Dr. Karl, Of course they are. When I took them, they were really hard. Now they're just a bunch of panzy exams my cat could pass. To be perfectly honest, I don't think so. They're getting more trivial which is a detriment to the education of the teenagers taking them but whether or not they're easie...

Simbo, I came across this in the wee hours of the morning and figured i'd be able to give a better reply today than the half-baked one I was concocting last night. So here goes. I've always found it difficult to understand when women say they want to stay or go back to someone who hits them, fortuna...

Ratbert, I'd suggest taking the approach recommended by Stevie and Ratbert here. The lack of water in the system is a very important feature here. Even the slightest bit hydrated leads to a worse performance from your body. Research suggests that if you were the slightest bit thirsty during a footba...

Natasha, Sadly societies built around consequences and those willing to do the right thing are all too knowledgeable on the consequences of their actions. I'll give you an example. Some people round our house got spat on and because they hit back and did the right thing IMO they ended up getting a p...

WTID, If Wigan go down it'll be because they never really approached the premiership with any conviction. The teamsheet always makes Wigan look like second favourites. Wigan need to know they belong where they do and start attracting the sort of players that deserve to play in the premiership. Only ...

Luna,

I hear what you're saying but I don't know what you're asking me for. Although if you want to know something AC/DC have stopped producing because they've discovered internet movie forums from which they're contracting you're English teacher to get at you.

Pfiddle. Wedding Crashers had me laughing on and off during the film. It's what I paid for and its what I got. I'd give it a **** star rating.

Zulu, There is a trap that can catch me. Fortunately though, this trap can only be executed by the Berlin Police on one motorcycle whilst leaning over the side of a boat. Something along the lines of this (Which sadly has befallen my piratey friend, Argh!): http://img278.imageshack.us/img278/1104/ar...

Here's what Don has to say on the matter: 'On the day of the wedding the disc jockey becomes your per...

Another good movie I strongly recommend anyone to go watching is that Wedding Crashers film. I thought it was going to be quite the drivel due to the premise of it and Owen Wilson's appearance but they both pull the movie off extremely well and its got enough comedy in it to make you feel like its a...

Plodder, no apologies necessary. I am in full agreement with you on this one. Take the Harry Potter thread for example (soon to be removed I hope), pure show of disrespect to other members. As if that wasn't bad enough we've had a number of fecktards ploughing pure tripe through the messageboards. B...

Soldier, Your question is very leading, it seems you've already made youre mind up about what you're wanting to do, yet you're just looking for that extra push to go do it. While I wouldn't necessarily recommend either I would suggest you follow what you think is right for you. What I can recommend ...

I suspect you are trying to convey to your mate that he is a cissy for drinking lager. A perfectly laudable aim.

Try this. Bitter is brewed with seeded hops whereas lager is brewed with seedless hops. So your mates beer has effectively had it's nuts chopped off.
Well said that man.

Sorry misread Beer for Bitter.. Well, Lager is a Beer. Your comparison is like comparing a Dalmation to the Dog Family. Its a part of it just with minor differences. Beer can have varying styles of fermentation like Ales whereas a Lager is specifically set to a specific form of fermentation. Your ma...

Bench, Bitter is top-fermented, hoppy, dry, and lightly carbonated. Lager is made with a bottom fermenting yeast, and are characteristically "smooth, elegant, crisp, and clean. Lagers - Lagers are brewed using a "bottom-fermenting yeast". This kind of yeast sinks to the bottom of the wort to do most...

Yeah, but as I was posting the response to Bench's question to me. You snuck in and did it first, so I edited mine to make more sense and rather than detracting my original post, I left it up there for Bench to see. Save having wasted time searching for it. Dreadfully sorry if I answered a question ...
