This is a link post Okay, I got two questions regarding this
1. How come shaving someone's head is "actual bodily harm"?
2. The runt called 999, why didn't he get a bollocking seeing as the matter clearly wasn't an emergency?

This is a normal post I imagine there's precedent in case law where hair has been included as part of the body for the definition of bodily harm
Oherwise it's like saying ripping off someones aerial on their car doesn't count for insurance purposes.
But yes, calling 999 does seem an overkill to a haircut

I'd say that a 10-year-old boy under attack from a 21 year old man "while others sat around and laughed" is a damn fine reason to call 999.

This is a normal post I used to create training for the coppers in the UK at the police training college in Hendon; criminal damge, PACE, misuse of drugs, etc
it was a few years ago now but I probably know far more than the layman. The statutes tend not to go into exhaustive definitions, e.g. "Spitting is but licking is not within the definition, unless it's on the eyeball", but instead rely on case law (unlike Frog law). It would take the CPS a few minutes of tapping to look at relevant precendent in GBH and Haircutting before deciding to proceed, if indeed the news report was accurate about the charge

This is a normal post For common assault
you don't even need to touch someone - a threat will do
Make contact and it's actual bodily harm -Worth bearing in mind next time you think about grabbing someone's lapels.
The problem comes at the upper end where 'grievious bodily harm' has covered everything from broken facial bones to that guy who had himself euthanised following total paralysis, blindness and constant paid from an acid attack.

This is a normal post It's an infra-red based system
The slice you want to fuse is printed in an infra-red absorbing 'ink' on each pass which is heated by the high-intensity lamps fore and aft of the printing head. So, if you have a load of separate parts in the same layer they're all done at the same time on each pass - hence the speed.

I was about to say that I admire but don't understand people who do this kind of thing. But, on reflection, I'm not sure you can admire someone whose actions are utterly opaque.

And to admire someone implies a kind of wishing that you could do the same. I don't. I've no desire at all to do anything like that.

This is a normal post I don't think that that's enough.
To borrow a hackneyed example from the literature: imagine that someone spent hours and hours, and a great deal of effort, trying to teach asparagus to speak. I don't think we'd admire his perseverance, because the whole enterprise is worthless.

Of course, the analogy isn't perfect, because we know something about the chances of success in that case and this. But it does show, I think, that perseverance itself is not enough; likewise, effort. The aim in mind has to make a kind of sense as well - and that's where I lose grip. I simply don't get it. In fact, it's more than that. I'm kind of hostile to the whole thing...
