I usually avoid fast food fish at all costs after an unfortunate McFillet-o-fish I had once. HOWEVER, every rule has an exception, and that exception is Banny's Indian fish and chips from a local chain around here. Pricey, but whenever I'm sent for a shift in our other hospital I swing by their driv...Jump to post

But how do you define when a t-rex is a t-rex? I mean, it would have evolved from an earlier ancestor, but where is the boundary?
Humans obviously evolved from earlier apes, but it's not like one day humans turned up. It would have been a slow gradual evolution.
The US has recorded 233 mass shootings this year and we are only on month 5. https://www.gunviolencearchive.org/ Oh, seems that the US is on the way to a new all time record or just a record of last years? Also numbers of last years (2018/2019/2020) were....excellent.... It truly is a circus over t...Jump to post
Well, I don't really know what to say about this.
I don't see the logic at all.
Unless this is another shooting, it's already been discussed in the United States Mass Shooting thread.

IIRC she was 28 weeks, 7 months along I’m amazed the baby was able to survive for 3 more hours after being born in an airplane. Fantastic work and amazing job by the doctor and nurses. Why? There was a time before hospitals existed and somehow the species was able to make it. But in days of yore, h...Jump to post
Surprised this isn't being discussed yet. Awful news from Mexico City of a metro overpass collapsing onto a busy road, taking a train with it. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-56977129 An interesting point from the article was that local residents reported cracks in the structure after...Jump to post
I regularly have a go on Grand Theft Auto, I'm a big fan of the series. However, I've never even had a slight inclination to go stealing cars, shooting up prostitutes, going on a police chase, etc etc.Jump to post
So you've had the vaccine, you are fit and healthy yet you want to carry on wearing a mask? I will be the guy across the aisle who is pointing and laughing at you.

Where do you come up with this crap? It's illegal for people adjudged mentally ill or convicted felons to purchase firearms. That's what's so frustrating for us responsible gun owners (99.99%).

We get it, even the mass slaughter in one incident of young children just made all you the gun nuts not give a crap as no one's lives are important than their cradling their precious guns It's sickening, isn't it.

So, seeing as we're now hearing of another mass shooting (this time in Indianapolis), maybe it's time for a merge of all American mass shooting threads into one, to save the forum being peppered with them. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-56770200 This one took place at a FedEx facility.

I very much doubt it. Spending all that money on a yacht in this economic climate would not go down well with the UK population, not well at all. And is a yacht needed? I mean yes the previous one was used as a venue to entertain foreign heads of state but the Royal residences could be used for that...Jump to post
UK- I have a kind of hierarchy. If I'm on a long drive home to see family or whatever and fast food is my only option then I always look for McD's or Subway then if not then BK (best tasting burgers, although they seem to be getting quite expensive), failing that then grab something in Gregg's or St...Jump to post
This is slightly off-topic but I don't know if it's really needed to put up a spoiler warning for a movie that premiered over 25 years ago and where multiple sources have discussed said scene without warnings (I remember watching a documentary as a kid that mentioned said scene and never out up a s...Jump to post
Strangely it all started roundabout I went to my friends house who had just got a new (at the time) PS1 game called Air Combat, a precursor to the Ace Combat series. That ignited a little spark, but it was when I went to another friends house who had just got the newly released FS98 that I was hooke...Jump to post

From the photos, it appears that the A/C has seating for only 2. One pilot and one pax.

Of course Brits please feel free to correct me on this if I'm wrong, but from what I've seen private residences in the UK, whether individual buildings or apartments/flats, tend to be heated by radiators rather than by forced air ventilation systems. For the most part that is correct. Most houses h...Jump to post

Special mention should go to KFC, after all they did have "Chicken" in their company name for more than 60 years and produce, when cooked and served fresh in the UK (and likely other areas) one of the best gastronomical delights in human history - the Zinger burger.

I'd say it is the ability to process information and also, as fr8mech says, ability to learn. A lot of people seem to think it means you just happen to know a lot (trivia etc), but I disagree.

A warship has history and the structure of the ship are the exhibits. The same for the old ocean liners. In a cruise ship, the role of the ship is to transport you between interesting destinations.
