Absolutely hand them in. If you fail to punish your child for murder, one of the very worst things they could possibly do, then you lose all authority as a parent.

Two questions:

1) Would you prosecute someone who has downloaded 50 films to their laptop illegally?

If you have ever saved an image from Google to your laptop, you have illegally made a copy of material that you should have paid for. I can't imagine there are many people in the Western world who...

Anyone who thinks that at this point in time, there is any remote chance of piracy being stopped needs to get real and stop under-estimating the innovation and skill of the pirates.

For me it's weird, I don't eat dairy stuff at all (and I hate eggs) but I do eat a lot of meat, so making the jump from meat-eater to vegetarian is what scares me. If I could do that I might as well...

I cannot for the life of me understand the appeal of a "full English". Heart attack on a plate which tastes of nothing but salt and slime.

I guess it depends where you move to as well. A retired couple moving to Benidorm won't face much cultural upheaval, it's basically Britain on a beach.

I'm pretty sure I meant orange juice. And in any case an orange probably weighs more than a Mars bar, I think?

But yeah, it was just a random example to illustrate a point about the grey areas of...

Yeah, I really hate the whole culture of drinking and I have a much better time if I'm sober. Some of the reactions I get to that are borderline offensive and imply that I'm boring. If you need other...
