Having a little talk this morning about our eating habits, I wondered exactly how much we do eat. Interesting findings. I left out the first five years because of age, although from birth I was a good eater. My estimation = 7 ton of spuds 2 1/2 ton of onions (I eat them like apples) 2 3/4 ton of greens 2 1/2 ton of meat 1 1/4 ton of fruit 3/4 ton of Friday home made curry night. Oh my Too hard to calculate everything else. Just in case you are wondering, I am 5ft 11in tall, 13st. I also work out at least 1 ton of the spuds was in chip form, another 1 1/2 ton in roast tatties. I tended to work things out on the lean side rather than over estimate. Cheers

Hello Kaga, I love useless information. Try this one. If the perforations do not tear off evenly on the toilet roll, tear back the top layer all the way around back to the other layer, now the perforations will be together. It is amazing how the Pope singled you out. Big grin

Morgana. You'd have thought God would have had something to say about that.

Not meaning to offend others' beliefs JohnB, from my life experience I don't believe in a god, I wonder what my grandfather would have thought of that being once a preacher.😮 Edited by member, 5th Dec 2014 10:42 am

morgana, neither do the EU and British governments. The EU banned creationism in 2007 and the British government has just done the same.

Morgana, I agree women listen better, but only in "shorthand". Which they do not understand. Example = Having being asked a question by nameless. Sitting on a bench opposite the London Eye, I remarked to a nameless female (that is because I wish to continue living) "I have just timed the wheel and it takes 7mins to do a quarter of a turn, that means it does one revolution in half an hour approx. so that means two turns an hour" About 15mins elapsed when out of the blue, I had a reply. "That does not do a revolution every quarter of an hour, more like 2 an hour, maybe." "I didn't say that" "You just told me that" Oh well, back to the drawing board. Wink

Thanks for that JohnB Well I've always known governments don't believe or should I say hypocrites that tend these churches on tv for us all to see them, flaunting their wealth, yet could sit and watch children suffer. More chance of a camel going through the eye of a needle than a rich man entering heaven, which says it all. I bet that's peeved the last Pope taking money from The Vatican and giving it to NASA to find God's handprint out in space.😀

😊😜😄😂 Sorry Mattash, can't stop laughing. In my day shorthand was squiggles. You should find that a compliment Mattash as women normally have the knack of switching off to children then coming back later to give them a clout around the earhole. Lucky you didn't get the clout around the earhole. 😁 Edited by member, 5th Dec 2014 5:03 pm

I love it! That could be a comedy sketch in its own right. In fact Monty Python had already worked out that the fairer half of the species never listen - not even to each other - and underlined it in this fantastic routine.... Monty Python on YouTube It can be summed up in that one exchange... "Been shopping?" "Nah.... been shopping". Say no more! Thumbs up
