I don't get it, you're literate, articulate, clearly have a brain, you clearly know how to understand what's put in front of you........ I don't understand why you're deliberately, going out of your way, to be a complete moron!? Every single point you've made up to 10 minutes into the video, is nothing more than a very narrowly debatable argument, that you're stating as fact, with a big smug grin.

Who do you suggest people vote for instead of UKIP if they want to leave the EU? Forget the simple sound bites, which may be every so slightly incorrect, or slightly bending the truth to make the point better, if I as an intelligent person, who made his own mind up in 2003 about the EU, but only finally joined UKIP in 2011 when the EU finally cemented it's intentions to completely destroy member states and run everything from the EUC, want to leave the EU, who should I vote for in your opinion?

Considering your intelligence and your apparent ambition level being above that of 'mong', you may find as you grow older, that you're much less ready to declare yourself a socialist too.

Just a couple of other points for you in your decision making process too, NASA is FAR from the epitome of science and fact and the fact that not everyone has your intelligence, means that some times, things are said which you may find yourself picking at the nitty gritty of, because you actually understand it. This does not make the statement 'untrue' and is certainly not a reason to go ranting about the person who said it being completely and utterly wrong. I could do this with just about anything said by any politician, including Nigel Farage, I don't, because I understand why they do it and they ALL do it.

If you want to be a part of a federal Europe, please go elsewhere, to a country where they're used to being ruled by fascist/socialist/maoist/communist dictators and forced to all be the same, because Britain is NOT that place. I pray it never is.

So so true! Something to live your life by definitely.
 
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full.. The students responded with a unanimous ‘yes.’

The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand.The students laughed..

‘Now,’ said the professor as the laughter subsided, ‘I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things—-your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions—-and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.. The sand is everything else—-the small stuff.

‘If you put the sand into the jar first,’ he continued, ‘there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life.

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

Spend time with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and mow the lawn.

Take care of the golf balls first—-the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented. The professor smiled and said, ‘I’m glad you asked.’ The Beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of Beers with a friend.

Perfect, now someone alert the lawyers!
 
I saw this today and was confused. I thought it was just a really good deal on an iPhone. Apparently it's just a copycat like #Samsung

Spent the day at Blyton Park Circuit near Gainsborough. Rose took the Z out with an instructor in the car to get some proper tuition on racing lines, speeds, gears, etc.

Well, I finally got round to watching Capt America last night on blueray, for the first time......what an awesome film! I'd already seen Iron Man 1 and 2 and we have Thor on blueray too, which is an epic film, so now just can't wait to see the Avengers Assemble film. I think I'll wait until it's on blueray though, as cinemas are a bit crap these days, smelly, dirty, lots of kids screaming and shouting, picture quality is always a bit naff, sound tends to be up 'too' loud etc.
