    Look, I've already apologised for hacking into your collection of goat porn, but you should have encrypted it. I took the site down after two hours, anyway.

    You can try Googling the etymology section of the OED if you like. Good luck with that.

    I know it's terribly passť to look things up, instead of making things up, especially on BC.

    It's apparently been in use since the 14th century and relates to Canon Law. If only you knew some Roman Catholics, you could ask them.

    I love camping. Hated it as a kid, but I like the freedom of being able to pitch a tent wherever, without having any firm plans. Laup and I camped in a member's garden for a BC meet many years back!...

    This is actually quite a serious point. janet (with a lower-case j) who used to post on here, the Blue Place, and (prior to that) newsgroups, once pointed out that advertising that you're going on...

    Only Lord Ponsonby, who goes to a sleepy fishing village called Benidorm.

    Were you buggered more regularly in prison, or in church?

    Yes, the right-wing nationalist movements like to dress it up in Christianity (since we all know that Jesus was blond haired and blue eyed and definitely not a Jew, no siree), but I'd hope they're...

    You're in Devon, you can't begrudge the kid a pint of beer or two. He'll be going up chimneys in 18 months.

    Amazon have shot themselves in the foot with their spat with Google. Google will win. This means that the Fire Stick, which I think predates the Google Chromecast, can no longer show YouTube videos...

    Yes, but if I see a good TV programme I can't remember which channel it was on. Similarly, because we have a mixture of Now TV, Amazon Prime, Netflix and Virgin, I generally can't remember which...

    I've been to the US several times, and every time found the citizens there to be friendly and helpful, and nothing like the stereotypes we have of the US in Britain. That's also largely true of...

    Happy belated Independence Day!

    I was particularly impressed that the US revolutionary army took over airports in 1775. They must have been very far-sighted to have built them 128 years before the...

    Yes, I'm thinking about bringing my "Memnoch" sockpuppet back too, but I still have quite a few posts to catch up on first.

    Years ago I found one of my number plates was missing. I phoned the police, who weren't very interested on the grounds that number plates aren't expensive, so it was hardly a major theft. I pointed...

    Fascinating. And no, I'm not being sarcastic - I'm a bit of a tube geek. I was on the train to Hatton Cross on the day it opened in (I think) 1975, when they extended the Piccadilly Line.
