I don't know what "torrents" are, unless you are referring to the rain in Singapore today.

And I'm not a Clarkson fan... way too right-wing for my taste.

I wish. Well, not really, don't want to move there permanently, but would love to spend several months in Rio each year (after recently living there for several months)... might very well do it, but right now there are other places I want to visit first (after I've saved up the money). So right now I'm home, which is Bulgaria.

Yeah, I don't like Clarkson either (didn't know about his views, but am not surprised), but I can stomach him in small doses on QI (where he is offset by the rest of them). He was just an example of how I really didn't enjoy Victoria Coren.

PS. Is there copyright police on these boards? I do apologise thenWink

For what?

EDIT: I just googled "torrents" and I understand what you mean now.

I honestly thought you were joking... Guess I must be ashamed of my evil pirate ways (oh, so that's why rum's my favourite liquor)... but that's the only wasyI can get my QI fix, I can't wait several years for them to come out on DVD's (if at all)...

I'm ok with change. Language evolves, no probs. And I don't care about the occasional typo.

But it's (it is) also about communication.

We have other threads on this topic so I won't go there (at 4am).

It's (it is) just that when I scan-read, a grammatical error stops the flow 'cos I have to re-read to confirm the real meaning.

Curiously, TheJackal's posts were consistently reversing "its" and "it's" so I quickly got used to the convention but Bucky Baby... I hope you are reading this... I could scream at you sometimes!

And Diablo, I will assume your error was deliberate just for LOLs. If not I'm gonna -1 ya arse!

If she is a chip off the old block, surely one can see the attraction to someone of Mr. Mitchell's ilk.

Haha! Disappointed that he's dating that particular woman - saw her on QI (where I get most of my info - and personal opinions - about British celebritiesWink) and must say I found her totally unfunny and unlikeable. What exactly is his "ilk"? Is she supposed to be his superior because of her family or are they both considered upper-class toffs? You must excuse my ignorance, I come from a simpler place, where we do not have as many class distinctions as you guysWink

QI ? Huh

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

QI is a british tv show that is hosted by stephen fry with a co-host alan davies and three random celebraties,its both educational and funny [another plus is you get to hear to stephen fry's accent which is lovely]
[QI stands for quite interesting i think dont quote me on that though]

Kudos. I've been trying to think of a good parody of the subject line. You sir, are a frickin' genius!
