I expect it's the same situation as the "freaky people" who think an accused is "found innocent", and that a not guilty verdict means the accusers are therefore proven liars: some people are just...

Good for you for caring about what happens next. I guess it must be a decent place to work?

But, you have to put yourself first, because no-one else will. If you feel it's right for you to go, take...

Good grief! What an idiot.

Best part of that post: the word "ex". :D

That's what I was thinking. I'm glad they get to feel safe(r), but this isn't exactly addressing the real problem.

Quite. But people believe garbage like this because they want to, not because it makes any sense, so they'd probably give the same answer that the 9/11 "truth"ers do: "I don't know, but that's why we...

Oops!

Won't make much difference, though. The reason there are still "psychics" around is that people have an endless stream of excuses to explain away things like this. She was having a bad day/ it...

Yes, good point. People don't take celeb stories seriously, or not usually, anyway... If the same footage had on YouTube, but it had been just ordinary people, I expect there would have been a...

Making people pay to see their GP isn't going to happen.

But although it sounds better, making people who miss appointments pay won't happen, either. You can't make people pay if they don't have the...

For me, as a kid, we had 8 weeks summer holidays, and it wasn't long enough. We'd go to stay with my grandmas, so that meant about 4x weeks in the Isle of Man, then 2x weeks in North Wales. The rest...

Umm, no.

Same starting issue as several other people, I see, a parent dying young (my dad, when I was 8). So I ended up moving from a friendly, sleepy, small village school to a big and tough town...
