Alas, Uther, ADOS speaks the all-too-painful truth. Pieces and Bart have gone to the beer volcano, where they undoubtedly are doing their level best to drink it dry, merrily insulting us all the while.

They are sorely missed.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Thanks for the info...

Shit, shit, shit... hard to believe even so....

I did make the "Welsh connection" with Bart. I finally travelled back to UK (from NZ) (left as a child 50 years ago)... end of last year. I stayed in London and travelled to Wales (place of my birth). I Remembered Bart then and thought how I might have met up with him had I still been in contact (via FSM)

And Pieces...... one of the smartest people I have come across online... with artistic talent too.!! And GORGEOUS to look at.

I need time to digest all this..... so sad.

Sorry about the Off Topic Post(s).

Don't worry about it, Uther. The place has been a bit quiet for the past few months, a bit of readjustment is necessary all round. There are a couple of threads dedicated to their passing, still open for contributions.

Anyway, back to funny stuff: The Seattle Symphony Orchestra featuring Sir Mix-A-Lot: "Baby Got Back"

Department for Education spokeswoman wrote:Further strike action will only disrupt parents' lives, hold back children's education and damage the reputation of the profession. We know that the vast majority of our teachers and school leaders are hardworking and dedicated professionals. That is why we are giving teachers more freedoms than ever and cutting unnecessary paperwork and bureaucracy. In fact, teaching has never been more attractive, more popular or more rewarding
:haha:

Interestingly enough, the latest meeting I was in today (before leaving rapidly when it turned out I wasn't supposed to be there) was proposing a new tracker spreadsheet. It will require 6 double sided pages of A4 (in size 8 font) of ticklists to be filled out for every pupil in Year 7 and 8 based on their progress and test scores. Some teachers might have 6 sets of 30 kids to do this for and keep updating it through the year. The new system is being proposed because the current level system (used by all schools across KS2 and KS3 (primary to early secondary) is being scrapped). This is in addition to rewriting Schemes of Work because of the curriculum changes. Still, no extra bureaucracy :idiot:

I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

I never did understand the American thing of putting pills in the little orange pots. In England (and I presume for the rest of the UK) drugs, both prescription and over-the-counter, come in sealed blister packets (the kind where you 'pop' pills through foil). They're also usually labelled with the drug and dose on the packet and sometimes on the pills themselves (fond memories of 30/500 on codeine/paracetamol pills come back to me).

Do US pharmacies get pills in big boxes and count them out into orange pots? Do they come in blister packs and are popped out into orange pots? Are the orange pots just used in film and TV to show drugs are being prescribed (I know they featured heavily whenever House was having one of his junkie moments)?

It sounds bizarre but this, along with why Breaking Bad used hydrofluoric acid, is one of the things annoying me about US tv at the moment.
