How long until your post appears in the What Gets on My Tits thread, Dusty?
"I hate mowing the lawn!"

I actually enjoy it! Just over one hour a week, and it's my best exercise. The cool shower and big glass of iced tea afterwards are a bonus. cool

I wish I could still mow the lawn, because it's actually a rather relaxing and satisfying job. Sadly, in 2013, I developed asthma due to the very high pollen count in the spring of that year. Now, I can't be around flowers or freshly mowed grass for too long, otherwise I'll have an asthma attack. The constant spray of the grass cutting triggers my allergy. sad

Maybe when it needs mowing again (my Dad mowed it on Saturday) I'll volunteer to help and see if I can do it without having an asthma attack. My condition was particularly bad throughout 2014, but it's improved a little bit this year.

I grew up with asthma throughout my early years, but now it's not so bad. I used to require a Primatene Mist inhaler. I think it's something I outgrew. Good luck with this annoying condition, NSOV smiley

Very sad to hear that Sawyer Sweeten (Geoffrey Barone in Everybody Loves Raymond) has taken his life. cry

Proof that any story that links famous people will get coverage, however untrue it is: today we're told that Jarvis Cocker wrote "Common People" about Varoufakis's wife laugh

I reckon it’s wishful thinking (the other Greek woman mentioned there sounds a likelier candidate) but I like Varoufakis’s ambiguous “House of Cards” quote at the end of that clip! He’s the most riveting politician I’ve ever come across – a real person amidst all the dull grey Eurocrats. If it was any of their wives, no one would even bother reporting the story grin

I've decided that I'm now happy with the election result. Sure, it's a shame that UKIP failed miserably, getting 1 seat despite attracting 12.6% of the vote (it's a broken system), but the Conservatives were my second choice, and now it's over we can all move on and hope for the best. 330 seats is pretty impressive, and over 11,000,000 Brits wanted Cameron re-elected, so I respect the majority decision.

Conservatives polled 11,334,920 votes from a total electorate of 46,425,386.......which is 24.4%. So less than a quarter of the electorate voted for a party which can now basically do what it wants. UKIP had 2.67 times the number of votes that the Scottish National Party polled but ended up with 55 less seats in Westminster.......

You're right the system is broken but nothing will change.

Nope. 36.8% with a total electorate of 30,657,063, according to Wikipedia.

The total electorate was 46,425,386, but only 30,657,063 of them voted.

I'm frankly appalled by the election results and it's hard to say which part of it appalled me the most, but I probably shouldn't go into it.

It’s true that 15,768,323 couldn’t be bothered to vote either for or against the Conservatives. But they don’t have the support of 36.8% of the electorate; as unclealbert said, less than 25% actually voted for them.

Agreed. UKIP, the Greens & the LibDems weren’t represented fairly, regardless of what anyone may think of their policies.
