This is a normal post Nearly all of it to be honest...
I'm not one of these Ford or Chevy only types. I currently Drive a 94 Mustang GT, Not a classic I know but was cheap and the Old Chyrsler New Yorker had just gone bang. The styling is the main thing for me, some of the older cars are like pieces of art. Muscle cars are great for their Simplicity yet awe inspiring performance. I like to be able to work on my own cars and American ones are nice and easy to do that on. So basically a whole mash up of these reasons. I'd Love a 67 Barracuda Fastback if money was no object or an AMC Gremlin. It's just finding them thats the difficult part.

This is a normal post Hmmmm
I take your point. In reality, though, it's not. Someone might swear on a Bible whilst being sworn in as a parking attendant, but it doesn't mean they derive their authority from God and the local council is thereby a theocracy.

The Queen is a special case because of all the 'Defender of the Faith' guff and being head of her own Church, of course, but still, I can't imagine her claiming her authority to rule 'derives directly from God'. Can't imagine anyone has tried that line with any seriousness since the Stuarts.

I did once know a man who claimed to believe in the Divine Right of Kings, but he was a nutcase. Think he later joined UKIP...
(, Tue 12 Feb 2013, 14:42, Reply)
This is a normal post true, it's somewhat archaic,
although it was derived from a line in the Bible so a lot of Christians still believe it.

Oh we also have the Lords Spiritual (Church of England Bishops in the House of Lords) which makes us the only country other than Iran to explicitly include religious leaders in the legislative assembly. Or so I heard.

The "In God We Trust" thing in the states is an odd one though, because their State is very much more secular than ours, technically. They aren't even allowed religious observances in state run schools (a policy which is sometimes enforced with an absurd level of fervour). But the Federal Reserve isn't actually part of the government, but a sort of private company. Actually the way the whole outfit works is so odd that, frankly, God help them.

This is a normal post The US is very interesting as a contrast
In the UK there's an enormous detritus of tradition and convention which is sometimes pretty benign (things like the Monarch being anointed before Coronation) and sometimes quite worrying (like the Bishops in the upper chamber). Most people don't worry about it most of the time.

In America, on the other hand, they had Founding Fathers who set up a secular state, and were pretty unequivocal about that (Treaty of Tripoli, for example), but a population many of whom are passionately fighting to make it less so.

This is a normal post Bishops in the House of Lords don't worry me,

This is a normal post I did lots of unpaid "work experience"
From about the age of 14 upwards. How did I afford it? I lived with my folks (as you would expect at that age) and I had a weekend paper round which paid for my travel (which was £1.20 a day to get to anywhere in London).

This enabled me to have a much better CV than my peers which I began looking for work, so I got a better salary.

An internship or work experience is NOT the same as slavery. Slaves have no choice or say in the matter and there is a massive massive distinction.

Saying the two are the same IS simply wrong.

This is a normal post Fair enough.
But it still seems wrong and exploitative to me to expect a grown adult (graduate or otherwise) to work for nothing.

"I put up with it, why shouldn't everybody else?" is not a valid argument.

What sort of useful computer work (for example) would I expect to get from an untrained 14 year old.

Essentially you're really giving them free training at the expense of one of your paid employees time.

Cash isn't the only for of renumeration; Skills and experience are worth something, thats what I'm trying to say.

For a year? You're joking. But for a few weeks/months it can make perfect sense.

it's simply that for the period of their placement, they are not getting their 'benefits' for nothing. for some of them it could be quite an eye-opener, how the other half lives.

This is a normal post Myeh. Lower it to two 4.5 hour shifts a week, scrap JSA completely and give them the equivalent minimum wage.

This is a normal post I wouldn't actually have minded doing that,
it would have given me experience, at least. But they didn't even want me to look for part time jobs. To claim JSA "you have to be looking for full time work," even though that would have got me off benefits and there was no way I was going to get a full time job with no experience.

Stupid system is stupid.

This is a normal post Depends what you count as full time/part time.
Part time is (as far as I'm aware) anything 15 hours or under.
(, Tue 12 Feb 2013, 12:05, Reply)
This is a normal post I thought it was 30 hours,
but even 15 hours at minimum wage is more than JSA.

For the purposes of tax credits, it was 15 hours if you had kids, and 30 hours otherwise.

This is a normal post For the college I work at full time study is counted as 15+ hours a week.
The council say 17.5+ hours for council tax exemption for full time students, and someone else I can't quite remember insists on 21+ hours.

I also got a bit of a telling off for refering to the part-time admin as part-time depsite the fact she works almost half the hours I do, because she works 15+.

This is a normal post full time study might not be the same as full time work,
also this was about the hours I was supposed to be looking for, not the hours I was already doing. Or they might have just been talking shit, or the rules might have changed since then, it was almost 10 years ago.

This is a normal post I don't remember reading it in the rules,
but one time I printed off a couple of part-time job placements from the machine, and when I took them to my advisor he advised me that "you do realise we expect you to look for full time work," which surprised me then as much as it surprises you now.

This is a normal post You can do part-time work (under 16 hours a week, paid or voluntary) whilst on JSA,
as long as you declare any earnings when you sign on, so it can be deducted from your JSA. However, you still have to be seeking full-time work to continue to be eligible for JSA.

This is specific to JSA -- there are other benefits available to people working over 16 hours a week, or who are unable to work full-time.

This is a normal post Late reply, but you're wrong
www.judiciary.gov.uk/Resources/JCO/Documents/Judgments/reilly-wilson-v-secretary-state.pdf

Paragraph 35 (shortest thing in the whole document) says: "The judge found no breach of article 4". (EU thing on slavery and forced labour)

The ruling is that the regulations exceeded the bounds allowed under relevant legislation to some extent, but that notification and disclosure was definitely insufficient.

This is a normal post Your contributions are fairly seamless, so well done -
but the acting is awful, the storyboarding is lame, the sound is dire...
No-one seems to move - walking while talking is something even George Lucas can manage: trying sneaking and talking, or running and talking. The shots are poorly composed - there's an unnecessary thermos flask butting into shot in the first scene. The sound is dreadfully balanced, as though it was recorded straight in the room where the scene plays, and not a single second of post production was done on it - you should at least make sure the levels are similar, or appropriate: the sneaking character is talking louder than the geeky lady who's remotely instructing him.

There may be a good story to be told here, but I couldn't be bothered to watch it long enough to find out.
On the plus side, I did watch enough to try to put together few examples of how to improve it. You're welcome.

The film initially received an X-rating in 1976 and subsequently, an R-rating a year later with three minutes cut from the film. It was later re-released on VHS with a somewhat grandiose title roll preceding the movie noting that quite a bit of hardcore footage had originally been shot, but "could not be included" at the time.
