I've added a little graphic that plots the conical cross section of the theoretical dogshit mountain (if collected as a cone) from a perfect circle today until after incremental rotations of 0.06460875807609 degrees each day it will show a perfect triangle on the day I retire... Beat that AT. 8)

If you had a diagram of the Earth the size of a pea, and Jupiter the size of a tennis ball, and then scaled up by a magnitude so that Jupiter was the size of a pea and the Sun was the size of a tennis ball, have a guess how many scalars you'd have to go through from the size of a quark through to the size of the visible horizon of the universe we can see at present.

Here's a clue, think about this: taking the size of a tree for example and scaling up at the same proportion, it takes a mere ten iterations to get from an acorn to the sun. Just to get from a quark to to an acorn would take you longer than you can possibly live to number those iterations if you counted them out one by one. From the size of the Sun to the visible boundary of the universe is a larger count by a billion billion times that. Are you feeling quite insignificant? I am.

Oh, don't suppose there is a chance it might go Pete Tong and she actually gets a custodial sentence is there?

I'd applaud a custodial sentence now she's appealed against a non-custodial sentence - she did, after all, stab him.

Someone is going to have to explain to me, why she is appealing.....I cannot fathom that. Appealing the sentence? Why?

Because she thinks she's privileged and shouldn't have such a chav thing as a criminal record? Best I can come up with.

She's not appealing the verdict though, but the sentence...she will still have the same criminal record.

Appealing the suspended sentence to me sounds like she's worried she might stab someone again.....

The suspended sentence won't just apply to stabbing somebody with a kitchen knife twelve inches long costing four quid and bought at Aldi or somewhere whilst under the influence of Vodka. In other words, there are no terms and conditions; It means that she has a criminal record suspended sentence already in the locker if she gets involved in a pub/club/domestic shindig anywhere and goes to court for it. A bit like points on your driving licence with extreme malice. She's probably appealing it so it can't count against at all.

I was being a bit facetious but yes. General opinion though was she was let off fairly lightly, and therefore would you not just keep your head down and see it through?

"fairly lightly"?

You're celebrating the product of two reality TV shows as being a role model for young people to aspire to? Doesn't that seem a contradiction. Isn't the reality TV culture, very much responsible for shaping a society where SUPPOSEDLY (and according to you) young people (see snowflakes) think they are owed something?

Ha. Hoboh has been watching a reality TV show where a winner was a young woman who also happens to be famous, and consequently on said reality show, for being on another reality show.

I haven't watched either show but I'm down enough with the kids to know, who and what he's on about (also have a wife who insists on telling me all about it).
