Print Story And a very merry Tuesday to you all

Well, most of you.

Well, clearly British manufacturing and export is not quite dead. Mind you, £12,000 for a set of gallows? Who are you hanging? People from Florida?

And they're making thus guy's business illegal. I suppose these items could be used for harming people unlike the fighter jets or armoured cars - which normally get you a knighthood when you export them to dodgy regimes.

Had a consultant in at LCC a couple of weeks ago. We were chatting about things like me being a super-architect with an in depth knowledge of the insurance industry. I sent him a tentative e-mail enquiring whether he might know of any more interesting (and lucrative) employment opportunities. The response looks positive.

Also, got a call from an agency end of last week. Very interesting souning opportunity which fits my skills and also gives about a 55% pay hike.

Note to self: do not rant about C++ in interviews.

Is it just me, or has the "Have you say" section on the BBC News site been taken over by Daily Mail readers?

Shame abou Blaine missing the record. Had I been there, I would've been tempted to help him keep his head under water.

The question we all want to know the answer to: has Jacob Zuma had an HIV test?

What is it with animal rights nutters and medical research? If you could put a number on "animal suffering", surely Mc Donalds beats GSK hands down. They had a nutter on the radio news earlier. When asked "would you take a GSK medicine to save your life?" he did a splendid job of not answering the question.

Tree hugging terrorists should be banned from enjoying the benefits of any technology developed after the Black Death in the 14th century.  Since that's where the Yerpian commies want to move us back to anyway, it's one of the few Lauren Order policies that they might not dock-block.

are post black plague no? I mean, the hangueman's notte is a recent invention, isn't it?

Anyway, this could do a lot of damage to the bed making industry. Most old people these days are executed by means of mattresses.

do not rant about C++ in interviews. by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #5 Tue May 09, 2006 at 05:45:25 PM EST
Why not? Might improve your chances of getting a job, and would improve your chances of not getting a sucky job.

Probably fall apart after a couple of hangings.

It's political correctness gone mad!

the manufacturer will be bought by a huge German company and eventually be closed for dubious reasons and you'll be left with your broken gallows and no real opportunity to get any spare parts to fix it...
