You'd think it'd be useful to have Google Photos, which can find my face in the corner of a pic from 10 years ago, and type in https://photos.google.com/search/fireworks, to get relevant results.

They also produced a little booklet for soldiers that's a pretty interesting read. The first few pages are about how England is small but full of history, and that England doesn't like show-offs so the American soldiers weren't to start boasting or flashing their cash etc..
I once heard of a story of a US commander in Italy who absolutely hated his posting because he had several British Empire units under his command and wrote letters complaining about all the different races and nationals with religious, cultural and food requirements he was forced to deal with.
It really highlighted how the British Army had these considerations well established and had little problem with integrating units from around the Empire to work together compared to the Americans.

So there's a very interesting book called Sacred Sites, Contested Rites/rights: Pagan Engagements with Archaeological Monuments which obviously talks a lot about Stonehenge and the solstice events. One of the points discussed is that in a historical sense, there's no real reason to differentiate between the 'genuine religious ceremony' and the 'partying' - and I'm inclined to agree.
The stones are thousands of years old. Even if you can decide that sombre religious ceremony (which is argued was never part of the usage, comparing it to Middle Age churches being used as markets and such) is strictly seperate and incompatible with the party aspect, the revellers have as much of a claim to it as the neo-pagans, neo-druids and alternative lifestyle folk.
I've seen people using these before now:
I passed my theory a few months ago and my real test a few weeks ago. Best tip I can give is download a theory test app and just keep doing mock tests over and over and over until you consistently score above the pass rate. It lets you review which answers you get wrong so its easy to go back and remember for next time.
And instead of memorising all the stopping distances just memorise the formula for calculating it. 20mph x 2 is 40ft. And each 10mph up you go, you add 0.5 to the number you multiple. So 30mph is 2.5, 40 is 3 etc.
75% is common sense so there's just a few bits and bobs to get used to. Book the theory test a few weeks ago which gives you motivation to practice an hour a day at least. If you need more time you can change the date of the test free of charge but having it set in stone helped me stay motivated.
I love gov.uk sites. Afaiunderstand, it was a complete shambles for a very long time, but a few years ago it was all consolidated and redesigned nicely. And not design as in picking a nice colour scheme but design as in content, readability, user interaction, all that stuff.
There's a great, short and very readable book about it from the woman who spearheaded the whole thing: Content Design by Sarah Richards. Highly recommend it

Delia Smith's One Is Fun! actively made me upset when a well-meaning relative gave it to me in about 1999 https://www.amazon.co.uk/One-Coronet-Books-Delia-Smith/dp/0340389591
The recipes were probably fine, but the implication was "we expect you're going to be alone for the long haul"
There is a book of semen based recipes on Amazon...
I bought one for a friend's birthday, and it is truly disgusting. I recommend the recipe for man made oysters.

That priest is a right miscreant. What was it he said you did?
Last time I was there on a Sunday he stopped the service midway through and pointed right at me.
"You!" He called, clearly incensed. "You! Madam!"
I looked around a little confused. I'm a 26 year old man.
"You! Madam! You!" He boomed, clearly talking to me. "Get that thing out of my fucking church!"
I was taken aback, but I took my copy of The Second Cumming of Christ and left. Not been allowed back since.
The mopeds will be stolen and their faces well covered. They also know if they take their helmets off the police won't chase them. Its a very broken system. There is a great documentary on iplayer about this:

At the risk of making 99% of reddit audibly gasp and drop their wank sock in disgust, what is a mechanical keyboard and why is it different to a normal one?
I have this gaming mouse which cost about £200 (because the man at PC World coerced me) but I have no idea about keyboards.
I'm not sure I've ever had a terrible one, I don't like trying to go out into town, it always feels so forced so early 20's ones were a mediocre night out and feeling like shit for the next 2 days. I did nothing this year (plans fell through at the last minute and I didn't have the energy to fish for new ones) but on the plus side I feel great this morning.
Couple of my friends were caught up with the fire in Liverpool though and lost their car so I'd hazard a guess that this is probably one of their worst!

But a semi circle has way more curve than the Australia.
When you have two points on a circle, the distance along the circumference is called an arc and the straight line that cuts inside the circle is called a chord. Using 6371 km for the radius and 4000 km for the arc length in this calculator https://www.omnicalculator.com/math/arc-length the chord is 3935 km. I'm surprised it's such little difference tbh so reddit do your thing and correct me.

Myth Busters did an experiment about whether or not you get more/less/equally wet by running versus walking in rain. Lifehacker also has an article here on it. Both conclude running is better; you'll end up marginally less wet, plus you'll spend less time in the rain.
That said, they didn't factor in risk of slipping, or variation in terrain. Obviously, if there's a serious risk of slipping on your arse, ending up in a river, or skidding into traffic, walking is better.

If you go for charcoal (you should), get a chimney.
One match start every time. Fill it with briquettes. Soak some kitchen paper in cooking oil (ball up 3 or 4 sheets individually) and put them under the chimney. Then light the kitchen paper.
10-15 mins later you tip the coals into your bbq ready to cook on.

Still been having loads of fun in Elite Dangerous. Spent an hour or two yesterday hunting Skimmers and getting paid around 250k per "go and kill 3 of them, you'll find them here" mission.

As for gravy...IMO it is the crown of any meal [im guessing you didnt use instant?!]
Im gonna share my secret as far as gravy is concerned. Some people love to add worcestershire sauce, marmite, soy, beer/stout, etc etc etc... I did, and have. But found something so much better
[sounds bizzare, but go with me here]. To a brown gravy from/for ANY meat other than lamb.... add a good desert spoon per person of oyster sauce to the gravy. The rich, unique, and delicious result will surprise you. It "enriches" the gravy, rather than actually flavouring it to taste like oysters/seafood - so dont worry about that happening.
If possible, use Maekrua brand oyster sauce. Link just for visual ref. Although price is similar to what i pay for a 600ml bottle at my local couple of suppliers.
Maekrua is one of the TRUE oyster sauces, not "oyster flavoured" sauce, as you may see on many other cases/brands. And the oyster percentage content is much higher than the many others ive used. Ive plenty of experience with oyster sauce :-)
Yep, i know..... a Sino/Thai sauce in gravy for british/european meal?! oh, the horror!! But trust me, & give it a try. And let your family/guests taste the gravy before mentioning the secret ingredient [as always!] . Go easy on the salt, as the oyster sauce is a little salty anyway. Diners can add more seasoning at table if needed.
Great post OP . My god, i love good food.

This is probably more information than you require, but at any rate...
When viewing via desktop web browsers, at the top of a 'link post' (as opposed to a 'self post'), if that same link URL (image or anything else) was posted previously to another subreddit, an other discussions tab will display up there at the top of the page.
Clicking that give you a page linking to all the other reddit threads where the URL was posted.
Some subreddit CSS styles hide that other discussions tab, but with RES (the Reddit Enhancement Suite) extension, you can disable subreddit styles. FWIW, I usually disable them because for me it's more efficient to use the old layout (or maybe I'm just old).

Personally I'd suggest a galaxy note 7 from ao.com. Comes in two versions; £180 for one that works only with WiFi, i.e. you'll need to set the person up with broadband. Or, for £269 they do one that is WiFi and cellular, i.e. it will take a sim card so they can make and receive calls or video calls by using mobile data.
I would suggest checking out Giffgaff, various bundles to choose from.
I'd recommend you get the tablet delivered to your house. Set it up (runs on Android so basically like a big phone) for them and install a few apps like WhatsApp and Skype. Make a note of their usernames and make sure friends and family add them from their side, much easier.

I frequently buy my GP surgery/nurses/pharmacy/various hospital wards and departments these biscuits in either a 48 pack or 100 pack. The fact that they’re a small 2 pack means they can be stored away in uniform pockets for when they get a 5 minute break and there’s a fair choice for everyone (I also go get a couple of packs of gluten free biscuits from the supermarket to cover everyone). The fact that you have been so thoughtful will mean a massive amount to them, especially at a time where some GP surgeries (assuming it is your GP surgery) are getting a lot of grumpy patients over issues with getting appointments/jabs etc.
I hope you’re feeling better!

The chicken in ready meals is the lowest grade chicken available. They use the cheapest pieces of meat and bulk it out with collagen and meat glue to give you the impression of chunks of meat, when it's only about 20% actual meat. Its one of the cheapest ingredients.
The factories that make these ready meals churn them out in massive quantities, you're talking about half a kilo of chicken, scale that up to 15 tons of chicken and the cost to add an extra 50p per meal for using fresh ingredients means an extra £15000 to that line.
Yeah it may be the price difference of a couple of quid when you're cooking at home but ready meal factories cut costs down to the bone to save wherever they can. Hence why a restaurant curry tastes vibrant and a supermarket curry tastes like watered down slop.
Ready meals are more science than cooking, barely anything fresh is used, its all processed beyond recognition, you should read This book, then you'll see why supermarket curries are shit compared to fresh cooked food.
Corvids like peanuts. If you get them still in their shells it cuts down on the pigeon mafia because they're not smart enough to open them. We also get jays when we put down monkey nuts.
We mostly feed fatballs which you can get quite cheaply in bulk from amazon (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0091SHOPG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 - this lot lasts for several months).
We've recently started getting a couple of rooks coming in - they actually pick up whole fat balls and fly off with them.... quite impressive to see, but I'm glad there's only a couple of them.
We've got a ridiculous amount of mugs and I refuse to get rid of any of them, yet I still only use one of them 90% of the time.
It's this one, though it only cost me about a fiver at the time not 60 quid.
Jeff Waynes - War of the Worlds So I can potter about my island going OOOOOLLLLAAAAAAAA,
Book - Probably How to survive on a desert island guide since knowing my luck the first berry I find will have my shit out my spleen.
Luxury item would maybe be a nice big tent. That way I have a pretty big head start on the whole "not dying immediately" thing.
