  • I suffer terribly with back pain and spasms. I have tried all sorts, and the only thing that seems to budge it now is Robaxin 750g and a heat pad.

    You do have to get these as a private prescription as they are too expensive to give on the NHS but they work out about £25 for 100 tablets and are brilliant. I would speak to you GP about these.

    Don’t know if it’s an option for you but there are some great lease deals on Volvo V60’s at the moment, have a search if you’re interested but one I saw was £1500 deposit and £99 per month over 3 years at 8k pa. You never own it but it’s cheap for what you get and it’s their problem if something goes wrong.

    Education, no religion.

    If women have equal rights, values and education in all cultures, then their role in life won’t only be considered that of a breeding machine, where in many cultures 4-6 kids is considered preferable to 2.

    The human races greatest hope is a disease or natural disaster such as a large meteor to cull our numbers.

    If fizzy diet drinks dehydrate you I would be dead .
    It’s simply not true that this happens.
    At one point I lived abroad and in big areas you could not drink water it was not safe but you could get and drink Coke and Diet Coke and that what we drunk. it was hot and we where exercising we did not dehydrate and die.

    @stew That equation doesn’t really deal with the likelihood of life actually arising though does it? The chapter “Fraction of the above that actually go on to develop life, fl” touches on it saying that for one reason and other it appears to be a fairly likely outcome given the right conditions, but then this:

    Surely since to our knowledge life has only ever arisen once on Earth, all other things being equal, the possibility of the rise of life itself might be seen as being pretty unlikely? With a sample size of one positive planet (Earth) and one apparently negative but not yet properly surveyed planet (Mars) out of the presumably billions of potential…[Read more]

    In short no, unless expensive surgery on the legs. My brother in law is smaller than you, he uses shoes with built up soles, not quiet platforms.

    I don’t know what I have but it started on Boxing Day night with sickness that lasted pretty much all of the next day and now I am contending with a literal waterfall of mucus, yum, but I guess I do feel better. I used to be impervious to germs, hardly ever got colds or other bugs, until I started taking medication that surpresses my immune…[Read more]

    Legalising and destigmatising drugs might help. Although getting pissed is still fun and I suspect would continue to be a popular choice.

    David Nutts plans for booze substitutes are interesting, but I’m not convinced they’ll really work.

    I think the idea of young people wanting to stay sober is a non starter though. They’ll always want to get…[Read more]

  • No kids games should be doing this especially if they are not licensed and if there are no age restrictions on the game. I am sure there is some authority somewhere that you can get in contact to get them shut down.

    It’s a sad indictment of British culture that these are even required.

  • mo replied to the topic Best pubs in the uk in the forum General Chat 3 weeks ago

    I live in the peak district best pubs there are…

    Three Stags Head at Wardlow Mires
    Red Lion at Litton
    Bull at Foolow
    Packhorse inn at Little Long stone
    Quiet Woman
    The middle three do really good food too.

    For posh pubs, my local The Chequers at Froggatt is excellent as is the Devonshire Arms at Beeley.

    @el funny you should say that.

    As an Edinburgh resident and having thought about this carefully I must demur. Admittedly being shot at by a customer of the Coopers rest in Easter road did not endear me to that particular bistro and I believe a quiet pint in the Doocot in Muirhouse can turn into a trouser filling experience even if it isn’t…[Read more]

  • mo replied to the topic Best Robot vacuum cleaners? in the forum Tech 3 weeks, 3 days ago

    @troll When we got the first one, roomba was pretty much the only company in the market.

    We don’t have a cat, but I don’t believe they all hate them. I have seen videos of cats using them as nice heated chariots for moving between rooms without effort, and being able to side-swipe the dog as they travel past.

  • mo replied to the topic Best Robot vacuum cleaners? in the forum Tech 3 weeks, 3 days ago

    @el It won’t, so you need a regular vacuum cleaner for those occasional tasks. Vacuuming the stairs is now the biggest chore of that kind in our house.

    Also, pre-roomba: carefully scoop tablecloth up from dining room table, shake over sink, cursing when crumbs go over the floor
    Post-roomba: grab tablecloth and shake hurriedly over sink, not b…[Read more]

  • mo replied to the topic Best Robot vacuum cleaners? in the forum Tech 3 weeks, 3 days ago

    @sar Yes they are thorough. Our roombas do take a random trajectory but keep going much longer than a human cleaner and the randomness means that if they miss a spot one day they won’t keep missing it, unless it is genuinely hard to reach – if you have small rooms and lots of furniture it may struggle.

    For me the important thing is p…[Read more]

  • The only thing that works for me to stop me coughing is codeine linctus – it is absolutely brilliant!!! The codeine stops the ‘tickle’ in your throat. I’m so pleased my GP recommended it, if you are OK with codeine then do get some, you won’t be disappointed

    @mick That does make sense. Codeine is very similar chemically to morphine (and hero…[Read more]
