Re: Christmas lights

I bought some similar to those Wilko ones from Sainsbury's - it's a really nice effect. Wilko have also done a nice cyan and purple set of LEDs for the past couple of years, with some really good smoothing (meaning no flicker as your eyes move around the room). I've noticed a bigger range of battery...

Re: Brexit

However, there is no lower age bound to the honour of being taxed by the government so I am not sure I fully buy the taxation/representation line, however snappy it may sound! Well I've always taken the minimum school leaving age as the border between "child" and "working adult" (which is 15/16) so...

There are several words to describe the vote that happened in June 2016. Democracy doesn't come close.
Less democratic than First Past The Post?

Re: Brexit

Theres going to be a hell of a lot more than 16 jobs lost as a result of brexit, which I'm sure you know. I'm sure you're alright, jack, though. As long as you've still got your job and your blue passport, who cares about other people, eh? Maybe you need to remember that real people are being affec...

Re: Brexit

Is pandering to the anti-immigration crowd really worth it to remain in the EU?

Re: Coca-Cola Cinnamon ‘Special Festive Edition’

Whilst only slightly related in being libation, Tesco Plum and Pear flavoured water is currently my favourite flavoured water, having only first tried it a few weeks ago (possibly a new flavour? It's the only one with a new style label). It's even better now they've got the bottles at 37p each - it ...

If you go to Germany, there's a Cola / Orange combo which is bloody gorgeous. They also have MINT Sprite.
I presume that would be similar to 7Up Mojito in this country.

Re: Coca-Cola Cinnamon ‘Special Festive Edition’

It’s basically Coca-Cola but with an incredibly subtle cinnamon taste. Anyone else underwhelmed? I’d much rather have the IKEA Swedish festive drink Vintersaga if they bring it back this year. I've been unable to acquire some myself. I am of the belief (though there are members on here who are prob...

The Quasi-Official Shrinkflation Watch Thread

Do you hate it when it shrinks? I'm not a massive fan of shrinking product sizes over price increases, so I was surprised to see 7 packs of Twixes at Morrisons and Tesco, with the bars at the old 50g size (as opposed to the 40g in the 4 packs) - and at a decent price too. Now I can make do with 2 fi...

So you're saying it was an insurance jobby, yeah?
