Astonishing recklessness

Just had a an awesome idea for a new reality tv show. 'The seX factor!' Where each week eager contestants compete for the role in a new porn film by demonstrating their sex skills in a series of five minute performances to pop music after which they are dressed down (snigger) by a panel of 's'experts and the public vote for their fave

As an atheist it is clear to me that I do not have an irrational belief in the non-existence of god. No, it's more subtle than that. It is more correctly a lack of belief. And more specifically a lack of belief in any of the so far suggested gods, be it mono or polytheistic, across the span of homo's cultural heritage.

Then some might suggest that because the universe is so ineffable that it is impossible to know if there isn't some sort of god. And here is where the argument becomes laughable because just how is it, exactly, that you're defining 'god'. A 'creator', a 'meddler', a 'thinker', a 'cold and callous automaton', with a body or ethereal, what type of body, are they alive, do they have sex, a subset of those descriptions perhaps reductio ad absurdum. At this point the definitions become so specific or broad as to be ridiculous. Why should I believe in these entities either?

I think science and a rule of thumb is most appropriate here. I believe in it if the proof is incontrovertible (evolution, general relativity, the 2nd law etc). I will accept it as fact if the evidence is strong even if the proof is not forthcoming (Riemann hypothesis). The rest should be dealt with with a healthy dose of scepticism (Elvis lives, the tooth fairy, doorways to other worlds in the cupboard).

Syreeta teaches these guys at her school. Good advice. How they managed to bag Geri Halliwell to star in the video I've no idea. Think she's let herself go a bit.

Food ok but service diabolical. The door says 10:00-14:30 but apparently turning up at 14:00 is too late. Second time this has happened. First time was Christmas eve so we just accepted it as staff wanting to go home for Christmas and left it at that. This time however was mid-January and it seems that turning away customers well within the time limit from a nearly empty restaurant is good business. I'm here to inform them this is not the case. After a rather uncomfortable discussion about the timing of our arrival, the timing on the door and when they would, without question, lock the doors, we were allowed to eat (14:30 bang on the dot apparently, so that timing on the door is different to most restaurants where the time typically represents last sitting rather than door locking and customer ejection time). To be honest I wouldn't have bothered if I wasn't very hungry. However, I will not return again (after visiting since its opening) and will eat elsewhere. Once we'd sat down the service was brusque and forced. Such a shame for what could have been Warwickshire's version of London's Hawksmoor. Andreas Antona will be surely disappointed that the new owners are tarnishing his name with the reduction in the quality of service since his departure. Fortunately there are many other places to eat with far better quality and service.

Went on a cold but clear winter's day. Most of the enclosures were full apart from the gibbon house where significant work was being carried out to provide them with a brand new and very large new facility. Saw the snow leopards being fed and the amur leopard just resting. Many of the monkeys were playing and brachiating as were the gibbons that we saw. The atmosphere was good and the staff very enthusiastic. Had lunch at their chippy and was impressed. Cooked the scampi fresh. One of the best features was the pre-entrance building, with shops, cafes (had two very nice lattes) and a huge soft play area for the, err, kids... ahem. Just glad I've got a young daughter to give me an excuse to play in the ball pit, slide down the slide and partake in a spot of brachiation myself.

Wouldn't let us test drive without deciding to buy the car first which is putting the cart before the horse. Also, ridiculous price offered for part exchange. £500 for a car listed at £2300. Avoid. Update: Sent an email to their customer service team. It's been a week, no response. Dodgy

I would visit this place quick before they're awarded their first michelin star and the prices go up. I've been to Le Gavroche recently and I rated my food tonight as better in every category. Presentation, flavour, creativity, price. Looking forward to returning to sample their tasting menu and selected wines.
