    Heads Of State/government

    Better still, just close it. Nobody has been posting in it.

    Elon Musk

    He might have had more success if he hadn't been the one to start the slanging match. His remarks about Musk were uncalled for and ungrateful. No sympathy here.

    There's a joke in there somewhere, but I'm not going there.

    Plants: The Other Life Form

    "There are more than 17,000 elm trees in Brighton and Hove." I'm amazed to read that. I thought DED got all our elms years ago.

    Well yes, that was my thinking.

    A Joke

    There's even a book that takes as its title the punchline of another version The joke is on pages 159/160 of the preview. A search for "tundra" should find it.

    But participants could confer on here before making their selections, yes?

    Does everyone make their selection independently, or do they know which names have already been chosen by others in their group?

    How does it work? Everybody picks 20 people? Does everybody have to pick different people?
  11. Something has been living in my car I keep a fleece blanket in the back (it's a hatchback) for contingencies. It's rolled up in a carrier bag. Today I bought a picture, and as it is framed with glass I got the blanket out to wrap it up safely for transportation. I shook the blanket out to find that it had been nibbled and shredded by .... something. Most disconcerting.

    The Priests Of Father Ted

    A couple of years ago, Mr McSorley .... was on the run from the law after 'breaking a couple of flower pots' outside a bank in Bunbeg. That actually sounds like a line from Father Ted.

    Who Should Be On The 2020 Deathlist?

    I've never heard of him either
  16. Why is that? I thought they said they were doing a deal (the LDs, the Greens and Plaid Cymru) not to stand against each other. That's why I was surprised (and annoyed) to see the Greens fielding a candidate in my constituency. They did well to win several seats in the recent council elections, but they have no chance of winning the seat here. Whereas the LDs have held this seat in the not-too-distant past and are the only ones with any chance of ousting the Conservatives.

    And it was several hours before all the spots were taken.
  20. So which constituency is that? As for money, our outgoing MP owns most of Berkshire.

    28 Years Of The Deathlist!

    I particularly remember the Picasso death because they said he left £25 million, which was an unimaginably large sum at the time (and indeed not to be sniffed at today). My mother and I were fascinated by this, as we figured that he could generate himself some more pocket money any time he wanted to, simply by scrawling something on a spare bit of paper.
