Probably about the same as you, Slag. Maybe a bit less 5-6 cups maybe. Weird thing is, I don't drink too much tea at home - mainly because I'm not organised enough to keep fresh milk in the flat. I'm not hugely bothered about the brand either - I'm a simple tea and milk man myself - I like it fairly...

Tetleys is better than Typhoo. Clipper is a good tea - a bit more expensive, because it's fairtrade. I've always thought that's pretty ironic. They claim to be guaranteeing a better deal for third world growers/workers, but the only reason they do it is because they charge more for the product in th...

I'm a fan of the races they do when they get touring car drivers to drive other vehicles. They've done camper vans, buses and airport vehicles. Season 12 episode 5 has the buses race on it (I only know because that's the episode that's up on iplayer at the moment - before anyone starts thinking I'm ...

The project I've been working on in work(!) for the last 11 months went live (flawlessly) on Monday. I am very happy.

Nah, it's more like after 9 years I've learned not to reuse old jokes.

The problem with it all for me is that it seems like the people at Wikileaks are more eager to be 'controversial' and 'anti-government' than they are to actually do any good. And that's a reckless position to take when we're talking about classified stuff from various countries. Not that I'm claimin...

Sad, but he was 84. He lived a decent length of time really.

And he wasn't 'found dead', he died in hospital after getting pneumonia two weeks previously - which is quite a normal way for an old person to go.

Star Trek by a mile. DS9 is brilliant, and the relaunch books are great, as is the Titan series. TNG is quite good fun, and Voyager has its moments. I never got the fuss about Star Wars, OK, the originals are decent ways to spend a couple of hours, but I don't get why everyone goes nuts over them. I...

I dunno, they reckon it's going to bring a bit of money to the eceonomy, so maybe it'll be good financially. Beyond the possibility of public funding, though, I'm not sure how this is different from any other celebrity wedding. Aside from the possibility that we'll get a day off out of it. Hmmm. Th...

Exactly Sades - that's how most people I know feel. I wish them well, but no more so than the millions(thousands? Whatever) of other people I don't know and have no particular reason to dislike who get married every year. It's quite irritating to have it blatted all over the news too. It's just not ...

More cheerfully, am I the only person who like James Blunt despite hating his music? Certainly I think he has more of a future on panel shows than singing... No you are not. I think he's a bit of a legend really. OK, his music isn't to my taste, but he seems like a properly decent bloke and pretty ...

That video makes me sad and confused. Not because of the guy dancing. That's hilarious. But he's dancing to a real song, isn't he? And I'm assuming it's a popular song. Is Katy Perry like the pop version of gangsta rap, where you just say something offensive over and over and somehow it becomes pop...
