You ought to be watching out for Aspartame, but what to do about Neotame? Does anyone know the UK status of this product?

#aspartame Isn't that the point - how on earth can we watch for this, except by avoiding all artificially sweetened foods? Come to think of it....;-)

I've seen this floating around the internet today. It is worth a reshare here.

This happened on TAM airlines.

A 50-something year old white woman arrived at her seat and saw that the passenger next to her was a black man.

Visibly furious, she called the air hostess.

"What's the problem, ma?" the hostess asked her

"Can't you see?" the lady said - "I was given a seat next to a black man. I can't seat here next to him. You have to change my seat"

- "Please, calm down, ma" - said the hostess
"Unfortunately, all the seats are occupied, but I'm still going to check if we have any."

The hostess left and returned some minutes later.

"Madam, as I told you, there isn't any empty seat in this class- economy class.
But I spoke to the captain and he confirmed that there isn't any empty seats in the economy class. We only have seats in the first class."

And before the woman said anything, the hostess continued

"Look, it is unusual for our company to allow a passenger from the economy class change to the first class.
However, given the circumstances, the commandant thinks that it would be a scandal to make a passenger travel sat next to an unpleasant person."

And turning to the black man, the hostess said:

"Which means, Sir, if you would be so nice to pack your handbag, we have reserved you a seat in the first class..."

And all the passengers nearby, who were shocked to see the scene started applauding, some standing on their feet."

SHARE IF YOU ARE AGAINST RACISM!

Yes, absolutely - but I still like it! The big clue is TAM - they operate largely in South America......

So, Zuckerberg cashes in selling a chunk of #facebook - since they are rolling in cash, does this mean he reckons the value is peaking around now?

given that the public are very fickle and will without doubt find something else to move onto, MR zuckerberg must realise nothing lasts forever and that Facebook will follow Bebo etc into net history.

Did I hear right? If the Scots go independent from the rest of the UK, they want to use the UK pound until they decide what to do about the Euro. Clearly they have not noticed what is happening in Greece, Portugal, Italy etc where they need to alter their exchange rate but can't. I don't see how either option can be good for an independent country - surely if you manage your own international and domestic finances, you need to have your own exchange rate?

Glad to hear it - if scots want to break away, that's fine by me but I don't think that would be a clean break, the bonds are too deep in every sphere of life. Interesting to see what the policy would be on work permits though.... unless Scotland becomes part of the EU, in which case the EU law says they must adopt the Euro......

Garbage in, garbage out - old systems engineering law. Who would you repopulate with, that has the skill, strength and leadership to build a system that would survive and be effective in the context of multlateral trade and population migrations?

I have arrived at A&E with a crushed toe, botulism poisoning and a broken back. Every time, I get faultless service, but you do need to be patient given the number of people there who should go to their GP or just stay sober. Nice work, you great people.

We regularly use this charming venue - not fancy, but clean, good film selections and some good live acts. Catering is adequate but not OMH standard, with some superb exhibitions in the gallery as a bonus. Great value.

Nice ambiance, always consistently good food and service. I wish I didn't have to drive there - I really want to try their excellent range of draft beers, but rarely can. A local treasure, and I have never had a bad experience thre.

What a building! Friendly atmosphere, intelligent film selection, good refreshments available, and very comfortable seats, some of which are doubles - we count those as a bonus when we can book one....

I have only used this place once, and found it to be fine. No problem with the service, and the food is of course the same as any other branch. Another Sloppy Guiseppe with garlic bread next time I am there, no doubt.

Dropped in by chance early one evening, and had excellent food. Lamb Rogan Josh was subtly spiced and quite strong, prawn bhuna was very tasty - not bland as many are. Huge menu, very obliging service. We felt quite at home and will go back, either to eat again or as a take away. Second visit: very different - my beef madras was very boring, and my wife's prawn bhuna was very much less enjoyable than last time - bland and flat. Different man taking the orders, so maybe the A-team were on holiday? The credit card machine was broken, and they didn't,,t warn us to bring cash, so it was pure luck I had enough money to pay. Time to think hard about an alternative.
