Channel 4 had ice sculptures standing in for the Conservative and ~~UKIP~~ ~~Brexit~~ Reform parties at a climate debate after both leaders declined an invitation to take part.

I'm an excellent example to the rest of the site when it comes to reposts 🤦

It's my fault, my default filter is top-12-hours.

I'm not sure how I would cope with 3 brazillian sharks of the coast of newfoundland.

How many billion is that?!

Don't be too confident of that: She could become a widow.

The matching is usually done with a maximum percentage of your salary.
Some employers might offer 3%, for example.

So if at that company you earn £24,000, pay 10% into your pension each month (£200), the company contributes £60, and you don't pay income tax on the money that went to the pension (probably £40 savings).

Which means that if you decide to just take the money instead, you'd only see £160 instead of £260 in your pension.

This is a nice run-down, thanks for sharing.

I've considered buying a roaster, but always wondered if it would actually be worth it. By the time I'd sourced good green beans, and put the time/energy into roasting, you're correct, and I think I probably would be better using my local (lovely) roastery!

I think this is a great idea, and I'd happily sticky a promo or decision/voting thread.

I don't think Flamingos will have any objections either, but I will ask when I have a sec.

Tory leadership race heats up in a similar way to last nights kebab.
With the same risk of limp lettuce.

I'm down to two 2.4GHz devices over the whole network now.

The day I can disable it entirely will be a happy one!

Fantastic news, imho.
Personal statements just felt like an extra thing that might cause your application to fail.
I'm 99% sure none of the technical degrees I applied for read mine, and I wouldn't blame them at all.

I can't see how anyone involved with allowing this isn't complicit.
What possible reason did the police of a foreign nation need to be physically there for, other than physically removing someone?

The traditional "british teeth" was the UK's dental industry focussing on healthy rather than pretty.
Nowadays, it's caused by underfunded patient slots at dentists.

You can find a private dentist pretty easily, but it's quite hard to get taken on as an NHS patient (which means when you need treatment for something, you're not in the capped NHS bands). Which is especially bad if you're eligible for completely free treatment, as you're blocked by available dentists.

The dentists are generally given funding (or access to funding) for a set amount of NHS patients to make up the difference between NHS capped costs and their true costs. And unfortunately, there often aren't enough slots.
I was lucky with my current dentist that they happened to have slots when I signed up. And a few years later, they let me know when slots were opening so I could add the rest of the household.
