Practising ‘factfulness’

I thought this was interesting and cheerful. And isn't 'factfulness' the same as being skeptical? Then we should all be happy bunnies :D

Re: Bell End Road

I have to say I'm puzzled as to why Wetwang is considered rude (my sheltered life again, I suppose). To me, it sounds like a name Tolkien might have come up with for a rather unpleasant stretch of marshland. I think it's American slang actually. But as far as I know wang or whang is something (I as...

Re: "The ultimate in water woo."

Well done, Buxton! I hope people make good use of it. I expect your local authority has tested the local spring water for safety.

Re: "The ultimate in water woo."

:beer I think I might be drinking raw water ...the tap water here in our part of Spain is horrible and down the road is a spring source of water that tastes wonderful.

Re: Paternoster lift closes

I had to use a lift like this once when I lived in Prague. I think it was in or close to Wenceslas square and it was a bit scary...I was going for a job interview but it was a good conversation piece! ( I didn't follow up the job as it was rubbish money)
