I've finally gotten around to uploading a wedding video of us "walking" down the isle and a video of our first dance!
OK, here's a BBC article about "Embedded Water", i.e. the actual amount of water that's needed to produce stuff.
E.g. a cup of tea requires 30 litres (to grow the tea, etc) and coffee 140 litres.
Now, PANIC, PANIC, PANIC because tea/coffee is often grown in poor countries, so it's presented that every cup of coffee drunk in the UK takes 30 litres of water away from developing countries, you BAAASTARDS!!!
What I don't understand, is how they compress 30 litres of water in to tea leafs... yeah, that's right, it's a load of shiit really, because the water doesn't actually LEAVE the country, it gets recycled in it.
Yay! Spring! As Craig said:
Getting a real laugh from reading all the facebook posts by Londoners over the last 2 months when a bit of blue sky pops through the grey, or when a blossum appears. A lot of it sounds like a homeless person whose just found a cigarette in the gutter. Hope you guys have a decent summer this year!
And not to disappoint, here's some snaps I took on Sat at King George's Park (link to satellite view):
You know what's funny? Listening to a woman (several people away) who was as round as she was tall on a packed solid train, discussing LOUDLY on the phone that the doctor told her she was morbidly obese and if she keeps on eating she'll die. She then goes on to tell her friend that she didn't think she was THAT fat and promptly starts discussing dinner.
Wow, I hate to use terms like "EPIC FAIL!!! LOL!!!", but if I WAS to use such a term, it would be on this spam message that I just got. No, I don't often read spam, but for some odd reason I did for this one:
