I wonder how much industrial production was lost yesterday?

I've been looking at a lot of newspaper sites today. Seems like half the population were stuck in queues at garage forecourts, while the other half were home banging sanctimonious comments about sheep and morons into the "free comment" sections.

A victory for...?

... the drug companies probably, as I would guess blood pressure levels were elevated among pretty much all the population yesterday.

The first victim of the created panic by the Tories and media.


Quote:
A fire service spokesman said: "Her daughter asked her mum for petrol because she had run out. The cooker was on and the fumes ignited."

Station manager Lee Smith, whose Acomb crew attended the fire, said: "The people were cooking their tea and dispensing petrol from a container to a glass jug.
"The vapour then ignited, the jug was then spilt which obviously ignited as well and the person involved in the decanting was consumed by the flames.

"Her daughter phoned 999 and was obviously extremely distressed."


:facepalm:

Whatever is wrong with Maud, I don't recall him advising anyone to "pour petrol from a proper fuel container into a glass bottle over your kitchen sink when you've also got the cooker on".

A joke about thick crust would not be appropriate.

That's it. If there is a God then I'm definitely off to Hell after sniggering after that comment by GB1.
