    I have just woken up, had breakfast, and walked the dog...

    I now have nothing to do

    So, I created this thread

    Ask me anything :D

    I don't expect people to be interested in me, I am not vain and self-obsessed

    But nonetheless, I thought that me doing this could be a bit of fun :D

    When you tie your shoes, do you use the two loop method, or do you prefer using one loop and pulling the other side under it to form the second loop?

    Now, that's a very good question

    What I do is, I make each lace into a loop

    I then tie the two loops together, thus securing the shoe

    That's the only method I know although I am aware there are others

    However, when I use the boots that I normally use I just slip my feet in, the laces on those are already tied but only very loosely

    I hope this answers your question?

    England

    I think it's going more or less in the right direction but perhaps not as quickly as it could be

    Have a look at this link: Hymen repair surgery and virginity testing to be banned in UK

    I think that is good news

    Perfectly; the two-loop method.
    Me, I'm partial to the single loop, pull-through technique. I know It seems more complicated, on its face, but I actually find it ergonomically easier than forming a second loop with my left hand.

    Questions # 2,3 & 4:
    Do you prefer The Guardian, or the BBC?
    Do you resent the fact that The Sun dropped the page three girls?
    Partygate? Thoughts?

    I prefer to watch the BBC

    Because I prefer watching TV and listening to the radio more than I do reading newspapers

    Yes, I know that's a very lazy reason

    However: I think that The Guardian is much less establishment than the BBC, which I think is Good

    So although I prefer to watch The BBC I actually have a much higher opinion of The Guardian

    If that makes any sense?

    That's news to me!

    I think it is better for the status of women in society that they no longer do page 3 "girls"

    Alternatively, perhaps they could have done page 3 men as well???

    I'm not at all surprised by any of the claims

    I think "Boris" (his actual name is Alexander and those who know him personally call him "Al") has been putting on an act to make himself more appealing to the masses - who are easily mislead by charisma

    Yes, he's charismatic, but the man's a ****

    Charisma is no reason to vote for someone

    I think history has taught us this

    Personally, I prefer less charismatic politicians

    Integrity is a much better trait, I think politicians should aim to have integrity, not to be charismatic

    Only a fool would vote for someone (or approve of someone) because of their charisma

    And I am pretty sure this is happening with Johnson

    I am enjoying Partygate very much, I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next

    I recently ran some old stinky boat shoes through a washing machine twice. First with detergent. Then with bleach. They came out somewhat mottled and torn, but at least they were wearable. After using some shoe goo to fix their soles I found them to be comfortable. I might try dying them black. They were originally grey (or gray).

    My question is: Do you have a calculator and what kind of?

    I have a scientific calculator but I don't know where it is

    If I ever need to do any sums I use the calculator that's on my phone

    I think that there will be a time will come when I'll be more happy and content

    Just not now!

    As in breakfast cereals?

    I'd say breakfast cereals and soup are sub-categories of the same thing

    But I have no word for that thing

    Perhaps "liquid-based meals"?

    Because cereals go with milk which is a liquid, and because soups are also liquid

    However, this raises a further question: are breakfast cereals sweet or savoury?????

    Personally, I'd go with sweet but I can see that it would be possible to argue this both ways

    Edit: depending on the cereals in question

    Indeed. Neither operation is acceptable.

    I asked which county you live in. I live in Kent.

    For the good of the country

    I have no idea when, there's no telling what could happen next
