the pathogenic bacteria have no competition to take over your whole body.
