Cheers dude! Pin was jammed. WD40 and some pliers soon sorted it out!

Excellent.
 
This video is one hour long. Recommended to me by Radomir Dopieralsky. It was worth every second that I watched it. Programmers will take special delight in this, but you may find value in it if you are not a programmer, too. Both his work, and his philosophy of principle based living, strike close to my heart. Special thank you to Radomir for the recommendation.

Awesome pictures.
With the recent conclusion of the National Geographic's 2011 photo contest, the results have now been announced. With the competition continuing to grow in popularity year on year, 2011 saw over 20,00...

"The Chaos" - G. Nolst Trenite

Dearest creature in creation,
Study English pronunciation.
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.
I will keep you, Suzy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy.
Tear in eye, your dress will tear.
So shall I! Oh hear my prayer.

Just compare heart, beard, and heard,
Dies and diet, lord and word,
Sword and sward, retain and Britain.
(Mind the latter, how it's written.)
Now I surely will not plague you
With such words as plaque and ague.
But be careful how you speak:
Say break and steak, but bleak and streak;
Cloven, oven, how and low,
Script, receipt, show, poem, and toe.

Hear me say, devoid of trickery,
Daughter, laughter, and Terpsichore,
Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles,
Exiles, similes, and reviles;
Scholar, vicar, and cigar,
Solar, mica, war and far;
One, anemone, Balmoral,
Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel;
Gertrude, German, wind and mind,
Scene, Melpomene, mankind.

Billet does not rhyme with ballet,
Bouquet, wallet, mallet, chalet.
Blood and flood are not like food,
Nor is mould like should and would.
Viscous, viscount, load and broad,
Toward, to forward, to reward.
And your pronunciation's OK
When you correctly say croquet,
Rounded, wounded, grieve and sieve,
Friend and fiend, alive and live.

Ivy, privy, famous; clamour
And enamour rhyme with hammer.
River, rival, tomb, bomb, comb,
Doll and roll and some and home.
Stranger does not rhyme with anger,
Neither does devour with clangour.
Souls but foul, haunt but aunt,
Font, front, wont, want, grand, and grant,
Shoes, goes, does. Now first say finger,
And then singer, ginger, linger,
Real, zeal, mauve, gauze, gouge and gauge,
Marriage, foliage, mirage, and age.

Query does not rhyme with very,
Nor does fury sound like bury.
Dost, lost, post and doth, cloth, loth.
Job, nob, bosom, transom, oath.
Though the differences seem little,
We say actual but victual.
Refer does not rhyme with deafer.
Foeffer does, and zephyr, heifer.
Mint, pint, senate and sedate;
Dull, bull, and George ate late.
Scenic, Arabic, Pacific,
Science, conscience, scientific.

Liberty, library, heave and heaven,
Rachel, ache, moustache, eleven.
We say hallowed, but allowed,
People, leopard, towed, but vowed.
Mark the differences, moreover,
Between mover, cover, clover;
Leeches, breeches, wise, precise,
Chalice, but police and lice;
Camel, constable, unstable,
Principle, disciple, label.

Petal, panel, and canal,
Wait, surprise, plait, promise, pal.
Worm and storm, chaise, chaos, chair,
Senator, spectator, mayor.
Tour, but our and succour, four.
Gas, alas, and Arkansas.
Sea, idea, Korea, area,
Psalm, Maria, but malaria.
Youth, south, southern, cleanse and clean.
Doctrine, turpentine, marine.

Compare alien with Italian,
Dandelion and battalion.
Sally with ally, yea, ye,
Eye, I, ay, aye, whey, and key.
Say aver, but ever, fever,
Neither, leisure, skein, deceiver.
Heron, granary, canary.
Crevice and device and aerie.

Face, but preface, not efface.
Phlegm, phlegmatic, ass, glass, bass.
Large, but target, gin, give, verging,
Ought, out, joust and scour, scourging.
Ear, but earn and wear and tear
Do not rhyme with here but ere.
Seven is right, but so is even,
Hyphen, roughen, nephew Stephen,
Monkey, donkey, Turk and jerk,
Ask, grasp, wasp, and cork and work.

Pronunciation -- think of Psyche!
Is a paling stout and spikey?
Won't it make you lose your wits,
Writing groats and saying grits?
It's a dark abyss or tunnel:
Strewn with stones, stowed, solace, gunwale,
Islington and Isle of Wight,
Housewife, verdict and indict.

Finally, which rhymes with enough --
Though, through, plough, or dough, or cough?
Hiccough has the sound of cup.
My advice is to give up!!!

Great little place right on the front. Perfect for a quick drink on a sunny day! Welcoming staff and a great atmosphere with patrons singing songs, a beer garden, space for kids to play, great views, a bbq and great hot chocolate! Perfect.

Perfect place for a drink after work, until the DJ starts up. For some reason they have a DJ stand by the entrance and put the music on so loud you cannot hear anyone talk. Everyone loves to the other end of the bar to get away from it, or leaves. Normally Hemma is great. Good music, comfortable seating, and welcoming staff. Bar service could much better with you having to wait 15minutes to get served in a relatively empty bar. Food is always top notch though. Sort out the few problems and people would stay there all night long.

Never disappoints. The burgers from Five Guys are nothing short of incredible and you always get plenty of fries and free nuts! If you want a no frills proper burger, forget the fancy gourmet burger places in town. This is the real deal.

Very rude staff wouldn't let us move a chair about 3 feet so everyone could have a seat. Cocktails were ok, but the card spend limit is just more than the price of one cocktail so you have to buy multiple at a time. Bouncers were unwelcoming and overly judgey about who could or couldn't go in. Not the sort of place I'd go back to and will certainly recommend friends to go to other places instead. Music was ok.
