Found the best MW drinking game.

blenderjunkie (10:15:11 PM): and seriously, i think pronouncing the volcano's name while hammered should be a legit game.

For everytime you mispronounce the volcano's name, you take a shot.

I liked this comment I read on the Beeb's letters page:

"Politicians are like babies' nappies.  They ought to be changed regularly, and for the same reason"

Priority is probably with people travelling back to Britain. Think

I saw on the news a bunch of kids on a fencing trip to Hong Kong (alright for some!) who were do to come back after 10 days of being over there and they've been told it'll be 3 weeks at least until they can come back.  Thats tough for kids I think Think

A little worrying that it caught them by surprise, if that can happen to them, I wonder if it can happen to our commercial airlines.

Well, I'm really looking forward to flying next month with BA for the first time and I'm not nervous about it. I also have a lot of trust in the skills of their pilots so if anything did happen with the engines, I think they'd still manage to recover like the other incident.

I'm sure it'll all be fine by the time you are due to go.  BA are great to fly with. Smile
